The World Stayed Silent

Iran repeatedly calls for the destruction of Israel. Indifference is not an option.

When the Jews were being slaughtered in the Holocaust, the world remained silent. Today Iran repeatedly calls for the destruction of Israel and attacks ,through its proxy terrorist groups, Jewish and Israeli civilians around the world. If Iran gets the nuclear bomb will the world stay silent again?

Jews are Silent NOW!

We ask why no one cried when we were being destroyed in the Holocaust? I am shocked at the silence of the Jewish World at the Christian Holocaust that is going on now and we are not shouting out. So I guess when good people do nothing the same result happens pathetic apathy even from us. After ISIS is done with them they will come for us who then will cry out?

It seem as the world remains silent on ISRAEL, many evils engulfs the world. The more this world continues to oppress ISRAEL and the JEWISH people , it would become much darker.

an analytical look at indifference to Israel

There is a gazillion dollars to be made if their is all out war in the Middle East. The companies that will sponsor and profit from this disaster are sadly AMERICAN with high profile investors.
Even more disturbing for Aish readers are all the Jewish sur names and multi nationals that litter the directories within these companies . To better understand the indifference to Israel , the following companies are directly promoting the war effort for all participants .
Boeing , Lockheed- Martin, General Dynamics, Elwood National Forge Co., Raytheon Missile Systems .
When you read the names of people and families we all know involved in this venture that pay lip service to Israel ... It all becomes Crystal Clear .

The world remains silent as they did before. If the world will understand that this NOT AN ISRAELI BUT A WORLD"S PROBLEM!! they might wake up. Israel, to most, is unimportant and to others it's the reason for all the troubles in the world, if there were no Jews the world would be a better place. Hitler preached this most successfully and so many believed it then as they do now. The overall picture today is much more disastrous than it was then, but, being led by the USA the world agrees to a nuclear Iran and Iran agrees to ISIS and ISIS agrees to all other murderous madman so , as long as nothing happens to you at your front door - like Pearl Harbor - , all is well. Kerry might even wave a white paper in the Vienna or Lausanne telling you all that there is "Peace in our time" and you'll believe him because if he doesn't sign the treaty the Iranian power will be unleashed earlier than it will be anyway. PLEASE!!! get off Israel, we're just a pawn for incitement and spread of hatred. Think of yourselves wherever you are for if you're not a Muslim your head might roll anywhere.

let us pray for Jewish enlightenment -only Hashem can help us!

There are no political solutions to the Jewish problem. We should have learned that.

Practice emuna, teshuva and make Aliyah.

The Jews wanted to leave but no country wanted to take them.

Today, I don't see any groundswell to take the thousands fleeing Syria. It seems the same people who condemned the US in 1940 say today, we don't need more immigrants, we need to look our for ourselves, and why get involved in other country's problems.

The purpose of Israel

Israel was created for 2 reasons. The Zionist wanted Palestine and the Western Nations wanted a military nation to do their bidding in the Middle East .
Israel has been shot full of political and financial steroids by the USA and now it's time to pay up. It is Israel who put itself at risk by simply existing and should strike the first if they are threatened . The USA is teathered to very different politics and cannot behave as if they were Israel .
Unlike the past Israel is a nation with a military . Jews of America , France, Britain and elsewhere can easily enlist in the Israeli military and take matters into their own hands . If Israel attacked Isil and terrorist in Yemen they would become the darlings of the world . The investment that the USA and Britain put into Israel would prove to be worthwhile .

The purpose of Israel....NOT.

What a thoughtless comment. If Israel attacked ANYBODY and for ANY reason...THEY would be at fault. The world would find a way to make them the bad guys. It's always been that way and it is worse now than ever. Israel was the darling for a few years after 1948 and after Entebbe, but now the Jews are and will remain the world's scapegoat.

Not Quite

Pay up?!! What arrogance! Israel was created by G-d for the Jews and not for the goyim's convenience, whatever they may think. And considering how they all scream at us each time we perform the slightest action in our own defence, do you really think they would welcome more extensive actions? Unless, of course, it was at their bidding and for their convenience only.

Again we see the sons of Liberty in the forefront with Obama handing Iran's Mullah, a deadly weapon as it was in the 30, when Roosevelt was indifferent to the fate of the Jews. False promises on false premises. We face the same dangers with the addition of NAZI Muslim "colonist s" as we in Hitlers time. The world is sleeping on its watch.

Man's inhumanity to man; a tragic and moving film.

Iran must be prevented from having any weapons of mass destruction.

The U.S. can now, as it could in WWII both before and after Hitler came to power, do much more to prevent destruction (once again) of the Jewish people We CAN prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and need to stand up to world opinion and, for once, do the right thing-PROTECT Israel and the Jewish people unequivocally.

I was there....

I was born in Berlin on August 16, 1928.
I was there, I saw what was in plain sight.
I was attacked by dog trained by a nazi.
I was with my mother when she was slapped in the face
by brown-shirted troopers.
I was in Prison with my parents after we had been arrested.
After we were separated, I never saw them again.
I was notified that they had been murdered in Sobibor and Lublin.
Now, 70 years afterwards, antisemitism is on the rise again. The world blames Israel. The diaspora Jews have "other priorities" and also blame Israel.
"Never Again"?

My sincerest sympathy and Love

Dear Gunter Hiller, I am so sorry what you have suffered at the hands of Nazi terrorists and at the loss of your parents.
God Bless you and I pray you somehow have been miraculously comforted from the pain you have gone through and I wish you much love and blessings, and to all of Israel. G-d Bless1 xo
