Obama universalizes the Holocaust

You just knew this was coming. President Obama's Holocaust Day declaration.
United States President Barack Obama published a declaration on Sunday for Holocaust Remembrance Day in which he said the memory of the those who suffered at the hands of the Nazis must be honored.

The declaration added, "The Holocaust calls on all people to renew their commitment to prevent genocide, and confront antisemitism and all forms of prejudice."
What does "and all forms of prejudice" have to do with it? The only ethnic group other than the Jews that was targeted was the gypsies. No one was targeted to the extent that the Jews were. The Nazis - may their name be obliterated - were obsessed with the Jews. Were it not for their obsession with murdering Jews, they might have won the war. How can anyone say that the Holocaust is about anything or anyone other than Jews and anti-Semitism? Why does President Oschmucka insist on universalizing anything that has to do with Jews?

No other people on earth than the Jews was slated for complete destruction. I think this is another sign the world really hasn't grasped the significance of the Holocaust.

i knew you would find something wrong with his comments

however, he is right, even though it appears that the world has learned nothing from the holocaust and instead of confronting evil and other genocides, spends its time focused on what israel is doing.

had they learned, maybe the genocidal acts that have occurred in rwanda and darfur would have been avoided

My group already individually contacted the White House yesterday to protest that Obama needn't memorialize the Holocaust not to mention lecture on Antisemitism. He himself in a few short weeks threw enough flames into the fire to heat up the already smoldering pot.

The fact he universalizes the Shoah is secondary.

I expect no one other then those of us who lost just about entire families in the Shoah due to innate Antisemitism to utter the words, never again!! The mere fact the world insists on rewriting the fact Hitler was an atheist when he was baptized a catholic grinds at my very being. The fact the Vatican choose to not excommunicate Hitler not to mention those that aided Hitler proves Jews were led to their slaughter because we were still blamed for killing Christ.

We still pay! We thought Islamists picked up the ball on what Christianity made us pay for, but we see the Church and movies like Passion of the Christ and people like the antisemite who directed/wrote it still punish us for a sin we never committed.

Only we should utter the words, "never forget."

Antisemitism no matter how people deny it or in your face or in the closest it might be, one fact remains, the behavior of the world in 2010 is not so dissimilar to the round-ups and libels and wholesale slaughter of innocent Jews to scapegoating us, obsessive picking on us to singling us out... for if this were not the case Israel would not suffer today.

Make no mistake. If not for the smallest amount of antisemitism the world would have no feelings for the terrorist Palestinians and our elected leaders would easily speak out loud as to exactly who the victim and the victimizer truly is.

Most of all, Iran would have already been robbed of their insane intent to wipe Israel off the map. If the world truly meant, "NEVER AGAIN" those who pledged to stop Iran would have actually made good on their promise.

Obviously you're forgetting/denying the Naqba holocaust where tens of millions of innocent ethnic Palestinians were wiped off the face of the earth by three Jews.

He wants to get 'palis' pseudo-Holocaust in there as well. You know the language of the terrorist sympathizers, the ones that claim to decry terrorism against anyone, while singling out jews for opprobrium, and denying that 'palis' are terrorists.

This is a sad day in the US.

strangely, Husian Barak didnĀ“t mention Cambodja, Rwanda or Darfur

cs. he simply only cares for Muslims and Islam

Barry Hussein universalized the history and celebration of Pesach. Now he appropriates the Holocaust.

This Islamo-Marxist "internationalist" is an arrogant, ignorant, vicious Israel-hater.

maybe i missed where he equated the holocaust to what is happening in israel....cuz it sure isnt in the text

you guys are jumping to conclusions that arent there

the holocaust is not the only genocide in history

it is unique in how it was carried out....with purpose and planning never seen on its scale before or since

but to deny that its lessons should be globalized is absurd

the sad thing is....the lessons have not been learned

and so the horrors of cambodia, rwanda and darfur occurred...while the un sat by and did nothing....cuz they were too busy decrying everything that israel was doing

that is a fact

I liked your response to the LA Times Op-Ed piece, but this is just plain silly. There are
universals that are human and it could be easily argued, more easily than your argument, that Obama was furthering the charge given we Jews "To be a light unto the nations" by holding us up as a prime example of what must not be visited upon anyone, any people.
