The most dangerous leader of the Jewish state has long since turned Holocaust Remembrance Day into an opportunity for fearmongering about "the Iranian threat."


The massacre of October 7 has given rise to a new competitor to the Nazi enemy from Tehran. The dimensions of the disaster, the cruelty of the perpetrators, and the intensity of the hatred that they radiated invite a comparison to the horrors of World War II. The helplessness of the defense establishment on that accursed Shabbat in the face of the acts of murder and rape arouses associations with "like lambs to the slaughter" being led to the gas chambers in Auschwitz.


Over six months after the disaster, almost no evening passes without the TV channels bringing new testimony from the massacre. Day after day the horrors are described, and the Jewish people sink deeper into trauma. On Holocaust Remembrance Day 2024, this trauma mingled with the endless trauma of World War II and reinforced it.


Around the Seder table, we said, "In every generation, they rise up to destroy us. But the Holy One, Blessed be He, delivers us from their hands." That means that the Holocaust isn't a one-time event in the history of the Jewish people. "The Holocaust" is a code name for a threatening situation, which over the years has become a tool in the hands of politicians and shapers of public opinion.


The Holocaust has no time and no place. It can happen at any time, anywhere, and in any context. The common denominator of all those "Holocausts" is the desire to destroy the Jewish people. Beginning with Pharoah, continuing with the kings of Babylonia and Persia, the Greeks, the Romans, the Crusaders, the Nazis, and ending with the Arabs...

The media’s role is to draw attention away from what the students are protesting – complicity in genocide – and engineer a moral panic to leave the genocide undisturbed

As mass student protests quickly spread to campuses across the United States last week, and others took hold in Britain and elsewhere in Europe, the Western media gave centre stage to one man to arbitrate on whether the demonstrations should be allowed to continue: US President Joe Biden.


The establishment media reverentially relayed the president’s message that the protests were violent and dangerous, treating his assessment as if it had been handed down on a tablet of stone.


Biden declared the protesters had no "right to cause chaos", giving the green light for police to go in with even greater force to clear the encampments.


This week, Biden raised the stakes further by suggesting the protests were evidence of a “ferocious surge” of antisemitism in the US.


According to reports, more than 2,000 protesters have been arrested after some university administrators – under growing pressure from the White House and their own wealthy donors – called in local police.


In approving the crushing of dissent, Biden contradicted himself: "We are not an authoritarian nation where we silence people or squash dissent. But order must prevail."


One small problem went unmentioned: Biden was not a disinterested party. In fact, his conflict of interest was so gigantic it could, like the damage to Gaza, be seen from outer space.


The students were calling on their universities to pull all investments from companies that are assisting Israel in carrying out what the World Court has called a “plausible” genocide in Gaza. Those weapons are being supplied in huge quantities largely thanks to the decisions of one man.


Yes, Joe Biden...

As the pier is expected to be finished in May, questions remain unanswered. Does it really aim to provide Gaza with immediate aid provisions?


The rubble and ruins that once were vibrant streets now stand as a blatant testament to the devastating impact of the unending Israeli assault on Gaza.


As Israel launched a barrage of bombings and artillery shelling starting on October 7, Gaza was plunged into a deeper abyss of suffering, while Israel declared the northern region of the Strip as a war zone.


Although many refused to abandon their homes, massive crowds of Palestinians fled south, seeking refuge and sustenance.


Meanwhile, in the north, Israel employed a crucial tactic, using hunger as a weapon to pressure Palestinian residents to escape, while aiming to consolidate control over Gaza city.


With aid being banned from entering the city for months, the humanitarian crisis deepened in Gaza, as Israel only allowed a very limited number of trucks. This relief, although insufficient, came at a cost.


Trucks were only allowed to pass through two main streets, which fell under the control of the Israeli army: Al-Rasheed Street and Salah Ad-Din Street.


With no international institutions or local bodies permitted to run the distribution process of humanitarian aid in northern Gaza, crowds of starving Palestinians used to rush toward the trucks, risking their own lives to secure provisions for their families.


One tragic incident, which took place at the Nabulsi roundabout, captured the world’s attention on February 29.


At least 100 people were killed and many more wounded as the Israeli army fired shells and opened fire at crowds awaiting humanitarian aid...
