In my previous blog post I made a number of comments about recent history and the holocaust. I suggested that much effort is being expended to keep the holocaust memories alive versus allowing them to fade into the dust bin of history. Without doubt the attempt to eliminate one of the most productive ethnic groups in western civilization had profound and continuing consequences. These consequences present a powerful argument for the value of remembering. Recently I came across an article that summarizes these sequelae more eloquently than I am able to. I would like to share them with my readers.
“EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ”
By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
“I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz … We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
“The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
“They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
“And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others.”
Some might regard the comments about Islamic immigrants as too harsh. Yet, statistics of their failure to assimilate, crimes commited, terrorism and social disruption seem to validate the criticism found in the article.
