The perils of ignoring Holocaust history

The perils of ignoring Holocaust history | Israel Reflections | Scoop.it
Deborah Lipstadt says Ken Livingstone's comments on Hitler and Zionism are part of a revolting effort to discredit Israel with false links to the Third Reich.
Erel Shalit's insight:

Hitler was a Zionist.

Pardon me?
Until recently anyone who uttered such a statement would have been deemed mad. This past week, however, Ken Livingstone, former mayor of London and a member of Parliament, did just that, saying "Hitler was supporting Zionism" while surrounded by reporters and cameras. So far, he seems unwilling to plead insanity or to apologize for his remarks. Read more

Presidential Election 2016: An American Tragedy

Presidential Election 2016: An American Tragedy | Israel Reflections | Scoop.it
David Remnick on the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency and the threat it poses to the United States and its minorities.
Erel Shalit's insight:

David Remnick writes, "The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy. On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President—a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit—and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety." Read more
