80 years ago this week, 1 year before WWII began, the “International Community” held a conference to discuss the plight of Jews under Nazi rule. Jews had been stripped of citizenship & legal rights and were trying to flee as refugees. The world decided to do...nothing.
After the International Community decided not to help the Jews, Chaim Weizmann, future President of Israel, said “The world seemed to be divided into two parts – those places where the Jews could not live and those where they could not enter." #EvianConference
People may wonder why Jews and Israelis are so cynical and distrustful of the “International Community.” It’s because when the knife was at our throats, and everyone knew it, they still did nothing. #EvianConference
Jews learned from the #EvianConference and the #Holocaust that followed, that we can’t trust anyone else to care about our safety and our lives. We need a country and an army of our own to protect us, because no one else will. It is as true today as it was 80 years ago. #Israel

@SussexFriends @mr_markjacobs @NewYorker @washingtonpost @nytimes @UKLabour Can we talk about what it means for Western Civ that a national leader on the level of Jeremy Corbyn is an undeniable antisemite? That a major national party in a wealthy democracy is filled with Jew Hatred? That the US political equivalents seem headed down the same road?
@SussexFriends @mr_markjacobs @NewYorker @washingtonpost @nytimes @UKLabour For one thing, it is political DEATH for any party that becomes the party of Jew hatred. Not that they won’t win elections - in the short run they may, and it might look like a winning strategy.
@SussexFriends @mr_markjacobs @NewYorker @washingtonpost @nytimes @UKLabour But in the long run, any party and any society that embraces mass antisemitism destroys itself. Because antisemitism always come with other baggage. Paranoia. Embracing of conspiracy theories. Purging of non-orthodox thinkers. Intellectual decline, followed by economic decline.
