Why Israel exists

Want to know why Israel exists? Here’s why. Quote.

Quote:Nazi murder rates during the height of the Holocaust was almost three times higher than previously thought, and only declined once there was “no one left to kill”, a study suggests.

At the genocidal regime’s peak about 15,000 Jews were being murdered every day in the death camps of German-occupied Poland under Operation Reinhard.

Previous estimates suggested that 6000 people were murdered daily at Auschwitz alone, but exact figures were difficult to verify because the deaths were covered up by the Nazis.

To determine the true picture, Professor Lewi Stone, of the University of Tel Aviv in Israel, studied records of the “special trains” used to transport millions of people to the three camps of Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka. He found a “three-month phase of hyperintense killing” highlighting the Nazis’ “pure focused goal of obliterating the entire Jewish people of occupied Poland in as short a time as possible”.

[…]”To my surprise, historians have completely avoided quantitative approaches for examining this period. But the graphs show with chilling immediacy the bloodlust of the Nazi programme to obliterate the Jewish people in as short a time as possible,” he said. “The subsequent rapid plunge in the death rate in November and December 1942 simply reflects that there were very few Jewish victims left alive to murder. It highlights the frenzied killing the Nazis planned for the Final Solution to the Jewish Question and their ability and eagerness to carry it out.”End of quote.

Read that again. The murder (and it was murder, not just killing) only stopped because there was no one left to kill.

Quote:[…]The new murder rate would mean the Rwandan genocide, in which 800,000 people were murdered in just 100 days, was not the most intense of the 20th century.
End of quote.

The Telegraph

Let’s not forget that it’s not a numbers game, though. More Russians died under Stalin and even more Chinese died under Mao. The difference with those is they weren’t systematic and intentional. Hitler deliberately set out to murder an entire race.

I don’t care if you think that Israel is an apartheid state. I don’t care if you think Israel treats Palestinians badly. You’d be wrong of course, but you have a right to that opinion. What I do care about is if you think Israel has no right to exist.

Because Israel exists, should ever there be a country or nation where the Holocaust starts again, Jews there know there is a haven, their homeland, that they can go to.

In other words Israel exists so the Holocaust can never happen again.

That is why Israel has the absolute right to exist.

Six days in June: Jerusalem


“Uvetardemat ilan va’even
Shvuyah bachalomah,
Ha’ir asher badad yoshevet /nitzevet
Uvelibah chomah.”

“And in the slumber of tree and stone
Captive in her dream
The city that sits solitary
And in its midst is a wall.”

?Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (Jerusalem of Gold) – Traditional Hebrew Folk Song


Jerusalem: a city divided within itself.

Jerusalem is a name which has been spoken of many times in the Jewish story, both in old and new times.

Oftentimes it has risen and fallen throughout the millennia, and borne witness to events of great sufferings and trials.

In June of 1967, the Old City of Jerusalem lay just outside of the cease fire line, which had been drawn up at the end of the War of Independence.

The reunification of Jerusalem: as an open, undamaged and undivided city; were the orders given to the Israeli ground forces; as the truth of the first days, strike was heard across the airwaves, amongst the people who anxiously looked towards their families? protection.

Six days in June: Sinai and Golan


“Syria’s forces are ready not only to repulse the aggression, but to initiate the act of liberation itself, and to explode the Zionist presence in the Arab homeland. The Syrian army, with its finger on the trigger, is united… I as a military man, believe that the time has come to enter into a battle of annihilation.”

? Syrian Defence Minister Hafez Assad, May 20, 1967


As the jets of the Israeli Air Force began strafing Egyptian Air bases, three armoured brigades of the Israeli Army under the command of Major General Israel Tal, began their assault on enemy positions in the Gaza Strip, with the overall goal of achieving an armoured breakthrough towards the Rafah Gap and access to the Philidelphi Corridor.

Like the opposing air forces, the Israeli ground units were also heavily outnumbered by their enemies, and therefore had to rely?upon a?combination of superior planning and specialised modifications?to equipment and ordinance.

Six days in June: First strike


“The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold”

Lord Byron ‘The Destruction of Sennacherib’


The jets from the Israeli Air Force were low, almost skimming across the surface of the flat calm Mediterranean Sea and travelling in excess of 500 mph.

It was the pre-dawn hours of Monday the 5th of June, 1967, and Israel was going to war.

It was just before 7:00 am when the first air raid sirens began to be heard throughout the towns and cities of Israel, followed by the sound of rushing feet.

Major General Mordechai Hod, commander of the Israeli Air Force, had given the final order for Operation Focus to begin.

Six days in June: Two reluctant leaders

“Israel wants to make it clear to the government of Egypt that it has no aggressive intentions whatsoever against any Arab state at all”?- Levi Eshkol, May 15th 1967.

There were at least two leaders in the Middle East with little or no desire for war in mid-1967, and they just happened to be the men who were in charge of the main competing protagonists: Egypt and Israel.

Nasser had been largely manipulated into the position he found himself in, by a combination of rumour mongering from the Soviet Union and his own people?s desire for revenge against Israel.

Six days in June: Prelude to war


“Our path to Palestine will not be covered with a red carpet or with yellow sand. Our path to Palestine will be covered with blood? In order that we may liberate Palestine, the Arab nation must unite, the Arab armies must unite, and a unified plan of action must be established” – Gamal Abdel Nasser, 1965.

It had been nineteen years since the 1948 War of Independence, and during this time the tiny nation of Israel; settled predominantly by the survivors of the worst anti-Semite pogrom in recent history had fought for, and ultimately won for themselves and their children, some breathing space.

The land which had been so bitterly fought?over represented more than just a place to call home.

It represented a return to a way of life in?a homeland where the Jewish people could be born, live, love, worship, die and ultimately be buried. And while the United Nations had passed a resolution recognising Israel?s right to exist, this would have amounted to nothing if this?desperate struggle for survival had been lost.

But the tensions caused by this return had not gone away.

To the north, east, south and west, Israel found itself surrounded by Arab states, all armed with a burning desire for revenge and an ultimate final reckoning.

Six days in June: Betrayal, endurance and victory


“Once I really am in power, my first and foremost task will be the annihilation of the Jews. As soon as I have the power to do so, I will have gallows built in rows?at the Marienplatz in Munich, for example?as many as traffic allows. Then the Jews will be hanged indiscriminately, and they will remain hanging until they stink; they will hang there as long as the principles of hygiene permit. As soon as they have been untied, the next batch will be strung up, and so on down the line, until the last Jew in Munich has been exterminated. Other cities will follow suit, precisely in this fashion, until all Germany has been completely cleansed of Jews.”

Statement by Adolf Hitler to Josef Heil, 1922. Quoted from Gerald Fleming’s “Hitler and the Final Solution“, page 17.

On the 25th of August 1939, the Zionist General Council ordered the early and immediate dissolution of the 21st Zionist Congress, being held in Geneva, Switzerland.

Amid the drum beats of impending war in Europe, the 576 delegates filed out of the building with the words of Dr. Chaim Weizmann still ringing in their ears:? ?we will not resort to the law of the jungle?.
