The video by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust was an appalling attempt to hijack the Holocaust into a Muslim victim-hood narrative. This has been very well analysed in articles such as this by Aussie Dave and this by Fahrenheit211. But it is the fact that the Muslim woman is wearing the yellow star - and the HMDT's pathetic response to this (above) that is the most galling. How gullible do they think we are - is cancer also a creation of the Nazis?
The Islamists and their leftist useful idiots have already attempted to steal Jewish history and narrative as their own (as in "Moses and Jesus were Palestinian Muslim Arabs", "Jerusalem was always Muslim"). We have even seen the "Palestinianisation" of Anne Frank. But to requisition Holocaust victims - replete with Yellow star - as Muslims is beyond the pale. My father was a Holocaust survivor. If he had lived to see this video he would have died of a heart attack anyway - it is insulting to real survivors and it perverts and trivializing the real story of the Holocaust. My father was acutely aware that, in contrast to the lie perpetuated by this kind of propaganda video, the only real threat of a new Holocaust again is against the Jews via the never ending terrorism and incitement against Israel mounted by Muslims and their leftist useful idiots throughout the world. The liberal notion that somehow the Muslims are the 'new Jews' is a lie. In the UK and USA Jews are actually 5-20 times more likely to be the victims of racist attacks than Muslims. The 'new Jews' are in fact, as always, the Jews. If the HMDT wanted to force home the message 'never again' it should have featured the fears faced by young Jews in the West today and the terrorism and incitement against the Jews of Israel.
This article by Karen Harradine really hits the nail on the head concerning the "arrogance of those who claim to commemorate our dead yet gleefully advocate for the destruction of Israel and the death of even more Jews." There are literally hundreds of thousands of Islamists and leftists in the UK alone (including the leader of the Labour party and many in the House of Commons and Lords) who fit that description - you can see them at every anti-Israel demo and hear them calling in to every radio station. And the fact that (as is clear from this article) there is at least one trustee of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust who fits that description is beyond shameful. How did Britain's 'official Jews' sink so low as to allow themselves to be manipulated like this?
