JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: DANISH PRIME MINISTER TRAVELS TO ISRAEL FOR HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE – BUT HER PURPOSE IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING ELSE AND RATHER DARK – THE HOLOCAUST WAS EUROPEAN AND HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MIDDLE EAST – SOMETHING PEOPLE LOSE SIGHT OF – ISRAEL HOLDS THE MEMORY CAPTIVE FOR ITS OWN PURPOSES OF EXPLOITING AND ABUSING OTHERS   Leave a comment

“Denmark’s Prime Minister goes to Israel and uses the Holocaust to incite against immigrants”

“There is an ugly anti-Semitism in Denmark today, which wasn’t there earlier. Because of immigration” [Title given an interview with the Prime Minister]

The Holocaust, of course, had nothing to do with the Middle East, either contemporary or Biblical, but modern Israel holds it as a valuable and useful captive for its purposes of control and abuse of others.

(The Holocaust was an event involving two groups of Germanic Europeans, the Ashkenazi Jews who spoke a dialect of German, Yiddish, and many other Germans who were anti-Semitic and turned to Nazism in despair over effects of the WWI Versailles Treaty and the Great Depression.)

The Danish Prime Minister is doing the same thing Israel does, only for her own purposes, which are considerably less than heroic or admirable.

But, then, we have so many blurred and confused situations in the world today. So much of our geopolitical environment is manufactured.

And that fact simply reflects the impact of America’s postwar global drive for empire, not exactly one of the world’s great causes or projects for human and democratic rights

Quite the opposite, indeed. Empires suppress others. They could not exist otherwise.

And what is contemporary Israel but a highly privileged American imperial colony in the Middle East?
