The Berlin nurse saw it all

The fancy language of boycotting Israel because of this, and because of that, does not fool people, like me, who’ve been around the block a few times.

They want us back

For Jews, Holocaust remembrance is a time to shed tears and to vow – Never Again.

Others, most recently Ireland…well, they remember the Holocaust as the good old days. Those were the days when they could do with us as they pleased.

Seems they want to do it again.

The fancy language of boycotting Israel because of this, and because of that, does not fool people, like me, who’ve been around the block a few times.

We know the score and how they’ll do anything to try and trick the Jewish people out of the Land.

Here’s the truth in a nutshell. They resent the fact that the Jewish people have their own country. Why is this so difficult to understand? It is so obvious.


It’s driving them crazy that the Jewish people are free at last from their clutches.

Do I need to repeat this? Let’s put it like this – It’s driving them crazy that the Jewish people are free at last from their clutches.

They cannot toy with the Jews anymore…except from a distance. There is an Israel to take care of business. Only that causes them such rage, stress and anxiety.

It’s got nothing to do with their “West Bank” (our Judea Samaria) or anything else they call “occupied territory;” fabricated complaints only to keep Israel tottering on the defensive.

They can’t get used to the idea that the Jews have a country and are home at last. For that reason, they make up boycotts and Resolutions from one pretext to another.

Notice how the nations (certainly the United Nations) have the Holy Land already cut up and RESERVED for their pals, Israel’s sworn enemies.

No, they say. Hands off. You may not build that patio beyond that specified line in Jerusalem – it’s being held, it’s being saved, it is being RESERVED for the Arabs. No Jews allowed.

Everything, after all, belongs to the Muslims – now even much of Europe.

So why, they say, do you need Israel? Leave. Give it up. Come back to us, and once again place yourselves into the loving arms of our tender mercies.

Some may have noticed that I skipped a beat when Holocaust Remembrance Day came up. Maybe that’s because I remember it every day and covered it here and here.

To get with the program belatedly, this --

Of the more than Six Million stories, for some reason, I don’t know why, now days later I remember meeting a woman waiting for a train in Atlantic City.

We got to talking. She was a librarian somewhere in South Jersey. She was Jewish and a Survivor and she spoke about it without emotion.

No need for motion when the story is enough.

“I used to be a nurse,” she opened up after we began swapping stories.

So she used to be a nurse. This was in a Berlin hospital…and before the war.

“What those German nurses used to do,” she recalled – “they’d pick up Jewish newborns from their beds, row by row, and smash their heads against the wall.”

That…that is what the Irish and the rest of them remember as the good old days…and why they want us back.

Thank God for Israel.
