      Holocaust Remembrance Day at the UN


      Fox News reports it is Holocaust remembrance time at the United Nations. Once a year, Jews from around New York, a dwindling number of Holocaust survivors, occasional celebrities, and precious few friends, file into the General Assembly Hall and grant the U.N. the privilege of appearing to care.  

      This year’s speakers include Steven Spielberg. When it is over, the year-round ritual censure of the Jewish state will resume. says Fox News.

      Characteristic of “International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust” is the scarcity of express emphasis on Israel, save for the remarks of the Israeli ambassador.  

      Fox News adds despite the fact that the U.N. was erected on the ashes of the Jewish people, the General Assembly has never adopted a resolution dedicated specifically to anti-semitism.

      Modern Israel, if it had existed, would not have allowed six million Jews or one million children to perish while railway lines delivering human cargo to their final destination were left intact.  And yet, the well-being of the only country dedicated to saving the Jewish people is generally peripheral.
