As you have probably heard, the anti-Semites are "among us", urging their supporters to deny the specific inclusion of the Jewish Holocaust in the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights. I copy from a recent message:
Please note our petition at http://www.jhcwc.org for a permanent Holocaust gallery at the future Canadian Museum for Human Rights. On January 26, 2010, we will be presenting the results of this petition to the Content Advisory Committee who will be presenting their recommendations to the Canadian government. We would greatly appreciate your signing the petition (if you have not already done so) and forwarding this information to as many people as possible from within your list of contacts...

With all due respect to Belle Millo and the Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre, I could see this one coming a mile off. See, the thing about "human rights" is that it has become the primary vehicle for bashing Israel, the world's only Jewish state. And one of the most heinous ways of getting at Israel is via Holocaust denial, the reasoning being, of course, no Holocaust, no Israel. So the Jews, who had hoped that reminding the world of the Holocaust--"Never Again!" and all that--would be the best way of preventing another genocide from occurring have had their hopes dashed. The harsh reality is that reminding the world about the Holocaust is not protecting the Jews of today. Neither, for that matter, is genuflecting before that falsest of deities, "human rights." It is evident to anyone brave enough to open his eyes that "human rights" has devolved into a cult of victimhood in whose pantheon the Palestinians and other Muslims, not the Jews, claim and are graciously accorded "most favoured victim" status.
