Official Jewry considers it a real coup that they managed to entice "hardened secular" Muslim Tarek Fatah to visit Auschwitz. The question I would ask the O.J.s is the same one I have posed about Holocaust memorial in general: What's the point unless you draw a direct line between the Holocaust and today's Zionhass, and unless you underscore the need to save the State of Israel from suffering European Jewry's fate?
Do they seriously believe Fatah--who once told a TVO audience that he had the "cred" to weigh in on matters Middle Eastern because he used to belong to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and who remains adamant in his opposition to Israel--is going to return from Auschwitz a changed man, Zionism-wise? 'Tis to laugh.
I believe it's called "posturing".
