Misuse of The Holocaust Du Jour

Anne Frank Was a Refugee, Too

Well, yes, but when Anne and her family were hiding out in that Amsterdam attack it was because there was no Jewish state to take them in.

Not counting the seven countries included in Donald Trump's temporary refugee freeze (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen ), there are scores of other Muslim nations in the world which could possibly offer them a haven; there are also many Western nations--Canada included--whose doors remain open.

So not only is the Anne Frank analogy wildly inaccurate, it tries to leverage Jewish suffering during the Holocaust for the sake of Muslim "refugees" who come from places where Jews are reviled every bit as much as they were in Hitler's Germany.

How sickening is that?

Update: There's a certain inconsistency, however, in Trump's thinking because Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt--which, trust me, have jihadis galore--aren't included in the freeze.
