In honour of the Jewish holiday of #Chanukah now, I'm going to make a THREAD here with some powerful Chanukah images (c/- @yadvashem) from 'Before, During and After the #Holocaust'.

Starting with this, perhaps most powerful one: Kiel, Germany (1932)

1919 The Crucifixion of 6 million Jews Must Stop!
1945 An Open Letter To Prime Minister Atlee
"It was our very unhappy conviction all along that the responsibility for the extinction of 6 million Jews in Europe was not Hitler's alone. THE ENTIRE CHRISTIAN WORLD SHARES THAT RESPONSIBILITY."

We’re witnessing a slow-motion #Holocaust in Occupied #EastTurkistan. MILLIONS of Muslims, including the elderly, have been disappeared into Communist #China’s system of #ConcentrationCamps. Meanwhile, #Beijing is murdering CEO’s & even abducted the head of @INTERPOL. Crisis.
… it’s vital that #PacificRim nations coalesce around our shared values: #HumanRights, #PressFreedoms, & #RuleOfLaw. The time to push back on Communist #China is NOW. #America 🇺🇸, #Japan 🇯🇵, #Australia 🇦🇺, #India 🇮🇳, #Taiwan 🇹🇼, & others… join together to stop these atrocities!
… the free world — I hope you still cherish it — has never faced a more daunting & urgent threat that the one posed by Communist #China’s totalitarian regime. Nazi Germany’s population was 90 million. Soviet Russia’s was 293 million. Communist China? 1.386 BILLION. Must act NOW.

If you vote for "Republicans" you are voting for a totalitarian America. You are voting for the trump family, business and wealthy politicians to get wealthier at your expense. You are voting away your own rights.

They will always need an enemy to supposedly be "protecting" you from. When they run out of outsiders to go after they will begin to turn on your own citizens, as they are already doing to blacks and democrats, eventually you or someone you love will be the target.
2/
In an atmosphere where all it takes is someone to report you for suspicious activity to make you a target, neighbors begin to turn on neighbors and family on family when there are disagreements. It becomes easy to "get revenge" by turning someone in even if they did nothing.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

My position has never been anti-Labour. I am a proud Brit, who waves the flag and whose hard working parents and grandparents came from places such as Woolwich and Newcastle. For most of my life I’ve battled antisemitism found in politically disenfranchised ideologies.
My personal experience left me in no doubt of the moral imperative behind #Zionism. Like most Jewish families, more branches are missing from the family tree than those that remain. Not just from the #Holocaust but from the relentless persecution that preceded it.
Zionism was an outstanding success because it was so tragically right. The Jews don’t just have a right to self-determination but a desperate need for it. #Israel is the home of a globally persecuted people. Here too they are hounded, but in #israel they can defend themselves.

how come we are spied on in every possible way (#5eyes, #InQTel & hundreds others) and everything is valid to you (& me), the average guy to court, to get conviction, to... fucking it, everything is legal.
But 'we have everything', except that everybody is
2- #MakingADeal because we need to collect evidence in 'whatever legal way'?
Are you fucking kidding me?
None of you have a problem with that?
3-More venting later...
4-That compound that 'we blew up', did Trump speak out against that? If yes, please link me to it. If not, why not? Aren't the 'white hats' in control now? Why are we hiding evidence?
5-And if there is no condemnation and no talk, doesn't that mean that:

Meet #Israel's #Hasbara, which means #Propaganda, MSM Censorship Application👇🤨
This app came out about last year, and it is still on the iTunes store.
The app posts daily missions & TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SAY

"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
As it will be proved from the quotes below:
#ICC4Israel #EthnicCleaning #Occupation #BDS #Gaza
Source:palestineremembered.com/Acre/Famous-Zi…👈
#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality
“We must expel the Arabs and take their places…”~#DavidBenGurion
Born in 1886 as David Green (Gruen) in Plonsk, #Poland. He is considered one of the three founding figures of Zionism beside #ChaimWeizmann & #Herzl.

In einem Theaterstück zum Thema #Rassismus tut ein #Nazi-Darsteller eben das, was #Nazis tun - rassistisch beleidigen.
Resultat: Shitstorm.
Klingt komisch? War aber so.

...soll er denn sonst tun?
Soll er den Baseballschläger beiseite legen & sagen "Gehen Sie bitte nach Hause, Sie Person of Colour"?
Solch ein #Nazi wäre eine Witzfigur.
Solch ein Nazi macht keine Angst.
Solch ein Nazi vermittelt nicht, was der Schrecken seiner Ideologie ist.

Wie will man also den Schrecken und den #Terror von #Rassismus & #Faschismus vermitteln, wenn man diesen nicht mehr in Worte kleiden kann?

80 years ago this week, 1 year before WWII began, the “International Community” held a conference to discuss the plight of Jews under Nazi rule. Jews had been stripped of citizenship & legal rights and were trying to flee as refugees. The world decided to do...nothing.
After the International Community decided not to help the Jews, Chaim Weizmann, future President of Israel, said “The world seemed to be divided into two parts – those places where the Jews could not live and those where they could not enter." #EvianConference
People may wonder why Jews and Israelis are so cynical and distrustful of the “International Community.” It’s because when the knife was at our throats, and everyone knew it, they still did nothing. #EvianConference

#Israel will never recognize #Palestine,illegal segregated settlements in the #WestBank keep growing & #Gaza is a #ConcentrationCamp.
THE 2-STATE SOLUTION FACADE ENABLES #ISRAEL TO CLAIM THEY'RE A DEMOCRACY,allowing settlers in the occupied territories to vote & #Palestinians not
#Netanyahu:"I Deceived the #US to Destroy Oslo Accords"
#Israel never wanted peace,they already occupy #Palestine, only maintain the 2-state solution topic alive so they don't have to let Palestinians vote while claiming to be a Democracy.

Joe Goldberg and Natan Doron said they had been repeatedly abused to their faces by pro-#Corbyn #Labour members — including fellow councillors — with crude allusions to their race or insulting references to the #Holocaust 👇
Goldberg the council’s cabinet member for economic development was accused by #Labour councillor of “bagel-barrel politics”
