Oh @colinbrazierGBN @GBNEWS

Why allow #EmotionalBlackmailing #AntiGunFanatic to project own deflection on reasonable opponent


AND give her not just opening statement & more time but last word too

To distinguish post #WW1 modern rifles with new materials styling ergonomics from pre #WW1 brass & wood antique musket style ones

With bit of practice can shoot as fast with latter as former

The Afterword of @TimothyDSnyder's "Bloodlands" makes staggeringly inaccurate statements. Portraying the #Holocaust as just one element of a territorially-determined phenomenon of mass killing in East Europe, Snyder plays down the extent of West and Central European victims. 1/
He asserts: "German Jews were not very numerous, and most of them survived." In fact, of Germany's pre-Third Reich population of approximately 525,000 Jews, an estimated 160,000 were murdered. The survivors consisted almost entirely of Jews who had left Germany before 1939. 2/
Snyder continues: "Ninety-seven percent of the Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust had nothing to do with German culture." A peculiar choice of words. Does this exclude Dutch Jews, of whom approximately 120,000 (out of a pre-war population of 140,000) were murdered? 3/

🚨🚨🇷🇺Calling Hitler, A Jew, is worse than denying the #Holocaust.
Russia may get away with everything it did but not with this one. 🇮🇱Waiting for official statement by Israeli foreign minister...
“Foreign Minister Lavrov's remarks are both an unforgivable & outrageous statement & a terrible historical error. The Jews did not murder themselves in the Holocaust. The lowest level of racism against the Jews is to accuse the Jews themselves of anti-Semitism.”: 🇮🇱FM Lapid Image

Multiple UN Secretaries-General have condemned the UN's "Human Rights Council" (UNHRC) for its systemic bias and discrimination against #Israel, and it's only getting worse.…
According to leading historians, most of the 500-750,000 Palestinian refugees from 1948 fled to escape a war of destruction that Palestinian leaders & Arab states launched against #Israel. A small minority were expelled by Israeli forces or left because Arab forces told them to.
This refugee crisis (which Palestinians call the #Nakba) was followed by nearly 850,000 Jews fleeing or being expelled from Arab states. There is no comparison between these tragedies and the #Holocaust - an industrial-scale genocide in which the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews.

6 April 1944 | The Gestapo under the direction of SS-Hauptsturmführer Klaus Barbie raided the Jewish orphanage in French town of #Izieu. 44 children and their 7 educators were taken to #Drancy & later deported to #Auschwitz. Only one person survived.
Beate and Serge Klarsfeld, who brought Klaus Barbie to justice in 1983, later wrote: "Forty-four children deported - no mere statistic, but rather forty-four tragedies which continue to cause us pain ..."
In this photo you can see the children on the balcony of the children's home in Izieu, summer 1943. Seated in the center, in the second row from the bottom is Laja Feldblum. She was the only survivor of the Gestapo raid on the children's home on 6 April 1944.

Germany: The notorious neo-Nazi Ursula Haverbeck was sentenced to a 12-month prison sentence in Berlin for denying the murder of over a million Jews at the Auschwitz concentration and extermination camp.…
"You're not a Holocaust researcher, you're a Holocaust denier," the presiding judge said in the courtroom, adding "it's not knowledge you're spreading, it's poison."
Highlighting the danger of Holocaust denial is essential. It's an awful conspiracy theory. Although it is factually similar to flat Earth claims, it is in fact a dangerous & hideous carrier of antisemitism & hatred. Deniers hate. They harass & insult the memory of the victims.

Did you ever wonder how the world stood by and watched the #Holocaust unfold?

The gas chambers didn’t start until 1942, but the #genocide started in 1939.

Pour yourself a relaxing tea, or coffee - or perhaps, for tonight's article, something a little stronger.
This article will look at Adolf Hitler’s plan for the invasion of #Poland in 1939 - discussing only the events of 1939.

However, rather than provide supporting links - it’s all well documented - I will link to contemporary articles about Russia’s #genocide in #Ukraine.
Hitler's grand plan, as described in Mein Kampf, was to acquire "living space" for German colonists to settle in Eastern Europe, expanding the German borders by conquest. The problem? Those lands were already settled - by Poles, Ukrainians, and more.

Oekraïne heeft enorm geleden onder de Nazi-terreur.
8 miljoen oorlogsslachtoffers (5 miljoen burgers, vrouwen en kinderen) door de SS/Wehrmacht. Daar onder 1,6 miljoen Oekraïense Joden die door de nazi's werden vermoord.
En daarvoor even zeer onder de Stalin-terreur
Het hele grondgebied van Oekraïne, dat tussen 1939 en 1944 door de Wehrmacht werd bezet, werd totaal verwoest door de bezettende Nazi-macht: 700 steden, 28.000 dorpen, 300.000 fabrieken.
Poetin doet het over. Rechts Kiev 1941
2,4 miljoen vrouwen en mannen werden als zogenaamde Ostarbeiter uit het bezette Oekraïne naar het Derde Rijk gedeporteerd, waar ze als ondermensen tot slaaf werden gemaakt en het zwaarste werk moesten doen en er heel vaak aan stierven.

Jozef & Wiktoria Ulma risked their lives to help Jews during the #Holocaust. On 24 March 1944 the German police discovered the Jews in hiding.

The Jewish family was shot, as was the entire Ulma family - parents & 6 children. Wiktoria was 7 months pregnant.
March 24 - the anniversary of the murder of the Ulma family - is today in Poland the National Day of Remembrance of Poles who saved Jews during German occupiation. See this thread to learn 11 stories of #Righteous linked with #Auschwitz.

1) The author has a point here, but is also fundamentally mistaken IMHO on "#genocide." What follows is a somewhat extensive thread:
2) The term, "genocide," is specific and refers to the mass murder of a particular group of people with the goal of erasing them from existence. "Genocide" and mass murder are not the same, and that distinction means something.
3) But how is what's going on genocide if the Russians are killing Russian speakers, as well as Ukrainian speakers. Isn't that mass murder generally rather than genocide specifically, as in the Shoah?

Just watched #TheKashmirFiles and I am so grateful to @vivekagnihotri for being brave enough to present before us a bloody chapter in our history without any whitewashing or filters. This movie is as hardhitting as it gets. 1/10
Frankly, I was apprehensive about watching the movie because I knew that it would trigger emotions that I prefer to keep supressed. And I was right. The movie is raw — alternately inducing pain, sorrow, anger, fear, horror, frustration yet hope. 2/10
The performances are outstanding, in particular those of @AnupamPKher @bhashasumbli @mithunda_off and Pallavi Joshi. But content is king… it is the story (backed by meticulous research) that is the true hero of this film. Kudos to @vivekagnihotri for that. 3/10

Lviv, #Ukraine is a beautiful and welcoming city that I have spent a good deal of time in. These are a few of the places at risk.*

*Of course, human suffering is most important, but after that so is the loss of important cultural space.…
Many of these are part of a recent emergence of interest/concern for Jewish and Holocaust history in Ukraine. They are likely particularly vulnerable if the Russians get to/attack Lviv.

This memory work will be massively set back by this war already sadly.

@MaddowBlog On a factual note: Hitler did kill ethnic Germans & German-speaking people: those who opposed the Nazi regime, those who resisted, those who did not fit into the 'Weltanschauung'. He ordered the murder of people with different disabilities & finally the murder of German Jewry.

In de Amsterdamse bioscoop Pathé Tuschinski komt de première van GIDEON, een documentaire over Kamerlid Gideon van Meijeren (Forum voor Democratie). Gemaakt door platform voor extreem rechts Café Weltschmerz,
Het antisemitisme binnen de partij van Thierry Baudet is virulent. Gideon van Meijeren ontkende recent de #holocaust
Schandelijk dat @Pathe hiermee de nagedachtenis van de oprichter van het theater de Joodse Abraham Tuschinski besmeurt.
Hij werd in 1942 in Auschwitz vermoord
De oprichter van Tuschinski werd in 1942 samen met zijn vrouw Manja vanuit kamp Westerbork op transport gesteld naar Auschwitz waar zij op 17 september 1942 werden vermoord. 56 jaar oud.
@Pathe wil nota bene een film over Gideon van Meijeren vertonen.

Reflecting on #US-#Saudi Unforgeable Massacres, #Holocaust Continues in #Yemen.

Seven years of futile war on Yemen have passed, and the US-Saudi coalition continues to commit massacres against thousands of defenseless civilians, targets children, steals wealth, brutally
destroys homes, markets and infrastructure, and imposes a land, sea and air blockade to rob all Yemenis.
In the latest reports of the number of Yemeni victims as a result of the Saudi aggression which were issued on January 25, 2022, the Minister of Public Health and
Population in the Sana’a government, dr. Taha Al-Mutawakel, announced that the number of victims reached 47,000, between martyrs and wounded, adding that the coalition’s crimes against the Yemeni people would be "a disgrace to the United Nations, its organizations and the
