Open letter to Hedy Epstein

Hedy Epstein is a child of Holocaust victims. She survived the war because she was sent to England. Her parents had nowhere to go, and were murdered in Auschwitz.
She now
sympathizes with Jewkillers. I publish here the letter I sent to her as e-mail.


All I know about you is from your website, and what I read about your anti-Israel speech at Berkeley University.

It seems that, like a few other Jews who survived the war, you learned from the Shoah to jump at every (perveived) wrong and take action for the (seemingly) oppressed, the kind of action that would have saved your parents and family.
First of all, you are not a holocaust survivor. You do not have any 'Nazi Holocaust experiences'. You were sent to England, and lucky for you. Your parents had 'Nazi Holocaust experiences'. In fact, it was what killed them. Germans, Poles and many others conspired to kill them, and every other Jew, for being Jews.

I can almost HEAR you say 'Who do you think you are, I know this better than anyone'. Well, it seems you have forgotten way too much.

My father was a holocaust survivor. He did have 'Nazi Holocaust experiences', as you put it. So did my grandfather and his surviving brother. Like the vast majority of Jews, they learned a different lesson from those experiences. The rest of my father's family, like yours, did not survive WW2.

It is bad enough for a goy to compare the Israeli's to the Nazi's. It's being done so often in fact it loses any meaning, it's become cheap.
But when a Jew does it, not only does it signify a very confused person, it also lends extra power to the Jewhaters' arguments. Which comes down to empowering those who would not hesitate to commit another Shoah.

So far I've neglected to name any arguments as to why the very comparison between Hitler Germany and present-day Israel is atrocious. This comparison is really too ridiculous to warrant a reaction, but in your case an exception may be worthwhile.

The war against the Jews never stopped. Your parents were not allowed into any country where they would have escaped their doom, and they were murdered. The Jews that had fled to Palestine before the war faced a close personal friend of Adolf Hitler as their most murderous enemy, but the Germans never made it to Jeruzalem, and
Haj Amin Al-Husseini, Grand Mufti of Jeruzalem had to hide in Syria and Egypt after the war as a war criminal. He was only the most famous Arab to call on Hitler to do in Palestine what he did in Auschwitz, Treblinka, Sobibor and all the other death- and concentration camps. Al-Husseini raised an SS-battalion almost single-handedly.

The Grand-Mufti's apprentice and favourite nephew was
Yasser Arafat. An Egyptian born and raised.

If you think this conflict is between Israel and the Arabs calling themselves 'Palestinians' (named after a country that never existed, and only invented by Arafat to create a separate identity and ethnicity that also NEVER existed) you are deluded. For more than a century now the Arabs as a whole have been waging war against the Jews, with help in various forms of the West.

Originally, all of what is now Jordan, Israel and the disputed territories was promised - in writing - to the Jews. Now, they've ended up with about 12% of the original mandate of Palestine. And even that will never be accepted by the Arabs. Look at
this map. It is not an exaggeration. All of it is Muslim, most of it is Arab. But the 'Palestinians' want the part where the Jews live.

You are siding with the wrong people. You are siding with the allies of those who murdered your family in a war 60 years ago. For all the world, that war is over, but not for the Jews. And not for the allies of the Nazi's.

Wether you are aware of it or not, you are siding with those who, if given the chance, would commit another Holocaust. Think about it. Ask yourself if you really want to be on the side of the moral and philosophical descendants of those who murdered your family.
