Elie Wiesel On Haaretz

By Gilad Atzmon

Elie Wiesel, the world's most famous Holocaust survivor, the man who turned the Holocaust into a business career gave this week an interview to Haaretz.
 
This kosher ‘humanist’ whose interest in pain is confined to ‘one people only’ stated that he hopes that “the Mossad, which caught a man like Eichmann, will be able to catch Ahmadinejad and get him tried in an international court.”
 
This Zionist Elder must have forgotten that Eichmann wasn’t tried in an international court, he was actually sentenced to death by an Israeli court. And while Ahmadinejad travels freely around the world, it is Israeli mass murderers and war criminals who have to think twice before embarking on an international flight.

In the entire interview, neither Haaretz nor Wiesel referred to the Palestinian holocaust. Seemingly, both the Jewish media outlet and the Shoa merchant are concerned only with the suffering of one people.

Elie Wiesel, may be one of the  strongest examples of the banality of Zionist mind. He is concerned only with the primacy of Jewish suffering and has totally failed to transform the Holocaust into a universal message.
Wiesel is critical of Germany, German people and their culture. “We must not forget what civilized people once did. People raised on Kant, Fichte and Hegel. People who listened to Beethoven and read Schiller in the morning, and in the afternoon killed children and parents."
 
But what about those people who don’t read Kant, Fichte and Hegel, but instead read the Old Testament and Wiesel’s Shoa literature? Do they not kill children and parents? Do they not engage in mass killings of innocent civilians pouring white phosphorous on UNRA shelters? Yes, they do – and for more than six decades, slightly longer than Wiesel’s Shoa.
