Israel Under Attack! - Our Rapid Response Team Needs YOUR Help! - Donate Now

At sundown on May 5th, the nation of Israel will come to a halt.  Sirens will wail across the country.  People will stop driving, stop walking, and simply stand silently.  It is Yom HaShoah—the day when Israel renews the holy vow “Never Again.”  The demonic evil of anti-Semitism did not go away when the Holocaust ended…it is still alive and active in our world today.

And it must be confronted…

 The only reason Auschwitz continued in operation until very near the end of the war is that those who could have stopped it did nothing.  The United States refused to bomb the railroad tracks leading to Auschwitz, with boxcars transporting innocent Jews to their deaths in the ovens there. Alan Dulles, a U.S. diplomat assigned to monitor Nazi intelligence furnished the U.S. government with a multitude of Nazi documents marked “top secret.” None of the approximately 300 documents provided specifically remarked on the killing of Jews, nor did any reveal the seriousness of Hitler’s “final solution.” Neither was there any indication that the railroad tracks to Auschwitz should be bombed.

Why did America and its allies look away?  The answer is anti-Semitism; as with a cancer, it mutates and takes on many forms. Today, anti-Zionism is the new anti-Semitism. To understand this, one only need look at the #1 country on which the UN vents its spleen over human rights and promotes the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement: Israel.

Anti-Semitism is the reason the U.S. and Great Britain, and indeed, much of the world, closed their borders to Jewish refugees. A “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy was implemented in the 1930s when the events in Germany were uncovered.

The British and the Americans combined dropped some 2.7 million tons of bombs on Germany. American planes were also used to drop supplies to Polish fighters. Such missions were commonplace during World War II. Perhaps it is not difficult, then, to understand why one of the most damning charges brought against Roosevelt and his administration was the failure to acquiesce to bombing the railroad lines that carried boxcars to Auschwitz. They were filled with Jews destined for the gas chambers inside its compound.

It was possible that by the spring of 1944 such an action would have been practicable, yet it was rejected with the official explanation that it would have taken necessary men and airplanes away from definitive operations in other areas. That was seen as a smokescreen, especially since the Allies had already marked for destruction industrial complexes near the death camp.  

Historians believe that had American bombers been sent to target the railroads, thousands of Jews from Hungary and Slovakia might have lived. Sadly, polls taken during the late 1930s and early 1940s revealed more than 50 percent of the U.S. public surveyed asserted that Jews were avaricious and unscrupulous. In response to U.S. refusal to aid Jews fleeing the Holocaust, Benjamin Netanyahu’s father Ben-Zion said, “The spirit of the Swastika hovers over the Stars and Stripes.”

The German company Ig Farben actually operated its own dedicated concentration camp!  As the Second World War erupted, the company was the leading manufacturer in operation in Europe and fourth on the list of worldwide corporations. An Ig Farben’s subsidiary distributed Zyklon B to Auschwitz. That was the poison gas utilized to kill over one million Jews in the gas chambers there.

Statistics reveal that more than one of six Jews slaughtered in Europe was slain in Auschwitz. Woefully, the life expectancy of the Jewish workers at Buna Werke was only three to four months. For those working in the mines, it was barely one month. Those deemed unfit to work at the facility were gassed.

Ig Farben’s massive factory near Auschwitz was built to exploit the workforce imprisoned there. That concentration camp was, from its inception, an Ig Farben undertaking. The plant supplied both synthetic rubber and liquid fuel.  It also manufactured synthetic, high-performance fuels including aviation gasoline, an extremely crude version of bunker oil for ships, plastic synthetic fibers, stabilizers, and pharmaceuticals.

Before the war, Germany had been forced to import 95 percent of its rubber, but due to Ig Farben, that number soon shrank to 7 percent. Ig Farben also ran the mines that provided two million tons of coal needed each year for both its factories. They were able to do this due to the more than two million inmates that passed through Auschwitz Camp #1 to meet Farben’s labor demands.

There are numerous questions surrounding Roosevelt and his refusal to at least allow the quota of 200,000 Jews to enter the U.S. Why were those places left unfilled? Why did the pleas of Jews trying to escape Hitler’s “final solution” fall on deaf ears? Why were those aboard the St. Louis denied entry into the U.S.? Why were the railroad tracks leading to Auschwitz not bombed? Why did the U.S. not bomb the Ig Farben plants? Why? Why? Why?

The question is not historical.  The Western world, including America is once again failing to take action to defend Israel.  In fact, many are trying to tie Israel’s hands as it defends itself against the worst attack since the miracle rebirth of the Jewish state in 1948.
