How Quckly They Forget

Sabbath of Remembrance

Yesterday, synagogues throughout the world commemorated Shabbat Zachor (Sabbath of Remembrance). On that day the first known enemy of the Hebrews, Amalek, is remembered. On that day as well the combined Hate Lists of the ADL and the Wiesenthal Centre are dug out to confirm that Amalek still lives today.

Yes, Amalek still lives. There is no doubt in my mind about that, BUT NOT ON THOSE LISTS. Amalek lives right here in Israel. He is remembered every day of the year by Palestinians, but especially today, the 19th anniversary of the massacre in Hebron by a crazed American zionist.

He is remembered every day that a Palestinian child is lowered into the grave, yet another victim of Israeli terrorism.


He is remembered when a family in Gaza visits the graves of loved ones killed by Israeli soldiers.

How quickly zionism forgets the war crimes committed daily against the Palestinians. How quickly the Western World forgets them as well, mostly due to media blackouts in the zionist controlled press in those countries.


The fate of those who resist the above atrocities is also remembered …

Yes, we remember those crimes every day of the year. And yes, we will never forget them or forgive those that committed them.
