Let’s talk about the Farhud, where Arabs trained by the Nazis in Baghdad, killed, maimed and committed numerous atrocities against the Jewish population on the two days on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot in 1941. The Farhud was the beginning of the end of 2,600 years of Jewish life in Iraq. This event commenced with a rampage of mass murder, mutilation, rape, burning and looting. The carnage would be forever seared upon the collective Iraqi Jewish consciousness.
Until now, the term “Farhud” and the riots and subsequent persecution of the Iraqi Jews during Holocaust and has been completely omitted from virtually all Holocaust study and memorials. This turning point event–the Farhud–was recently resurrected, during the fall of 2004, by a series of Iraqi community seminars, an award-winning bestselling book by author Edwin Black, as well as recent lectures and articles on the subject.
The Farhud happened in 1941. Israel wasn’t reborn until 1948.
So was it the “occupation” of the “thepoorpalestinianpeople” that caused the Farhud? Or was the murder of Jews by Iraqis in 1941 just plain Jewicide for the sake of Jewicide?
We must simply denounce the true intentions of the palestinians and convince all the dopey leftwing “peace supporters” to stop their blind encouragement for the palestinian “occupation” claim, because the reality is – it’s a shill.
The fact that Jews in the British Mandate have been attacked by Arabs since the early 1900’s – was not because of any territorial dispute – but just because Jews existed.
Maybe Islam is the root of the problem.
