May God Grant Israel a Rapid and Complete Victory, Security, and Peace

The Nazis carried out the Holocaust, largely, in Nazi-occupied Poland. Auschwitz, Birkenau, Treblinka, Majdanek, Belzec, Chlemno, Sobibor, The Warsaw and Lodz Ghettos were all in Nazi-occupied Poland.

 "The German Nazis deported to Auschwitz at least 1.3 million people of more than 20 nationalities. Of that amount, 400 thousand were registered and incarcerated in the concentration camp as prisoners while 900 thousand were murdered in the gas chambers on arrival. Jews constituted 85% of all deportees and 90% of those who were murdered." source


Poland did not do this; Nazi Germany did this. But this happened on Polish soil.


We Poles and Polonians can respond to this heavy burden of history by doing whatever we can to resist genocidal murderers, especially genocidal murderers of Jews.


As an American, I support my country's significant support of Israel. I vote for candidates who support Israel. I reject isolationists.


As an individual, I have little power. I can use my pip-squeak voice to speak big truths.


There is a right side and a wrong side when it comes to conflict between Israel and Arab Muslims. Israel is the right side. Arab Muslims who attack Israel, and who commit the atrocities we see now, are on the wrong side.


Please note that your news sources may not be covering the atrocities Arab Muslims are committing. Please do some research and discover what's really going on. This is a war carried out through the torture, murder, and desecration of the elderly, women, and children.


Israel has a right to exist. See my piece "Coming Out as Pro-Israel on Faceook" here.


Israel's Arab Muslim opponents are not reasonable people seeking solutions to limited points of contention. They are genocidal and they are profoundly anti-Semitic. The Hamas Covenant calls for the "obliteration" of Israel and for Islam to dominate the world. See here.


It is not anti-Arab or anti-Muslim to state these basic facts. It is anti-Arab and anti-Muslim to avoid these basic facts. Israel is not a serious threat to Muslims or to Arabs. See for example this chart Muslims nations pose a far greater threat to their neighbors and to their own populations than Israel poses to them. Iran and Iraq, Civil War in Yemen and Syria, genocide in Darfur, have all taken far more Arab Muslim lives than Israel has in defending herself.


There are more Muslims and / or Arabs on the street today celebrating the attack on Israel than took to the streets to protest the allegedly genocidal actions of China against Uighurs.


Why? Because attacks on Israel are not about Arab rights or Muslim rights. They are about genocidal anti-Semitism.


For all these reasons this Polish American and all decent people worldwide hope and pray for a rapid and complete victory for Israel, and security and peace for Israel.


Am Yisrael Chai!


  1. There are no pro-Hamas manifestations in Poland. There are such manifestations in many Western-European cities.

  2. So, there are no pro-Hamas manifestations in Poland. Could that be because there are too few immigrants, from that background in Poland, to conduct them? Maybe we should make sure that it stays that way.

  3. There is one video of a small manifestation of probably Arab students in Kraków.
