Republicans blocked a resolution which declared that Jews were the primary victims of the Holocaust

I am blogging today about a news article which you can read in full at http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/02/07/republicans_block_vote_on_resolution_stating_that_holocaust_targeted_jews.html

This is the headline of the article:

House Republicans Avoid Voting on a Resolution Stating That the Holocaust Targeted Jews

The following quote is from the news article:;

Begin quote

The resolution, a shrewd effort to pin Republicans down on something the Trump administration has needlessly made an issue, condemned the White House’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, which failed to mention Jews or the anti-Semitism that led to Adolf Hitler’s genocide against them. It also called for the House to reiterate “the indisputable fact that the Nazi regime targeted the Jewish people in its perpetration of the Holocaust,” condemn Holocaust denialism, and demand acknowledgment from the White House that Jews were targeted.

In the wake of controversy over the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, the White House defended it, saying that it had wished to be inclusive by acknowledging that other groups had been killed by Hitler’s regime as well.

End quote

The problem is that President Donald Trump has not bowed low enough to the Jews, in spite of the fact that his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are both Jewish.

The victims of the Holocaust included many categories of people besides Jews. However, the non-Jews that were killed are not important. Only the Jews count, and Trump seems to ignore this. What is WRONG with him?

  2. How can Trump’s daughter be Jewish? Unless of course, her mother is Jewish. Jews take their Jewishness from the matrilineal side.

      Trump’s daughter married a Jew and converted to Judaism.

  4. Brilliant, well done. After all these years I now realise, by reading your blog above, that the jews weren’t the focal point of the holocaust at all. The holocaust isn’t a jew thing at all and Trump Boy knows it, which is why, or one reason at least, why he won’t make it about them. They were just one small group who were targeted. The records show that more catholics died at auschwitz than any other group.

    Tough luck jews you’ve been found out at last, the holocaust isn’t a jew thing and it’s not about you.

      Back in 1998, there was a big controversy about the number of Catholics who died at Auschwitz. I wrote about this on this page of my website, before I had a blog.

      In 1998, I went to Auschwitz to get this story because I was planning to write an article for my local newspaper. I called the newspaper and told them of my proposed article; the editor promised to buy the story, so I took off to Poland to get the details of the story. After I wrote the story and submitted it, the newspaper did not buy it. Instead, they published a story, written by one of their own reporters, who did not go to Poland to get the true facts of the story.
