The Diamond and Silk blog

Filed under: TV shows — furtherglory @ 3:58 pm

I have been hearing a lot about Diamond and Silk having a blog. So I tried to look up their blog. I found this: https://www.diamondandsilkinc.com/

I think that Diamond and Silk should refer to their online writing as a website, not a blog.

Only nine states mandate Holocaust curriculum in schools

The title of this blog post is a quote from this news article: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/study-shows-americans-are-forgetting-about-holocaust-n865396

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In 1945, Sonia Klein walked out of Auschwitz. Every day of the 73 years since she has been haunted by the memory of what happened there, and the fate of the millions who never made it out of the Nazi death camps.

But Klein wonders, once she and the few survivors still alive are gone, who will be left to remember?

“We are not here forever,” said Klein, now 92. “Most of us are up in years, and if we’re not going to tell what happened, who will?”

Klein’s worries are borne out by a comprehensive study of Holocaust awareness released Thursday, Holocaust Remembrance Day, which suggests that Americans are doing just the opposite.

Oh no! Are people forgetting the Holocaust? Are young people being denied information about the Holocaust?

What can I blog about — if there is no more interest in the Holocaust?

It was in the news this morning: Osama bin Ladin planned the 9-11 attack

In this news article, you can read all about the September 11th attack on the buildings owned by one man in America:

The following quote is from the news article:

A federal judge in New York has denied Saudi Arabia’s request to dismiss lawsuits claiming the desert kingdom materially assisted the 9/11 attackers. The defendants include two banks and the Binladin construction firm.

In case you don’t remember the 9/11 attack, here is what happened. The owner of the buildings that were hit that day was on his way out the door, headed to one of his tall buildings, where he always had his morning coffee, when his wife reminded him that he had a dentist appointment that morning — at a very early hour. If it had not been for that early morning appointment, the owner of the buildings would have been killed when the first plane hit.

Thank God for dentists who make appointments for 6:30 in the morning. Where would we be without these dentists?

As for Osama bin Laden, he was sitting in a cave, surrounded by young girls, when all of a sudden, he said “I’m bored. What can I do to amuse myself?” One of the girls must have said “Why don’t you send a plane over to America to attack some tall buildings?” Osama must have said “Good idea. What buildings do you recommend?”

At that point, one of the girls must have said, “I’ve heard that there is a guy who wants to replace his buildings with better, more spectacular buildings.”  Osama then says, “O.K. I will give him a call.”  At this point, the girl says “No, it should be a surprise.”

And that is how 9-11 happened.

 

The “actual number” of Jews killed in the Holocaust is around 6 million

Yes, it is true. The “actual number” of Jews killed in the Holocaust is around 6 million, according to this news article: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/12/us/holocaust-education.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

For seven decades, “never forget” has been a rallying cry of the Holocaust remembrance movement.

But a survey released Thursday, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, found that many adults lack basic knowledge of what happened — and this lack of knowledge is more pronounced among millennials, whom the survey defined as people ages 18 to 34.

Thirty-one percent of Americans, and 41 percent of millennials, believe that two million or fewer Jews were killed in the Holocaust; the actual number is around six million. Forty-one percent of Americans, and 66 percent of millennials, cannot say what Auschwitz was. Only 39 percent of Americans know that Hitler was democratically elected.

“As we get farther away from the actual events, 70-plus years now, it becomes less forefront of what people are talking about or thinking about or discussing or learning,” said Matthew Bronfman, a board member of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany
