Abbas calls for mourning as victims of the Holocaust remembered

The United Nations General Assembly will observe on Monday the third international day to commemorate victims of the Holocaust with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon calling on the world never to let it happen again. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has called three days of national mourning.

That will be the day!

Our friend and "peace partner" Mahmoud Abbas, he could not bring himself to say a word about the Holocaust remembrance. Instead, he declared three days of mourning for George Habash, the arch-terrorist whose entire life was devoted to wiping the Jews off the map.

Mr Abbas called Habash a "historic leader" and ordered Palestinian flags to fly at half-mast.

While UN Ban Ki-moon issued a statement marking the memory of the victims of the Holocaust, he is presiding over an organization that concentrates incredible efforts and resources on delegitimizing Israel and making the next Holocaust, not just possible, but likely.

And here is the partial list of PFLP atrocities - courtesy Wikipedia.

Also, Gordon Brown opines:

Why remember? Because, more than 60 years after the liberation of Belsen, Treblinka and Auschwitz, and as the last of the survivors now grow old, we simply cannot afford to forget. Each generation must learn and understand the dark forces and culpable failures that allowed prejudice, discrimination and persecution to lead to a vast programme of mass slaughter that spanned a continent.

And as we reflect again on these events, we must react to them too, to ensure that "Never Again" is not just a slogan, but a reality.

Dear Mr. Brown, Thank you for your kind words. Can't you go just one step further, draw on what you've just said and call out the Islamic and Arab Jew-haters who have focused all their efforts on the 'One more Time' campaign?

Why is that that as Europeans build their new empire upon the Jewish graves that the entire Europe really is, they are fine remembering the dead, but there are only precious few who would raise their voices for the living?

I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
