2. Holocaust survivors accuse Elie Wiesel of « Abuse of History. »
The International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, a group of 327 Jewish Holocaust survivors and descendants, has compared Israel to Nazi Germany in a full-page ad in Sunday’s New York Times.
The group, which has been critical of Israel in the past, placed the ad in response to a letter published by another Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, that accused Hamas of “child sacrifice” and comparing the terror group to the Nazis.
The network’s published statement accuses Wiesel of “abuse of history” in order to justify Israel’s actions in the Gaza Strip and refers to “Israel’s wholesale effort to destroy Gaza.”
Their letter also says, “Genocide begins with the silence of the world. … Never again must mean never again for anyone.”

The World is at a dangerous Crossroads.
The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness. And so is Russia.
Russia is heralded as the “Aggressor”. US-NATO military confrontation with Russia is contemplated.
Enabling legislation in the US Senate under “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) has “set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.”
Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy. (See Steven Starr, Global Research, August 22, 2014)
The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) is the culmination of more than twenty years of US-NATO war preparations, which consist in the military encirclement of both Russia and China:
From the moment the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has relentlessly pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran. It has brought 12 countries in central Europe, all of them formerly allied with Moscow, into the NATO alliance. US military power is now directly on Russias borders.
