Anti-Semitism Is a Cancer that Destroys Your Nations

(Times of Israel) Prof. Yehuda Bauer - Prof. Yehuda Bauer spoke to world leaders at the Israeli President's Residence in Jerusalem for the World Holocaust Forum on Jan. 22, 2020: Why did World War II break out? Because Nazi Germany wanted it. Hitler had a deeply held belief that demanded action, to prevent the physical annihilation of the German people at the hands of the chimera he and millions of others believed and still believe in, of a secret cabal of an invented international Jewry that controls both East and West. ISIS and al-Qaeda disseminate this today. World War II was the result, at least in large measure, of this ideology. The war caused 35 million dead in Europe alone, of whom 5.6 to 5.7 million were Jews who died in the Holocaust. But 29 million were non-Jews from Europe and North America who died, in large part, because of the hatred of Jews, and the majority of these victims were Soviet citizens. Anti-Semitism is not a Jewish illness, but a non-Jewish one; it is a cancer that kills and destroys your nations and your countries. So, there are, my friends, 29 million reasons for you to fight anti-Semitism. Not because of the Jews, but to protect your societies from a deadly cancer. The writer is professor emeritus of history and Holocaust studies at Hebrew University.
