Back To The Future

Archeologists in Poland have just discovered an amazing document, uncovered from beneath rubble left over in what was once the Warsaw Ghetto:

A Letter and Call to Sanity for the Warsaw Ghetto zealots, from the Peace Now chapter of Warsaw, April 23, 1943.

Dear Deluded Brethren,

A few days ago some zealots from certain messianic settler organizations operating in Warsaw launched a series of acts of unprovoked violence against the legitimate German peace partners directing peace-seeking activities here in Warsaw. A number of German soldiers and officers have been viciously murdered, while others have been maimed and injured by these thoughtless religious fundamentalists.

Comrades, we must emphasize that these violent hoodlums are deluded and are making things much worse for everyone else here in the Warsaw Ghetto. You have to understand that there are no military solutions to the problems of deportations of Jews in Warsaw by the Germans. Our problems can only be resolved through negotiations.

We lovers of peace insist that, in spite of the claims of these messianic terrorists provoking the Germans, there IS a partner for negotiations among the Germans, and we Warsaw Jews DO have a moral responsibility to conduct good faith negotiations with the legitimate representatives of the German people.

In addition, violent attacks by irresponsible Jewish settlers in the ghetto against Germans will only provoke a cycle of violence. There can be no winners in that.

Don’t these people conducting the hooligan violence understand that, if they attack the Nazi troops and refuse to conduct negotiations with the agents sent to us by the Third Reich, Hitler will lose control of his forces and then some really violent anti-Semite could take over?

Besides, Hitler is really trying his best to rein in the more violent of his stormtroopers; he simply cannot be everywhere at once. And besides, the Red Army and the Eastern front have him so preoccupied that he cannot act more effectively against the renegade SS terrorists mistreating Jews.

In addition, the Germans do have some legitimacy to their negotiating position. After all, Jews in Poland have been illegally occupying numerous Polish territories that really belong to Aryans! The Jews have established themselves in numerous Polish settlements where they just do not belong and their presence there has antagonized some of the local oppressed people.

Horrendous inequality has been created by Jewish racism, since the Jews in Poland are better educated than the Gentiles here and Jews in Warsaw earned more than non-Jews before the war. This manifestation of anti-Gentilism must be redressed. We need some affirmative action to help the Polish non-Jews advance in society.

Moreover, some Polish civilians apparently were victims of Jewish pickpockets in Warsaw before the war. We Jews certainly need to pay compensation for those inexcusable provocations.

Clearly the solution is two ghettos for two peoples. The Warsaw ghetto needs to be shared. The Jews in one half must agree to be deported peacefully from that half to other destinations, so that the Germans and the Poles can have equal rights in the New Middle Europe. The Polish right of return to the ghetto needs to be addressed. The entire tragedy that we have experienced stems from the selfish inability of so many Jews to share their property and land.

We repeat, violence has never solved anything. Violence only foments more violence. The violent Warsaw settlers attacking the innocent Germans are bigots and racists. They have wounded innocent bystanders in their firefights. Not only that, but the ghetto zealots attacking Germans have demonstrated insufficient sensitivity to the needs of non-traditional families and gay couples. They have been insensitive to the impact of their behavior upon the environment and the threat of global warming.

We need to speak out in defense of the human rights of Germans and Poles in the vicinity of the ghetto. We must denounce the racist Zionist hooligans and messianic zealots attacking those victims. Jewish terrorism against Germans must be stopped. The entire crisis could be resolved if we Jews would only recognize the legitimate rights to self-determination of the Germans, especially the ones in Danzig.

We must begin negotiations at once. Those claiming that there is no peace partner on the German side are deluded and they are the real obstacle to peace. We simply have to give Hitler a chance. He just wants a homeland for his own people and his fair share of our territory! In addition, we should stop giving encouragement to that neoconservative warmonger Winston Churchill. Doesn’t he realize that his plan to occupy other peoples cannot work?

Let’s take a lesson from our rich and wonderful heritage. The Bible itself calls upon us to pursue peace.

Stop the shooting. Start the talking. Now!

Last week the president announced a four-point plan. Unfortunately, there’s little buy-in from our European and Middle Eastern allies. Here’s my own four-point plan that may be more palatable to our allies.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]
