For Every Jewish Mass Grave A Sign, A Name


We ask everyone reading this to join with us as we commit ourselves to one crucial if limited campaign: We will, God willing, identify every possible mass grave of Jewish Holocaust victims in the Ukraine – and ultimately everywhere in Europe – that today remains unmarked and dishonored. And we will do this to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Babi Yar Massacres outside Kiev that will take place in September 2011.

This effort demands, indeed compels, the full support of the global Jewish community. For the world to truly understand the breadth of the Holocaust and the massive toll it represented for humanity, all affected communities deserve to be remembered in a way that respects those who were lost but most of all ensures that their deaths – and their lives – will never be forgotten.

Oleksandr Feldman is a member of the Ukraine parliament and chairman of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee. He was appointed this month to head the parliament’s committee on commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Babi Yar massacre.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.
