Never Again!

Those words “Never Again!” have been repeated again and again.  We will not permit another Holocaust.  Despite the words from world leaders it just keeps happening again and again.

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, in Hebrew it is called Yom Hashoah. Six million Jews were killed by Hitler and his followers. So to answer the question: WILL OUR WORLD EVER LEARN FROM PAST MISTAKES? Apparently the answer is NO!

Evidence of that is happening today in Syria. Evidence since WW2 is easy to find and goes back to the WW1 and other times.

The Armenian Holocaust remembrance day is also April 24. At least 664,000 and possibly as many as 1.2 million died during the genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire.

From April to mid-July 1994, members of the Hutu majority in Rwanda murdered some 500,000 to 800,000 people, mostly of the Tutsi minority, with horrifying brutality and speed.

In 1992, the government of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared its independence from Yugoslavia, and Bosnian Serb leaders targeted both Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) and Croatian civilians for atrocious crimes resulting in the deaths of some 100,000 people by 1995.

The Cambodian Killing Fields are a number of sites in Cambodia where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979.

Donald Trump’s use of missiles to attack an air force base was the right thing to do from a humanitarian point of view. It just was not enough.
