OAKLAND COUNTY'S PREMIER

DIVORCE

From the Inquisition to the
pogroms, to the 6 million Jews mur-
dered by the Nazis, history proves
that Jew hatred existed on a global
scale before the creation of the State
of Israel. It would still exist in 2010
even if Israel had never been cre-
ated. For example, one poll indicates
that 40 percent of Europeans blame
the recent global economic crisis on
"Jews having too much economic
power" — a canard that has nothing
to do with Israel.
Lie No. 9: Israel, not Hamas, is
responsible for the "humanitarian
catastrophe" in Gaza. Goldstone was
right when he charged that Israel
was guilty of war crimes against
civilians.
The United Nations Human Rights
Council is obsessed with false
anti-Israel resolutions. It refuses
to address grievous human rights
abuses in Iran, North Korea, Sudan,
Saudi Arabia, Cuba and beyond.
Faced with similar attacks, every
U.N. member-state, including the
United States and Canada, surely
would have acted more aggressively
than the Israel Defense Forces did
in Gaza.
Lie No. 10: The only hope for
peace is a single, binational state

hole, obtained more water and was
returning to the wounded man when
he was killed by a machinegun bullet.
Who knew that Congress gave
medals for gemulut chasidim, acts of
loving-kindness?
Considering his action, Sawelson's
six-pointed star should defi-
nitely stand overlooking a place of
water. He was from Newark, N.J.,
so why not a parcel overlooking the
nearby Passaic River, which many
environmental groups as well as the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are
working to restore?
Casualties of World War II have
numerous memorials across the
country. I will add another with my
third nomination; a new memo-
rial with a Star of David is in order
for Gertrude Shapiro, a young
Jewish army nurse who was sent to
Hiroshima, Japan, to help care for
survivors in September 1945, only a
few weeks after the bomb had been
dropped.
On her return to the States, Shapiro
suffered from a variety of ailments,
and according to Hasia R. Diner and

eliminating the Jewish State of
Israel.
The one-state solution is a non-
starter because it would eliminate
the Jewish homeland. However,
the current pressures on Israel are
equally dangerous. In effect, the
world is demanding that Israel, the
size of New Jersey, shrink further
by accepting a three-state solution:
a P.A. state on the West Bank and
a Hamas terrorist one in Gaza. All
this as Hezbollah, Iran's proxy in
Lebanon, stockpiles 50,000 rockets,
threatening northern and central
Israel's main population centers.
Current polls show that while most
Israelis favor a two-state solu-
tion, most Palestinians continue to
oppose it.

Yad Ezra's 20th
annual fundraising event

Beryl Lieff Benderly in their book Her
Works Praise Her, she died in 1972
"of a cancer probably caused by her
exposure to nuclear radiation:'
To honor Shapiro as well as other
service personnel who died as a
result of aiding atomic victims, a
two-triangled star should stand in
the Little Tokyo section of downtown
Los Angeles.
There, in a several-block area of
Japanese shops, apartment buildings,
cultural center and Buddhist temple,
on a bench sits a life-sized bronze
statue of Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese
diplomat who during his World War
II service as vice counsel in Lithuania
saved the lives of thousands of Jews
by issuing them transit visas. The
accompanying plaque quotes from
the Talmud: "He who saves one life,
saves the entire world."
Placing the star nearby would com-
plete a circle.
It's not just playing with symbols. ❑
