Europe Died in Auschwitz

Someone sent me an interesting piece apparently written for the Free Republic, written by a Spanish journalist named Sebastian Villar Rodriguez. I can't vouch for the veracity of this, but it seems to have been picked up by a few blogsalready.

Europe Died in Auschwitz
By Sebastian Villar Rodriguez September 23, 2005

I was walking along Raval (in Barcelona) when all of a sudden I understood that Europe died with Auschwitz. We assassinated 6 million Jews in order to end up bringing in 20 million Muslims!

We burnt in Auschwitz the culture, intelligence and power to create.

We burnt the people of the world, the one who is proclaimed the chosen people of God.

Because it is the people who gave to humanity the epic figures who were capable of changing history (Christ, Marx, Einstein, Freud...) and who represent the origin of progress and wellbeing.

We must admit that Europe, by relaxing its borders and giving in under the pretext of tolerance to the values of a fallacious cultural relativism, opened its doors to 20 million Muslims, often illiterates and fanatics that we could meet, at best, in places such as Raval, the poorest of the nations and of the ghettos, and who are preparing the worst, such as the 9/11 and the Madrid bombing and who are lodged in apartment blocs provided by the social welfare.

We also have exchanged culture with fanaticism, the capacity to create with the will to destroy, the wisdom with the superstition. We have exchanged the transcendental instinct of the Jews, who even under the worst possible conditions have always looked for a better, peaceful world, for the suicide bomber.

We have exchanged the pride of life for the fanatic obsession of death. Our death and that of our children.

What a grave mistake we made!

There are lots of ways to use weblogs and weblog software. In fact, in my department, we are considering using weblogs as a form of internal communication within the department and the company.

I think that article is really obnoxious. Is he saying the holocaust have been ok if the jews were just an ordinary run of the mill people?

That's not how I read into it at all. I read it as mocking Europe for 'cleansing' their countries from the Jew when, 60 years later, all they accomplished was wiping out those that contributed economically and culturally and replaced them with those who at even their best behavior do not.

...and it's about time I got some comments back here!

Hey, anonymous posted right before I did. And my point remains.

Looking back, it was stupid to get rid of people who were economic and cultural contributors to Europe. But if we had not been good members of society, it might not have been such a bad idea.

My grandmother (who was born in Manhattan so i guess she was quoting someone else) once told me this exact thing.

She said pre-war, the cities of Poland and Germany were the vanguard of culture, philosophy, art, and science. But after the war, the countries seemed like something died -- sterile, lifeless, and dull.

SW - That might have had something to do with communism taking over Eastern Europe.

I agree that article is obnoxious. he is saying a holocaust of ordinary people is fine.

Maybe he's hinting, "Guys, pay attention. We massacred the wrong people. Let's get it right this time."

i see how it could be read the way you guys are reading it, but somehow i think that you guys are missing the point.

"but somehow i think that you guys are missing the point."

Well? Would you care to elaborate on the "somehow," or are you just satisfied with an opportunity to tell someone that they're wrong?

I'm about to get tetchy here:

The whole description of Muslims, what with the poverty, and the ignorance and the superstition could have been lifted from a typical late-nineteenth-century description of Jews. Only in death are we the people who gave the world great stuff. (Christ, Marx, Einstein & Freud--interesting how he only counts figures from that minority of Jews who operated in a gentile world and context, or in Christ's sake, just got rewritten for one.)

Europe did not bring in Muslim immigrants because they'd already slaughtered the Jews. There is actually no connection at all here. No exchange was made. If Europe still had all her Jews, would she be keeping Muslims out? "Nope, already got plenty of Semites to wait tables." Gotcha.

Europe did not die at Auschwitz. The people who died at Auschwitz died at Auschwitz. They died, one could argue, because the Europeans of their generation did not truck with 'fallacious cultural relativism' or 'pretexts of tolerance'.

This whole thing strikes me as racist whining. Jews are not mourned as human beings here, they're a resource Europe wasted. Muslims are not seen as human, they're a blight. Only Europe counts. Only Europe's experiences matter. I'm crying.

I agree with every word of Balabusta.
As a jewish person, I resent any attitude that relates to any ethnic group as a collective rather than individuals.
Not all muslim are the good or bad, just like jews aren't!

Every human being is a different person with a different personality, without relation to his/her culture, religion, skin color or ethnicity!

And Hey - why Balabusta's last comment removed?

Mr. Avner,
While I don't disagree with Balabusta (and it was her who deleted her last comment), I'm not sure why you say that as a jew you resent any collective remarks. That should be your last argument! As a jew, your responsibility is to wipe out amalek- men, women, children and cattle. Is that now collective punishment? How about when the jews were conquering Israel? Did they not collectively wipe out whole populations? You can say you personally disagree with the concept, but it's not because you're jewish.

Dear JPT,
As a JEWISH, I know something about racism and its effects.

Let's not mix the times.

I'm not religious so I won't defend the ancient command to kill Amalek, as I wouldn't defend the Christian crussades, nor the ancient muslim Jihad message.

I do resent the modern leaders who employ those ancient religious commands and feelings for political gain.

To which conquring do you refer? To the one led by the prophet Joshua 2000 years ago? again - that's ancient hisory. There is no operative Israeli leader today who calls to act upon this command.

As for the article itself, this kind of demagogy is very dangerous. The almost inevitable conclusion of this article is: "Ok, we should have killed the muslims instead of the jews, because they are not as intelligent as the jews"

Avner, again, I lean to agree with Balabusta. My point was that while a Jew may be more sensitive, there's nothing in the Jewish religion prohibiting collective punishment. How about resenting the point as a human being?

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
