Letter to the editor,
On February 20, 1939, at Madison Square Garden 20,000 people (the Nazi Bund) gathered — just like Hamas supporters on every college campus gather today — to celebrate Hitler’s dream of the genocide of the Jewish people. Of course, their celebratory state was not formalized until January 1942 when the Nazi SS put the Final Solution of the Jews in writing in the Wannsee Protocols.
However, the antisemitic genocidal ambition of the Nazi SS and their supporters was far more limited than those Hamas supporters in American academia across America today since the Wannsee Protocols ONLY demanded the murder of every Jew in Europe.
Article 7 of the Hamas Charter — which has never been revoked — requires of every supporter of Hamas to murder every Jew on earth. Neither Israel, Zionists nor “the occupation” is mentioned in Article 7.
There is no doubt every student and professor who has made clear their support for Hamas and therefore Article 7 of the Hamas Charter — since Hamas only exists within the four squares of its charter – would have been celebrating on February 20, 1939, at Madison Square Garden with the rest of the Nazi Bund cheering for Hitler’s dream of the genocide of the Jews.
Plus, can change, plus c’est la meme chose.
