We at AIFD would like to take this opportunity to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day.
As we all reflect upon and remember the over six million lives lost – young men and women, elders, husbands, wives, children, grandchildren, loved ones and friends – may we not speak the words “never again” and allow them to prove hollow.
May we vow to make “never again” a solemn and enduring promise, both to honor the spirits of those lost during that most horrid time in history and to inspire our continued commitment to combating oppression and tyranny.
Tragically, even over seventy years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the world is not post-anti-Semitism. Please join us in our commitment to combat anti-Semitism both within and outside of our community. Never again.
If you have a moment, a video blog from Dr. Jasser that we posted a few years ago on this occasion sadly rings true now more than ever.
As the West is also today possibly on the brink of a long overdue response to the war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Ba’athist regime in Syria of Bashar al-Assad, may we also remember that never again is a constant test upon the Free World.
For those who have visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington or Yad Vashem in Israel, among the infinite lessons every human being can take away from there is how many years it took the world to act despite having all of the facts, and knowing the reality of the unspeakable horror besetting the Jewish people.
As the Assad regime and ISIS inflict inhuman massacres upon the unarmed of Syria, may we resolve to send a message to tyrants now and those aspiring to commit genocide in the future: Never Again.
