A fellow named Steven Gerber has recently written an article called "Yom Ha'Shoah and What It Means For Human Rights." It has now been published on the Huffington Post. You can check out the article itself, but the title really explains it all. Because the Jews have been the victims of discrimination and suffering the past, they should use what they learned to help others around the world. Traditionally, Jews have done this, working in the civil rights movement and the anti-genocide movement in the Sudan. Gerber concludes with linked to the organization Rabbis for Human Rights. In all respects, it's a good article.
The Huffington Post crowd, however, didn't stop to even read the article. They were instead simply content to push their anti-Israel attitudes, anti-Jewish labels, and of course a healthy dose of Holocaust cynicism. There were people accusing the Jews of "forgetting" the lessons they learned and of committing a genocide of their own against the Palestinians. The walls between the terms "Jews" and "Israelis," which the HPers are usually so careful to build up, now come crashing down.
