The International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN) is currently running a 12-city Never Again For Anyone tour, which has been blasted by ADL as anti-Israel campaign to delegitimize the Zionist state for its exploitation of Holocaust. “It’s a blatant attempt to exploit the memory of the Holocaust as a tool to demonize Israel,” alleged Israel lobbing group Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
The tour is meant to make the people aware the fact that Jews don’t have the monopoly over Holocaust and ironically, the Palestinian, Muslims and other non-Jewish communities are going through their Holocaust currently. The tour will run from January 25 (Washington DC) to February 19, 2011 (Los Angeles). The events will be held in between in New York, New Jersey, Toronto, Milwaukee, Chicago, Atlanta, Twin Cities, New Orleans, Sacramento and SF Bay Area. The speakers are Holocaust survivor Dr. Hajo Meyer, UC Berkeley professor, Dr. Hatem Bazian, Osama Abu-Irshaid, Hedy Epstein, and more.
Joining IJAN in this campaign are American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), United Jewish People’s Order (UJPO and Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA). Unfortunately, none these groups made to ADL’s 10 Top anti-Israel Groups list for year 2010.
In the face of the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestine, attacks and persecution of Muslim and Arab communities, and ongoing attacks against the rights of other communities and immigrants, we assert a commitment to uphold the rights inherent to all people against the application of “never again” to only a few.
Dr. Hajo Meyer 87, born in Germany one of the last Auschwitz remaining survivors, lives in Netherlands. He is author of three books on Judaism, the Holocaust and Zionism. Last year he took a 10-day lecture tour of Britain and Ireland. In an interview published in Herald Scotland (January 24, 2010), he said that “Israel acts like Nazis“. His comments sparked a furious reaction from hardline Jewish lobby groups, with Dr Meyer branded an “anti-Semite” and accused of abusing his position as a Holocaust survivor.
