Americans, generation after generations have been brought up on myths and lies about how their European ancestors discovered Americana in early sixteenth century. These include crediting Christopher Columbus for the discovery of the New World for the King of Portugal and the mantra, “a land without people for a people without land“, created by early colonists to cover their land theft and Holocaust of between 100-150 million American native people who had lived there for many, many centuries before the arrival of Columbus. In 1930, armed European Jewish settlers also applied the same mantra to whitewash their occupation of Palestine.
The European colonists in United States and Canada also celebrate the myth of Thanksgiving. It’s based on the 1614 story when a band of English explorers sailed home to England with a ship full of American Indians bound for slavery. The left behind smallpox which virtually wiped out those who were lucky to make escape. By the time these Judeo-Christian “pilgrims” arrived in Massachusetts Bay they found only one Indian slave who survived slavery in England and spoke English language. He taught them to grow corn and fish – and negotiated a peace treaty between the “pilgrims” and the Wampanoag Nation. Next year, the “pilgrims” threw a big feast to celebrate “peace treaty”. That feast became the first and last Thanksgiving celebrated together by the Natives and the White settlers. After that, the Natives suffered a century-long Holocaust at the hands of the European colonists. The only other Native who faced a similar Holocaust at the hands of European Judeo-Christians was in Australia.
William Loren Katz, an American Jewish author, editor, historian, and blogger posted an article recently on the truth about Thanksgiving.
“Thanksgiving has a treasured place in the hearts of Americans, established as a national holiday by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 to rouse Northern patriotism for a war that was not going well. Since then, Thanksgiving has often served other political ends,” Katz said.
“In 2003, in the age of US Middle East invasions, President George W. Bush flew to Baghdad, Iraq, to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with US troops. He sought to rally the public behind an invasion based on lies by having a host of photographers snap pictures of him carrying a glazed turkey to eager soldiers. Three hours later, Bush flew home, and TV brought his act of solidarity and generosity to millions of US living rooms. But the turkey the President carried to Baghdad was never eaten. It was cardboard, a stage prop,” Katz adds.
“Thanksgiving Day in the United States celebrates not justice and equality but aggression and enslavement. It affirms the genocidal beliefs in racial and religious superiority that justified the destruction of millions of Native American people and their cultures, extermination campaigns that began soon after the Pilgrim landing in 1620 and continued through the US Army’s punitive campaigns in the West during the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries,” Katz said.
Rabbi Bertram Korn claims that many Southern Jews believed slavery to be indispensable to their happiness and security. “The road to social and economic advancement and acceptance for the Jews was made easier by the institution of slavery,” wrote the rabbi. Even to this day Blacks, both Jews and non-Jews are hated in Israel.
American celebrates Thanksgiving on November 4 each year. Canadian celebrated it on October 13. Today (November 28) is American Indian Heritage Day.
