Extra info for A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel's Victims of Terrorism
Since the beginning of the Second Intifada (al-Aqsa Intifida) in September 2000, more Israelis have been murdered by terrorists than in all previous years of Israel’s statehood. Jerusalem is the suicide-terrorism capital of the world. The stories told here are breathtaking also in their horror and shock. Israelis are deliberately attacked at the times when the largest numbers of people can be killed and in the most indiscriminate manner possible, in the name of eradicating Jews from the Middle East.
Today, hens scamper around where the Sobibor camp once stood. The history of European Judaism did not end with a grave where Jews can now go to pray; the only pilgrimage possible is to contemplate a stormy sky, in pain, anger, and sadness. Likewise, the families of terror victims often have no chance to weep over the bodies of their loved ones. They rush to the place of the attack, only to find a carpet of human fragments. In Chelmno, 150,000 Jews disappeared in a few months. Where are their remains?
Afterward, a survey by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research showed that 84 percent of the Palestinians justified the attack. Itamar Marcus, who has spent many years monitoring and exposing Palestinian anti-Semitic propaganda as director of Palestinian Media Watch, maintains that the heads of propaganda for Hamas and for the Palestinian Authority’s TV station—with their televised sermons, cartoons, comic books, and schoolbooks—have created a machine to incite killing similar to that of the Hutu journalists who fomented genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda.
