Yesterday was “Yom HaShoah,” Holocaust Remembrance Day. And in recognition of that–and to pander to its far-left Jewish donors–tonight at 10:00p.m. Eastern, PBS (a/k/a Palestinian Broadcasting Service) is presenting “Among the Righteous: Lost Stories from the Holocaust’s Long Reach into Arab Lands,” about the few Arab Muslims who saved Jews from Nazi camps in North Africa. It follows Robert Satloff, the liberal Jewish author who wrote a book by the same name
It’s nice that a few Muslims saved Jews. They were heroic and risked their lives to do the right thing. But they were the exception. Not the rule. And it’s kind of disgusting–an in-your-face PBS haha moment–to remember the Holocaust by insisting that the exception, the exception that is part of the Jewish people’s most fierce, unprovoked enemy today, is something to be respected over the general rule. The fact is this: the majority–the vast majority–of the Islamic world hates and wishes for the destruction of the Jewish people and Israel. If they could, they’d kill us all. That there were a few exceptions in North Africa doesn’t negate or change that. In fact, it’s just red herring propaganda.
Also a fact: that the majority of Muslims–not just in North Africa, but in Europe itself, including two Muslim SS units–helped the Nazis in their mass murder of six million Jews and torture of countless others. And it’s not just the two Muslim SS units, or the majority of Muslim Arabs who helped enslave Jews in North Africa. It’s also the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the Muslim leader who met with Hitler, inspected the SS Muslim units, begged Hitler to speed up the Final Solution of the Jews, and urged him to expand it to the Middle East. That is the rule, not the irrelevant exception PBS will be showing you tonight.

The first half of Satloff’s book tells of the brutality against the Jews and conspiracy with the Nazis in which most of the Arab Muslims willingly participated, many of them with their typical savage enthusiasm. I doubt we’ll see much–if any–of that part on PBS tonight. There’s a reason the American Islamic Congress is one of the financial sponsors of tonight’s fake-umentary. It’s propaganda.
Another fiction put forth by Satloff, in his book and probably tonight, too, is the claim that before the establishment of the State of Israel, Jews and Arab Muslims lived in peace. Really? Tell that to the Jews who suffered pogroms throughout the Muslim world throughout their history, not to mention forced conversions, rapes of their daughters, and forced marriages of them to Islam. Nauseating that anyone who claim these things didn’t happen.
Satloff, who heads the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, feels that recognition of the few heroic Muslim Arabs who saved Jews will help end anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in the Arab Muslim world. What’s he smoking? In fact, many of the Arab Muslims don’t want the recognition, the heroic saviors’ families are embarrassed their ancestors saved the Evil Zioinists. That’s the Muslim world that we know. That is the reality.
Any other portrayal–such as the one, tonight, on PBS–is merely distraction. And a fraud.
Oskar Schindler was not an Arab, not a Muslim. And the only list on which the Jews exist in that world is a hit list.
