[Watch] College Palestinian Activists Demand Holocaust Survivor Denounce Israel's 'Ethnic Cleansing' as Equal to Holocaust Horrors

FILE - The file picture taken just after the liberation by the Soviet army in January, 1945 shows a group of children wearing concentration camp uniforms including Martha Weiss who was ten years-old, 6th from right, at the time behind barbed wire fencing in the Oswiecim (Auschwitz) Nazi concentration camp. The German government has agreed to provide additional financial assistance for child survivors of the Holocaust, who are suffering increasing problems associated with malnutrition and psychological trauma when they were young. The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany said the agreement reached with the Finance Ministry late Wednesday, Sept 3, 2014 would provide one-time payments of 2,500 euros (US$ 3,280) for Jewish children who were in concentration camps, ghettos or spent at least six months in hiding.

Redstate sister site Twitchy caught a jaw-dropping exchange earlier in the week during a college speech from a Holocaust survivor.

Harold Kasimow- Grinnell College professor emeritus of religious studies – recently spoke about his experiences at Benedictine University where he is a visiting scholar. Certainly it is a rare privilege to hear from such a person given that we are mere years away from losing the last of these precious and historic voices.


Sadly, not everyone seemed to value the privilege. A student group called Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) apparently believed the professor’s candid discussion on the horrors of the Holocaust as he experienced them was offensive because Kasimow also did not discuss the injustice of the “genocide, ethnic cleansing, and exile of Palestinians living in under [Israeli] occupation”.


Here’s the video on Twitter. The full thread is posted below.

As I laid out on social media yesterday, this is just one of the uninspiring messages coming from the Left right now. This is what they’re offering us – moral relativism and harassing Holocaust survivors for suggesting Israel has a right to exist.
