I am disappointed that there has not been more of an outcry from the Jewish community about the terrorist killings of thousands of civilians by Boko Haram in Nigeria. This is exactly the kind of indifference that the Jews accuse America of during the World War II Holocaust. Many Jews disparage Roosevelt (and Churchill) for not acting sooner to end the Holocaust by invading continental Europe sooner to reach the death camps. The Jews believe that millions more Christians should have died in order to save millions more Jews in the camps. Roosevelt and Churchill insisted on waiting until the invasion had a better chance of success. Of course the reason it had a better chance of success was that something like 11 million Soviets died fighting Hitler in Russia along the Eastern Front softening up the Germans for the D-Day invasion.
If they are not racists, Jews in general and Israelis in particular need to speak out about the atrocities in Nigeria, Ideally, Israelis should come to the aid of the Nigerians, if not, at least they should lead a worldwide campaign to protect the Nigerians from Boko Haram. It’s a Holocaust issue.
While it did not point out the Jewish hypocrisy on the matter, a recent op-ed in the Denver Post pointed out the worldwide hypocrisy in reacting so strongly to the Charlie Hebdo killings in France and so weakly to the killings in Nigeria.
