It never mentions that Muslims are already perfectly educated about the Holocaust as they participated in it. Instead there's the conventional approach of pretending that they're new to the subject.
Two years ago, Jamo, 38, fled to Germany from Kobane, a Syrian city occupied by Islamic State militants in late 2014.This is the sort of thing the Post considers "ambivalent."
His ambivalent response to the suffering of Jews at Sachsenhausen speaks to centuries-old religious strife as well as to the political conflict that has torn the Middle East since Israel’s founding after World War II.
The history that binds Germany to Israel is interpreted differently by many in the Arab world, Jamo said: “The Arabs think what Hitler did was a good thing, because he freed them from the Jews.”One might call them... Nazis. Or Islamofascists.
Jamo was exploring Sachsenhausen with R.future-TV, a nonprofit in Berlin that brings together refugees to discuss German history and social issues, featuring them in short films on topics from theology to gender equality. The project, run by two actors, Nina Coenen and Sami Alkomi, has received 9,000 euros of public funding for five films.Yes, this is an absurd farce.
Jamo was one of only two refugees involved in R.future-TV who agreed to participate in the film project on Holocaust history.
At a meeting of the group last month, one man admitted, “In some ways, we think of the Jews just like the Nazis did.”
Wir schaffen das.
And now, here's the good Muslim. The "other one".
In Iraq, anti-Semitic influences are pervasive, said Mohammed Kareem, the other refugee who had agreed to participate in the film. But Kareem, 34, who had been a police officer in Baghdad, spoke with his back to the camera, worried for his family still in Iraq if he were to be identified as “a friend of the Jews.”Any Jews who champion Muslim refugees are downright suicidal. I'm not talking about left-wing groups like HIAS, which are just in refugee business, or trolls like the Anne Frank Center, that has nothing to do with Anne Frank, or anti-Israel groups like J Street. What exactly is the rationale for bringing in Nazi sympathizers as refugees?
“Everywhere — whether on the TV, from Imams or at school — we hear, ‘Jews are not good,’ and we don’t know any Jews to see them differently,” Kareem said. Since arriving in Germany in 2015, he has encountered several Jews who volunteer at a Berlin church that works with refugees. And now he is asking himself, “‘Why does my country say Jews are not good?’ Their armies — that’s different.”
“If Germany paid reparations to Israel, then Americans should pay for what they did in Iraq,” Kareem said. By the end of the day, Jamo was firm on one point: “We are definitely still against the Zionists.”
In survey results released this year, an independent panel set up by the German Parliament found that Jews were “increasingly concerned for their safety,” with respondents ranking Muslims as the group most likely to commit physical and verbal attacksImporting Muslim migrants, imports anti-Semitism, and creates Jewish refugees. Just look at France.
