Zionism Caused the Holocaust – And I can Prove It!

Settle down. Settle down.

It’s been a long held belief in certain wackier Haredi circles, among Satmar and of course our pals in the Neturei Karta that the Holocaust was a Divine Punishment for Zionism. Books, so holy that they create an instant interdimensional vortex into the pit of hell, have been written on this topic. But let me just offer the ultimate proof that will summarize everything and establish once and for all that the Holocaust was a punishment for Zionism.

Ready? Good.

The Holocaust wiped out millions of Jews across Europe that didn’t move to Israel but didn’t harm any Jews living in Israel. Clearly the Holocaust was a punishment against Zionism.

In fact God hated Zionism so very much, that he wiped out the Jewish communities of Europe while leaving the Jewish communities of Israel intact. Then in war after war he saved Israel from complete destruction through unsubtle miracles.

Clearly the one thing we’ve established with complete certainty is that God hates Zionism.

Now the usual Anti-Zionist argument is that Germany was the homeland of secularization and Zionism which is why the Holocaust emerged from there. There’s only one problem with that argument, history.

Nazism might have come from Germany but it had its worst impacts in Holland and Poland. The highest death rates for Jews weren’t in Germany, where many of the secular and Zionist Jews saw what was coming and got out. No they were highest in Eastern Europe and in Holland. What’s the religious pattern there? You got it, there isn’t one. Except that the advance of Germany toward the East combined with Russia’s advance toward the West trapped the most religious Jewish communities between the hammer and the anvil.

While Hitler managed to overrun Europe and Eastern Europe and even parts of Russia, Hitler’s forces never managed to reach Israel, where the Zionists were. While the Anti-Zionists might want to claim that this was to protect the sanctity of Eretz Yisroel, this protection hadn’t prevented the Romans, the Arabs and the Crusaders from overrunning the place multiple times.

Then by the time Hitler and Stalin were done, Europe was all but uninhabitable for Jews. The only real choices were America or Israel. Thanks to assimilation and intermarriage, American Jews are busy wiping themselves out and today Israel holds the largest Jewish community in the world. Sure it’s one that Iran could wipe out with a Nuke, but after 9/11, you could say the same thing about New York City.

So what are we back to? Right, I hate to second ole Hagee here, but if the Holocaust had any divine message, it was “Move your @sses to the Holy Land.” Of course not being an asshat like ole Hagee or certain Gedolim whose books can transport you interdimensionally to hell, I’m not going to be presumptuous enough to claim that’s what the Holocaust was about.

But if you actually have a working brain, you can see that the events of the Holocaust very blatantly spared Israel while wiping out all the Heilige Velts Vun Toiyre across Eastern Europe and Russia.

Satmar is named after Satu Mare, a town in Romania that is all but empty of Jews while Satmar themselves live in America and Israel. Israel is named after the Zionist Medine founded by the Zionists and run by the Zionists. And the Zionists, dey is living in Israel, yo, nein? It’s not too hard to figure out which group is more relevant these days and which one is trying to dress like 18th century Eastern European peasants while living in Brooklyn and claiming that this somehow affirms their views.

Nobody on this plane of existence can answer the question of why the Holocaust happened, religiously speaking. But the arrogance and presumptuousness of people whose entire communities were destroyed by the Holocaust, precisely because they didn’t move to Israel, claiming that this proves them right, while proving the people who did move to Israel wrong is Twilight Zone level crazy.

Now I’m sure that sooner or later one of them will stop by here and post something about the atonement of the righteous or the Torah communities being punished because they failed to prevent Zionism or protest against it loudly enough, and I’ll laugh in their faces and tell them that they’re using convoluted reasoning to try and defend a ridiculous belief that is contrary to what actually happened.

I’ll also ask them how in 1948 a country with no real army managed to beat the armies of the biggest Arab nations while in 1943 the Jews of Europe were hunted animals running from every leaf. For people who love to reel off the recitation of curses we just finished reading in Parshas Behukotai, they might want to study some of the blessings.

A handful chasing enemy armies? Done.

Vast harvests and yields of fruit and grain? Done.

A great increase in population and childbirth? Done.

I’m not an RTG man myself, but the evidence on hand shows a much more credible argument for Reishis Tzmichat Geulateinu than it does for “Zionism caused the Holocaust.” Because it didn’t and common sense alone can prove it.

After the Holocaust the descendants of the very same people cursing Zionists and Zionism had to take refuge in the land of the Zionist medina because their own lands and homes where they were so eager to live in service to the gentile were gone. Today they live in Israel and curse the Zionist instead.

    I just came back from the March of the Living, spending a week in Poland and Israel. Your post is so relevant.

    The Satmar Rebbe, in his book, claims that the miracles of the State of Israel resemble the miracles performed by false prophets with the intention on leading people astray. That’s how they could answer that question.

    “After the Holocaust the descendants of the very same people cursing Zionists and Zionism had to take refuge in the land of the Zionist medina because their own lands and homes where they were so eager to live in service to the gentile were gone. ” That is why we should take our cue from the Holocaust and liquidate the exile, before it liquidates us. Rabbi Shlomo Yissachar Teichtal, other of Eima HaBanim Semeicha, the authot of a halachic work supporting Zionism written completely in hiding during the Shoah, argues that just as it is forbidden to use an instrument of sin, we cannot live any longer in exile, since those lands caused us to stumble and sin. The only place for Jews is Eretz Yisrael.

    I’m no fan of the elements you are addressing, but you have their position a little wrong. You need to get more familiar with their views before commenting on them. You have a simplistic understanding here. R’ Yoel, whether he was correct or totally misguided, was definitely a pretty smart dude, as his worst enemies would reluctantly concede.

    There’s nothing wrong with living in Israel. Nobody disputes this. It’s a mitzva. Tzadikim since forever would strive to live there. It’s no big surprise that the inhabitants of Israel were spared: they have the merit of the land on their side. (Rommel came pretty darn close though).

    Their problem is with the Israeli Government, and prior to 1948, the Zionist leaders, and its perceived anti-Torah mission. They accuse those leaders of angering the world and God and this led to hatred followed by attacks. They hold the Zionist responsible for causing the holocaust, both in political terms and spiritual. Essentially Zionists murdered the Jews of Europe.

    So Zionists made Hitler mad and he carried out the Holocaust? Please tell me you’re not trying to move that one. Because Hitler in Mein Kampf blamed the sight of an Orthodox Jew for making him hate Jews.

    Angering the world? The world has been angry at Jews for thousands of years. Who made the Crusaders angry at Jews? Time traveling Zionists?

    The Zionists told the Jews to leave Europe. Anyone who blames Zionists for causing the Holocaust, had better have a good track for doing the same thing.

    Well, when Carpet Chewer heard about the boycott made by the Jewish organisations around the world, he got very mad, and of course chewed some carpet, and vowed to take revenge. This can definitely be looked at as an insignificant episode; usually an event like this is not the cause of such a great campaign. However, I’m just pointing out that these organisations did, in fact, get him mad.

  5. samuraimohel says:

    Mein Kampf was written in the mid 20’s. The Anti-Nazi boycott was in the 30’s. So he was mad at Jews long before the boycott.

    This was what Hitler himself wrote in Mein Kampf

    “There were few Jews in Linz. In the course of the centuries their outward appearance had become Europeanized and had taken on a human look; in fact, I even took them for Germans. The absurdity of this idea did not dawn on me because I saw no distinguishing feature but the strange religion. The fact that they had, as I believed, been persecuted on this account sometimes almost turned my distaste at unfavorable remarks about them into horror.

    Once, as I was strolling through the Inner City, I suddenly encountered an apparition in a black caftan and black hair locks. Is this a Jew? was my first thought. For, to be sure, they had not looked like that in Linz. I observed the man furtively and cautiously, but the longer I stared at this foreign face,
    scrutinizing feature for feature, the more my first question assumed a new form:

    Is this a German? As always in such cases, I now began to try to relieve my
    doubts by books. For a few hellers I bought the first antiSemitic pamphlets of my life.”

    Jews who try to blame other Jews for Hitler are ignoring a 1000 years of German anti-semitism, which made it popular for the Nazis to hate Jews, no matter what Jews did.
