Francis Carr Begbie reports on “The Power of the Holocaust Lobby in Britain“, the latest project to make a certain ethnic group completely immune from criticism, let alone simple recognition that they are an ethnic group with collective interests:
When it comes to a crude illustration of who has power in Britain you could hardly do better than take a look at the plans for the massive new Holocaust Memorial complex to be built in the centre of London (“Britain’s Promise to Remember: The Prime Minister’s Holocaust Commission Report”). This gleaming new temple of worship for the state religion of the Holocaust will be located, most likely, beside Tower Bridge making it an indelible part of the London skyline and as much a city landmark as Big Ben.
It will be the largest of its kind in Europe and will rival similar memorials such as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, adjacent to the National Mall in Washington, DC, and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York. The British taxpayer is contributing £50 million to this project on the understanding that at least the equivalent is met from private sources. Doubtless this will multiply before it is all over.
