Why Israel is bad for jews pt.3

This must be the most imaginative conspiracy theory since the ‘North Korea supplies Syria with nuclear technology’-hype: ‘The book describes the alleged visit of Hezbollah officials to Auschwitz, led by the Vatican: “We came to the camps. We saw the trains, the platforms, the piles of eyeglasses and clothes … We came to learn … Our escort spoke as he was taught. We quickly explained to him: Every real Arab, deep inside, is kind of a fan of the Nazis.”‘ Sounds like a real-life conversation to you? ‘Our escort spoke as he was taught’? Excuse me? And there’s us thinking the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was the most ridiculously ‘how to make up a conspiracy in 12 easy lessons’-thing you could possibly come up with… Take a lesson from the masters of paranoia: ‘The booklet was published by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, in cooperation with the chief rabbi of Safed, Rabbi Shmuel Eliahu, and has been distributed for the past few months. The booklet, titled “On Either Side of the Border,” purports to be the testimony of “a Hezbollah officer who spied for Israel.”  “The book is distributed regularly [in the IDF] and everyone reads it and believes it,” said one soldier. “It’s filled with made-up details but is presented as a true story. A whole company of soldiers, adults, told me: ‘Read this and you’ll understand who the Arabs are.'” Bets on the survival of a colonising power that places its trust in this kind of crap, anyone? No one? Yeah well…
