That’s my take, anyhow.
It’s a museum whose existence makes no sense whatsoever, something Canadians are now waking up to since they’re the ones being stuck with the bill. And what a bizarre rationale for the mausoleum’s existence–to rectify the “injustice” of it not being a Holocaust museum. I’m glad to know, though, that that’s what Asper originally wanted it to be, since it makes a whole lot more sense than what the project has become–a taxpayer-funded shrine to victimhood that showcases atrocity porn and that somehow hopes to use the Holocaust to advance the modern “human rights” agenda (the one that’s divesting us of freedom and endeavouring to destroy the Jewish State, thereby finally completing Hitler’s Final Solution).
Our responsibility is to make reality known and understood, however unpalatable it is. We must direct our funds and energy to current wars, rather than those won despite unbearable losses of human life. We must force eyes onto the real enemy that faces us from the Muslim world, name it, and not retreat into beating down the German Nazis in our collective imaginations over and over again through various shrines to wishful thinking.
UPDATE — with impeccable timing, B’nai Brith issues a press release about “rising anti-Semitism” in Canada which does not use the word “Muslim” even once.
