Earth, Cover Not Their Blood

Today sirens sounded throughout Israel to mark the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day set aside to mark the Nazi Final Solution of "the Jewish Problem." That final solution caused the deaths of six million Jews, as well millions of others (Russians, Poles, homosexuals, Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc.).

I would suggest that all such holocausts be remembered:

The slaughter and forced relocations of Armenians by the Turks.

The slaughter of native Americans by encroaching foreigners.

The slaughter of unarmed and impoverished people in Darfur.

Bosnia and Kosovo.


We must remember, for if we forget history will only repeat itself. History has a way of educating us, you see.
