Some, not all - of the hatred and hostility against Israel has to do with antisemitism. But on this day we should remember the Shoah in order to understand horrible crimes that humans are capable of committing, and what could happen, if common and daily prejudices are used in order to push for this or that agenda. The nazis were not aliens from another galaxy. They were ordinary human beings - your next door neighbour. Each and every individual has the potential for Good and Evil. Therefore, we can never relax and lean back. But moving beyond the individual psyche, we find that it is important to fight for the democratic system. You can´t erase evil, mental sickness and crime for all eternity, but a democracy contains tools in order to handle and fight the bad and destructive aspects of the human being.
