    or, again, the rejection of Zionism and the Jewish state which was its creation, since it was a mostly secular effort to save our people from a rising and violent European antisemitism. More dangerous to those of us, orthodox and secular, who choose in the face of history to continue life in the comfort of the Diaspora despite its obvious and recurrent dangers, the assumption that Shoah was a European phenomenon and could not happen here, wherever that Here might be. Shoah was but the most recent eruption of a Gospel?s-based theology of hate towards Jewry. And because it lies at the very heart of the religious community among whom the majority of world Jewry continues to reside, the threat is still a reality waiting to reoccur. Thank you Esther Farbstein for your patience and diligence in forcing open this missing chapter in our history May your efforts assist in breaking through the wall of Holocaust denial peculiar to our own people.
