    which has resulted in the impact of The Holocaust been eroded, and now compared with the genocides that occured under communism. With The Holocaust no longer been seen as a seperate 'special' event but as part of the wider machinations that occured in Europe during the 20th Century a vital revenue stream for Israel is under threat. Hence the desperate attempts by Israel to get Planet Earth back on the 'official' take on the Holocaust. Obviously if Israel fails to get Europe back on the 'official' story, then Israel can severe all ties with Europe. But The Holocaust is not the only genocide to happen in Europe in the 20th century and is in fact the culmianation of a struggle between left and right wing ideologies. By understanding this, we will prevent it occuring again. Communism afterall was a Jewish invention.
