Holocaust Remembrance Day Is Meaningless

Yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. And much as I hate to say it, it’s meaningless. Almost to the point of farce. Because it has no meaning. Let’s look at few of today’s cartoons. Let’s look at Germany’s Angela Merkel first. She made the usual poignant speech about how it is [Read More]
