The Auschwitz pilgrimage redirected

Many Israeli teenagers at age 17, in the last year of high school, just before the army, take an educational trip to Auschwitz.  The trip is organized by schools and the teenagers are thoroughly psychologically prepared, if that is possible.  My daughter has just been at the first preparatory meeting with her mother, so that in September or October she will go to visit the place her grandmother barely survived.

I used to support this program.  Although personally I would never go myself (I can always recall the footage of bulldozers piling mountains of human skeletons) I had no objections to my daughter going.  But now I am beginning to have my doubts.

You see, I do not want the sons of daughters of Americans to start coming to Israel one day on a pilgrimage to visit what remains of the nuclear devastation resulting from Iranian-Israel nuclear exchange.  Perhaps we could pause for a year or two with the Auschwitz program and instead send our kids to the US to explain to their stupid Jewish cousins what is going on here.  

The stupid Jewish cousins who overwhelmingly voted for a President who according to Bret Stephens  instead of  backing Iran into a corner has  been backed into one by Ahmadinejad  and whose Secretary of State  " In her first game of high-stakes diplomatic poker ...is leaving the table dressed only in a barrel." 

This Dalton brothers image would be funny if it were not terrifying. Because from yesterday it has become clear that the only thing that can make a difference now is an Israeli preemptive strike on the Iranian nuclear facilities.

Could our children make a difference?  Yes. The March of the Living would indeed be that - to show somnambulist Americans what the real word feels like.
