I have often thought upon the stories of how the Allied forces, when they liberated the camps, forced the local citizens to go out to the camps and view the results of the great evil which they had allowed to take place. Many of the locals expressed some level of horror, claiming they really didn't know what was taking place under the Nazis. Still, I could never quite accept that, and would be left feeling that the people should have risen up against their government and come to the aid of their fellow human beings. I could not help but think that if I had been in that position I would not have stood for it. I'd have had to do something. Conscience would have demanded it regardless of consequences. Just what kind of depraved citizenry could allow such a thing to happen?
Fast forward 70 years. The Jewish Holocaust only a painful memory. Yes, there is a whole religion which simultaneously denies the first Jewish Holocaust while it preaches the need for a second, but we have not yet seen its implementation. However, we are already in the midst of another holocaust involving even greater numbers and just as much evil. If you can watch the following video and join your fellow countrymen in calmly sitting by and ignoring it, ...well, then it would appear that your conscience is already seared.
In our hearts and minds we cannot help but pass judgment on those citizens of Nazi Germany who turned their backs and ignored the evil which was happening in their midst. But we should be careful to keep a mirror handy.
" For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." (Matthew 7:2)
Do you believe the German people individually bear some responsibility for their lack of action? Then we bear some responsibility for our lack of action in our modern abortion holocaust. Do you believe that the downfall of the Nazi government was a just reward for carrying out the Holocaust? Then where does that leave our nation?
