Can the observance of Yom HaShoah possibly be given added weight and significance? Emphatically, yes. Today there is a new Hitler who wants to destroy the Jewish people and the old adage “Never Again” has never been more meaningful.
Yom HaShoah commemorated this year on April 28 has to be more than commemorating the horrific past. It must be about combating the deadliest enemy that the Jewish people have ever faced, a nuclear armed Iran.
We must use the lessons of the past on what we must do today. History must note that six million voices claimed victory over those who would again bring darkness into the world. On Yom HaShoah let us declare that Never Again Is Now, then proceed to launch the greatest assault the world has ever seen on an enemy that is determined to unleash a nuclear nightmare upon America, Israel, and the citizens of the free world.
When being threatened with extinction Holocaust Remembrance Day is every day. We must act with lighting speed because Congress still believes they have time to negotiate with Iran while the majority believes there is nothing we can do to stop them.
To reverse this untenable position there must be a great awakening, one that instills within us an indomitable spirit that victory is within reach. Creating this great awakening is the purpose of this campaign.
While promoting his 9-9-9 tax policy, Herman Cain was asked, “Do you think there is a will in Washington for politicians to put their careers on the line to do the right thing?” And he replied, “Not without the will of the people, without a massive activist grassroots movement from the bottom up. They are not going to do it from the inside. When they feel the heat, they will see the light.” We the people must be the heat.. We have to take on the Goliath.
We, Jews and Christians together, must be that Goliath. The Never Again Is Now campaign provides the catalyst so we can achieve this objective.
In January we posted an ad in the Jewish Voice and Opinion, and the reaction to our campaign proved that a six million army of Never Again is no phantom army.
When told about the response they received from my ad, I was overjoyed. The editor wrote, “We have been inundated with calls and emails since the January issue came out with your ads. People have been telling us that they know Iran is a terrible problem, but they didn’t think they could do anything about it. Your ads seem to have motivated them to make their voices heard by contacting Congressmen, both their own, and others.
Please encourage all you know to join with us in this campaign to stop Iran.
