Re: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Holocaust Remembrance Day speech

As an Oleh Hadash [new immigrant to Israel] (July 2013), son and brother of survivors, native of Transylvania -- escaping Communism as a child and immigrating to US with the assistance of HIAS -- and now a part of the Holocaust studies program at University of Haifa, I feel like the most ardent Zionist on the planet. The PM's speech gave me "goose bumps" but also made my skin crawl. The near exclusive contextualization of the Holocaust for the sake of an inclusive narrativization of national politics went well beyond remembrance.
