Dear Concerned Citizen,

Children of Survivors, Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren of Survivors and all humanity who support and cry out zero tolerance towards Anti-Semitism.

We are all well aware that Anti-Semitism has again raised its ugly head in Europe.

We know Anti- Semitism constantly lies low but grabs the opportunity to manifest itself in many different guises.

Aalst , a small city in Belgium holds an annual parade. At this event, everyone and everything is shamelessly mocked, ridiculed and mercilessly attacked. Political correctness has never been adhered to at this event.

This past year, the carnival showed floats depicting caricatures of Orthodox Jews standing on sacks of money. These models had rats adorned on them most prominently. Has this obnoxious theme gone too far?

74 Years after the Holocaust.

74 Years after 6 million of our brothers and sisters were murdered.

74 Years after the establishment of the United Nations and its supposedly human-rights charter.

We all understand that these Caricatures were the tools used by the Nazis to taunt and ridicule Jews and Judaism!

This event cannot be ignored! The Mayor, Mr C D’Haese of Aalst defends this display of racism and anti-Semitism and sees no wrong. We are the voices of those who can no longer speak. We are the ears of those who can no longer hear.

We are absolutely compelled to show our revulsion, disgust, and anger at this blatant display of hatred, racism and anti-Semitism against the Jewish people.

TO SAY WE DID NOT KNOW OR TO IGNORE, IS NO LONGER AN ANSWER!!!!
