04/17/2015 United States (The Christian Post) – The Rev. Franklin Graham warned on Holocaust Remembrance Day on Thursday that another holocaust might become a reality, pointing to the influx of Muslim immigrants into Europe and the United States, who he said are “bringing their hatred of Jews and Christians with them.”
“Could the holocaust be repeated? I’m afraid so. Anti-Semitism is at the highest levels since the late 1930s. This is coming from the influx of Muslim immigrants to Europe, the United States, and other Western countries over the past few decades, and they are bringing their hatred of Jews — and Christians — with them,” Graham wrote in a Facebook message.
“This is a poison. Muslims have been on TV in Europe spouting ‘Hitler should have finished the job!’ Have we learned anything from history?” he asked.
Muslim immigrants have at times expressed anti-Semitic views in TV segments, such as a group of teenage Turkish Muslim immigrants to the Netherlands who in March 2013 said on Dutch TV that Hitler “should have killed all Jews.”
Holocaust Remembrance Day was marked around the world on Thursday, remembering the 6 million Jews who lost their lives under the Nazi Regime during World War II.
Earlier in the day, Israel came to a standstill when marking 70 years since the end of the war, Haaretz reported.
President Reuben Rivlin participated in a ceremony at Kibbutz Givat Mordechai, and said: “Alongside the murdered, I think of you, the Holocaust survivors who are still among us, many of you displaced children who war and destruction tore from your families.”
