Fox News medical consultant, Dr. Keith Ablow, states that Ben Carson is right that the Jews in Germany were weak and scared, and significantly contributed to their massacre. Ablow and Carson claim that Jews should have taken up arms, refused to cooperate with the Germans, and began a rebellion. They should have done this even though they had no idea at the time they were being placed on trains and being shipped to death camps.
Dr. Ablow wrote the following, which is posted at FoxNews.com:
If Jews in Germany had more actively resisted the Nazi party or the Nazi regime and had diagnosed it as a malignant and deadly cancer from the start, there would, indeed, have been a chance for the people of that country and the world to be moved to action by their bold refusal to be enslaved.
Yes, that would have required immeasurable courage. Yes, that would have required unspeakable losses. But is that not the lesson of the Old Testament? Does not Abraham bind his son Issac to an altar, willing to sacrifice his son’s life to God’s Word—to the truth? Must not we all be ready to sacrifice ourselves to stand in the way of evil?
Granted, I was not there. Granted, hindsight is 20/20. But it turns out it was a bad idea for any Jew to have turned over a gun. It was a bad idea for any Jew to have boarded a train. It was a bad idea for any Jew to have passed through a gate into a camp. It was a bad idea for any Jew to do any work at any such camp. It was a bad idea for any Jew to not attempt to crush the skull or scratch out the eyes of any Nazi who turned his back for one moment. And every bullet that would have been fired into a Nazi coming to a doorway to confiscate a gun from a Jew would have been a sacred bullet.
It is beyond offensive for Fox News to publish any type of suggestion that the Jews are to blame for the massacre of 6,000,000 Jews by the Nazi regime. Moreover, it fails to address the fact that the Nazis also killed approximately 5,000,000 non-Jews. Were these other 5,000,000 people simply cowards and weak who contributed to their own death? Fox News also fails to recognize that approximately half of those killed were women and children.
Finally, as always, Fox News fails to perform any research. There was Jewish armed resistance during the Nazi regime. It proved futile, as those resisting were trying to battle one of the most powerful military machines in history, which successfully conquered numerous countries.
As stated in WikiPedia:
Between April and May 1943, Jewish men and women of the Warsaw Ghetto took up arms and rebelled against the Nazis after it became clear that the Germans were deporting remaining Ghetto inhabitants to the Treblinka extermination camp. Warsaw Jews of the Jewish Combat Organization and the Jewish Military Union fought the Germans with a handful of small arms and Molotov cocktails, as Polish resistance attacked from the outside in support. After fierce fighting, vastly superior German forces pacified the Warsaw Ghetto and either murdered or deported all of the remaining inhabitants to the Nazi killing centers. The Germans claimed that they lost 18 dead and 85 wounded, though this figure has been disputed, with resistance leader Marek Edelman estimating 300 German casualties. Some 13,000 Jews were killed, and 56,885 were deported to concentration camps. There were many other major and minor ghetto uprisings, however most were not successful. Some of the ghetto uprisings include the Białystok Ghetto Uprising and the Częstochowa Ghetto Uprising.
