‘Apology for Immoral Act’
The liberal Government-P.M. Trudeau will officially apologize in the House of commons on Nov. 7 for decision to turn away Jewish refugees. In 1 3 , the MS St. Louis left Germany carrying 07 German Jewish passengers fleeing persecution by the Nazi regime looking for refuge in Canada, but they were turned away under the ‘None is Too Many’ immigration policy of the time. Trudeau called “our discrimina- tory, immigration policy.” When Ottawa refused to let the MS St. Louis passengers disembark, the ship returned to (urope. Trudeau called the turning away of the ship a “most egregious” example of the misguided policy. “This was an absolute moral failure on the part of the government, and though of course an apology can’t bring the victims back, we’re committed to doing what we can to right this wrong”. Said Hon. P.M.
No doubt we are all aware of the tragedy of 1 14 decision to turn away the .omagata Maru ship that was carrying 376 migrants, mostly Sikhs. They too got the apology. Apology and regrets for other people’s wrong doings of discrimination, hatred and cruelty proves human care, also proves the existence of good and evil. Moreover, proving the lack of righteousness, mercy, political sanity, ethics and moral values. The tragedy increased by refusal of entry to Jewish refugee who were forced to return to (urope where 254 of those eventually died in the Holocaust with many others. The tragedy of Holocaust (Ha-Shoah) took place between 1 33 and 1 45. In 1 21 Hitler became leader of the Nazi party. The Nazi were racist and believed that their Aryan race was superior to others. To them, an Aryan was anyone who was (uropean and not Jewish, Romany, or Slavic. In 1 34 Hitler became Germany’s head of state. He introduced antiSemitic laws which discriminated against Jewish people living in the areas he controlled. Some of these laws meant that Jewish children could no longer go to school, keep pets or have a bicycle. Unbelievable cruelty, Child abuse and dictatorship of hate-monger. The Nazis believed that Jews were a problem that needed to be removed. The same satanic belief of hatred of Muslims is visible in Genocide of Rohingya Muslims by the notorious Burmese Military and Aung San, prosecution and worst hatred of Palestinian, is like Hitler is reborn. The mass killings of the Holocaust were what Hitler called “The Final Solution”. Such evil acts cannot be called ‘solution’. Yet, even today the same sickness of hatred, political insanity and evil killing is on going. Although, none of the above tragedies was heard in my country (. Africa: we never heard of Holocaust, .omagata Maru, 2 W-WARS. One wonders why is it called WW Africa wasn’t involved in any 2 wars Thus, coming to Canada the Gates of knowledge opened up for us, we discovered Quran, Islam and gained knowledge of Divine Scriptures, as well became aware of all of the tragedies that gave shiver to the Spine, watching the T9 documentary on horrific Holocaust, and Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, people burning from explosion, Black Mushroom Cloud rising, and the rain water turned black. “It was like Hell, this was the Buddhist hell”.
