The definition of the word blame is as follows: assign responsibility for a fault or wrong.
For a millennium, the Jews have been blamed as the cause of the world’s problems.
The most recent accusation comes from the extreme right-wing Popular Orthodox Party (LAOS) and Golden Dawn groups coming out of Greece. With the Grecian economy on an extremely southward downward spiral, these groups have chosen an age old target to focus their rage and anger on: the Jews.
What is scary is that not only do these groups deny the Holocaust, but they would be more than willing to re-create it. Their mixture of lies and re-written history proves that history is once again repeating itself.
Assigning blame to one particular group (especially when the accusation is based on lies) is immature, childish and detrimental to our development as a species. It also signals, to me at least, that the lessons of the past have not been learned.
It’s time to be adults. We cannot keep throwing around unfounded accusations and think that once this group or that group is gone, the world will be a better place. The violence and destruction, is in my opinion, counterproductive. If we want to make this world a better place for our children, we need to open our eyes and see that it is more multiple factors. In the case of the Grecian economy, the IMF, the European Union and the worldwide economy may have contributed to the country’s current economic status.
Assigning blame because it is easy helps no one. We need to open our eyes and use our brains before opening our mouths.
Simple as that.
