Another phony baloney

Elie Wiesel is a Jewish-American writer, holocaust survivor, & Nobel laureate whose high-flown rhetoric is often quoted for its humanity. His most famous quote is: “I swore never to be silent whenever & wherever human beings endure suffering & humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” So true but complete baloney in the mouth of Wiesel, a rabid Zionist who only makes self-aggrandizing comments like this to better peddle Zionism & shill for Israel. He has never spoken out in opposition to Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians because he supports it. Norman Finkelstein politically eviscerated Wiesel in the book “The Holocaust Industry” where in discussing the role Wiesel plays he said, “There’s no business like Shoah business.” (Photo of Wiesel probably from one of his self-promoting screeds)
