In part one, I discussed the backstory of the alleged Arrow Cross shootings. I left off mentioning the ZAKA search for more remains in the Danube following the discovery of the remains of 15 people in 2011.
The request for ZAKA to search the river came from Israeli Orthodox and Hasidic groups. However, not all Jewish groups endorsed the endeavor. Hungary’s largest Jewish group, Mazsihisz, urged ZAKA to halt the search. From the Times of Israel article pictured below:
“Hungary’s largest Jewish group has called to halt an Israeli-led effort to uncover the remains of Holocaust victims who were shot and thrown into the Danube river in Budapest during World War II.
A sonar scan of the bottom of the Danube on Tuesday revealed no human remains, but the team operating the sonar reportedly intend to return next month for another scan.”
Apparently the Mazsihisz got their way, as I can find no news about a second search. There should have been a second search, and a third search, and so on until the Holocaust officials were forced to explain why there are no remains of the 20,000 Jews that were allegedly shot and thrown into the river.
This is not the only instance of Jewish burial law being used as an excuse to not investigate an alleged crime scene. “Respect for the victims” has barred any meaningful investigation of Treblinka, where about 900,000 Jews were said to be murdered. I ask where the respect is for the Germans who were branded as guilty with no fair trial. And, no, the Nuremberg trials were not fair and did nothing to prove the Holocaust narrative.
The legitimacy of the claim to be respecting the dead also comes into question. Let’s look at some of the exceptions to the Jewish burial law. The following excerpt is from the site of the Chabad-Lubavitch, which is considered to be the most dynamic force in Jewish life today. None of these exceptions really apply to the search for the bodies of Holocaust survivors. However, I found some of the exceptions to be interesting:
This next excerpt is from the website of The Rabbinical Assembly, an international association of Conservative rabbis. It is a paper from 1996 on exhuming the dead that has been approved by the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards. Here there is an exception that very much applies to exhuming Holocaust survivors from alleged mass graves. Point B says, “When a burial site is unprotected from robbers or natural forces, it is permissible to remove bodies to locations that are not so compromised.”
There is also the fact that Jewish remains have been exhumed and reburied before, as illustrated by the following entry from Holocaust Encyclopedia. It would seem that pleas to respect the dead are actually an attempt to hide something—something like the lack of human remains where they should be.
In the end, Jewish law should not dictate whether a crime scene is investigated or not. In a just world, the Allies would have had an obligation to prove their accusations against the German people in a legitimate court of law where the Germans could properly defend themselves. Instead, the Germans were subjected to a kangaroo court and an endless supply of libelous propaganda that continues to this day.
