Elie Wiesel was born in Romania the location of the above memorial.
By a miracle…Wiesel, Jewish Survivor of the Nazi Holocaust
‘Humanitarian Wisdom Writer’.
Awarded 1986 Nobel Peace Prize; 1992 Presidential Medal of Freedom; 1984 Congressional Gold Medal; 2009 National Humanities Medal, 1986 Medal of Liberty, 2000 Lifetime Literary Achievement Award; 1973 National Jewish Book Award for Modern Jewish Thought & Experience ‘Souls on Fire’.
Islam teaches that the Holocaust never happened. This claim is a deliberate lie that which Islam calls ‘Taqiyya’– the ‘Art of Deceit’ as taught by ‘Muhammad’ which is founded upon the idea that it is the duty of all ‘True Muslims’ to lie to all ‘Non-Muslims.’ The Qur’an teaches believers that unbelievers are their enemies deemed as being kafir/infidels/ vermin inferior to Muslims.
What Elie Wiesel said about ‘God Creator’…
“Blessed be God’s name? Why, but why would I bless Him? Every fiber in me rebelled. Because He caused thousands of children to burn in His mass graves? Because he kept six crematoria working day and night, including Sabbath and the Holy Days? Because in His great might, He had created Auschwitz, Birkenau, Buna, and so many other factories of death? How could I say to Him: Blessed be Thou, Almighty, Master of the Universe, who chose us among all nations to be tortured day and night, to watch as our fathers, our mothers, our brothers, end up in the furnaces? Praised be Thy Holy Name, for having chosen us to be slaughtered on Thine alter?” (i)
(i) Book ‘Night’ by Elie Wiesel; the book was published as 178 pages in 1958 France titled… ‘La Nuit’ and in 1960 a 116-page version titled ‘Night’ was published in USA. The book focused on the horrible experience of the evil holocaust, reveals Wiesel at the age of 15 years identifying the death of his God and his absolute disgust with mankind. Wiesel was 16 years old when the US Army liberated him and other survivors from Buchenwald in April 1945. His father with him in the Nazi Concentration Camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald during 1944-45 did not make it- he was beaten to death.
Wiesel wrote that a prisoner functionary [German: Funktionshäftling] called a Kapo by the SS said to him “Here there are no fathers, no brothers, no friends. Everyone lives and dies for himself alone.”
Because of this nightmare inhumane experience Wiesel justifiably lost his faith in God and mankind. And whilst he did in the years ahead regain some of his faith in good people, nevertheless the scars in his mind remained for ever. And his faith in God was limited with great reservation because God Creator has a history of doing absolutely nothing when people are suffering and in need of help.
“Then came the march past the victims. The two men were no longer alive. Their tongues were hanging out, swollen and bluish. But the third rope was still moving: the child, too light, was still breathing… And so, he remained for more than half an hour, lingering between life and death, writhing before our eyes. And we were forced to look at him at close range. He was still alive when I passed him. His tongue was still red, his eyes not yet extinguished. (i)
“Behind me, I heard the same man asking: “For God’s sake, where is God?” And from within me, I heard a voice answer: “Where He Is? This is where…hanging here from the gallows…” That night, the soup tasted of corpses.” (i)
Elie Wiesel 1958
(i) Book ‘Night’
A.I. comments again: It is often written by others that the horror of the ‘Holocaust’ must never be allowed to happen again. But far too many people in the Western World that should know better have been turning a blind eye ignoring reality pretending the problem no longer exists.
Mass murder and cruel persecution has been happening throughout the 20th Century into the early 21st Century in different countries around the globe and most people in the West true to their apathy and cowardice, pretend it is not happening and refuse to protest. The incident of ‘Holocausts’ may change its style and reason, but the cruelty, persecution and killing continues…such is the evil of mankind. And such is the uncaring nature of ‘God Creator’ that clearly does not exist.
Now in 2014 in Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan, with Palestine and Iran equally committed to supporting Islamic Insanity, a new evil holocaust of cruelty is marching forward killing Muslims and Non-Muslims, raping women and little girls, burying people alive, beheading countless thousands, using the evil slow ‘Halal’ throat slitting method used on all animals, crucifying people even more cruelly than the ‘Ancient Roman method’ -such is the rapidly expanding military force called the ‘Islamic State’ (Al-Qaeda) dreaming of a Caliph to rule the World and the equally insane Taliban and Hamas; and at the point of time of this paragraph insertion on the 17th August 2014, the Western World and the United Nations has done nothing to stop the I.S. insane evil expansion. Barrack Hussein Obama the President of the United States of America, authorized a few weak-minded bombing air raids, which acted as a thorn in the side of I.S. military, but is not stopping the ‘Islamic State’ advance and takeover expansion. Such is the incompetent behavior of pro-Islam Obama, who is political friends of Muslim tyrant Erdogan of Turkey.
Sadly, there is only one solution when dealing with such evil cruel ‘Belief System’ thinking and behavior- We that value ‘Liberty’ for all…must for a moment of time when fighting such evil enemies become temporarily inhumane- the I.S. must be violently wiped out to the last person, all men and women that fight for the preservation and expansion of such evil madness, must not be tolerated, and must be removed from the face of the earth. Take no prisoners when dealing with such inhumane creatures. The Nazi SS & Gestapo had to be eliminated by force and likewise the ‘Islamic State’ must be destroyed- there is no other reasonable solution. Using violent methods, we the ‘Free World’ have no choice, but to send in armies of highly skilled ‘Rough Men’ to destroy completely the ‘Islamic State’ evil ‘Belief System’ founded upon insanity.
But even this last objective statement is only true, justified and necessary, if we in the West are truly committed to the complete destruction of the ‘Islamic State’. It is not worth the loss of one military life, if we are not deadly serious about completely wiping out the vicious anti-freedom enemy. And that’s the problem –politicians have a history of lack of courage and are too often, not committed enough to win a war by taking out the enemy. It is pointless taking risks and accepting collateral damage and loss of life, if we are not persistently determined to win, without submission.
All military personnel have the right to expect with confidence that if they risk their life to make the world a safer place, then at least politicians are duty bound by the law of courage, ethics and honour, to support the military in their most urgent hours of need, without hesitation in any which way.
America and allies should not be engaged in these wars, in these countries, we should not be in Syria, Iraq, or Afghanistan. The ‘Jihad Muslims’ don’t want us there and we should not want to be there, it is not our war. Saudi Arabia the heart of Islam has the wealth to fight these wars, if they will not act, it is not our problem. Islam must sort itself out. Our only responsibility is to help all non-Muslims escape these war-torn regions. Muslims want Islam, let them have it and the misery Islam creates, we do not want Muslim refugees in the West that simply want to bring their garbage belief system with them to overthrow the West.
In a war, a totalitarian country must be completely conquered, all the evil eliminated and the good helped and protected. If Politicians are not committed to such a ruthless level of invasion, like WWII D-Day, then a country should not be invaded. North Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan wars are all failures, due to the cowardice of politicians that refused to give the military the complete authority to invade the country and finish the job. North Korea still exists as a danger since the beginning of the 25th June 1950 start of the Korean War, and now with Nuclear Arms, is extremely dangerous. This threatening constant situation would not exist, if the war had continued with determination and invaded North Korea and kept fighting, until all despots were wiped out. Millions of innocent victim North Koreans are starving, and it is believed that during the 1990’s over three and a half million North Koreans died from starvation, and no doubt tens of thousands have tragically died, through the process of negligence and injustice, since the end of the Korean War on the 27th July 1953, under the rule of evil despots. Millions of future lives could have been saved by conquering North Korea during the Korean War and destroying all the despots. Despots never starve, only their oppressed people suffer medical neglect and starvation. We humans are accountable by our failure in politics to make good correct decisions. We must hold politicians accountable for their cowardice and incompetence.
If we make a commitment to do a job, do it right with courage and determination in heart and finish it, no acceptance of defeat or failure. Keep going until victory is reality.

“We cannot indefinitely avoid depressing subject matter, particularly if it is true, and in the subsequent quarter century the world has had to hear a story it would have preferred not to hear – the story of how a cultured people turned to genocide, and how the rest of the world, also composed of cultured people, remained silent in the face of genocide.” # (i)
“I pray to the God within me that He will give me the strength to ask Him the right questions.” (i)
A.I. comments: # History is repeating itself, far too many people, Muslims & Non-Muslims, are silent about the danger of anti-freedom ‘Islamic Doctrine’ spreading around the globe, randomly killing and maiming people, in the name of ‘Jihad Instructions’ from the Qur’an, verified by Hadiths and approved by the example of Muhammad’s Jihad against all unbelievers, that whom he called Kafir vermin.
When we read closely Wiesel’s despairing words we see a feeling of distress and deep sadness at having been forced to experience such hell as millions of Jewish victims suffered, but Wiesel’s scars in mind and emotion were infinitely deeper, because as a survivor he had to endure and live with those memories for the rest of his life. Putting ourselves in his position, we can never, no matter how much we try to understand, we cannot ever comprehend the true terror and hardship which he and other less fortunate victims experienced. But we can understand that God did not come to the aid of the six million Jews murdered in this Holocaust and likewise has not helped all the other millions of helpless victims in the ‘Killing Fields’ of War and Terror that has continued to rule the planet around the globe into the 21st Century.
It therefore is not a surprise that Wiesel made the following statement years later…

“I rarely speak about God. To God yes. I protest against Him. I shout at Him. But open discourse about the qualities of God, about the problems that God imposes, theodicy, no. And yet He is there, in silence, in filigree.”
Elie Wiesel 1978
… in a 1978 interview with John S. Friedman, published in The Paris Review 26 (Spring 1984); and in Elie Wiesel: Conversations (2002) edited by Robert Franciosi, p. 87
A.I. comments: What impressed me significantly, was that despite all the terrible cruelty he had experienced, Elie Wiesel never allowed himself to be consumed by hatred. This courageous honest wise understanding of human nature and existence demonstrates that beyond a shadow of doubt Wiesel has strong character and a true sense of caring honour, and for all of us, is a living character of the kind of person we should all strive, to always be.
It is a privilege to have learned such great wisdom from this man. And by his conviction that nothing is achieved by allowing oneself to be consumed by hatred… it reminds me of why Einstein preferred Buddhism to any other religion, because Buddhism at the bottom line rejects cruelty and killing except in self-defence and likewise teaches that hatred is not appeased by hatred, but rather by non-hatred.

“I had anger but never hate. Before the war, I was too busy studying to hate. After the war, I thought, what’s the use? To hate would be to reduce myself.”

“I have not lost faith in God. I have moments of anger and protest. Sometimes I’ve been closer to him for that reason.” (i)

A.I. comments: Despite the hell he lived, Wiesel never gave up completely on God because he needed guiding communication and ‘Cosmicism’ shares that need.
Until Atheism can answer that final question as recorded further along in my written works…Atheism shall be held back from confirming that ‘God of Creation’- a guiding ‘Cosmic Great Spirit of Consciousness’ does not exist. The evidence is out there, which proves that ‘God Creator’ does not exist…I have seen it. Each person must open their mind and look outside the square to see the truth.

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. The Talmud tells us that by saving a single human being, man can save the world. We may be powerless to open all the jails and free all the prisoners, but by declaring our solidarity with one prisoner, we indict all jailers. None of us is in a position, to eliminate war, but it is our obligation to denounce it and expose it in all its hideousness. War leaves no victors, only victims. I began with the story of the Besht. And, like the Besht, mankind needs to remember more than ever. Mankind needs peace more than ever, for our entire planet, threatened by nuclear war, is in danger of total destruction. A destruction only man can provoke, only man can prevent. Mankind must remember that peace is not God’s gift to his creatures, it is our gift to each other. (iv)

“…to remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all…”
Elie Wiesel 1958
(i) Book ‘Night’
Allan Ivarsson closes in recap…
It is clear… ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ rejects the existence of a ‘God Creator’ and says that…
A ‘God of Creation’ is only a spiritual guide, an advisor and is powerless in physical terms to intercede and help humans in trouble, which is why God cannot save any person. They must be able to save themselves, but if they are powerless to escape, then death is their nightmare and worse, if death is slow and cruel.
Most insects suffer a cruel death fate and they are just as instinctively fearful of death as we humans are. If God exists, it has no physical power of any kind.
Author’s Note: ‘Elie Wiesel’ was first published in pdf format on e-mail to global friends on 5th August 2015.
Postscript: I, Allan, over the decades keep reading and hearing people, say in different choices of words that “God is watching all of us and is witnessing all evil acts and that when he is ready, he will act and come down upon all evil persons and save us.”
For the last ten thousand years, plus… believers in God (Monotheism) and Gods (Pantheism) have all believed the same kind of wishful thoughts, waiting for an imaginary God or Gods to come to save us. It has never happened and will never happen.
Now hear this… loud and clear… God Creator is not coming to help us, not now, not ever, because a ‘God Creator’ does not exist. This is not Atheism, this is hard core reality.
We are alone and must help ourselves by changing the way we think.
If a God Creator does exist… he is a mischievous Q God sitting up their watching a “Three Million Year Movie” titled ‘Human Earth Time’ watching excitedly, the chain of historical events, around the globe in every culture, advanced and primitive, laughing and enjoying the action of battle and misery humans experienced, and becoming enthusiastic as earth’s natural disaster events killed more people. He an imaginary God, has done nothing to help and protect humans in need of aid and support. Reminds us of us humans, watching an exciting film, doesn’t it? And we did nothing to save the people in the movie. Likewise, imaginary God Creator does nothing.
