OPEN LETTER TO BAN KI-MOON, UN SECRETARY GENERAL

 

From Nwachukwu Joshua

Your Excellency,

I followed, with great interest, your visit on the 18th of this month, to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland, where millions of Jews and members of other minorities perished during the Second World War under the directives of Hitler.

I must commend your visit because you are among the few world leaders that have visited this camp – a show of courage and strength that you have within. Auschwitz stands as a reminder to men of every time of man’s inhumanity to man.

During your emotional visit, you said  that Auschwitz-Birkenau is not simply a register of atrocities,” and that “In this haunting silence, we see the remnants of human life, we hear the cry of history and humanity. And through all of this, it becomes ever clearer that every life is precious. Every person matters1,”

You stressed, “For our shared future, let us embrace our common duty as members of the human family to build a world of peace, justice, equality and human dignity for all, the world must never forget, deny or downplay the Holocaust, we must remain ever on our guard. And we must do more, far more, to promote equality and fundamental freedoms.”

You also noted that anti-Semitism has not ended since flames of hatred and persecution have risen again to consume other societies – from the killing fields of Cambodia to the forests of Srebrenica and to the hills of Rwanda and that Anti-Semitism retains its hold in too many places. In Europe and elsewhere, migrants, Muslims, Roma and other minorities face rising discrimination.

Your Excellency, I agree with you totally that human life is precious and every person matters and that it is our common duty to fight for the right and freedom of all.

But I think that relegating the issue of anti-Semitism to only discrimination against religious belief though important is rather myopic in this current world.

When we speak about the Holocaust what comes to mind is how a group of people – the Jews, disabled persons, dissents, Poles, Sinti, Roma- were classified as “parasitic” races and “untermenschen” (sub humans) through the arbitrary will of one man( Hitler). This is a sorry situation which you said must never happen again, yet it is happening even now.

In America, Europe, China and elsewhere around the globe, today, governments have classified groups of people like the unborn, the sick, the elderly, the physically challenged as parasites and sub humans, without rights and thus their existence are subject to the discretion of others.

The legalisation of abortion and euthanasia is akin to the Nazi policy towards the Jews, even if camouflaged under the notion of freedom and equality. Innocent children are killed in the millions, the world over in the abortion clinics– the new gas chambers of the modern world. Children in the womb of their mothers are perceived as “diseases” to be cured; the sick and the elderly as “parasites” on the government coffers.

Sir, as Secretary General of the United Nations, I implore you today to be a worthy ambassador for the rights of the unborn, the elderly, and the physically challenged on the floor of the United Nations. I even think that the post of a special rapporteur should be created to be a voice for this voiceless group.

With your experience from the visit, I ask you to proclaim aloud that there is no other right more important than that of life, including the life of the unborn. The United Nations should assume the duty of protecting the lives of millions of unborn children, killed daily in China and many other places. The UN should help curb arbitrariness of leaders who assume the powers to determine when life begins and ends. These leaders who are the modern Hitler’s should be stopped and prosecuted.

And while you at it; please tell the United Nation agencies working in my continent, Africa, help us build institutions of learning and provide the basic amenities of life like water, primary health care. I say this because UN agencies and Foundations like that of Bill and Melinda Gates are flooding us with contraceptives and condoms. They say we need to reduce our population in order to achieve economic growth. Please, please, tell them to stop sending contraceptives and condoms to Africa. We are poor, not for lack contraceptives, but rather because of our corrupt leaders.  If they want to help, they should help us in fighting corruption, and in line with the UN charter. Thank you.

HITLER, THE HOLOCAUST AND ABORTION

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the 18th of this month visited the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland, where millions of Jews and members of other minorities perished during the Second World War.

Auschwitz-Birkenau is not simply a register of atrocities,” Mr. Ban said. “In this haunting silence, we see the remnants of human life; we hear the cry of history and humanity. And through all of this, it becomes ever more clear that every life is precious. Every person matters1,” he stressed.

For our shared future, let us embrace our common duty as members of the human family to build a world of peace, justice, equality and human dignity for all,” he added.

The world must never forget, deny or downplay the Holocaust,” he said. “We must remain ever on our guard. And we must do more, far more, to promote equality and fundamental freedoms.”

He said that nothing can truly prepare a person for a visit to what he called “the epicentre of evil, where systematic murder unique in human history reached its atrocious climax.”

I stare at the piles of glasses, hair, shoes, prayer shawls and dolls, and try to imagine the individual Jews and others to whom they belonged,” he said. I stand in disbelief before the gas chambers and crematorium – and shudder at the cruelty of those who designed this death factory,” he added.

I am very impressed that Ban Ki-moon realises that every life is precious and every person matters. I think more than relegate this call only to the wave of anti-Semitism which is still in existence in places like Cambodia, Srebrenica, which is also important. I think Ban Ki- Moon should also call on Europe and America to also reaffirm the dignity of every human person.

During the Holocaust, we all know how one man, Hitler decided and ordered arbitrary that the Jews, people with disabilities, homosexuals, Jehovah Witness, and many others numbering over 11 to 17 million, should be exterminated from the surface of the earth, because they were seen as “parasitic” races or “untermenschen” (sub humans), since they were perceived to be dangerous to the society.

To achieve this aim, this Nazi government established concentration camps, gas chambers, and extermination camps, where millions of human beings were killed simply because they were Jews or Jehovah witness or “sub humans”.

The reason for referring to these groups of people as parasites or sub humans was because Hitler saw them as the problem of Germany and as hindrances to Germany’s economic and political supremacy.

How, is still yet to be found out.

This shows a culture where blames are apportioned wrongly while the real problems are left not tackled.

Although the Second World War ended officially in 1945. There is a Third World War which has a worse effect and it is targeted not towards the Jews this time but towards the unborn, women, the elderly, the sick and the physical impaired.

This Third World War is pushing for the elimination of some groups which is a continuation of seeing them as parasite and sub humans as hindrances to achieving one’s goal.

In today world, women are told that pregnancy is a “disease” which if accepted will deprive the women the opportunity of achieving her potentials when competing with her men folk. As such they have to “exterminate” the unborn since he/she is a parasite.

To achieve this, governments worldwide and international bodies helped established and are funding abortion clinics, which are the modern day gas chambers, and extermination camps.

In some places too, government have enacted laws which force medical practitioners to exterminate some groups of people like the sick or the elderly since they are only parasite on the government’s coffers.

Acts like this do not respect the conscience or right of the medical practitioners, like the soldiers during Hitler’s time; they either do their “duty” or forfeit their posts.

I too like shudder at the cruelty of those who designed and work at this modern death factory.

Once again, we all must fight to reaffirm that all human life from conception to natural death is precious which is also endowed with rights and freedom, prime among which is the right to life.

ABORTION: THE AMERICAN HOLOCAUST

Ever since the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 in the United States, abortion has become so very important. It now shapes the ideologies of political parties and elections. Electorates want to know if candidates are pro-life or pro-choice before they cast their votes.

Abortion perturbs many people, even though some see it as wrong, they still believe others can do it since they have a right to make a choice. Other people claim that even though abortion is terrible, it should be allowed in cases where conception arises from rape or incest or when the continued pregnancy would endanger the health of a woman.

This jaw-dropping video (180) shows that really there is no difference between murder and abortion. This video shows that there is no difference between what the abortionists and a murderer, Kermit Gosnell did and what Dr. Joseph Mengele did in the Nazi concentration camps back in the 30’s. They are the same thing though with different appellation, also there is no difference between the holocaust in Germany and the new holocaust in America, the only difference may just be that American doctors have set the world record by killing more people than Hitler did. This video calls us to have a 180 degrees turn and advocate that abortion should not allowed.

This video answers the questions, if abortion is any different from murder, if abortion can be justified under any circumstances, if abortion is different form the holocaust of Hitler, if abortionist are any different from Hitler, and if Hitler like any abortionist should be not be termed a criminal and subsequently put in jail.

Abortion unfortunately has been justified by some as a means to empower women to aim for the sky since they can control their reproductive life. A woman’s fertility has been seen more as a burden and an obstacle towards her achieving greatness. On the contrary rather than empower women, abortion has empowered male folk to continue to violate women in an aggressive manner making them worse of. Women deserve better than abortion, they deserve our love, patience and understanding to care for their children right from conception.
