As reported in The Australian newspaper,
'The paediatric representative from Australia’s peak medical body has suggested asylum seekers on Manus Island and Nauru are in a worse situation than Jews in Auschwitz because people who knew they were going to be gassed by the Nazis “found some sense of relief in knowing what was happening”.
Paul Bauert of the Australian Medical Association [pictured]... said the mental health of detainees in Manus and Nauru had deteriorated because there was no certainty about their future.
“The main reason for the impairment of mental health — as Viktor Frankl the psychiatrist from Auschwitz described very well in his book Man’s Search for Meaning — the main problem that these people have is a lack of meaning, a lack of any end to what is going on, a lack of certainty,” Dr Bauert told Sky News.
“And this more than anything causes severe mental health damage. Even those who finally knew they were about to be condemned to the gas chamber at least found some sense of relief in knowing what was happening.” ....'
He's been shamed into tweeting an apology of sorts for his foul comparison:
“My comments this morning were intended to reflect the writings of an eminent Jewish psychiatrist who survived Auschwitz. The words I used did not convey the complexity of what he wrote. My deep apologies for causing offence. Auschwitz was a humanitarian disgrace."
And the ECAJ has not surprisngly and quite justifiably made a formal protest to the Australian Medical Association, terming Bauert's apology on Twitter "inadequate".
As Dr David Adler, president of the non-leftist Australian Jewish Association (AJA), has written:
"I worked for the AMA as Deputy Medical Secretary when it was a quality professional organisation in the past. That’s where I learnt something about policy and advocacy. I put my heart and soul into it and have a sense of gratitude for the experience and contacts gained during my time there. So it is distressing to see the decline of this once prestigious and respected body."Declares the AJA:
"Trying to conflate an analogy with the Holocaust to support the "Medivac" Bill of Dr Kerryn Phelps is a shameful disgrace.
The Holocaust was a systematic attempt on an industrial scale to exterminate an entire people. Whatever your view of off-shore detention, it is nothing of the sort and to link the two is as ridiculous as it is offensive.
Dr Paul Bauert for the Australian Medical Association (AMA) even suggests that Holocaust victims found some sense of relief in knowing what was happening as they were taken to gas chambers. He is grossly in error - many Holocaust victims were deliberately misled with the gas chambers disguised as shower blocks.. Even the Zyclon B gas was dispersed through shower heads.
AJA President Dr David Adler is formerly AMA Deputy Medical Secretary. He adds "It saddens me to see a once presitigous and highly professional body fracture into an ill informed political activist group. No wonder AMA membership has declined dramatically and only a minority of doctors belong".
We note that Australian security experts have warned that the Medivac Bill would result in people who present risks to others entering Australia.
Would the AMA be comfortable with the restoration of people smuggling and its associated death toll at sea? What of potential victims of those who are a security risk gaining entry? How does it reconcile this with the mission to preserve life?
The AMA stands condemned for using the Holocaust as leverage for a political agenda and meddling in matters of border security."
This is one of the first shots across the bow in a new era of Holocaust Denial.ReplyDelete
The bill has passed the Senate, so it looks as if people smuggling antics will return to Australia's shores. It would be interesting to know whether Dr Kerryn Phelps, one of the key movers of this development, called Bauert out for his disgusting remarks. She is a convert to Judaism.Delete

According to a report by the Open Doors
organization, the top-ten-worst countries
for anti-Christian persecution in year 2015 were:
North Korea, Iraq, Eritrea, Afghanistan,
Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Iran and Libya.
Notice that ALL of these nations are
ruled by Communists or Muslims or both.
Notice that NONE of those nations
are being targeted by the BDS movement!

KALI SAYYID SAID:
“Even if Israel ceased to exist, Jordan, Egypt,
Syria and Saudi Arabia would immediately clash
over Palestine. So the end of Israel does
not guarantee a Palestinian state.”
The Origins of the Middle East Mess,
a Caspian Report by Kali Sayyid [an Arab],
posted as a 9.5-minute YouTube video,
Syria and Jordan would both claim that
Palestine belongs to them for historical reasons.
Egyptian control of Palestine would strengthen
their hold on both sides of the Suez Canal
and help Egypt to become a regional superpower.
Saudi Arabia believes that it is the guardian
of Islamic holy places, which gives it reason
to control Palestine.
ISIS (the Islamic State) has already revealed
that it has no intention of giving the Palestinians
their own independent state, even if all
Jews would leave Palestine.
Therefore, even if Israel were wiped-off-the-map
completely, the Palestinians would probably NOT
get their own state.
Even if the Palestinians did get their own state,
nearby Muslim nations would probably try to take
it away from them.
Three Surprising Critics of the
Anti-Israel BDS Movement
 Peace Now, one of the Left’s most
well-known organizations that never misses
an opportunity to harshly criticize the
Israeli government, has stated that BDS
is tantamount to collective punishment.
 Professor Norman Finkelstein,
another much-admired voice of the Left,
who has made many vicious statements against
Israel, has disavowed the BDS campaign
and called it: “silliness, childishness,
and a lot of leftist posturing.”
 Mahmoud Abbas, President of the
Palestinian Authority, has denounced
the BDS movement. (Will wonders never cease?)
He said: “No, we do not support the boycott of Israel.
We do not ask anyone to boycott Israel itself.
We have relations with Israel.
We have mutual relations with Israel.”
