The Simon Wiesenthal Centre Labelled Stepan Bandera a “Nazi Collaborator”

Uniate clergy blessing the formation of the SS Grenadier Division “Galizien” in Lvov in 1943… Bandera supported such scum… he deserves eternal obloquy for that.

On Friday, a prominent Jewish human rights organisation, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, condemned the posthumous award of the title of Hero of the Ukraine to Stepan Bandera, for they consider him a Nazi collaborator, and they blamed him and his minions for the deaths of thousands of Jews during the Second World War. A week ago, a decree of Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko declared that the late leader of the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists should receive the highest Ukrainian decoration. This Friday, he issued another decree recognising the Banderovtsy {thugs organised by Bandera and other “nationalists”, active 1944-early 50s: editor} and all others who attacked Soviet troops as “fighters for Ukrainian independence”.

The Wiesenthal Centre sent a letter to the Ukrainian Embassy in the USA, which stated, “[We have nothing but the] deepest revulsion at these honours awarded Bandera, who collaborated with the Nazis in the early stages of World War II, and whose followers are linked to the killings of thousands of Jews and people of other nationalities. It’s regrettable that President Yushchenko chose to support the legacy of Bandera and these criminals”. They pointed up the fact that Yushchenko gave the award during “a period when the world pauses to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust”, as International Holocaust Remembrance Day is on 27 January. The commemoration falls on the same day that Soviet soldiers liberated the concentration camp in Oświęcim in 1945, the largest in the history of mankind, a veritable “factory of death”.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre, headquartered in Los Angeles, has over 400,000 members and is one of the world’s largest Jewish human rights organisations. They have earned much publicity not only for their fight against modern anti-Semitism, but also for their “hunt for Nazis”, their ruthless pursuit of Nazis fleeing from justice after the war.

I have mixed feelings about the Wiesenthal Centre… it does some good things; others things that it does have evil effect. For instance, their pursuit of John Demjanjuk makes no sense at all. The man served time in an Israeli prison… isn’t that good enough for them? By God, the Israeli guards shook his hand on the day that he learned of his release. They were glad for him… there’s no doubt in my mind that they said afterwards, “Let the old coot go home and enjoy his last years. He’s no danger to anyone”. That’s how normal people all over the world think and talk. In 2010, 65 years after the fall of the Third Reich, none of the major decision makers on either side of the Second World War still survives. The second tier is gone too. All that are left alive today were “spear draggers”… junior officers and rankers with no input into the evil policies of the Nazi junta. In most cases, they only did what they had to do to survive. That being said, one shouldn’t keep silent about the evil committed in that period. All things being equal, we shouldn’t waste our time chasing people who were nothing but mere camp guards… we should focus on standing against the revisionists (many of whom have support from American neocons… go figure!). In any case, God WILL judge. They won’t escape THAT tribunal.
