FP: Certain Jews who could have intervened then did not. And many Jews who can intervene today (i.e. George Soros), do not. Your thoughts?
Lancz: Yes Jamie, this is something that perplexes and angers me to no end. During the war, entire nations and most egregiously influential Jews in the West, who had the clout and wherewithal to intervene, chose not to lift a finger, for a variety of reasons, the foremost being to protect their own skins, from being perceived as having dual loyalties and to prevent fanning the flames of anti-Semitism directed at themselves, thereby jeopardizing their status and good standing in society.
It seems that to these despicable specimens, pragmatic and pusillanimous self-interest outweighed any moral and ethical compulsion to save their very own brethren from annihilation. Which brings us to today, when Jews are once again being hunted down the world over for being Jews, and Israel — the new “Jew of the Nations” is targeted for extinction and the lib-left Jews are o.k. with it.
The most egregious example today is a powerful, prominent, billionaire Hungarian Jewish Holocaust survivor abandoning his brethren (Israel) in their direst hour of need. It is the most execrable of “Kapos,” namely George Soros. During Dante’s Inferno, the living hell that was Budapest in 1944, this monster actually assisted the Nazis in the round-up of his own people (by assisting in confiscating the property of Jews). When one juxtaposes the super human exertions of a righteous gentile like Wallenberg, who single-handedly sacrificed his life to save more Jews during the Holocaust than most nations, with the ignominious conduct of certain Jews then and now, like Soros,the picture becomes very clear indeed.
FP: What do you think the significance is of Wallenberg having come to study in the U.S. and witness American exceptionalism first hand?
Lancz: The significance of his having studied and familiarized himself with Ameircan exceptionalism is I think profound and instructive. I feel that Wallenberg came to adopt and embrace our very best values and foundational principles, the “can do” spirit of American know-how, courage, self-sacrifice, generosity, patriotism and altruism –all grounded in individual liberty. These defining character traits — most of which he already possessed in abundance – most assuredly energized him with the moral and intestinal fortitude that enabled him to accomplish his unparalleled feats.
FP: What is Wallenberg’s legacy at its core? If Wallenberg were alive today, where he would stand on the conflicts we face today?
Lancz: Wallenberg’s legacy at its core is the defining existential struggle of our time, our struggle, pitting civilized man against barbarian, individualism vs. statism, conservatism vs. liberalism, right vs. wrong, good vs. evil — in a nut shell, liberty vs. tyranny.
Make no mistake about it, were Wallenberg alive today, he would shudder in disbelief to witness how far his beloved America — from which he drew such incredible inspiration – has come away from its founding constitutional principles, based on individual human rights and freedoms, towards a soft tyranny thanks to our first post-American President.
