Holocaust exploited

The Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel sought to pity the public with twisted statistics. According to the report, which was issued on Holocaust Remembrance Day, 88% of survivors suffer from chronic illnesses. No wonder: these are people in their late 80s and older. No amount of welfare funding would change that situation.

The report also claims there are 207,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel. After the Holocaust, only 600,000 Jews were numbered among the displaced persons, but over the subsequent decades the number of survivors mushroomed.
