Following are some excerpts of Holocaust? No, it can’t happen here…, from Rabbi Lazer Brody’s, Lazer Beams blog – Reflections of Emuna with Rabbi Lazer Brody , which deals on the gathering clouds of American antisemitism.
Famous last words of German Jews prior to Kristallnacht: “No, it can’t happen here…”

Without emuna, people are blind as bats. Adding arrogance to blindness renders a person completely daft.
Olmert’s own party comrade and government minister, former IDF Commander-in-Chief Mofaz, is now crying to Condi that UN Resolution 1701 is meaningless and that Hizbolla controls South Lebanon while the impotent UN Force drinks expresso and plays backgammon. Duh…

Reflections of emuna with Rabbi Lazer Brody
The Hebrew month of Nissan in general, and the week of Passover in particular, mark the season of miracles. For a person with faith, miracles are as natural as the laws of nature, since faith transcends any natural laws, putting one in a realm where miracles are reality.
The Yerushalmi Talmud (tractate Taanis, 17 a-b) tells about Rabbi Ada bar Ahava (Achva), a righteous scholar. If there wasn’t enough rain, all he would have to do is remove a shoe, and dark clouds would suddenly appear on the horizon. The Talmud continues to tell us exactly how Rabbi Ada acquired the power to perform miracles, listing 8 main criteria. The first 4 criteria apply to those who learn Torah, but the second 4 apply to each and every one of us.
