at Evian in 1938, Golda was not allowed to speak as world turned its back on Jews

Ambassador Dermer in Skokie tonight explained

From July 6 to 15, 1938, representatives from 32 countries met at the resort town of Evian-les-Bains, France, at the request of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to discuss the issue of Jewish immigration from Nazi Germany. It was the hope of many that these countries could find a way to open their doors to allow more than their usual quotas of immigrants into their countries. insteas, although they commiserated with the plight of the Jews under the Nazis, every country but one refused to allow in more immigrants; the Dominican Republic was the only exception. In the end, the Evian Conference showed Germany that no one wanted the Jews, leading the Nazis to a different solution to the “Jewish question” – extermination.

Golda Meir, who later became  Israel's only female Prime Minister, was the official rep of the pre state Israel at Evian. She was allowed to ATTEND, but not speak. Powerless and voiceless, she sat there as the world turned its back on Europe's Jews. 

As Obama directs his wrath at Israel, and is about to sign this genocidal nuclear deal with the world's worst terrorist state, Israel is not powerless or voiceless.
