For Yom HaShoah: "The Holocaust Without Jews"

Yom HaShoah/Israeli Holocaust Day and International Holocaust Day increasingly run counter to one another.

"Last November in Sweden, the organizers of a Kristallnacht commemoration chose not to invite Jews lest the universal lessons of the Holocaust be marred by the official participation of the people who were its primary victims. Yet the left-wing activists who organized the rally had no problem with Palestinian flags or posters equating the Star of David to a swastika, both of which make annual appearances at an event ostensibly called to remember the genocide of Jewish people."

I would compare this to having a large group of total strangers "invade" a yahrzeit (anniversary of death) observance for my mother and demand that I speak about every mother except my own.
