The tragedy is that even a lot of left wing Jews really don't mean never again.

The problem with ideological left liberalism is that it is a solvent thar destroys all organic connections of family, faith, ethnicity in favor of the will to power in the name of a genericized "humanity" shorn of all that is human except for certain useful racial or gender categories. But Israelis? Or European Jews? Why they're all capitalists or Kulaks or Racists or...well Krauthammer explains.

Amid the ritual expressions of regret and the pledges of “never again” on Tuesday’s 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a bitter irony was noted: Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe. With a vengeance.
It has become routine. If the kosher-grocery massacre in Paris hadn’t happened in conjunction with Charlie Hebdo, how much worldwide notice would it have received? As little as did the murder of a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse. As little as did the terror attack that killed four at the Jewish Museum in Brussels.
And therefore in the New Heaven and New Earth they are expendable.
