Amazon, how can you remain indifferent in the face of atrocities?

Opinion: An internal company email shows how some Amazon execs try to frame last week’s massacre as a two-side issue, lumping up innocent victims together with their Hamas murderers

A few years back when I visited Majdanek – the former Nazi death camp near Lublin, Poland, I stood at the entrance to the gas chambers, which are still standing and asked myself: How did the people of Lublin, whose windows overlook the horror, go about their daily business while being so close to 200,000 Jews who were gassed and tortured there for three years?

True, they were under German occupation but still; how could human beings drink their cups of tea, eat their meals, chitchat and joke while hundreds of thousands were suffering indescribable fates? My mother—a Majdanek and Auschwitz survivor—said that compared to Majdanek, Auschwitz was a resort.

When I saw the post by a senior executive at Amazon talking about the heartbreak of the team—the so-called "Amazonians" or "citizens of the world"—with the Israel-Hamas conflict, I was reminded of Majdanek's neighbors, who went about their lives while hundreds of thousands of innocents were tortured and murdered. Majdanek still conserves heaps of their ashes.

How do the "citizens of the world" dare to call last week's massacre "a conflict"? How dare you lump up innocent victims together with their murderers: the Hamas animals who slaughtered 40 babies; who killed, raped and tortured over 1,000 innocent civilians, including children, women, infants and elderly people, among them Holocaust survivors. All the while women in Gaza were giving out candies to celebrate the massacre.
Shame on you Amazonians. I am just sorry that I ever bought anything from Amazon. True, your service is great. But your humanity, compassion and justice are markedly lacking.
