Prince of Wales warning that the world is in danger of “forgetting the lessons of the past”

Though children of children who have felt the terror of some maniac or dictatorial tiran, the present younger generation but also the older one who voted for Mr. Trump seem to have forgotten what happened in Europe from the 1930ies onwards until the disastrous blast of World War II.

Speaking at a fundraiser for a Jewish charity that helps Syrian refugees the Prince of Wales has warned that the world is in danger of “forgetting the lessons of the past” and said it was vital to

“reach across the boundaries of faith and community… particularly at a time when the horrific lessons of the last War seem to be in increasing danger of being forgotten”.

The Prince shared a platform with the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, who criticised the US President for his “totally unacceptable” travel ban on seven mainly Muslim countries.

The Chief Rabbi said:

“President Trump appears to have signed an executive order which seems to discriminate against individuals based totally on their religion or their nationality.

“We as Jews perhaps more than any others know exactly what it is like to be the victims of such discrimination and it is totally unacceptable.”

In his own speech, the Prince did not refer to Mr Trump by name, but said it was “vital to learn lessons from the horrors of the past”.

Clarence House insisted the Prince was merely repeating his long-held views against religious persecution, and was not aiming at Mr Trump.
