Yes folks, I wrote that maybe there weren’t as many Jews killed during the Holocaust as is now claimed, and whether this is true or not is really irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
The fact of the matter is that it happened and that’s what is important to remember.
But, let us not get carried away with this Nazi/Holocaust/Genocide thing and start throwing around accusations that are not only inflammatory, but outright lies.
This is what I mean.
I read this article today by some guy in the the Gaza strip and he had THIS to say: What the Israelis are doing now is exactly the same as what the Nazis did to the Jews or maybe even worse than the Nazis.
In answer to this I can only say one thing……….. STOP IT!
Anybody that makes a claim like that only shows their total ignorance and lack of any historical perspective on what actually happened there.
Listen to me!
There is plenty of blame to go around in the Middle East and I am not going to start listing this and that and everything in between because we would be here all day.
Suffice it to say that things are bad enough between Arabs and Jews without throwing in totally irresponsible statements about Nazi’s and the Holocaust.
There is NO comparison between what the Jews had done to them and what the Palestinians are now claiming to be the facts in their fight with the State of Israel.
To suggest this is to display an alarming lack of knowledge or even blindness to world events and only serves to flame the rhetoric and harden positions.
We have to remember that one of the reasons Israel now exists is because of world wide guilt over what happened to them under the Nazi’s and unless the situation in the Middle East is looked at with a certain degree of clearness and logic instead of inflammatory statements a peaceful solution will be even further off!
This article was only out for a few minutes when I got this letter from Benny B.
Allan, a few days ago you were all hyped up about how the Jews exaggerated the number killed during the Holocaust and today you’re defending them!
Who’s side are you on?
Benny……….. Benny, Benny Benny!
Haven’t you figured out yet that I’m not on any side!
I’m just trying to keep things into “Perspective” here!
