Re: El Reg reader?
Sorry to disappoint but I'm not anti Jewish, I'm anti propoganda. I was taught that a historical event and the discussion thereof should not be one sided. The majority of the coverage of the Shoah has been, or at least any of it I've seen on "historical" TV and the like. If you don't get both sides of the story then the story is worthless. But then people like you probably think Ramasses II was the Pharaoh of the Exodus (Spoilers: he wasn't).
It's always struck me as ironic but when I was at university I knew a Jewish girl who'd go completely bursar if someone mentioned Hitler, yet failed to realise that but for him, she probably wouldn't have existed, and the person she very nearly got together with certainty wouldn't have. IE me. I don't agree with the holocaust and the policies behind it (hell the Nazi's idolised the Spartans, not that anyone told them or thought to mention that by even 3rd Reich standards they were the biggest bunch of gays and kiddie fiddlers ever to grace the planet outside of modern British football), it was a war crime true enough, but if you are going to harp on about it - at least be honest and employ scrupulously checked sources.
In some ways its a shame people aren't better educated about Jewish history from way back before they left (possibly got kicked out of the area that they'd co-invaded) because it's not as black and white as we've been led to believe, I was at school less than two decades ago, and we were taught the holocaust just appeared out of nowhere, spontaneously, to give the Jews a really bad decade or so. Not the case, the lines of causation go waaaay back to some really peculiar places, hell, nowadays kids probably think Reinhard Heydrich is occasional character on South Park!
I'm not going to waste my time arguing with you, I honestly have other more important things to do, but if you have time look into a chap by the name of Bernadotte (and how the kids he saved were treated by their fellow citizens) and another by the name of Simon bar Kokba (who knows you might learn something).
