Alleging that US officers looted a train filled with valuables which were seized from Hungarian Jews by the Nazis during World War ll, approximately 30,000 holocaust survivors filed a class action suit against the United States. Each of the 30,000 survivors are seeking rewards up to $10,000.00 each. Gideon Taylor, vice president of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, claimed that this was not about money, but rather "restituting history." The estimated value of the goods seized were between $50 million to $200 million at the time. Taday that number could be ten times as much.

Jewish survivors of the Holocaust have closed yet another chapter in a unique case, in which not Germany but the US was the side charged. The US was not quick to come clean in the "Hungarian gold train" affair.

After years of litigation, Jewish survivors of the Holocaust and US officials have agreed to settle a suit over gold, silver, art and other valuables stolen by the Nazis and confiscated by the US after World War II.

During a three-year court battle, Holocaust survivors had alleged that US officers looted a train filled with valuables that Nazis had seized from Hungarian Jews. As many as 30,000 survivors filed the class-action suit, each one having sought a financial award of up to $10,000 (7,400). Details of what is believed to be the first suit against the US over property stolen by the Nazis are not yet available.

Proving once again how letigous our society has become, we now have a lawsuit which could add up to hundreds of millions of dollars, on incidents which occurred 60 years ago. With a settlement date of February 18th, it will be interesting to see what the outcome will be. I find it ironic, that although "this isn't about money", how many people have their hand out. People of all nationalities have lost countless amounts of monies during war, and government regime changes.

I am now asking that the US and european countries to return the country it took from my ancestors,.. to us...
We were the first here, and our land was taken and our valubles pillaged, as well as our entire main food source (it was killed off by wasteful europeans and americans). WE WANT RESTITUTION!!!

And of course, it would only be right that the Jews returned all of the palestinians property that they have looted and claimed over the years... as well as the land, that is their birthright...

Isn't it only fair?

Ohhh, and that would mean that the US doesn't exist anymore, so sorry Jews, no bank to claim against... but the new/old owners of america might agree to talk about the claims they have against the jews that came and looted the land and food of the native americans as every other foreign culture did...

where does the insanity end?

not to mention I think the Native Americans better get to work on some new casinos to hire the lawyers for that case... I'm sure if you can pay enough somebody will try to argue to kick us all back out.

Sure does sound good doesn't it? Never happen though, I'm afraid. In all of my years, I've never seen a more self centered group than that of the zionists. They are the first to cry foul, yet they also have ben caught countless times spying on the US. If it weren't for the US, Israel would be a smoldering hole in the ground, yet they continue to hold their hands out. Can't have it both ways, can they? If they can, how come the rest of the world cannot?
