Why don't read you what I said unless there is a reading comprehension problem? The victims of the Holocaust has nothing to do with time travel. It the abuse of the memorial by Israel that is the problem.
If the memory of the Holocaust is a discourse for all then the crimes against the Palestinians would not be happening and the last people perpetrating it would be the Israelis.
Of course you can argue that the Palestinians are none persons and have less rights than a memory and Israel can do what ever it wants. Just don't expect the rest of us to jump on your bandwagon.
Tell me - what did the six million people (russians, catholics, slavs, romanies, poles, prisoners of war, disabled people, gays, jews, political dissidents etc) killed in the holocaust in WW2 between 1939 and 1944 by the Nazi's do in Gaza to the Palestinians recently?
At the end of the day, the Palestinians did not cause the Holocaust but they are paying the price.

At the end of the day the millions of Jews who died in the Holocaust didn't do anything in Gaza yet their memory is being pushed aside because of it.
They're making a good point masonwatcher. It's not fair.

Who honestly cares? One event about the most overrated genocide cancelled. Where are the events about the murder and torture of 100,000's of Chinese during WW2? How about the thousands of Kurds gassed by Saddam? How about the Iraqis US soldiers murdered?
How about Russians and Chechens who were slaughtered while they were fighting.
So many other atrocious mass murdering events took place in the time we've inhabited this planet. Why does one get all the attention in the world is beyond me.

Times are a changing, that's for sure.
This current wave of anti-Israel sentiment that seems to be sweeping around the world is fascinating indeed.

Did you post just to insult us, or were you intending to make a new point? I think the whole world is shocked about what happened in Gaza. It's offensive to think these women and children died and all you can say is it's a "Blame the jews" game.
I mean, why would you memorialise the horrors of the past when the descendants of the victims are conducting the same up on another people?
