Jews are not a race
How are Jews not a race? What are the criteria for one to be a race? I would say it is language, Culture, a History.
Are the kurds arabs, or Kurds? I think the Kurds are Kurds. They speak a different languagem, have a different history. Is not a kurd, living in
Europe, not as much a Kurd as one living in Northern Iraq?
Why are Jews, not a race? That is a silly argument. Hebrew is the unique language of the Jewish people. They have an incredibly rich history, culture
that goes back thousands of years, preserved and mentioned by ancient authors in every generation (Read judeophobia by Peter Schafer to see what the
ancient writers from 300 BCE to 700 CE thought of the Jews). How can this be ignored? Is is simply unjustifiable.
but even putting that aside more Russians died than Jews..
Many of which were Jews aswell. Stalin hated Jews as much as Hitler did. But, in anycase, that was the fault of communism, and the political insanity
of bolshevism. Those people although ruthlessly mistreated by the communists, were victims in another way than the Jews were. The gulags are a
horrible thing aswell. Such conditions exist in China, India, and latin America till this day.
Hitler even flattened entire cities killing everyone within..
Is that not "a holocaust?"
Holocaust, specifically means 'a fire offerring'. So, any mass killing can be characterized as a holocaust. Any genocide, can be a holocaust. The
Sheol, what the Nazis did to the Jews, unique, and deserves to be called THE holocaust, because it happened in a modern country, to a civilized
society, in conditions errily consistent with todays. It deserves to be mentioned.
A profoundly immature response to this would be irritation.. And unfortunately, that is what it has provoked. Most people have your attitude. The
holocaust 'irritates them'. Most people have a latent anti-semitism that is expressed through such seemingly innocuous remarks and feelings about
Jewish victimization, the "holocaust card". We can thank Family Guy, and Cleveland Show, Simpsons and American Dad for helping us be so indifferent
to the reality of what happened, and instead say something callous and rash like the Jews get special treatment, or they have to let go of the past
and forget what happened to their grandparents.
That is exactly what a scheming anti-semite would want you to think .The less prudent, and thoughtful you are. The less you think. The smaller the
concept, the easier. And most of all, the more confident you feel about yourself, and your abilities, thanks to this sex culture that balloons the
ego, the less you want to be proven wrong. The less you want to accept that youve embraced a wrong view. Strange as it is, and human, people are so
profoundly stupid when they arent willing to sacrifice their sense of selves to something they can recognize as truth. The most common form of lying,
is lying to ourselves. Pretending we dont understand, or suppressing the feeling, in order to justify our opinion, even if it is based on peripheral
knowledge, and thus reasonably indefensible.
