Why is this girl even an issue? What does the actions of this young girl signify?
A girl who's insensitive enough to draw a swastika on her own door has nothing to do with antisemitism being overplayed or not.
But to say that this one girl is an example of that? How exactly? By trying to draw attention to herself? By cynically using this very meaningful symbol?
Do you not see the correlation between this and people who claim rape victims are not to be trusted simply because a few of them lied?
And one more thing- The truth is that the more time passes, the less we are sensitive to the holocaust, as Jews, as people, especially young people. This is why people allow themselves to deny it, this is why people feel it needs to be remembered.
Let's face it, if we had lived 70 years ago, this incident would never have happened, and non of you would be talking about "overplaying the holocaust card".
This girl wasn't raped, she was trying to rape people.
Deny what by the way? The holocaust? Are you playing the holocaust card?
I'm alive now and I see how the lessons of the past are being twisted into weapons by groups such as the Zionists. By groups such as the Zionists #1(or 2?) best friend; the Iranian regime.
No, she lied about being raped. You didn't get the analogy at all, did you?
On 8 March 2007 George Washington University hosted a visit by Carter during which he discussed his book. According to reporter Beth Schwartzapfel, in The Forward, a group of Jewish students led by Robert Fishman, executive director of the campus Hillel, dominated the microphones, preventing other students from asking questions, while asking questions critical of Carter prepared, forwarded, and distributed to them in advance by faculty and students at Emory University as if they were their own questions:
And that was exactly my point. The more time passes, the less respectful we are to these past lessons, as seen in this case.
Are you trying to minimize this case?
Yes, I am. You all seem to try to blow this out of proportion. This is not an indication that claims of antisemitism are being overplayed, this is simply a cynical misuse of the sentiment, and should be considered an isolated event.
Enlighten me then, if you have other information, show me how this is not an isolated event, tell me why we need to take antisemitism less seriously now, because of this one woman.
And tell me then if by the same logic we shouldn't now mandate that all Muslims are to be taken aside at airports and be thoroughly examined simply because some Muslims decided their best idea of sending out a message is kidnapping air planes.
Generalizing works in all directions, and it's never good.
