    The new generation of germans has a large proportion of descendants of ethnically cleansed Silesian (now poland0 and Sudeten germans. The official figures of those germans expelled from Silesia and Czech Sudeten is between 12 and 16 million Germans. that would translate to at leats 24 to 32 million Germans or 24 % of the total current population. At the time of 1945-48 ethnic cleansing of germans the hostile atmosphere forced the jewish survivores to move to Israel. In a sense we bothe were ethnically cleansed from Central Europe. The germans have no illussion of taking back Silesia and Sudeten. So they understand that Israeli descendants will not leave Israel to go back to central Europe. Secondly if the idea of Ahmedinejad and Arab Islamofascist is to move Jews back to Central Europe would include Germany.The persecne and participation of Jews in Germany before 1939 was not working well.Germans wouldn't want to revert back as it can reinvigorate the fledging neo Nazis.We stay put!

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
