    Jews received to date from Germany less than 6% of their property losses. 6 cents on the dollar. And unlike the "Palestinians", they never launched any wars or threatened to throw anybody into the sea or hijacked planes or bombed any pizza restaurants. Totally blameless, unlike the Arabs who chose war rather than the UN 1947 Partition. But if 6% is OK, I'm sure that can be arranged. Want more like 100%? Then the Jews deserve 100% from the Germans, too. Then there's the matter of 6 million murder victims, for whom germany has never paid a pfennig - property losses only. 15,000 Euros for each slave laborer who survived? At least the same restitution to the Jewish people for the 6 million murdered in German death factories comes to 90 billion Euros. Its time Germany paid up, instead of endless foot-dragging, fighting lawsuits in hopes survivors will die off and then claiming "too much time has passed". The debt isn't going away, and use of force may one day become the only option.
