Undoubtedly the Holocaust was a crime against all humanity. The German Nazis targeted Jews as a people for extinction, but then so were the Poles, Gypsies, etc. In fact Hitler is quoted saying every Polish man, woman and child should be eliminated. Of the 4.5 million Poles killed, 3.0 million were Jews and 1.5 million were non-Jews. 26.0 million Russians were killed. The Poles were the most courageous in defending the Jews. Yad Vashem attests to that where Poles represent half the Gentile righteous. Rab Burns has a narrow perspective that does damage to recognizing the need for a shared effort to combat reoccurences of such crimes. This is a world of diversity where all are injured if one person is again subjected to crimes against humanity. The lessons of the Nazi Germany should lessons for all mankind in how other peoples are treated by military and other oppresive regimes whether Christian, Muslim or Jewish.

from the article: The Holocaust isn't just about Jews
When Adolf Hitler first sent Jews to die, Europeans and Americans agreed that it was not their problem. Israel may be about to make the same mistake about Assad's killings in Syria.15:28 05.05.16 | 2 comments
