    The gypsies, who are a people not a religion, had a higher percentage of their people killed by the Nazis. What is this de-ification of followers of Judaism. The Russians lost 40million.... no one denies that followers of Judaism suffered at the hands of the Nazis along with the gypsies, homosexuals, mentally disabled and millions upon millions of others... the Nazis considered the Poles to be inferior and they lost far more in this horrible war. This idea that there is something special about Jewish losses has not only crippled the religion but it has sown the seeds of destruction for Israel. The Palestinians had nothing to do with that war and yet they have suffered for it in the imposition of Israel on their land. If anyone is innocent it is the indigenous Palestinians. But, Israel does exist like any other coloniser.... the world accepts that... but flying the holocaust flag while committing similar war crimes and human rights abuses against the Palestinians no longer works.... the world demands justice and that means freedom for Palestine. It really is time for Jews to get over their 'bad childhood' and grow up.
