What peculiar reasoning. There was not yet any Israel in the early 1940s, when our entire extended family was incinerated en toto by the Lithuanians in the local barn, nor apparently did they manage to avail themselves of the mercy of Sweden, so I don't get the point of your post. Who are you justifying? Some current Lithuanian denyers who are trying to implicate and vilify a worthy Israeli man in collusion with the murderers? I don't need to protect Israel, so what's your intention?
