    Responses to Lou Medel's points. "1. Jews and Arabs are semitic people. Anti-semitism, the cry of the persecuted Jew is also suffered by Arabs. From where I stand, the Arab is more maligned." Very true. Arabs have been more malighed by other Arabs thoughout their history. They don't know how to lead their people without oppression and brutality. (See Jacob Blue's examples above.) "2. The holocaust was suffered by tens of millions of people of which the Jews were a fraction. Non-Jews do not invoke the holocaust on a daily basis." The reason is because the non-jews were killed through wars and not singled out for extermination. What about the Armenians, the Kosovons? They are also examples of people who never forget the tragedies that happened to them. Nor do we (in the US) forget the civil war and WW2, which is why we have Veterans Day. "3. Anyone questioning the holocaust should not be put in prison or fined. To question history and its inaccuracies is a common human trait. The holocaust was a tragedy but it is overused and I suspect, exaggerated." The people who question the Holocaust are often associated with hate groups, and some of them do it as a verbal war even if they believe to be true. I haven't heard someone who questions the Holocaust and didn't at the same time preach hatred toward Jews. Therefore, the "Holocaust critics" are like the Muslim Madrasas that preach hate. So just as there is no room in Western countries for Islamic clerics who teach and preach hate, the same goes for Holocaust denial. (Not to mention that those who deny the Holocaust want it to happen, as is reflected through Iran's retarded president.)
