    Rich, I agree with David (Vickery) THere is no doubt that Europe and "nations" ( a Western XIX century invention) were/are the result of genocides. But there is the Holocaust and the trials.. And we think that that is NEVER AGAIN to genocides. It is to ask us to much to tell us" wait a minute, it is just not another Jewish genocide, but we can go on creating nations on genocides because there are historical antecedents" THe fact is that after 1945 there is a "never again" that. A pity for the nations created after that: both Israel and the Arabs ( that were not conformed as nations before that because I repeat that is a Western invention). It is unfair but that is the result of our postcolonial world. USA for example entered in Iraq to stop genocides... We will see if Iraq is able to survive as a nation .. Look at Yugoslavia.. now you have three tiny countries But well: no more genocides. That is why the world is indignant with Israel. It is paradoxical: jewish want us to remember constantly the horrors of the holocaust. WEll, yes we remember and we have concluded that there is no justification for doing that. You cannot ask us at the same time to say: hey you have a good arguement there... go ahead with your plans. wasn't that the value and lessons of the Holocaust are of universal value???
