excuse me for asking, but what is it about the holocaust that makes some people think it justifies everything? yes, millions of jews were sought, killed during ww2. there is no doubt about that. but, for example, how many other people were killed during the same period? how many black africans were killed before, during and after colonialism, and how many more are dying now, partly because of their countries' corrupt, ruthless leaders, partly because of messed up foreign policies by western countries? i think israelis and their supporters had better wake up and realise that most people can't see the difference between inflicting a gross wrong because one was inflicted on you, and just plain doing wrong. wrong is wrong, even if the one who perpetrates it has suffered before. supposedly moral people should not act in reprehensible ways, then complain when it is pointed out that their suffering in no way justifies their inflicting worse levels of suffering on another people.
