Reparations demands

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews

Submitted by Gabrielle Crofts (Australia), Jul 14, 2010 at 06:43

Dear Daniel,

I read with amazement the article in which it is exposed the manner of which money is being demanded of the Jews once more , to my way of thinking this reminds me of the pogroms against the Jews by Nazis and Muslims in Balkans and elswhere in Europe. The extortionary veiled threats tactics may have changed in rhetoric but the essence of give us money for doing nothing aka welfare / pay us jizya...by another name handouts, stays the same. What happened to earn it and work for it yourself?.

The African Americans and also the Palestinians to the point have held up the pity me card long enough dont you think....demanded money so far using stand over tactics, and various other means from the USA Government.
What he fails to see is that in fact it was the Middle Eastern Muslims , especially the Ottomans and the Turkish empire caliphate which was responsible for the enslavement and forced deportations of blacks to slave markets , those misfortunate to end up in saudi arabian andmiddle east perished after living horrific lives as human slaves, and in fact it is still to this day that saudi arabia, and in sudan muslism still enforce slavery over the black africans and white slave trade. The europeans contributed especially the english. The point is you do not deserve a handout for beign black and for somethignsomeone else did hundreds of years ago, what about handing Bunratty Castle in County Clare my direct ancestors built-back to my family mate after it was stolen from us during the terror of cromwell, my family still remembers and never forgets or forgives it. The Japanese nev er gave my great uncle William or Bill McNamara from the perengorups a damned dime for being held as a POW he screamed nightmares the rest of his short life after he returned. And what about the reparations from my husband two great uncles who were killed at Gallipolo.

The woe is me, pity us garbage of political correctness and poor me syndrome is well long gone and time theat they get off welfare, get off the drugs and gangs and sort themself out and leave their hand out mentality and create something by getting off their own butts and get a job or self employment and earn it. I am sick and tired of welfare mentality, if you want a better life get off your ass and earn it. Stop the flogging the Jews as a continuation of muhammads hate of the jews for rejecting his self professed career as a allah made me do it. sorry. but thats just the way things are. a fool and his money are easily parted my grandad used to say. If they want so called justice try freeing their black african brothers from current slavery in sudan under muslim rulers....and slave masters in muslims lands.
