A little foresight

Reader comment on item: Why the Japanese Internment Still Matters

Submitted by Cindy Goodman (United States), Jan 10, 2005 at 16:21

it's more than sad to see other Jews retroactively supporting Japanese interment. it's insane.

Believe what you want to believe and rationalize till you're blue in the face, but if you support the history of Japanese interment, what do you think "our" government will do if it finds itself at war with Israel?

And don't think they won't have as much popular support when it's our turn.

So when we're coming up with all these great ideas on a final solution to the Islamist problem and looking back fondly at the days when the government was free to round people up and stick them in camps until it decided whether it needed to kill them or not, we might just want to think a little harder.

i can only pray that god didn't give us genocide to teach us how to perform it.
