An answer to the commenters: Germany all over again?

in response to reader comment: Why did Jews vote for O

The behavior of the majority of American Jewry resembles that of many German Jews in the 1930s. Those believed that by expressing their loyalty to Vaterland and her leaders they will buy for themselves a dispensation from the wrath of the powers that be. Unfortunately, when they started coming to their senses it was too late, while the "Western democracies" did everything possible and impossible to exacerbate their predicament. Just think of the "Peace for our time" so emphatically delivered by Neville Chamberlain, or the fate of St. Louis sealed by the US President. The ashes of these German Jews were spread all over the Europe, mixed with the ashes of many more Jews and non-Jews of the time.

Is this what they call "Never Again"?
