It is unfortunate that the Catholic Austrian was ever born and succeeded in ruling the Wiemar Republic.

Germany was and is Great, and the success of the NAZI program is a consequence of technology - just as the Communist Party of China today is using technology to "re-educate" 1,000,000 of its Muslims in the west.

Unfortunately, Human Rights is not at the top of making a Civilization Great; after all, we (USA) were the last ones of abolish Slavery as a major institutions. and replaced it with 100 years of Racism.

Fortunately, or Unfortunately, Israel exists, and was founded, as a Refuge for Jews who were unacceptable elsewhere. And those who claim the Love and Protection of Jews are also Very Busy Christianizing Israel for its Treatment of Palestinians.

It is for these reasons, among others, that the Philosemites are on the Right, and the Antisemites and Centrists are on the Left.

Demographically, in defense of Germany, I direct your attention to the Liberal and Establishment Jews in the USA, as opposed to the Orthodox and Hasidic Jews here. It is a Sociological fact that where there is no antisemitism of significance (as in the USA & Germany before Hitler) Jews Assimilate and become Jews in name only, or merely by religion.

It is a Tragedy that Germany is still atoning for the Holocaust and so unable to defend itself against the rise of Islamism and the push for Sharia from it's Million Muslims who replaced the Jews. Religious Tolerance has its limits, and it was in Germany where the Protestant Reformation occurred. So it would be poetic justice if a Muslim Reformation also took place in Germany, Europe's Greats Power and Civilization.

If the Germans are truly concerned with the unfortunate Victimhood of the Jews the would direct their Political Energies to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Muslims and Palestinians outside Germany who wish to hard Israel as well as German European Civilization.

We are only 72 years after WW II (which ended in 1945), and politically Germany produced Merkel, our President Obama's Best Friend." Furthermore, we produced The Donald as the anti-dote. So one must be patient with Political Dialectics.

Germany has a grounds to be proud of its Civilization, in spite of the Dark Stain of the Austrian Catholic Hitler years. After all, Germany was born out of Prussia, an efficient but Autocratic Kingdom. But Germany absorbed other States under the Brilliant Bismark, before the world had the Model of our American Democracy. And France and Great Britain were adversaries which the "child' of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation could not emulate.
