Reader comment on item: Op Eds Now More Central in War than Bullets
in response to reader comment: trans-parere's flawed Jewish history

Submitted by Trans-parere (Canada), Nov 1, 2006 at 01:00

It is unfair to say that at a time of world inflation and record unemployment and the fact that most nations were gearing up for war or were in a prewar state, or had their own fears of NAZI occupation; that they did not open their doors to mass Jewish immigration was because they had an underlying hatred for Jews and enjoyed the persecutions by the NAZI. And yes to say so is simplistic racialism. It suggest that others should have sacrificed their food, their employment, their government, their land, their blood to Jewish refugees as a right to be claimed by Jews. If NAZI intention had been specific to Jewish extermination I would be more willing to accept a world quilt but, Nazi Germany was enslaving and murdering Jews while invading and suppressing and oppressing other nations and cultures. And Countries other than those in Europe were also developing an armed response to NAZI expansionism at no little cost.
I leave the last word on this subject to you.
