Re: Net closes on alleged Nazi death camp guardMar 19th, 2009
Juan, youe statement:There are some realities that should be obvious as well. Among them is the fact that Demjanjuk didn't ask for a job guarding Jews in a camp. He was doing the job he was ordered to do. I'm sure he was guilty of prodding people along like he was ordered to do. He was no doubt also guilty of pointing his rifle at people too. He was a guard for God's sake! He did what guards do. Maybe you'd do better calling attention to a more recent, smaller, holocaust. Start with Deir Yassin.
Juan - He was 22 years old . At 22 I knew what was right and wrong - and from all the records that I've read regarding the 2nd WW, htere wre many as young - and younger - who knew what was right or wrong. He didn't do what was right - he did what was convenient - just like so many others did who turned a blind eye when their Jewish neighbours 'disappeared', And stop with the 'deir yassin' reference because with every Deir Yassein, there is an equal opposite.
Here, we're talking John Demjanyuk - second world war. If you want to talk Deir Yassin? Start a new thread. If only for the fact that Jonno probably thought of the Roma the same way he thought of Zhids. Dir Yassin? That was not the same. Hell, wouldn't it be nice if world politics were as simple as the simple 1+2=3 math class that I had in elementary school? Right.
