Yes, yes .... Poland must compensate the poor German families immediately. What do you think, that Poland can get away with it all the time. No way. And Poland must return all the German treasures, everything, all the looted gold, the diamonds, the pearls and even the books. All of it and Poland must pay interest on the compensation. What do you thing, all those years the Germans have been without fathers, who's been looking after the children. If it wasn't for the French helping the German orphans after the war, what would have happened to them. All good people of the world should sign a petition immediately and send it to the Tusk fascist regime in Warsaw. Germany must be compensated for all her suffering. Poland is a horrible horrible country and I would be ashamed of even being one of her neighbours. Kick her out of the Common Market. There's no decency in that country whatsoever. There no that's told you!
Your email would be funny if it was not about such
a serious subject. Do you have any knowledge
about WW2 ? You are talking about Poland paying
compensation to Germany??????????
I am sure that as soon as Germany revives 6 million of it's Polish victims Poland will go about paying compensation to Germany.
It is amazing that you cannot see the obvious
when it comes to culpability of the Germans.

This text was a "tongue in cheek" answer to a posting from a moronic idiot called Kraut. Read earlier postings and you will see the context.

No it wasn't. Krautie was no where in sight on that one!

That was referring to a response of John's to one of mine, which was a response to one from Zacharius who may well be Robbie Boy in disguise. and where I thought he (John) was fully into the "swing" of things! Oh well. Sarcasm is not to everyone's taste and the subject matter is very odious I must admit. But whatever, without evil its hard to appreciate good, and so let's move on, the damned Poles will soon wipe out the world with their demented killing, maybe we need to appease them by sending lots of TREASURE to their country, jewels and gold ...

These people are still at war long after it is over. And to think some imbeciles say the Jews are making so much of it..with their 6 million killed and both these countries contributing more to their death than to saving them.
Now they fight over the spoils.
Go to Al Jazeera where they believe the Holocaust is a myth or exaggerated and fight for their attention. They'll say the Jews stole it from them. You can count on that.
The items belong in a Holocaust Museum.
Them Jews are something else.

Leave it to an undercover Jew like Reza to say that any European treasures should go to a Jewish Holocaust Museusm. I can hear it now in their brains: Ka-Ching, Ka-Ching and the $$$$$$$ going through their eyes.

I think Europeans, especially East Europeans should be compensated for what Soviet Jews did to East Europeans.

This Israeli article "Stalin's Jews" tells about the suppressed truth on the virulent anti-Christian/European nature of most Jews in Eastern Europe.

Keep in mind this article is watered down since its mostly for a Jewish audience. What Stalin's Jews did was actually more horrible and widespread then this article states:

In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a "carnival of mass murder," "fantasy of purges", and "essianism of evil." Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history."[sic]

You see Mario, Reza's greatest mistake happened when she said that secret Nazi documents will emerge that will reveal how murderous the Poles were to the Jews.

However, she was looking in the wrong place. Those documents are neither in her handbag, not in the "still" unopened Nazi treasure chest. Where she needs to poke around in are the files of the Checka and NKVD.

My own family suffered death and torment at the hands of the soviet backed Polish Jews that betrayed the country that sheltered them for hundreds of years.

The Jews are very lucky that the Poles are tolerant in the extreme. Now where did I put that axe....

The Germans lost all rights to these valuables decades ago. They should remember the countless Polish works of art and items of cultural significance that they destroyed with the intention of annihilating Poland's cultural identity. These letters, manuscripts, paintings, et al. are the legal and moral property of the Polish nation. Any attempt by the German government to try to retrieve any of them will show the world how quickly today's Germans have forgotten the crimes their nation committed only decades ago.
Yes, exactly...anything to keep you guys from making parallels between this and what I am doing to the Iraqis...I mean for the Iraqis. It is all very good for the economy.

HT,

I totally hear what your saying. But really am I really that out of line for bringing up what Israeli/Jewish newspapers are reporting on Jews literally spitting on Christians?? I really wish that this wasn't true but as someone who is half Jewish and proud of that, I don't think it is good for certain Jews in Israel to practice Anti-Christianism. Lord knows the Jewish people have enough REAL anti-semitic enemies out there then to pick on innocent Christians.

Am I really off base for just reporting that??

God knows I want to see the Jewish people to prosper and have integrity. But by ignoring these unfortunate events, am I really promoting those ends??

For sure ignoring stuff and pretending it'll go away doesn't help. If there is a social problem it is always best to discuss and bring it out into the open.

Maybe I'm just tired at the moment and want to hear some good news rather than bad news.
