Thread Name: BS: Palestine
Subject: RE: BS: Palestine
"On the basis of "scientific and academic evidence" proving that Jews were culturally and genetically degenerate they justified sending six million of them to the gas chambers."

"From Wiki under Nazism
"Nazism advocated the supremacy of an Aryan master race over all other races.1   - Nazis viewed the progress of humanity as depending on the Aryans and believed that it could maintain its dominance only if it retained its purity and instinct for self-preservation.|12j They claimed that Jews were the greatest threat to the Aryan race.'13* They considered Jews a parasitic race that attached itself to various ideologies and movements to secure its self-preservation, such as: capitalism, democracy, the Enlightenment, industrialisation, liberalism, Marxism, parliamentary politics, and trade unionism.'1''* To maintain the purity and strength of the Aryan race, the Nazis sought to exterminate or impose exclusionary segregation upon "degenerate" and "asocial" groups that included: Jews, homosexuals, Romani, blacks, the physically and mentally disabled, Jehovah's Witnesses and political opponents.|15J"

"can be applied to Muslims as a whole, including the Palastinians"

~~~ and who, in your view, would be thus applying it, within the context of this thread, but the Israelis?

If I have confused separate discourses here, then of course I apologise & withdraw that particular accusation. It has all, IMO, got a bit confused ~~ largely due, as I feel bound to say, to your [& no-one elses's that I can see] having insisted on muddying the flow of the thread by dragging Keith/Pakistanis-in-Bradford into the argument where they don't really fit. This is a peculiar King Charles' Head obsession of yours, Jim, which is making the whole argument peculiarly difficult to follow.

I am BTW somewhat exercised, as to how your belittling by inappropriate language & comparisons of the fate & sufferings of 6,000,000 victims of the Nazis, sits with your accusation that, in some way, my education has deprived me of "compassion" ~~ an odd bit of chippy reverse-snobbery, that strikes me as!
