It’s amazing how they’ve located yet another group to be compensated. Also take note: the aged, decrepit holocaust survivors (who, despite being aged and decrepit, still apparently number in the millions) now have a “union.” The following comes from the JTA:
(JTA) — More than 1,000 people have applied for new compensation money from Germany for labor performed in Amsterdam’s Jewish ghettos during the Holocaust.
The compensation offers a one-time payment of $2,700 to people who lived in three districts of the Dutch capital that served as ghettos for the city’s Jewish community during the German occupation and performed voluntary labor there, the ANP Dutch news agency reported Monday.
The distribution of money for the labor was announced this week by the Dutch Union for Holocaust Survivors, which is known in the Netherlands by its Dutch-language acronym, VBV.
Do you suppose we’ll ever see Israel ordered to pay reparations to all the Palestinians who have been forced to perform “voluntary labor”? The story goes on to inform us that the poor Jews in the ghettos of Amsterdam “often did random chores such as sewing bags to feed their families.” Technically speaking, it wasn’t forced labor, but because the Jews were “coerced to live in the ghettos” they are presently deemed deserving of compensation.
So what about the 1.7 million Palestinians now coerced to live in Gaza? Are they going to be paid $2,700 each? Or what about the hundreds of thousands who were driven off their lands in 1948, or all the ones since who have had family members killed or tortured or who stood helplessly by and watched their homes bulldozed? Do you suppose we’ll ever see any reparations paid to them?
