One wonders if the German people will ever tire of paying “reparations” to Israel. They have been doing so for the past 65 years–ever since the signing of the Luxembourg Agreement in 1952–and at the rate things are going, it looks like they will go on making absolution for eternity, long after the last “holocaust survivor” has kicked the bucket.
[ Ed. note – Another EU official has dared open his mouth and criticize Israel. I wonder how much longer he will have a job. They generally don’t seem to last too long. ]
The European Union (EU) has lashed out at Israel for pursuing the policy of demolishing and confiscating Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank, calling on the Tel Aviv regime to end its practice.
Wasn’t it the Nazis who supposedly were the world’s foremost book burners? For more on the Amazon book ban, see article here. Readers might also be interested in a commentary by Gilad Atzmon. Suffice to say, freedom of thought, the right to question history, the right to call for a boycott against Israel–all of these freedoms are under attack now.

[ Ed. note – Lately RT has been featuring on its website an ongoing retrospective on the 1917 Russian Revolution. This of course was a momentous event in history, and the way RT has chosen to mark it is kind of creative. With each new day they publish a “news story” on events of a hundred years ago, though the story is written in such a way as to make it seem as if the events are happening in the present.
You run into the phenomenon time and time again: US Jews who favor open borders and unlimited immigration to America while at the same time supporting the apartheid state of Israel–a country which seeks to preserve its own ethno-religious purity even as it denies Palestinians the right of return. For hypocrisy it’s hard to top that.
