Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
...were it not for the point that Jerome just highlighted. I do not oppose a different take and you put good questions.

But again, that first paragraph is incredibly and thoroughly irresponsible. It is suggestive, misleading, to the point that it denies the Holocaust and that denial of the Holocaust should not be frowned upon. That's what the paragraph conveys and it is utterly and completely dangerous. We need to call foul on this, no matter what else is said. And since it is the foundation of his argument, his entire argument becomes moot.

I am open to debate the historical steps that lead to the formation of Israel, even when I believe it is futile, but not when it starts like this.

I figured I'd come back to 30 zeros, no posting privileges.

As far as I've read into this thread (roughly half), it's the most reasonable discussion (least shrieking) I've ever seen on this subject when raised in an online forum.

I'm impressed, and glad. If we can't even talk about situations, what do we have to learn? How can we progress?
