Do we just worry about the Holocaust ? Or the other 65 million people that died in the same time period, sparked by Hitler. WWII is where you only hear of one group of people being hated and/or killed.

Well right now the only thing that matters is BLM. They don't even believe the holocaust happened and they don't know what it's like to have been a Jew in those days.

7:37: And yet that's not true. Most people hear about the Poles (PBS has a great series, "World on Fire" about them), the Russians (20 million), the Roma, and the gays. You're just not paying attention. Weird in an antisemitic way.

What you don't hear Jewish people say is "I am eagerly awaiting my messiah's coming". They don't even offer sacrifices of animals to atone their sins anymore. They ignore and don't even look for signs of the Messiahs return. Being Jewish is a race, not a religion. Someday that will change

^^^^And that is relevant to anything because... ?

Weirder yet 8:03 is that I am Jewish. And as prior stated, they were not the only ones who suffered but often ( NOT ALWAYS ) shown so. Try to read again and maybe give up the anti / facist / racist/ sexist stupid blanket name calling when you can't read simple shit.

Jewish people do not believe their faith. I see none outside, looking to the skies for the signs that signal the coming of their Messiah. I dont even hear them talk about what the world will be like when their Messiah comes. Or how the Messiah will effect Israel. They have no plans on how to save themselves from their sins (they have all broken most of their own, God given 10 commandments). Since they are guilty of breaking them, they deserve judgement and punishment. But have no plan how to put themselves right and avoid the punishment. They dont even discuss heaven or hell. Jewish people seem more interested in material goods, their health, social events, investments - just like any other group of people. I dont see their difference except they are a different race, a different culture. They are not a different religion. They won't even entertain the thought that maybe they missed the coming of the messiah. That a guy that raised people from the dead (including himself) 2,000 years ago might possibly be God? Jewishness is a culture. its not a religion that seek truth of God.

There has never existed a single microbe of physical evidence of any gas chambers in any German work camp controlled by the Third Reich. Not one corpse showed evidence of cyanide gas poisoning. In over twenty countries, it is illegal to question or investigate any aspect of this historical narrative. I ask TKC readers, what "truth" requires the protection of law ?

^^^^And yet at Auschwitz there are gas chambers. Weird. And it's difficult to examine cremated corpses. Weird that you don't know that.

You need to get out more.

The gas chambers were constructed by the Russians. The assistant curator of the Auschwitz museum admitted this in David Coles' 1992 videotaped interview. It takes 3 hours to reduce a human corpse to skeletal remains. The narrative asserts that no less than 10,000 people were gassed, then cremated every 24 hours using four cremation ovens. Do the math. Weird.

No less than means at least. You do the math.
