Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

Unglaublich

Medienkritik draws attention to a story in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung where one Alice Schwarzer compares Abu Ghraib under the Americans to Nazi concentration camps.  She is suitably outraged, and perhaps we all ought to be.  I mean, there is a momumental lack of proportion here, but I just have to marvel at the chutzpah.

It is said that Germany is tired of having the Holocaust held over its head, and I’m sure that’s so for the generation born after the war.  But when a major newspaper allows a certifiable flake to print such nonsense, one cannot help but think that they aren’t ready to move on.  I mean, where were the editors? Where was the sense of human decency to realize that the one nation with absolutely no leg to stand on on this issue should not only not be the last to make such a comment, but should never make such a comment.  Germany shall never, repeat, niemals! have the right to make such a ridiculous and despicable comparison.  Not while six million souls cry out, “We died in such a place.” For shame!
