Germany has remembered the victims of National Socialism with a variety of events. But the country's Jewish leaders chose to skip the main government ceremony on Tuesday in protest for what they say is lack of respect.

In this case, Jews are doing what I would be doing if I were a Jew.

Jews have had a bad time in Europe. Israel is taking lots of shots in Europe because of the Gaza War. The Jews in Germany are using this event to highlight a demand for as much sensitivity to the problem as possible.

My personal feeling is that anti-Semitism in Europe could happen very easily...and best that Jews use every occasion to try to keep the problem at bay.

Perhaps they shouldn't, yaknow, go about maiming thousands of innocents if they don't want to take shots.

If they want sensitivity, perhaps they should try showing some themselves.

Zippo. You do know that many U.S. Jews would not be caught dead in Germany (actually they would have to be dead if they were there), nor buy a Volkswagen, nor eat in a German restaurant back in the day when NYC had a German ethnic neighborhood (Yorkville). Thank you for the article. You might be changing?

I have to agree with both:

Swedish city cancels Holocaust event

A northern Swedish city has decided to cancel a planned Holocaust Memorial Day torchlight procession due to the recent IDF offensive in Gaza, it was reported Tuesday...

You are stretching for this one, I believe. Jews anywhere (even Jews reincarnated as church mice) owe nothing to Germany and German Nationals! All debts for hosting them for two-thousand years (from the time of the Roman destruction of the Second Temple) were cancelled due to a 20th century Holocaust. Has Germany ever commented on the Jewish contribution to German culture over the centuries? In the ceremonies, was the word "remorse" used?

What is going on in the Middle East has nothing to do with Germany's attempt to show some concern over THEIR history. You are quite the student of Jewish history I would wonder?

I don't have any problem with Jewish leaders boycotting any ceremony or anything in Germany at all; but they shouldn't have problems with people criticizing their practice of murdering innocent Palestinians.

I do not hate Germans nor do I hate Germany. It is just an object lesson: Kill Jews, and lose them as a friend for the next millenia. No hate; just no love. The operating word is civility.

That is how I feel towards the Palestineans. No hate; no love. They voted with their feet in 1948, and now want "backsies." They want to be part of the world community, as do all Arab nations, yet the Palestineans were left where they are specifically, I believe, to fester hatred towards an Israel that the actual Arab armies could not vanquish. I think this is called spite-work. And the losers were the Palestineans. Losers in more than one way, since they were also brainwashed to the point where many are wasting lives in an inner-city like inner-cities the world over. Poverty and no future. Very sad. They have become the sacrificial lamb for Arab pride, in my opinion.

@Zippo,
I don't trust Jews and I do not like Jews. The Jews cry out about the holocaust but then the commit horrible crimes on the Palestine people. And the Jews caused multiculturalism in Europe which is very unhealthy for European culture in-fact Jews are not native Europeans either.

No one owes the Jews anything,and so be it if the Jews want to snob of the holocaust memorial ceremony, this world does not revolved around the Jews.
