    Seventy years ago, one-third of the world Jewish population were shot or gassed, and in some cases their ashes were used as agricultural fertilizer, for no other reason than that they were Jews. I cannot begrudge the Jews their desire to see as much justice done as possible on the perpetrators, just because the surviving Jews are often prosperous.

    It is worth remembering that an additional five million non-Jews were also killed in the camp, and that the Nazis starved millions more Russians in the parts of European Russia they occupied. The crimes of the Nazis reached beyond the Jewish community alone.

    Not that that matters. Even had the Nazis been scrupulous about committing their atrocities only against Jews, it would still have been a crime against humanity for which non-Jews have considerable interest in seeing justice done.

    The reason that I no longer have any good feelings toward Jews is that they continue to play the victim even though they are probably the wealthiest, independent and free people in the world today.

    Their unflagging revenge against the people who did them harm more than a half century ago says to me that their motivation is suspect. What is gained by punishing a 98 year old.

    "Rounding up old Nazis and holding them accountable for their part in the evil of the Holocaust "

    And there lies the problem. Most of the people they are now targeting had minor roles... hence why they were harder to identify. Most are 90 years old or more. Most of those who could or should be witnesses in their trials are gone now. A recent story in another publication cited that the US has pulled the citizenships of dozens of suspected former Nazi's, but the nations that would try them would not take these men, largely because the cases are no longer prosecutable - because of lack of living witnesses.

    THe war, these crimes, are now over 70 years old. No one has forgotten the prices many thousands of innocents paid. But it is time to close this chapter... and have faith in Gods judgement. These men, if guilty, will not get away with anything.... its time to heal, and move on.
