Hi eolith,

'Did you know that Shaggy and Yasser have something else in common besides a disdain for Zionists and the IDF and Israelis in Judea, Samaria and Gaza? Shaggy like Arafat also engages in selective rhetoric depending upon his audience. If you go over to the PA board for today's date, you will find Shaggy saying all sorts of odd things relating and identifying Israelis and Zionists as "Nazis" - Jews being tagged with the Nazi label. I asked him to stop it and he replied that I was the one who brought up the genocide of six million Jews afterall.'

Since you brought up Nazis on PA in your thread, CF replied to you and reminded you of the marking of Palistinians with numbers, like happened with the Jews in Germany during WWII.

I had not heard of that before, and did some research and found, as well as CF's reply with a link, that this was in fact done in the

Here is the chronology and your thread

eolith mentions 'Nazi' in post:

'Since you live in Germany, perhaps you can help me understand something. Is ignorance or sheer hatred or a combination that leads Germans against the Jewish state of Israel in favor of Israel's enemies who are terrorists bent on destroying the Jewish homeland?

How is it that Germans, who themselves today have grandfathers and great grandfathers that committed the genocide of six million Jews in Europe, remain such ardent supporters of the ongoing Arab obsession and purpose to actually finish the mass murder of the Jewish people that the Nazis began? Is it because they the Germans have never gotten over their own murderous hatred of Jews? That they the German have never cast off the very sort of violent bloodlust that led their grandfathers and great grandfathers to such evil acts of inhumanity?

Where is the conscience of the German people now when it comes to reparations for the atrocities against six million Jews, many of whom still cry out from the gas chambers and ovens of Auschwitz? Have the Germans paid one German mark or one Euro toward the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel or in support of the resettlement of Jewish refugees in their homeland since the Holocaust and the mass murder?'

ClickFool mentions the numbering of Palistinians 'Nazi style' by the IDF:

"Tell that to the Palestinians who had identification numbers written on their forearms by the IDF."

I ask Clickfool for a link to this info:

"Really??? Do you have a link to this?"

I then find it for myself plus ClickFool informs me:

"Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz ordered a halt to the practice of Israeli troops writing identification numbers on the foreheads and forearms of Palestinian detainees awaiting interrogation during the army's incursion into the Tulkarm refugee camp on March 9. Sharon's spokesman Ra'anan Gissin acknowledged that numbering prisoners in such a way did not create an attractive media image, conjuring parallels of Nazi tattooing of concentration camp prisoners, however misleading. "If the idea was to convey a message of deterrence, clearly it conflicts with the desire to convey a public relations message," he told Army Radio. "

I then reply in shock:

"So acting like Nazis is 'deterrence' now - Christ, that explains it then.

Israel's 'deterrence' policy, razing houses; collective punishments, etc, are Nazi procedures that the Israeli's think are good as they have had first hand experience of them.


Disgusted - again."

Eolith then goes off into rant mode - as his his want:

"You Jew haters have reached a fevered pitch of hysteria in your Israel bashing now! You think that simply marking with ink that washes off the arms of terrorists being organized for legal interrogation relates in any way shape or form to the Nazi tatoo numbers branded on Jews in the death camps where literally millions of Jews were murdered? Are you serious? Are you out of your minds? You all are absolutely beyond the pale of any sane thought whatsoever."

I won't bother the board with anymore of his dilutional exchanges, suffice to say, if you know him, beware.

Regs, Shaggy
