The Holocaust Industry: All About Money?

Sixty-five years ago, Auschwitz was liberated by Soviet troops. Peter Lavelle asks his guests what the legacy of the Holocaust is today. Is its memory being abused? Does Israel use Holocaust as a blackmail weapon? Norman Finkelstein and Israel W. Charny discuss the issue in a heated debate.

    israel uses it as a blank check to do what ever they want,
    if you disagree with any Israel policy you are an anti semitic little hitler,
    I'm sure it isn't bad for some regional tourist income either

    Personally, I think the government of Israel is a poor representation of the Jewish faith. I know there are plenty of Jews and non-Jews that would agree. The holocaust is but one in thousands of cases of horrific events perpetrated on HUMANS by HUMANS throughout history that we couldn't forget if we wanted to.
    No group is immune to persecution and it sucks everytime it happens to anyone, including Jewish people.
    Gee, Is this something new? How often does it happen that “the persecuted” become “the persecutors”?
    All the time….. take a hard look at the Israeli Government in this case.

    The memory of the holocaust is being abused. Not by Jews really, but by every group who wants to scream something out to shock people. I'm sorry but killing chickens/performing abortions/palestinians blowing themselves up and living in their own shithole is nothing like the damn holocaust. Not even close.

    Criticize Israel all your want. And America. And every country, just don't apply double standards and act as if Israel is somehow “that much worse” than all the other countries. It's just another country with a shitty minority no one wants (not even the other Arabs), just like our Mexicans/Euro Turks, whatever.

    I'm sorry phunkychic666 didn't get to find out what the Holocaust was about firsthand. She's a worthless, antisemitic Israel-hating cunt.

      You'd like to see phunkychick666 in a concentration camp like the holocaust victims?
      Be sure to wear your gestapo uniform to the execution -you sick fuck.

    I’d agree that the holocaust is used to further people’s personal agendas, wontonly. But the thing that bothers me the most, is onthat while the Jewish were the majority in the situati, what about the Roma? The mentally disabled? The homosexuals? All of these people were persecuted by the Nazis, but only one group gets to bathe in the luxury of being the victim in regards to the holocaust. I’m not trying to short change the Jewish in any regard. (And don’t take ‘bathe in the luxury’ the wrong way either, you know what I mean.) but it’d be nice to see them step back and say ‘hey, what about these people?’ They deserve consideration too.
