Paying for the Crime

Ok, so Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is officially crazy. Yesterday, he publicly stated that the Holocaust is a myth.

However, check out what he says later on in the same speech:

"If you committed this big crime, then why should the oppressed Palestinian nation pay the price? This is our proposal: if you committed the crime, then give a part of your own land in Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska to them so that the Jews can establish their country."

Hmm. He does have a point. The Germans killed millions of Jews... so as a reparation, why did the Allies give the Jews someone else's land? It would have made more sense for Jews to get a part of Germany. Maybe if that had happened, there woudn't have been so much bloodshed in the Middle East.

Westerners are drawn to the Middle East for oil and as part of their quest for world domination. With or without Israel, there would be serious bloodshed in the Middle East. Britain "owned" Palestine when they created a two-state solution for the area. I'm still unclear why only one state actually emerged in the 40s, but at this point it's not a viable option to simply tell Israelis to leave the area. And although Israelis believe they've created The Jewish State, I think it helps to distinguish between talking about Jews in general and Israelis in particular. Especially since not all Israelis are Jewish and not all Jews are Israelis.

That has always troubled me, as well---the idea that "White" folks were the "criminals", in this instance, yet, through the twisted logic employed by, and, agreed to, by a cadre of White folks, they decide to take away someone else's land (that "someone else" being non-White, of course), as a means of making retribution for their crimes.
Perspective is gained, though, when considering another heinous instance of White crime, the North American institution of slavery, and how, though White America admittedly committed the crime, and, has reaped untold profit from their criminal activities, nevertheless, White America is adamant that no tangible recompense, at least, from their own abundance, shall be forthcoming.
