Comment on The shame of that flag by Jerry Snell https://www.jwire.com.au/the-shame-of-that-flag/#comment-473984 Tue, 21 Jan 2020 01:46:16 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=107948#comment-473984 snell.mima@gmail.com

Referring to the man with the Nazi flag,it is unbelievable that this man is so sadistic that he would put up such an offensive item within sight of a survivor.of the concentration camps. …it,would be bad enough to such a thing in a place without any Jews,but his behavior is just plain evil. I always thought America was the one with most of the crazies in the English speaking world but I guess I was wrong. Australia should never know of such a thing again…….AMEN

Comment on Hi Siri! by Mike https://www.jwire.com.au/hi-siri/#comment-473938 Sun, 19 Jan 2020 19:05:47 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=108006#comment-473938 As if we didn’t realise how out of touch the ECAJ is already, we got confirmation now. Siri gets its answers from Wikipedia, and Rivlin’s page was vandalised. That’s where the error came from. https://twitter.com/yair_rosenberg/status/1218731439476355073?s=21

To say Apple’s engineers played you for a sucker? I think the vandal played you for a sucker, Peter, because you gave a really silly pile-on answer, instead of asking first why this happened. Not surprising, though.

Comment on Governor-General David Hurley to meet President Rivlin and Mahmoud Abbas by Leon Poddebsky https://www.jwire.com.au/governor-general-david-hurley-to-meet-president-rivlin-and-mahmoud-abbas/#comment-473935 Sun, 19 Jan 2020 18:29:53 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=107990#comment-473935 The Peres-Rabin-EU-created Oslo Accords debacle has a been a fig leaf for much of ‘the international community’s” acceptance of the lie of “‘Palestinian’ territories.”
The irony is both glaring and shameful that people attending a Holocaust Remembrance event in Israel are tarnishing themselves by paying homage to the current leader of the ‘Palestinian’ Arab movement whose godfather was Haj Amin el-Husseini, friend of Adolf Hitler, who urged Hitler to commit genocide.
The genocidal impulse remains within Abbas and within his society.

Many have faces that look like a turkeys backsides. Take obese Harvey Weinstein for example only a mother could love that face.

Comment on The West mourns the Jewish dead. But what about the living? by Lynne Newington https://www.jwire.com.au/the-west-mourns-the-jewish-dead-but-what-about-the-living/#comment-473476 Fri, 17 Jan 2020 08:15:27 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=107934#comment-473476 I believe more focus should be on the Polish situation…….especially with the sainthood of John Paul 11 and the whitewashing of the role of the Catholic Church whether you like it or not.

Comment on Shemot and the world around us by Mark Jacobi https://www.jwire.com.au/shemot-and-the-world-around-us/#comment-473411 Thu, 16 Jan 2020 23:41:47 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=107874#comment-473411 @Adrian Jackson that’s factually incorrect. The vast majority of Sugihara’s refugees were Polish or Lithuanian. Arguably the most famous recipients were the students of Mir Yeshiva which is now located in Belarus but was part of the Polish Republic.

Also its subversive to imply that Sugihara’s help was only given because they were ‘German’. Even though Japan was allies with the Nazis it is well known and documented their refusal to confine Jews in concentration camps or kill them despite the great pressure exerted by Nazi Germany.
