      Gee, I wonder whether Germans marked May 8th as their “Nakba Day”?
      At that date in 1945, 12 Million Germans were kicked out of East and West Prussia, Sudetenland and parts of Transylvania. Another 2 million Germans were murdered.

      This deserves an article by 972 magazine?

        The Germans, being liberal democrats not Feiglinist “popular” democrats, don’t run around shouting that they are the nation state of the German people and therefore arrogating the right to settle their people in western Poland. A few right wing cranks on the fringes probably shout about this but no one takes them seriously. Nor do they treat refugees as “infiltrators,” with blunt racism, and coldly deny them human rights. Nor were they at the end of the conflict in 1945 left with no country at all and foreigners permanently occupying their land and trying to erase them. The Americans and the British and the French left in due course and did not transfer in a single civilian. The Russians behaved otherwise but that didn’t end well for the Russians.

          Exactly, Ben. But the fakestinyans have “special” rights that the Germans don’t have.

      As usual, our dear leftists forget the million of Jews expelled from the Arab countries in the 50s and the 60s.. Our great rabbis say that the worse enemies of the Jewish people are inside it.
