I said he employed thinly disguised Nazi propaganda, as described in the bolded sentence. Now go read the Atzmon thread, first post, to see the quotes from him that prompted this conclusion. As for your other questions, why do you ask? Before I consider it, why don't you give your answer to it first?
Ahhh…. I think I understand what you’re saying. I’m sure that I wouldn’t have figured it out by reading the entire 80-page thread.
I don’t agree with your interpretation of other member’s posts. It’s a misrepresentation to say that they are supporting Nazi propaganda, because that isn’t correct at all.
I believe Atzmon is saying that it could be a practical exercise if we were to try and understand why, when the Jew were being opressed in Europe, that so many sided with the opressors instead of with the victims.
I am pretty positive that the members here who would try and explore this question are not necessarily supporting “Nazi propaganda” as you claim. Your charge is baseless, AFAICT.
Maybe WGUDN isn’t such a bad place to start with this type of analysis. I think the fundamental disagreement that most folks have with Dershowitz is that he doesn’t believe that all men are created equal, or in other words, that we all share the same human rights. This concept was also a huge part of the Nazi ideology. No one here has expressed such view, AFAIK.
My experience in discussing Israeli/Palestinian/Jewish/Muslim issues on the interwebs has been that a lot of miscommunication occurs because people don’t first, right up front, admit who are the opressors and who are the opressed. There is no parity between the opressed and the opressor. Ever.
That being said, it is impossible to jump to your conclusion that the folks who would look at the question of why so much of Europe sided with the opressors are somehow supporting Nazi propaganda. A father that teaches his daughter to avoid dangerous situations is not necessarily conceding the point that it will be her own fault if she ever gets raped (on edit) or that she actually deserved it. That’s just silly.
