Sharon and Hitler share space at Anne Frank house
Jerusalem Post ^ | Jan. 28, 2004 | JPOST.COM STAFF

Posted on 01/28/2004 8:04:28 AM PST by yonif

A photo of PM Ariel Sharon alongside one of Adolf Hitler is currently being exhibited at the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam, reported Army Radio Wednesday.

The photos are presented as part of an exhibition on 'borderline cases' aimed at testing the borders between freedom of expression and discrimination, according to the museum's spokesman.

Viewers are shown a video, in which demonstrators held a poster of Hitler and Sharon in protest over Israel's policies in the Palestinian territories.

They are then asked to vote on whether in the name of fighting racism, freedom of speech may be infringed on.

That cuts it - if I ever get over to Holland, I will be skipping the Anne Frank home. This is a shame, as I would have liked to have seen it.

It is truly disgusting how some people will use the memories of the dead to advance their sick, Socialist, anti-Western agenda.

I have been to the house there and it is remarkable (a few years ago). But I do not understand why this anti-Israel, political and sickening thing is being placed there.

Forget that - I'd go and pull an Ambassador, and toss that crap right in a pond.

"Are there any Jews with any guts left in Holland?"

Nope....they are here in the states protesting "Passions of Christ"!

I dunno. Apparently not.

I have no doubt as to precisely what I would do should something so foul exist within reasonable travelling distance from where I live, and it wouldn't be pretty.

If someone wants to buy me a plane ticket to Holland, I'll rip it to pieces.

Has the whole of Europe gone mad?

I can't believe that anyone would place a photopgraph of Sharon next to that of Hitler. Granted some of Sharon's tactics have been a bit rough - faced with the same problems, I might have ordered much more harsh actions - but he's been forced to act in the face of unrelenting terror unleashed against civilians.

Hitler ordered mass murder against unarmed civilians who possed no threat to the German Army or to German civilians. Indeed, Hitler's orders were stupid, for they caused civilians in the occupied countries to join the partisans.

If Europe in general and Holland in particular hasn't the discrimination to separate Sharon from Hitler, I wonder why we spent all that time and money defending the place from the Soviets.

Can you link me to that post?

I've been called a truth killer and satan worshipper in the last week or so, but I missed that rant.

And it's always for the same morons who wonder where the idea that right wingers are bigots come from. Surprise, they should look in the mirror, cause just like the left, they exist here.

I can't locate an EMail, but they're at

I have to admit my take on this was a bit different, I interprited the article to be presenting the Sharon-Hitler comparison as an example of an abomination that pushes the limits of free speach, in the same way the Bush-Hitler ads might, not as a comparison of Sharon and Hitler. Of course they should be allowed, but roundly condemned.

A friend of mine lived there but moved to Leiden, not too far away from Amsterdam. I can ask him.

Hitler was very successful with the Final Solution in Holland. There are only about 20,000 Jews in the country, far fewer than there are Muslims, and most are areligious.

PLEASE don't bring that Passion discussion over here. This story is upsetting enough without having to turn it into another "those nasty Jews are anti-Christian!" pity party. Sorry to be so blunt.

Then let them put up contrasting pictures of Arabs and Nazis.

That wouldn't exactly be a *contrast*...

Hi all of you,

As my name says I am from Holland and I think it is a discrace that everywhere I walk, I hear comments about Israel en their policy. Since I was young, all that I heard was: "Ahh those poor Palestines". And of course I understand that it is hard for them. But on the otherside, they don't want peace. They want the country Israel for themselves. They want the distruction of Israel, the distruction of the Jews...
That does sound a lot like Hitler to me.

Every country should have the right to defend themselves. Defending, because it is War! The people in Holland and a lot of other countries seem to forget this.
