I'm not getting this: what the hey did he say that PO'd these people? Do they think that present-day Germans should be held responsible for WWII and the atrocities committed then?

And for those too young to know, Yehudi Menuhin was a legendary violinist.

Doesn't Yehudi mean "Jew" in Arabic?

Not sure--but the Hebrew derivation is from Judah, the name of one of the original 12 Tribes of Israel.

If they do, for the exact same reasons we should hold the Jews of today responsible for the death of Christ.

Idiots.

In a word, yes.

How do you possibly figure that? (There was no sarcasm tag on your statement).

Follow the money. If modern-day Germans are no longer responsible, then there is no longer any legal basis for any further reparations payments from Germany to Israel. See link at Israel's Finance Ministry regarding German reparations

Well, I see your point, but I believe there is a difference. The duly constituted government of Germany at that time stole property and money from the Jews. The descendants of those Jews deserve to be paid back by the state.

This, however, appears to be a matter of generational collective guilt. As another poster noted above, if this logic holds then present-day Jews could be held responsible for Christ's crucifixion.

No sarcasm. Prince Charles professes to be a friend of Islam. I don't know about the queen, that's why I said "if she is".

It's something similar to holding the US government liable for slavery (something the Jesse Jackson crowd would love to do) based on US government profiting from slavery. Modern American taxpayers would balk at paying reparations out of current taxes for something that happened before they were born

I'm not sure I get it either.

It may well be that something serious has been lost in the translation.

Wouldn't be the first time...

I think I repsonded to the wrong post. No sarcasm was intended, I personally have known many Jews who harbor great animosity toward present-day Germans on account of the crimes of their forebears against the Jews. It's not a unanimous view, but neither is it a rare one.

It's an industry. It elicits massive contributions from wealthy jews and. It also elicits guilt from the Germans and others so they can be milked for money. Jesse jackson and his crowd do the same with regards to slavery in this country.

In some ways it is legitimate as long as there are those from the WW II generation and their victims alive. Once these people are gone though I suspect it will all fade away.

I doubt it's what he said, rather the association with the NDP, who are generally considered the inheritors of Nazi legacy. Like speaking at a KKK meeting, it's not just what you say.
