Dutch Jews Slam Sale of Debris From Nazi Camps
The Times of Israel ^ | December 11, 2012

Posted on 12/11/2012 10:11:29 PM PST by nickcarraway

The Dutch Central Jewish Board condemned two recent incidents involving the sale by museums of debris from Nazi concentration camps.

On Sunday, the board issued a statement slamming the sale of debris from Camp Vught, which was a transit camp for Jews located in the southern Netherlands.

“It is wholly inappropriate to abuse signs of horror and inhumanity for commercial purposes,” the board said in a statement.

Camp Vught, a national memorial monument and museum, reportedly offered visitors the chance to buy wooden figures prepared from wood recovered from the camp’s barrack 1B. Omroep Brabant, a local television station, reported the figures were sold by volunteers “in order to raise funds to help promote the preservation” of Camp Vught.

Established in late 1942, the camp held 8,684 Jews and also some non-Jewish prisoners, according to Yad Vashem. The Jews were deported from Vught to Westerbork and then to Auschwitz, where they were killed.

Earlier this month, the CJO spoke out against the sale of barbed wire from Camp Amersfoort, another national memorial monument and museum established on what used to be the premises of a Nazi concentration camp.

The management of Camp Amersfoort decided to give away the wire after being criticized for selling it for $12 a piece in its gift shop earlier this month, according to a report by RTV Utrecht, a local television channel. The camp held Dutch resistance fighters and Jewish forced labor prisoners, most of whom did not survive the Holocaust.

Slowly, surely, Barrack HUSSEIN Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy intiaitves are bearing fruit.

They are progressively destroying our international hegemony, providing a boost to brutal, intolernat Islamist regimes and creating instability and danger in the Middle East, as well as elsewhere.

Of course, ALL of this was well telegraphed by their prior long-term associations and political statements.

So it should surprise few people except the average American, who apparently, has little more to conceern him or her than who won the Superbowl, Dancing with the Stars, or some similar survivalist show on TV.

Jews need to just shut up and stop their whining about these types of events, the reason I say this is simple, they support socialists, they vote for socialists, they are socialists in huge numbers.

So when their socialists buds turn against them I say too bad, you sleep with dogs you get fleas, problem is they want to be liked by the very people that sent them to the camps in the first place, socialists.

Not all Jews are socialists, not all those “whining” on this subject are socialists, and more NON-JEWS IN AMERICA voted for the islamo-marxist douche both times, so why don’t you STFU with your stupid whiney BS about Jews.

YOU’RE BORING.

You’re an idiot, if someone says something about a Jewish person doing any they do not like you are in the group of liberals who claim everything against Obama is racist, when we know it isn’t. THe stupid Catholic socialists shouldalso not vote for Obama, but the stupid Jewish socialists were lead to the gas chambers by the same type of socialists they vote for.

I guess if I say something against the Jewish groups calling for gun bans in the US I must be a racist, the truth is that a large segment of Jews do vote for and support socialists, socialists that follow the same type of socialism that Hitler supported, socialism that lead the socialists to take them away so they could steal everything they owned in order to feed the masses.
