Graves desecrated at Commonwealth war cemetery in Israel

So they've completely gotten over the holocaust in Israel? It's never mentioned on TV?

Of course not ever forgetting it but the feeling about it is complicated. You have a right to your guesses but this is a very rare incident in Israel and if the perps aren't caught, we'll really never know.

Where did you read about Jewish graves desecrated?

Come on.... We are talking about Bert here. He even has an aversion to basic algebra given the contributions made to it by Islamic scholars.

Off topic, needless reference to events 80 years ago .

Tut -tut, using the desecration of war grave to spread dislike of Jews .

I thought that UK Labour party has been trying to clamp down on that sort of thing 

Actually, in a way it’s on topic, since virtually every reference to Israel brings an opportunity to show ones anti Semitic colors.  Note some other comments: “Prank by Jewish kids?”- seriously? That’s your 1st guess?

 

Or this joke:

Is it possible that Israeli kids are becoming conditioned (and perhaps traumatised) by the unceasing holocaust narrative and are growing up fearful that all westerners are potential Nazis?

Reworded:

It is quite certain that all Jewish Israelis are already aware (and perhaps very frustrated) by the unceasing defense to have a home, by the throughout history marginalization and scapegoating (holocaust is just more recent and more thorough) fact (not narrative) and have been growing up aware for years that some westerners/easterners/southerners/northerners are potentially against them!

So now you're quoting your own incorrect post. Unless you can come up with something showing Jewish graves were desecrated?

I don't know if any were there or not but ironically at the very same time a Jewish cemetery was vandalized in another part of Israel but that isn't surprising or interesting to people for some reason. 

People should just give it a rest and RIP to the graves as well. Unless the perps are caught nobody can possibly know the motivation. Regardless of the motivation it was obviously very wrong. As was the other simultaneous desecration in Israel at another cemetery. Also supposing the perps is a Jew? So what. That would mean they caught a criminal that happened to be part of the majority demographic of that country. It wouldn't reflect on Israel or Jews as a whole. In case anyone is confused I can assure you that desecrating graves is not a popular supported activity there. It's seen as a serious crime there the same as anywhere.

Yes. I feel you. It's quite bizarre that even a report of a parking ticket in Israel or even involving a diaspora Jew in Nebraska predictably will result in explicit or implicit Israel demonization.

Excuse me, but objective analysis is not demonization. I analyse every culture, including my own, and I don't recognise critical immunity for anyone - especially for those who try to shout it down.

I raised a serious question whether Israeli kids' world-view might be influenced by a kind of holocaust-complex. If anyone is outraged by academic discussion of that question, then does that not go some way to prove the point?

So what's your agenda? People should stop bringing up the holocaust? You have no idea who committed this crime and why they did so I find your focus on your "holocaust complex" theory to be rather nauseating.

My agenda is a better understanding of the world for the sake of world peace. What's yours?

Its a shame that what so many of us refer the sacrifice so many young men gave so we can be free as we are now, is desecrated this way. I do not believe there is any Nazi faction would do this, own conclusions must be drawn to who the perpetrators are

If it's not a new theory, then I apologise to myself - I always try to be original.

 

Well, congratulations on policing the thread and quashing academic debate.
