And That's My Take: (Handing Injustice To Israel On A Silver Platter)

This does not excuse those who chose to actively "cleanse' the planet of anyone deemed undesirable, but it does serve to establish a framework of the carefully contrived barrage of approved thought under which Nazi controlled territories were subjected. The consequences of non-conformity were grave.

Austria and Germany want nothing to do with carrying out prosecutions of alleged war criminals anymore. They gladly allow Israel to try these Jurassic reminders of a painful and deplorable time of conflict and attempted genocide. However, Geiser does not fit the bill. He was a lowly soldier guarding the perimeter fence.

Officially, the United States has revoked Geiser's citizenship and is extraditing him based on his deception under declaration when he entered his adoptive country. This is completely suspect given the timing, however, under almost every circumstance, nobody would denounce the right or motive of the American government to undertake this course of action. But, in this particular case, one would have to question why Big Brother would seek to persecute a man with more than one foot in the grave, with a history of leading an exemplary life contributing to American society, and with so much time elapsing.

There have been many Holocausts throughout mankind's existence, even during the World War Two years. Absolutely every country on the planet has participated in an attempted genocide at one time or another. Why are we continually focused on what happened to the Jews? In fact, given the current set of circumstances in the Middle East, one could easily argue that what Israel is doing to the Palestinians is attempted genocide. History does indeed repeat, despite our promises to the contrary.

We grant hardened repeated criminals more compassion and opportunity for atonement than we are willing to offer this otherwise law abiding immigrant. And speaking of immigrants, does the United States not have more pressing illegal immigration issues of mammoth proportion than to hand such injustice on a silver platter to Israel? There must be a better way to hold this old man accountable for his deception upon entering America almost half a century ago.

And that's my take.
