commentary, philosophy, and outright rants

Much as the Jewish community would like the world to believe otherwise, Jewish people were not the only persons targeted by the Nazi regime. Just as Jews were required to wear a yellow Star of David, so homosexuals – another outcast group – were required to wear pink triangles. (This is the origin of the pink triangle used in the modern gay rights movement.)

According to the Jerusalem Post, “A Jewish invocation will be used by ultra Orthodox rabbis in Jerusalem to curse the organizers of the Gay Pride March and the police who protect them.” A quote in the story says that “If done by a competent, God-fearing rabbinic court like the Edah Haredit, the people who are cursed do not live out the year.”

The Edah Haredit and Adolf Hitler: not so different after all, in the long run.

  1. Doesn’t actual genocide strike you as slightly worse than mumbling curses? There’s a huge difference between hateful ideology and hateful deeds.

  2. Many Jews did not leave Germany even after Kristallnacht. After all, it was just words and some broken windows.
