Dear OhSojourner,

What the Nazis did was NEVER a good thing.

You see, for the "six million Jews" that were "killed" in the "holocaust"
(read my earlier post regarding the real meaning of that word), there were
not only a 4% INCREASE in the Indo-European Jewish population according to
Jewish sources, but 40 million CHRISTIANS were also BRUTALLY MURDERED whilst
DEFENDING THEIR OWN HOMES.  That's a ratio of 6.66 Christians per Jew

You once again misunderstand Mr. Knight's posts because of your crass
overemotionalism.  Please, calm down, settle yourself, and read what Mr.
Knight and I have had to say in a rational manner to you and others.
