|Synagogue in German|
-occupied Bydgoszcz. The inscription
reads: "This city is free of Jews"
Judenfrei ("free of Jews") or Judenrein ("clean of Jews") was a Nazi term to designate an area "cleansed" of Jewish presence during The Holocaust.While Judenfrei referred merely to "freeing" an area of all of its Jewish citizens, the term Judenrein (literally "clean of Jews") was also used. This had the stronger connotation that any trace of Jewish blood had been removed as an impurity.Here we are, less than a century after the Nazis' rise and fall, and it seems like the world has totally forgotten what really happened in Nazi Germany and Europe during World War II. International leaders while preaching their superior morality sic are also insisting on making the Middle East judenrein. They don't see the similarity to Nazism in their statements nor in the demands of the Arabs. No doubt there will be some very hysterical people telling me that I've gone "too far" writing so bluntly.

"Let me emphasize at this point the position of the United States of America on the settlements is that we consider them... to be illegitimate," Kerry said after discussions with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.Neither Kerry nor US President Barack Hussein Obama seem to find anything wrong with the fact that the Arabs want the Land judenrein. It's clear that they either don't care or don't know that such policy was a cornerstone of Nazi ideology.
Kerry made the comments in responding to Palestinian frustration over Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank and stressed that "at no time" did the Palestinians agree to accept the settlements as a part of a negotiated peace accord.
And was Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu conned?
Palestinians have warned of a brewing crisis if Israel continues to assert that they had effectively agreed to turn a blind eye to the settlement campaign, in exchange for the progressive release of 104 long-serving inmates.
Kerry dismissed Israeli suggestions there had been an understanding with the Palestinians about settlement expansion and stated "unequivocally" his belief that Abbas was "100 percent committed" to peace talks.
"I want to make it extremely clear that at no time did the Palestinians in any way agree as a matter of going back to the talks, that they somehow condone or accept the settlements," he said.
