Well, how many major Hollywood films have taken up the Palestinean side of the issue? Name one!
I am not denying the Holocaust. It happened.
But why does the Jews have to keeping bring out the Holocaust memorials and museums when EVERONE suffered in WWII. Are they so special? 20 to 30 Million Russian killed. Millions killed by the Japanese. The Rape of Nanking, the medical experiments done by the Japanese to the Chinese.
Or the millions killed by the Kmer Rouge in Cambodia. Where are all the memorials in North America to those horrific acts?
How about the genocide of the Armenians in WWI by the Turks? Where are all the films about it made by Hollywood?
Am I the first or the only one to say the the state of Israel was built because people sympathized with the suffering of the Jews throughout history? No, many other people besides me have said the same thing. The Jews have been using the victimization argument to support the State of Israel for decades. Even they themselves say they are surrounded by enemies. That however is a big lie because they have the most pwerful military in the Middle East. They are the bullies, not the other countries.
You call me ignorant and stupid. Read this article. He explains it better than me.
Read "Western Guilt" And "Anti-Arab"
^^^Such a gross post.
The armenians have a massive lobby in the US. In fact one of the heros of Nagorno Karabakh war is Monte Malkonian, an american.
Steven Speilberg is apparently looking at doing a film on the genocide.
Another film called The Armenian Genocide was done.
Also The Armenians: A Story of Survival.
Syl Stallone also looked at doing an adaptation of The Forty Days of Musa Dagh which is about the genocide.

Not quite sure what you are even referring to in your reference to russia. WW2? The purges?
A large majority were killed by russians themselves. Not to mention the lack of openess to tell the stories under the iron curtain.
Cambodian American Heritage Museum and Killing Fields Memorial. Chicago, IL, USA
Erna and Authur Salm Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Grove (dedicated to all acts) - Sonoma State University
As an example.
Not surprisingly you are all over the map with your attempts to compare.
What makes the holocaust significant was not only the numbers but the extent that was taken both system-wise and technology-wise to exterminate a group of people.
Not to mention the process taken to get to the final solution from Hitlers diatribes regarding old tried and true anti-semitic rants, to the enactment of laws that segregated jews of german citizenship from other citizens (marriage laws etc), to the expulsion and transfers, to the use as forced labour, to imprisonment and starvation, to ultimately the elimination through efficient death factories.
Nazis did not want to enslave the jews they wanted to exterminate them. Period.
Also the full horrors of the holocaust came at a time when pretty much the entire planets focus was on one region and one subject: the defeat of nazi germany, in europe.
I say this as someone who has been to Auchwitz, Bosnia, Cambodia, Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh, Uganda, Borneo and visited the various "monuments" to these various atrocities.
