Having respect for the victims of Hitler.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Vladimir Golstein writes on Al Jazeera 'My grandfather moved to Moscow in the 1920s and that saved his life. His brothers and cousins, who stayed in Kiev, were killed by the Nazis at the notorious Babi Yar massacre of 1941. My father was drafted into the Red Army to fight the Nazis. He was wounded, and this wound, as well as the hard life in the Soviet Union, took his life at the early age of 55.

I just visited his grave two days ago. I wonder what the World War II veterans would think of the indiscriminate use of the term Nazi nowadays. How do they feel, when this word gets applied to Russians who lost 20 million people in their war against them, or Serbians who were one of the few nations which heroically resisted the German occupation? I certainly feel outrage. Thousands of sacred memories worldwide, Russian, Serbian, Polish, Ukrainian and others are violated when the word Nazi is misapplied'.
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: A recent blogger in the Times of Israel managed to publish his view that genocide is acceptable if Israel does it (he used the word 'genocide' and claimed that 'genocide' itself CAN be morally right. Check it out on the grid. It was withdrawn quickly. However the world captured the content before it vanished and so you can read about it in much press worldwide, e.g. Counterpunch, Salon, my grid, Truthdig, many other places).
