Either way, why are we talking about the Jews as though they are an official organization rather than a loose affiliation of religious and cultural denominations?
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
This part of Stone's argument finds little disagreement with me. Which is why I focused on the other part.Though I do not care for Stone's brand of political thought, Israel does have a large impact on U.S. foreign policy. There are many in the media and government who are Jewish or have worked for a Jewish lobbying group. I also think the U.S. has treated Iran unfairly. We condemn Iran for attmepting to build nukes, but allow Israel to keep their nukes. As far as I am concerned the U.S. owes Israel nothing. If anything, it should be Britain that is helping Israel out.

Glad to see that he's exposed himself for the looney I've long suspected he was.

One should not act like a miniature Henry David Thoreau because you were not alive at the moment it had happened.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
He hasnt made a decent film since Platoon, get back me when Hollywood produces something good. Unlike the amounts of crap thats been churned out as of late.

HISTORY on the other hand bears studying and remembering...primarily so we can recognize warning signs and avoid similar future events (not just with Jews) and so that we can LEARN without reexperiencing it.
Actually the statement "Jews control the media" is factually evident. Many claims about Jewish control of x industry are astonishingly accurate, at least as it concerns the U.S. It is also natural for people to allow their personal bias to become reflected in their work. When you have common heritage with a people, even if you do not share the exact same beliefs you will feel inclined to help them. Not to mention you are more likely to be offended at comments or arguments that might be considered insulting to your people.So he is one of those people that think Jews control America, or does he thinks they control world events.
As far as world events PNAC (was run by Jews) and George Soros come to mind. Of course, at the same time those examples prove one other thing, that any notion of a Jewish conspiracy is absurd on its face. George Soros devoted a lot of money to beating Bush, whose Administration (specifically in the first term) was dominated by PNAC members including those of Jewish heritage.
It can be a negative thing if it is used to excuse or justify brutality in the present. Look at what's going on with Iran. I have little doubt a war with Iran would be far worse than most are predicting and it will likely be done under the false pretense of preventing another Holocaust. No genocide in history has been used to justify the brutality and abuse that the Holocaust has been used to justify.The fact that the world's Jewish community will NEVER forget and will never allow ANYONE ELSE to forget what happened to them is a GOOD thing. I can't believe anyone would ever dare suggest that keeping the world's focus on what happened during WWII alive is a negative thing.

Now Stone is apologizing. I HATE that...I wish he would have just stuck his chin out, stood his ground, and said yeah bitch, I said it...now what? Instead of lying and saying..."oh...Im sorry...I didnt REALLY mean that..." Yes you did, you assclown...you are sorry you didnt THINK before you engaged your MOUTH...but you still meant it.
Um, no it doesn't.Rubbing it in someones face suggests they were responsible.
As you should. But nobody is asking you to apologize.If someone asked me to apologize for the Holocaust simply because I was Catholic I would refuse.
Yes, if millions of your people get slaughtered, you should do everything you can to make sure that nobody ever, ever forgets it. As the old saying goes, those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it. And might I add, those who do not care about their history as well.Many different people in the world have been persecuted, it is ok to remember the tragedy, but you shouldn't be holding it over the heads of people who were not responsible.
FYI, the Jews are not the only ones trying to make sure nobody ever forgets their loss; they are just the most successful. The Armenians have been vigorously trying to make people understand their horror for almost a century. When a Nazi asked Hitler how it was possible that they could get away with the Holocaust, Hitler answered, "Who remembers the Armenians?" That is the danger of not, as you put it, "rubbing it in everyone's faces" whenever a genocide happens. Not that the Armenians haven't been trying to rub their loss in everyone's faces; if anything, they've been trying harder than the Jews. They just still run into trouble doing so with the denial of the perpetrator (Turkey), unlike the Jews.
History has in fact repeated itself since the Holocaust, in lesser yet still horrible ways - to name just two incidents, in Rwanda and Darfur. But at least every time it has happened, people have seen it for what it is - genocide. And we have Jewish face-rubbing to thank for that.
