    re: If you lived in 1938 Germany...[W:104]

    I would actively resist it, but it would only take a couple of beatings or arrests to convince me to leave the country. After I was safe in another country, I would actively call for boycotts, sanctions, interventions, and allowing Jewish immigrants into other countries (esp the USA) and make donations to immigrant assistance. I think/hope.

    Your argument is that Muslims are inherently violent and terroristic due to their religion.

    This is hate speech by any measure.

    Wrong.
    My links were significantly good enough to prove my point even before my final 4:40 edit and your 4:42 post.
    I cleared those phrases because I had used them for YEARS here with Extensive Documentation.

    I understand that English is very difficult for you, but I see that you are trying to walk back your argument from "Muslims are inherently violent"....to...."The Muslim RELIGION is inherently violent".

    I'm not walking back anything.
    I will go simply with "inherently" if you like!
    Try and box me in... Beat you any way you want.

    and let me Reiterate from the last page:

    I repeat: Many people die EVERY Day in the NAME of Islam.
    And are Cleansed/Persecuted on that same basis by not just individuals but by Muslim country Governments and Mainstream clergy therein.


    Got it?

    No you are still dancing around, playing on the edge.

    Just simply say what you admitted was your argument but could not actually state:

    "Muslims are inherently violent and terroristic because of their religion."

I'd have probably been brainwashed and gone along with the Nazis in my youth, but would have rebelled in my maturity. I think there are many of us that would have been exactly the same.

The extermination of the Jews didn't begin until 1941, and the Final Solution wasn't implemented until 1942. I really don't see the problem of extending my answer to cover the entirety of the Third Reich.

    Sheesh.

    If you think my explaining to you that he referenced 1938 because it was the subject of the thread was giving you crap, you haven't seen me give crap.

    I purposely did not include "Other" as an option this time, as that is a cop-out for this question. If you cannot answer given the range of options above, you're participation is not really necessary.

    ETA: Please note that the question is intended to be from a non-Jewish perspective.
    It's really hard to say what I would have done. It would depend on my situation too. If I was single, I'd be more likely to oppose it vocally than if I had a family to worry about. I'd probably be more likely to oppose it more if I had close friends who were Jewish as well. As it is with me and my wife, I'd probably have passively resisted.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    My goodness -- To be made a moderator despite being such a newbie. I'm impressed.

    While you were at mod school,did they teach you anything about derailing threads, by any chance, though? The topic of this thread is about what people would do were they in Nazi Germany in 1938.

    I didn't notice anything in there asking people to come up with the most stupid comparisons they could possibly create in order to make it about present day Muslims, instead.
