    Yes, in that case, with a man raping my daughter, I will kill him, if it is within my ability. Are you aware of just how many attempts were made on Hitler's life? Do you not get what I am saying, which is that certain things are beyond our control?

    So what? How many elections were held after he took office? He seized absolute power almost immediately. Holding a free election does not make a democracy. It's holding the second, third, and subsequent elections that make a democracy.

    That's actually not true. He was appointed Chancellor by Hindenburg. In 1932 Hitler lost to Hindenburg.

    Anti-Jewish emotions are on the rise again in this country. How much will our Hitler require to begin rounding up any Jew who does not support him? Granted that will not be very many American Jews. Many appear to be self-loathing Israel haters.

    People who have any criticism of the far-right-wing, anti-peace policies of the current Israeli government are not necessarily Jew haters. Netanyahu is from a political party that effectively removes peace from the table. Why should he be supported or endorsed by anyone who wants peace?

    And he did it all without a teleprompter.

    Exactly my point, a tyrant worth assassinating can rise to power through a democracy

    Neither the Nazis nor Hitler were elected democratically. That they were is a myth.
