Ariel Sharon said that had there been a world leader like Bush in the 30s, the Holocaust could have been prevented:
“It’s impossible to free one’s self from the feeling that if in Europe, in the 1930s, there had similarly been such a leader, it’s possible that Europe would not have been ravaged by World War II and that we, the Jewish nation, would not have paid the terrible price of losing 6 million people,” Sharon told members of Likud’s Knesset faction on Monday.
Well, now, I don’t know about that necessarily. The situation is always different each and every time, and playing “what if” is sort of futile. But Sharon’s point is that more lives are often lost through appeasement than through action.
Sharon was also very careful to make it clear that Israel is not involved in this war.
“We are neither pressing to move it forward, nor do we seek to postpone it. We know that this is a necessary attempt to bring an end to the capability of tyrannical regimes, such as the one in Iraq, to tangibly endanger the entire world.”
Yeah, tell that to the conspiro-freak antisemites who keep trying to claim otherwise, including Pat Buchanan.
