    Missy May thanks for understanding.
    Reading the post on these threads deprieves us of important details in the communication process.
    If we ever meet you can take your revenge on me as long si it isn't too painful. Shalom

    I can't believe how many people on here perpetuate stereotypes and condemn the innocent.

    "don't buuy anything from germany" so now every german is a nazi are they? You won't buy anything from the Germans, of whom the vast majority were not yet born when the attrocities happened.

    Yet you will buy mass produced stuff from china where human rights don't exist, massive attrocities have been committed, mass genocide, mass infanticide. Political executions, Torture etc all within the last year!

    Should I never ever buy anything american because of thier torture of prisoners in gitmo (and no matter what the results were it is wrong, america cannot take the moral high ground on any matter concernintg POW's if they continue to do this sort of thing) or because of americas failed attempts at empire (most of which have ended in thousands of innocent civillians dead) or because 250ish years ago one of your ancestors probably shot one of mine in the american revolution? Or how about american slavery which is equivalent to mass torture and subjugation.
    Should I judge you on the actions of your ancestors?

    Don't even attempt to put a stake in the moral high ground when all you have to offer is hatred and discrimination!

    BTW many of my friends are German, they are the most lovely people you will ever meet. I go skiing regularly in Austria and you would be hard pushed to find anyone who agrees with what was done nearly 70 years ago, they are extremely hospitable people who have a lot to offer.

    I too come from a military family, both of my grandfathers survived concentraition camps during the 2nd world war, my grandfather on my mothers side because he was a British soldier captured in action, and on my fathers side because he was part of the Belgian resistance and sheltered Jews during the war (was caught doing so). My father was also in the army (artillery) and has seen conflict however non of us are as close minded and full of hatred as some of the people who have expressed oppinions on here!

    I have been to Germany and yes I do know that many are innocent and enlightened.
    My grandfather and mother were originally from the Netherlands.
    My mother escaped with her sisters. Of those who were captured only my grandfather survived.
    Boycotting is my personal choice and I will stand by my decision to do so.
    I need not defend it nor will I any further. Shalom

    DBarabians, you can continue to boycott but if you do you cannot claim any sort of moral high ground.

    Personaly I find you guilty of as much racial hatred as the original Nazi's. That is how the whole problem started in the 2nd world war, it started with boycotting of jewish goods and services, then progressed to isolation and demonisation of the jews (makeing them identify themselves in public) and then on to concentration camps and ethnic cleansing.
    It all started with boycotting of goods and services (AKA discrimination).

    By boycotting them now (nearly 70 years after the entire country has paid for its sins) you essentialy call them all Nazi's.
    You are just as guilty of hate and discrimination as they were!

    I may hate what al-Qaeda did to both the US and the UK, however I am not going to go out and condemn every single Arab man, woman and child as being a terrorist nor am I going to deny the honest people a living. If they (the honest people) make a product that is useful to me then I will buy it.

    I am not saying forget it ever happened for that way leads to history repeating itself, however those mostly responsible have paid with thier lives and the entire nation has paid enormously. Those that now live should not be punshed for the sins of thier fathers.

    Well, as a teenager I spent a long while in Germany, but I would have really rather have spent it in the UK - preferably Ireland. But, you are right, the people are friendly - at least the kids my age at the time were. They don't seem to have a lot of horses, and their approach to horses was too "different". I know its "life beyond horses" here...but, I was just saying why it does not appeal to me...and why I never went back as an adult - and have little use for the country, in general.

    I am not Jewish, but even I take offense at that garbage. How in the world can you compare the Nazis to the Jews? I don't recall the Jews killing 6 million Germans. The Germans committed ethnic genocide for Heaven sakes. You may disagree with Jews that might boycott German products...that is your right and your opinion, but comparing them to Nazis is totally uncalled for, groundless, and quite frankly disgusting...

    Faye your posts lacks understanding and any historical basis.
    To compare jews to the Nazis is antisemitic.
    Boycotting German products has no comparision to racial hatred.
    Over 25 MILLION people were slaughtered in
    WW2 and I do not purchase German products in memory of not only my Grandmother and Uncles that were brutally murdered, but the other 6 million Men Women and children who perished.
    You may choose to purchase anything from anyone.
    I have my reasons and they have nothing to do with the ignorant accussations you posted.
    I will not forget the memory of the innocent people whose only crime was being born a Jew, a Pole, French, Gypsy, or Russian I could go on. Shalom
