Contention: There was no ethnic cleansing or forced exile of of the Jews during WW2, and the Jews have no right of return to the property that they once inhabited in German occupied areas. Let's just look at these simple facts: 1. Until this day, nobody has been able to produce documented official orders from Adolf Hitler, demanding that the Jews be ethnically cleansed. If Hitler did indeed order a 'Final Solution', where is the supporting documentation? 2. Many point to the plight of the Jewish refugees as if this is evidence that the Jews in German occupied territory were forced into exile. What nonsense! Quite the contrary. The Allies told the Jews to leave German occupied territory, so that they could bomb and invade it. The Jews ran away... the Nazis did not engage in ethnic cleansing, and I challenge anyone to provide solid documentation to demonstrate that there was ethic cleansing. Perhaps the only real 'evidence' that parrots put forward is the reduction in the Jewish population. So what? That isn't proof of a genocide. War is a dangerous time for all. Sanitation is compromised, and food is scarce. Pointing to the reduction in the Jewish population during and after WWII is merely an attempt by pro-Holocaust parrots to clutch at straws. There is also the matter of 'confiscated' Jewish property. The problem here is that pro-Holocaust parrots assume that the Jews did not willingly transfer ownership rights to the Nazis, or that the Nazis bought the land. And if the property truly belonged to the Jews, why couldn't they just approach the Nazis with their Deeds of Ownership, and ask for their property back?! In fact, can anyone produce evidence that any Jews exiled actually had ANY evidence of ownership on them? Since there is no solid documentation, how can you prove that these supposedly 'exiled' Jews actually owned any property or assets in German occupied territory? And finally, also note that by running away, the Jews obviously forfeited their property and homes. This gave the Nazis the right to take them. 3. The Jews didn't fight to retain their 'homeland' in their adopted countries. I mean, after all, they had the backing of the Allies, including America. Obviously they are cowards, and hence didn't deserve the property and land that they owned in German occupied areas. 4. Nazi Germany fought a defensive war (eg. In France and Poland) against numerous military forces which outnumbered it. Obviously this demonstrates that the Jews and their foul Allies were the aggressors, and that the Germans had an inherent right to steal the property and land of the Jews when they engaged in defensive actions. How could the Germans be guilty of aggression? They were a postage sized stamp of a country surrounded by far more numerous (and often larger) opponents, such as France, Russia, Britain, and the Slavs. In fact, there were numerous laws put in place by the Germans, which made land + assets appropriate from Jewish citizens in German occupied territory entirely legal! How can you argue with laws which were imposed by a foreign nation on occupied/colonialized territory? Quite simply, you can't. Obviously foreign nations have legal jurisdication in an alien land populated by native inhabitants. 5. Please note that the annexation of some territory by Germany was actually sanctioned by the League of Nations. This included Austria, Czecheslovakia and the Sudentland. Since the League of Nations allowed Germany to annex this territory, then obviously the annexations were justified, despite the fact that the Czech's were against the annexation of their native land. 6. The Jews in non-German countries could have chosen to co-exist alongside the Nazis. But they refused to be Germanized, and didn't want their land to form a 'German-only' Empire. Those selfish Jews! They deserved everything they got, because they refused to share with the Germans! How dare they didn't give THEIR property to invading immigrants! THE NERVE!
