    Best answer: One of the prerequisites for collecting reparations says that if you were a fetus at the time of the Holocaust, then you qualify. This, of course, goes against the claims of being led to gas chambers immediately upon arrival to that camps, since the mother would need to have survived at least nine months for the person to be born - and we're talking about the last days of the war when exterminations supposedly increased to "dispose of the evidence".

    There's another, less known fact about collecting reparations. If you earn too much money or have too many assets, you are ineligible. This means that if you're a rich survivor, you don't get compensated for your suffering. Too bad - it would be a shame to have suffered so much and made something of yourself afterward only to get cheated in the end.

    Thus, it appears that the reparations aren't for "surviving the Holocaust" - they're a retirement pension given only to those who went through it. It's a "club dividend".

    It should also be noted that reparations are paid even if you didn't "die in a gas chamber". They're called "Holocaust reparations" and yet, the word "Holocaust" is being defined as an all-inclusive event that goes beyond the original definition of "holocaust" where it originated. It's a tailor-made word created solely to draw sympathy and create a distraction from the truth.

  • Why did the USA not retaliate after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor?

    Best answer: If you mean why didn't the US immediately attach the Japanese homeland it was because the US did not have the forces to do that at the time. Remember the US was fighting the Japanese in the Philippines which the Japanese attacked on Dec.7 1941 the same day as Pearl Harbor.

  • Why was there no protest from other countries when Israel started to expand it's borders after it was established in 1948?

    Best answer: Those who lost the land on which they resided, were obviously upset. They had no say so. The Nazi perpetuated the holocaust, but it wasn't they whose land was given away!
    First war 1947-49. Israel calls it the war of independence.
    A historians account. https://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/04/books...

    Next war.
    1967 - the six day war, June 5th - June 10th. Syria, Jordan and Egypt versus Israel.
    Miko Peled's take on the 6 day war is not the U.S./ Israel spun version. His father was the General when Israel was founded in 1948.
    Syria, Jordan, and Egypt wanted there land back.
    The six day war was fought precisely for that reason. U.S. backed Israel. And USSR the Arabs. But a decision was taken not to participate in their proxies local battle, to avoid a direct confrontation between U.S. and USSR.
    Uncle Sammy claimed USS Liberty had been attacked by Egypt and so unlike the USSR, it found a pretext to help Israel defeat the Arabs. Even in 2018, those papers have not been made public! However the tape recording can NOW be heard by all.

    In the bigger scheme of things, the imperialist powers U.S.and Britain (it was their balfour agreement that caused the whole mess, same land promised to both the Jews, and the Arabs), saw Israel as their proxy in the region.

    The U.N. is ignored.

    Best answer: We always knew there was the possibility of war with Japan and the navy even played war games with Japan as the enemy. We also knew they might try to attack Pearl harbor. But we did not know the exact plans nor the methods they would use for such an attack. Once we stopped selling them oil for their war machine the war was inevitable and as long as we wanted to condemn them for their attack on China and not support it we had to stop selling them oil so nothing Roosevelt could have done to Japan short of appeasement and condoning their war of aggression against China, could have kept us out of the war. But the actual plans for the attack were kept secret and they took a Northerly route for the attack so we did not detect their fleet.

    When you read about the ancient Romans especially during the late Republic and early principate, you will see that they were always exchanging daughters with each other. Sulla gave Pompey his daughter for marriage. Then they divorced Then, Pompey took Caesar's daughter for a wife. Caesar took Sulla's grand-daughter for a wife. Caesar earlier married the daughter of Cinna, Marius's co-counsel. Earlier we saw this sort of running around with the Scipio and Gracchi family. Later you see it with the Julio-Claudians. Why is this? Why were they always handing out their daughters to each other? Certainly not all families and people were like this.

    Because if the two antagonist kingdoms merged into only one , Paris woud have been the Capital City , the Court's language would still be French , the Old English idiom, who started to disaggregate because of the French influence, would have completely disappeared.

  • Do the transatlantic cables laid on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in the 19th century by ships like the Great Eastern still work today?

    Best answer: The transatlantic cables today are optical cables, they've replaced the old cables laid by the Great Eastern. Today, ninety-five percent of all telephone and data is still transferred over submarine cables and not via satellite as you may intuitively think.
