be laid on the grave of this "victim of a Zionist complot,designed to turn away attention from the crimes against the Palestinians". That's the tone of some of talkbacks in his paper,passed by the zealous censorship,so watchful of anything that could collide with the Party line.

...and see what Jews are doing in Palestine, and think about the retribution you will bring upon yourselves, for treating the native Palestinians, like the German and European peoples treated the Jews.
5. Look what he said!
Jewish Patriot ,   Galut   (03.17.12)
"He said he was a guard at the Sobibor death camp" So even for this he should have been condemned...
6. Idiot Steve Benassi,pals thanks to Israel live much longer

than Egyptians,Syrians,Turks. Before 1967 they had the lowest life expectancy in the whole arab world. Comparing it with Demjanjuk shows how deprived you are.
7. Steven Benassi you are an ignorant idiot
Emma ,   London   (03.17.12)
1. There is and never has been a sovereign state called Palestine. So Jews cannot be doing anything in ;Palestine' . 2. What exactly are you accusing the Jews of doing in 'Palestine'. Making the people there into slaves, putting them into concentration camps, gassing them, lining them up and shooting them into ditches? I don't think so. If you have corroborated proof that these things are in fact happening then I would be interested to read. Maybe you are so stupid that you are confusing what is happening in Syria with what is really happening in Israel. 3. The 'Palestinians' have grown in number in 70 years from 400,000 to over 4 million, doesn't sound like genocide to me. 4. The biggest health issue in Gaza is obesity not starvation, there are luxury shopping malls, restaurants and villas there and in the West Bank which experiencing economic growth, doesn't sound like the Warsaw Ghetto to me. 5. Arabs in Israel have the same c citizen rights as Jews in employment, health and education, hardly equivalent to the situation of the Jews in Nazi occupied Europe. 6. Either you are totally ignorant of what happened in the Holocaust and think that Auschwitz was a holiday camp or you are totally ignorant of what is really happening in the West Bank and Gaza (as I said, there is no such place as Palestine). I suspect it is a combination of both. 7. To try and claim as you do that the Jews are treating the 'Palestinians' like the Nazis treated the Jews is a form of Holocaust denial. Do me a favour and stop spouting such offensive garbage, get a brain and more importantly read something other than Muslim propaganda.
8. #4 You must read more and learn more
Lou ,   Bucharest   (03.17.12)
but of course, only if you're interested in truth. You compare thingsa that cannot be compared, but, that you know very well... Truth is of little importance for persons such as you.
9. Benassi comes here just to get a reaction.
Devorah   (03.18.12)
Stop playing into his hands by pandering to his sick thrills. Ignore him.
10. Demjanjuk stands before the judge of creation
Galut ia ,   Selah   (03.17.12)
where the deepest sin or innocence is clearly seen ...unlike mans courts.. eternal justice whether innocent or guilty Will be served.
11. move on
are Australians hunting down ordinary Japanese prison camp guards who far exceeded Europeans in terms of cruelty and working prisoners to death? When will this Jewish obsession with revenge end? Its sickening and disgraceful .
12. Benassis brothers tried it again in 1948.Never again
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (03.18.12)
Hard to take isn't it? Keep up the non sequitors in the free Israeli press. We need useful idiots to show up so the truth comes out.
13. Historical Distortions+++

The whole trial was a reaction to all the escaped nazis stangl the treblinka commodant mengele doctor sadistic barbarian barbie many protected r to counter the USSR and the ukraniians were hand picked willing executioners.Demdujik was almost certainly not Ivan the Terrible who was killed late or after W W 2.
14. A truly black day for leftists
Steve from Raleigh   (03.18.12)
Ha'aretz's webpage should go black in remembrance and solidarity.
15. The ruling was not overturned
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.12)
The sentence was. Everyone knows that Demjanjuk was Ivan the Terrible.
16. To: No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.12)
The ersatz "Palestinians" are indigenous to the Hejaz in the Western Arabian desert. They did not set foot in Israel until following the First World War. And the country is called Israel, and G-d smiles upon us for defending what has always been, is now, and will always be our homeland. You, on the other hand, should look in the mirror and wonder about the dreadful retribution due you for having massacred tens of millions of native Americans, driving them from their lands, and herding them onto reservations.
17. It IS Demjanjuk, I was there...
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.12)
I saw him with my own eyes...
18. You people...
like to live in the past in order to draw sympathy and demand monetary compensation... Move on with your lives and enough playing the victim. You have turned into war criminals and can't see it...

Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (03.18.12)
How many Australians were herded into gas chambers? As bad as the Japanese were, they did not try to exterminate you as a people. The ethnic group that has the most to complain about the Japanese are the Chinese. If you want to be taken seriously on this board I suggest you post a name (real or made up) and a location.
20. To #4 Steven Benassi.
Moishe ,   Golutsk   (03.18.12)
I am sorry you lost a friend. I can assure you that he is rotting in Hell together with your other friends.
21. To #11 move over
Moishe ,   Golutsk   (03.18.12)
To answer your question: "When will this Jewish obsession with revenge end?" It will end when scumbags like you and your friend Demjanjuk will no longer exist on this Earth.
22. NO #2 Rest in NO peace, he was DEATH CAMP guard.

ben   (03.18.12)
remembered so such things never happen to us again' Thatv is why it is so important for Israel to deny the Armenian Genocide[ Please google Israel Turkey and the politics of genocide] and have are powerful lobbies work day and night to prevent the US congress from recognizing the Armenian Genocide.

Ed ,   US   (03.18.12)
I find it instructive, that during this whole 25yr+ saga,he couldn`t produce one witness who could verify that he was at some innocent location 43-45. Wherever he was during those years,mass murder was taking place.
25. ยค11,cretinous aussi,japs hadn't built industrial gas chamber
s and owns to dispose of prisoners
26. Not revenge but justice
Emma ,   London   (03.18.12)
According to your logic no-one should ever be punished for wrong doing. Revenge would have been to execute him but we Jews gave him a fair trial unlike the treatment he gave his victims. But you are right we did take our revenge by continuing to survive and to build a successful country that is the best revenge
27. 11
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (03.18.12)
You are not important-you are a coward no-name Arab.You don't deserve an intelligent answer.
28. He was convicted in a German court of law
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (03.18.12)
on legal grounds
29. The post at No. 17 is not mine
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.12)
But most of my father's family died in Treblinka; the rest in other concentration camps. My father, z"l, was the sole survivor of his entire family. The troll's post is obnoxious and offensive. But did we expect anything else?
30. To: No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.12)
Since when did the pursuit of justice turn into "obsession with revenge?" A Mossad team could have taken care of Demjanjuk at any time. But he was brought to trial, wasn't he? As was Eichmann (may both their names be cursed throughout eternity). And when United States special forces summarily executed Osama bin Laden (may his name be cursed throughout eternity), was that an obsession with revenge, too? Or was it justice? Bin Laden was responsible for the deaths of several thousands. Demjanjuk (may both their names be cursed throughout eternity) was responsible for the deaths of several hundred thousands. By sheer numbers, that would make the United States far more bloodthirsty, wouldn't it? And I haven't even addressed the subject of what the United States did to the native Americans.
