1. Sudanese vs. Holocaust Survivors
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.01.12)
Once all the Sudanese have been sent home, there will be plenty of funds available to help Holocaust survivors; once all of the Sudanese have been sent home, there will be plenty of social services available to help these elderly people who are in need of assistance and company. Just think about it. If we cannot do both, is there really any question as to which group gets our attention? That's a no-brainer.
2. Once our corrupt politicians...
Avi ,   Israel   (04.01.12)
are put behind bars, there will be plenty of money for the holocaust survivors... Our corrupt politicians believe deep down inside that the holocaust is really a holohoax, and therefore they do not feel that urgent help is needed...
3. Aid to Holocaust survivers
Harold ,   USA   (04.01.12)
Let the Israeli taxpayers and wealthy jews aid the holocaust surviers.
4. To: No. 3
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.01.12)
Oh, we do. But the social services agencies to which we donate funds seem to have no choice but to siphon off the funds to help economic "refugees" in Israel -- who don't work, by the way -- so much for the "economic" part of the equation. You must be thrilled that the American taxpayers pay for the care and feeding of illegal aliens in the United States, eh? Not to mention $3 billion annually to Pakistan -- the country that gave refuge and safe haven to Osama bin Laden (may his name be cursed throughout eternity). With absolutely no return or benefit to the United States. That must just float your boat, you demented @$$hole! Crawl back under your bridge, troll.

Sudanese??? I guess you want to say the "Ethiopians".

Up to 2007 WJC was bragging on their web site: "As a result of negotiations with the World Jewish Congress the German government has paid more than $50 billion in indemnification for suffering and losses resulting from Nazi persecution. Our negotiations have also resulted in the creation of special funds for Holocaust survivors and Holocaust education from the Austrian Government, German and Austrian industry and many other European nations" ,... It's gone since but I have a copy - Take a note that they don't mention a few Billions received from Swiss Banks ,...,7340,L-3338282,00.html

zivron   (04.02.12)
All committed humanitarian peoples can give more particularly the jewish people outside israel who dont serve in thearmy but thirtypercent have the capacity to give more in addition to post shoah justice structures.
8. Normal Finkelstein is 100% right on the issue
Avi ,   Israel   (04.02.12)
The Jewish organisations which were supposed to channel the money to the survivors are to be blamed.

Please do not assume what you THINK I might want to say. I said exactly what I intended to say. Perhaps you want to educate yourself a little. Actually -- in your case -- a lot.

There's 5 000 Sudanese refugees in Israel, to blame them for the 200 000neglected seniors is more than a stretch ,...

Stop padding the numbers. Not all Holocaust survivors are lonely or needy. The article states 50,000. Did you know that the Sudanese "refugees" in Israel are responsible for gobbling up 75% of Israel's social services capabilities? That's the shame. That's the crime. That Jewish Holocaust survivor elderly should go without while Sudanese so-called "refugees" use up so much of would should rightfully go for the care of Israelis. The Sudanese in Israel constitute bottomless pits when it comes to direct aid and social services. Make no mistake about that.
14. Dear Sarah
Kindly provide us with the source for the data you list. Because a statement like "Sudanese 'refugees' in Israel are responsible for gobbling up 75% of Israel's social services capabilities" is a little hard to believe. If you passed by the Tel Aviv central bus station recently, you would realize that these refugees get absolutely nothing. Not only do they not get any kind of healthcare or services, but the authorities often refuse to process their applications for refugee status – I don't mean approve, but process – so basically there are just stuck. There are some NGO's and pro bono lawyers and doctors who attempt to aid them, but these are few. I'll be the first to admit I'm wrong if you can, in fact, back up your figures, but if you cannot, please stop with this preposterous misinformation. Thanks!

I do not have to provide you with anything. Been to a medical clinic lately? How about a hospital emergency room? Check THOSE out and revert, dear nameless one.
16. Holocaust survivors
William Buncher ,   Toronto, Canada   (04.02.12)
A lot of nasty comments, but there's something everyone missed: where on earth, and from whom, did this figure of "200,000 Holocaust survivors come from?" That is the number most experts give for the entire world. This number includes all elderly Moroccan Jews and all Jews who emigrated from Central Asia--neither of which qualifies to receive funding from the Israeli govt or the Claims Conf. I do not know the real number of Holocaust survivors in Israel, but all (honest) experts put them number at less than a fourth of this absurd 200,000 number.
17. To: No. 14
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.02.12)
I do not have to provide you with anything. Crawl under a rock idiot...
18. what happened?
Mimi   (04.03.12)
what happened to all the Billions that were paid out by Switezrland, Germany, Austria etc. etc.. and the list goes on? Channelled into banks in israel, private accounts by crooked lawyers? the Israeli government? There should have be enough mnoney to keep all the survivors living with dignity. SO? Where is the money?
19. Sarah B. @ 13 ,...
split ,   US   (04.03.12)
Tell me why would they even need a government social services? Considering their retirement pensions they earned in Israel, considering the German holocaust survival handouts and the tens of billions of US dollars the holocaust industry rip off artists collected on their behalf they should afford to live somewhere on Pacific private island or a least on Bora Bora in beachfront condos with butlers and cooks not to spend their miserable sunset days demonising Muslims ,... Some people are getting old with a grace and some, like you bitching and blaming others for their failures.
20. BTW, Sarah ,...
split ,   US   (04.04.12)
Have seen and photographed dozens upon dozens of cemeteries, including Jewish in former Soviet block countries, also a few dozens of Jewish cemeteries around the world, including the one in Dawson (Yukon) Canada demolished by locals (Inuits) shortly after gold rush was over ,... The Jews are gone but the memory of their presence and conduct is still there and wherever they tried to establish themselves or camp for a while failed after the goim suckers moved out ,...
21. This issue comes up every holocaust day
Arlene ,   israel   (04.19.12)
and once its over will be put back on the shelf. Not all receive/received compensation from Germany, and I feel ashamed to say, not all compensation found its way to these people. Today we remember, lets make it everyday.
