Nazi war crimes suspect arrested in Hungary

An elderly man suspected of Nazi war crimes has been arrested in Hungary, prosecutors said Wednesday, after a worldwide Jewish rights organization discovered him living in Budapest.

    Well, that just about accounts for all the nazi war criminals that escaped prosecution. All that's left are the ones who hid inside of NASA, Chase Manhattan, and the Vatican.

    Just for sh/ts and giggles, research the terrorist activities fmr. Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was involved in as a young man in the 1940s.
    And if you feel you can stomach it, ggogle "Operation Paperclip", recently declassified and available for your Freedom of Information mind...if there's any room left. This government program smuggled more ardent nazi supporters out of Germany than the Vatican did!

    I wonder what the Jews will do when all the Nazi's die out, who will blame and hunt then? A new generation of so-called Nazi's I bet.

      What's ironic is that Josef Mengele was never 'hunted down' and continued his mind-control and torture experiments in the U.S. and abroad until his death, as with all of the 'Project Paperclip' scientists and intelligence officers we made citizens of post V-E Day. Werner Von Braun is a classic example (Head of NASA) and Herman Oberth and Reinhard Gehlen (helped form the CIA).The Simon Weisenthal Center never went after these guys, but go after 90 year old men? They ARE the Cursed!

      That is a ridiculous and ignorant statement. Blame? He shouldn't be charged because he fled for so many years? And I don't see them as blaming anyone ever, they seem to be doing quite successful here.

    This is just a little light appeasement. Nothing more. Nothing to see here. Move along. Hungary managed to stave off the Nazis and save their Jews for several years. But as Adolph got crazier and crazier he also got more demanding. In fact Adolph promised to send Hungary back to the Stone Age if they wouldn't hand over their Jews. So they did. They handed over their Jews to save themselves. Hungary appeased Hitler.

    This is just a bit of light appeasement. Nothing more. Hungary has been forced to deal with much worse. Hungary managed to stave off Adolph Hitler's demand to hand over their Jews for several years. Finally promising to turn the Hungarian people into smithereens. Unless they handed over their Jews. Hungary still refused to help directly. But did allow Hitler to send in Eichmann and his consorts and minions and recruit helpers among the Hungarian people. Almost everybody refused. Even when threatened with death. None wanted innocent Jewish blood on their hands through eternity.

    My last post was supposed to be response to banasy. Again trying to point out that I had ben responding to the post earlier that claimed 20 casualties. That is false. Many more people die by the hands of israeli terrorists every day, but our pro zio nist government still suports them. I feel for there citizens, but if you follow the pattern of the israeli government, this was most likely a false flag op varied out by isreal to draw more international support

    Ironic, they spend so much effort into finding this old man, but dont talk about the high ranking nazis taken by the us government and industry and given clean records so the us could use there knowledge. Nasa, cia, dupont. For that mater without the nazis companies like monsanto, pfizer, merck, gsk, wyeth none of them would have been possible.

    What are you going to do to a hundred year old man? He should have been caught years ago, when he could have answered for his crimes.
