A few years ago I walked down to your office and checke with people, read some reviews, trying to decide if I wanted to take a class with you. The location of your office is very good, accessible and promissing. After reading a few of your articles I came to the conclusion that you had a hidden anti Jewish agenda. I dont know why and the way you write about our WW2 concentration camp experiences is absurd. I xpect comments like yours from a "know-nothing" antisemite. Some fascist Hungarians say what you do. They have no shame.
But you? What have we done to you and your ilk to be so antisemitic? Probably some set backs in your academic world twisted your mind and now you preach this hatred of the Jews. Not so much hatred as total lack of understanding of why we are trying to protect ourselves from the likes of you.
Read some basic history of events and find out where past lies from the Nazis had taken us. You sound to me like they are. Do I want to go through Auschwitz, Buchenwald and the rest again because I believed what you stand for? NEVER! I suggest that you take the trip, at least mentally, through what we have and see if your views toward us will change. Right now you sound BRAIN DEAD.
