COMMENT: Apoldo, Lou (MC1963) disagrees with fjohn68’s analysis



RE: POSITRACTION: Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds “We are all Jews here.”

Lou Apoldo

The analysis of this story that “We are all Jews” or “We are all Muslims” do not have the moral equivalence that is implied by this analysis. In the context of the story, the Jews were being supported to protect them from being killed, which is very admirable to support these innocents whose very lives were being threatened by those Nazi monsters. However, saying “We are all Muslims” in the contrext of today’s events is not to protect the victims, but rather to protect the oppressors. It would be more appropriate to have the analysis more correctly say: “We are all Muslims” or “We are all Nazis.”

[JR: I disagree. If I was in a crowd and someone came to kill Jews or Muslims, then I would like to believe that I would stand with ANY minority who was being targeted for extinction because or their race, religion, sexual orientation, or that they are New England Patriots fans. That does NOT mean that I support the Islamic terrorists, Nazis, KKK-er, or any other such bigotry. I would like the Muslim community to show their support against this terrorism — why they don’t is beyond me — but that’s not MY problem. I have my own flaws to worry about and on Judgment Day that’s my conduct to defend. “And when we die, and you are sent to heaven for doing your conscience, and I am sent to hell for not doing mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?” Paul Scofield as Thomas More in “A Man for All Seasons” (1966) I’ll stand by my analysis.
