Killing Jews is bad

Greville Janner is the British secretary of the all-party parliamentary War Crimes Group. He writes that only one Nazi who found sanctuary in Britain after the war was prosecuted and jailed. That man, Anthony Sawoniuk, has just died.

Perhaps Janner would like to consider more contemporary war criminals. Israeli Generals who boast of killing Palestinian children? American soldiers who kill Iraqi civilians? Australian leaders who participate in an illegal war?

Western consciousness is still immune to the thought that “we” cause mayhem, chaos and death. That’s something only “they” do. State terrorism causes far more destruction than any other kind of terrorism.

We should live in a world where justice is divided equally. A Serbian murderer can be brought to justice alongside an American Secretary of State who wilfully orders the bombing of innocent civilians.

That day is coming.
