Well, your question will get scorned by me too, it is a stupid question, tempts the respondent to give a stupid answer ... yes i realise that you intend it as response to Nadine's stupid question, but think about it, how does that advance the sum of human understanding, how many hearts and minds do you capture

The correct answer to your question is, The nazis didn't have enough time and resources, due to my nation and yours and a whole lot of other nations halting their efforts

The correct answer to Nadine's question is, The zionists calculated, quite rightly, that they did not have the political capital to completely ethnically cleanse the captured land, that the most they could do at that point was to dominate demographically, and loot the possessions of those indigenous who had fled from the hostilities ... recall that they were considered oppressed underdogs in 1948, not much time had passed since the russians had found the camps, that story was still coming out, and being used in the 'land without a people' project ... they were sufficiently shrewd with their political capital that they still had some left to spend when they invaded Egypt in 1956, even beyond, in some quarters, through the nuclear weapons and other chess moves

Imho that answer will stand more chance of winning hearts and minds than yours will ... at least it might stimulate one reader somewhere to look at the actual history ... the reason i didn't answer Nadine's stupid question at the time, was that i didn't have time, and she throws out so many you can't even keep track ... she must think it an effective tactic, maybe it is to some, not to me though ... and neither is yours

But hey, check it out today, i discovered what mike9 really really likes, 'you people' ... applied it by accident to stockman scott and any ilk he felt he might have collected, and michael figured it applied to some unspecified group he's in ... lol ... it is good that people have the capacity for arousal, it would be better if they could at the same time smarten tfu
