This is really rather good.
No, really, a balanced piece about the so called neo-Nazi supporting MEPs that are part of Cameron\’s group in the European Parliament.
For Zuroff, the dispute over Baltic complicity with the Nazis in the second world war is part of a broader, contemporary campaign to whitewash history by equating Soviet communism with Nazism, making Hitler and Stalin twin and equal monsters. For many Jews, the unique horror of the Holocaust makes any such attempt to liken the Nazis to the communists highly offensive.
But in eastern European countries such as Latvia, only recently recovering liberty and independence, the Third Reich\’s invasion was followed by 45 years of Soviet occupation, and tens of thousands were hauled off to Stalin\’s gulag in Siberia. For them, likening German Nazis to Russian communists seems entirely valid.
The reason to go look is that it is in The Guardian.
Seriously, balanced reporting, who would have thought it?
