    German prosecutors announced Wednesday that they had begun proceedings against 90-year-old former Nazi guard Samuel Kunz.

    Kunz, who admitted to working as a guard at the Belzec extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland from 1942 to 1943, stands accused of participation in the murder of 430,000 Jews. He is also charged with the shooting of 10 Jews in two separate incidents, prosecutor Christoph Goeke told the Associated Press news agency.

    Kunz, who worked as a craftsman after World War II in the western German city of Bonn, was third on the Simon Wiesenthal Center's top-ten list of most-wanted Nazi suspects published in April. The Wiesenthal Center's Ephraim Zuroff said Wednesday that the Kunz case proves it is not too late to bring Nazi criminals to justice.

    According to Zuroff, Kunz was uncovered by the US Justice Department through testimony given at the trial of Ukrainian-born John Demjanjuk in Munich. Demjanjuk was first brought to court last November for his alleged involvement in the murder of 27,900 people at the Sobibor death camp in Poland.

    It's a good thing that they are still searching and identifying some of these guys. I am actually surprised when they caught Eichman back in 1960. Anyway some may say to let the old farts go. I say once they are positively identified and found guilty carry out their executions immediately. They don't have much time left for justice to be done.

    Really? Wouldn't it be easier just to murder the entire white race? Would Jews shut the fuck up then?

    Jews got rough treatment from Nazis. But pretty much every human group throughout history has given and received rough treatment -- and JEWS do it BIG TIME to Palestinians RIGHT FUCKING NOW. Are you going to support endless hunting down of aging Jews who ran the concentration camp called Gaza? Or is that "different" because Jews are "God's Chosen People"?

    Turning one people's victimization into a DEITY place above all others' victimization is not doing us any good. It is not fair, it is not justice. It's just politics, bloody politics.
