89-year-old John Demjanjuk is taken from his home in Ohio by immigration agents. Demjanjuk faces deportation to Germany to face charges he was a guard at a Nazi death camp during WWII. AP
A German Nazi Hunter who has been hunting for leftover death camp guards since 1958 partnered with the U.S. Justice Department and U.S. Immigration are thinking they may get international brownie points by extraditing the frail Demjanjuk who was previously exonerated by an Israeli court.
What,can't the Germans find any former German death camp guards IN GERMANY to hang? How about those infamous Capos who were Jewish death camp guards - who would rather be death camp guards instead of death camp prisoners.
This entire story stinks to high heaven since the only 'evidence' is a faked ID card provided by the most untruthful Soviet Union. This latest abominable deportation attempt is no more than a payback to Obama's liberal Jewish constituency. It has nothing to do with justice.
With millions of illegal immigrants robbing America, is it really necessary to kill a long-time, hard working, retired, American, auto plant worker immigrant? This has been a thirty year nightmare for a man that has been labeled Ivan The Terrible - without substantial proof and an acquittal from the Israeli Supreme Court. The Nazi hunters have become the Nazis, and they may get the same mercy in the time of need that they have bestowed on John Demjanjuk.
Maybe the German professional Nazi hunters, before they run out of real Nazis, can find a few WW II German veterans who stood guard at some of the horrific death camps. I have heard that more than a few can still be found in German veteran beer hauses, lifting their steins , and still, secretly zig heiling and reminiscing about the good ole days.
Back in 2005 - Demjanjuk in court to fight extradition to Ukraine
Long story, short: John Demjanjuk is an 85 year old Russian immigrant who originally served as a Russian soldier, but was taken prisoner by the Germans in WW II. As a Russian prisoner of war he may have been assigned to Jewish death camps [his entire history is conjecture] Wilkipedia
He emigrated to the U.S. in 1951 and spent the most of his American life working at a Ford plant and raising a family. In the late seventies, the now deceased Nazi Hunter Simon Wiesenthal with fellow U.S. Justice Department Nazi Hunters charged Demjanjuk with crimes against humanity for being the infamous "Ivan The Terrible," death camp Jew-killer. He was deported to Israel, and sentenced to hanging, but after languishing in prison for five years awaiting the death penalty, the Israeli Supreme Court judged that there was not enough evidence.
Wiesenthal's Nazi Hunters and U.S. Department of Justice Nazi Hunters have been pounding on this man ever since. Relentless. Unmerciful.
Demjanjuk has been under the Nazi hunter gun for various reasons, including the fact that he was not completely honest on his immigration application to the U.S.
Well, excuse me, why are an estimated 10 million illegal immigrants allowed to live and work in the U.S. today, but John Demjanjuk, who has been contributing to American Society for over thirty years be, may be stripped of his citizenship and deported because he cannot give a credible account to the nazi hunters in the Justice Department?
It has been so long since we have been involved in a full scale world war in the United States that, perhaps, we have no idea how much pandemonium and displacement is experienced in a world war. So, Demhanjuk cannot account for where he was at any particular time during WW II - just like millions of other victims of the war.
Maybe its time for Wiesenthal's and the Justice Department's Nazi hunters to see if there are any Jewish Capos still living in the United States. The Capos were Jews who collaborated with Nazis in the WW II death camps.
