England's Shame

My brother, David, offers these comments onm Prince Harry's Nazi proclivities:

I am just amazed about the way the issue about Young Prince Harry's wearing of a Nazi uniform has been set out. The thing that amazes me is that it has become solely a 'Jewish issue'. The Jerusalem Post talks about the need for Holocaust education and sensitivities on the Nazi atrocities. In fact, the Jerusalem Post, quotes the BBC saying that 60% of those surveyed under 35 had never heard of Auschwitz. But what the BBC didn't survey, I guess, is how many of them never heard of Coventry? Or the terror bombing or the battle of Britain or V2 rockets for that matter? How many had never heard of Winston Churchill? Or of D-Day? If I am not mistaken, the Nazi's were pretty actively at war with Britain. And for a long time, a war waged indiscriminately against civilian targets. I find it shocking that the British media felt it was just a case of the Jews being overly sensitive. This is apparent by the only questions they asked. The should have surveyed, as Tom Lehrer said in his song, "...the widows and cripples in old London town who owe their large pensions to Werner Von Braun."
And as for a Prince of the Realm dressing up in the costume of the enemy who brought such death and destruction to Britain and not even think it is wrong, is amazing. And for this to be only a Jewish issue is a sign of a deeper problem on "this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England."

It seems he's more like his great-grand uncle, the ex-Edward VIII, who was a Nazi stooge than his great-grandfather George VI who backed Churchill and stood with his people against the Nazi menace.

I don’t believe for a minute that Prince Harry is a Nazi or a Nazi sympathizer. By all reports, he isn’t bright enough to hold fast to any kind of ideology. I do believe that he is a product of post national Europe, which believes that such things as Nazis are far in the past. They believe that they have grown beyond the 20th Century. It is therefore no more relevant to them today than dressing up as ogres or dragons. And since these things don’t exist and can no longer exist what’s the big deal.
