Latvia reviews compensation bill
Posted by mythoughtsandnews on November 24, 2006
Latvia’s Parliament is due to discuss a $57 million compensation bill for the Jewish community.
The bill up for review Thursday, already approved by the Cabinet, says the money is to “compensate for the historically unfair consequences suffered by the Jewish community due to the Nazi Holocaust and Soviet occupation.”
Prime Minister Aigars Kalvisits has told Latvian media that since the state owns property that once belonged to Jews and Jewish organizations, compensation is the only fair way to deal with the long-term issue of property loss.
What about the groups that the Jews have slaughtered over the years? Do you see Jews stepping up to compensate them, No. Do you see the Jews stepping up and say they are sorry for all the killings they have done, no you do not and they will NEVER admit to their crimes.
