Lantos Tells Europeans the Truth

Rep Tom Lantos (D-Ca), a Hungarian Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, now representing a San Francisco area district in Congress  heard a Dutch Green Party legislator threaten to withdraw his country's troops from Afghanistan because “We have to close Guantanamo because it symbolizes for me everything that is wrong with this war on terror."
Bravely, insightfully and oh so truthfully and undiplomatically Lantos replied: “Europe was not as outraged by Auschwitz as by Guantanamo Bay."
 
Lantos also averred: “You have to help us, because if it was not for us you would now be a province of Nazi Germany.”

Finally, somebody dared tell the Dutch--and by extension the Europeans--the truth.
