I never signed up for the KKK

Imagine that your grandparents signed a membership contract to be members of the Ku Klux Klan. According to the contract, they were under the obligation to pay monthly membership fees, and if they did not pay, the contract provided penalties that would be incurred. Now suppose, this contract had the audacity to attempt to obligate your grandparents' descendents - you and everyone in your family. How would you react if the KKK started levying penalties against YOU because you hadn't paid the required dues that your grandparents said you would? Under contract law, would that contract bind you?

The fact of the matter is that contracts can only serve to bind the people that sign them. Descendents cannot be obligated to fulfill the contracts of their parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and so on.

Did you ever sign a contact to be part of the club "We the People of the united States of America"? Then under law, why are you obligated to pay membership fees? Does being born in a certain location negate the need for your signature to be contractually obligated to some entity calling itself the "government of the united States"?

Pardon me, but...

do you live in Germany now? I didn't think so... The 'aid' to the Zionist regime from Germany isn't occasional as you suggest. I urge you to actually talk with someone who knows before you go off on another temper tantrum. The profanity isn't necessary to make your point. I am not a shill...and I will stir up all the poop against the Zionists that I like, thank you very much.

I don't usually 'lose my temper' and I'm happy to listen to people beat up on Israel for the many legitimate reasons why somebody would do so. With all the real reasons that exist, why invent more?

Okay, so provide proof of your claims. There must be some official figures you are basing your argument on. I promise that if you prove your words to me, I will humbly apologize. I don't think you can prove it and so I insist you are just stirring the pot with false claims.

BTW, I am an American citizen of German ancestry, speak fluent German, have been to Germany multiple times, was an exchange student there in high school, and have loads of friends there. I think I know a thing or two about the history and people of Germany that being the case.

"lost real estate"? - Huh?

The state of Israel did not exist until after WWII. How can it have "lost real estate"?

Correct

I never said they did in my comment.

Thanks
