David Frum: Trudeau didn’t just defend the niqab. He defended the niqab by trivializing the Holocaust | National Post

“The short answer is that the “key audience” Justin Trudeau wished to reach in his Toronto speech is an audience that seeks to appropriate Jewish history for their own political purposes.”

My family emigrated to Canada from Germany in the 50’s. To claim the Holocaust as purely Jewish history is to deny me the right to also clam it as a shameful part of MY German history. You cannot appropriate history for your own political purpose while hypocritically condemning others for doing the same. Peter Guenther
