Given what I know about American education and how some of them think, it wouldn't surprise me if the OP was serious.

But the idea that the US is some sort of force for justice and truth all over the world needs to be put to rest.

The US does what its corporate overlords want it to do... and it was the same thing in 1941.

The capitalists wanted to benefit by selling to both sides, then when it became obvious that Nazi Germany was going to lose (after Hitler invaded Russia), they picked the right side and waited for the opportunity to profit from the decade plus of reconstruction.

*sigh*

Some threads are just so historically incorrect you have no desire to respond to it.

Wrong. We got involved once Japan bombed Pearl Harbor which is in Hawaii. Haven't you heard of Pearl Harbor Day? Encyclopedia Britannica is your friend.

Did The US Really Go Into WW2 Because Of Jews?
Absolutely. It was the Japanese Jews who insisted on war with the US and planned Pearl Harbor. Here is the proof:


Depicted below is Toshimoto Feinberg, praying at a Tokyo replica of the Wailing Wall, for the success of the Pearl harbor attack.


Here is Moshe Nakamata addressing the assembled Japanese army officers and urging them to greater glory.


Here Japanese Jewish women celebrate another triumph of the Imperial Navy.


Japanese memorial to Jewish Kamikaze pilots.


Said to have a mesmerizing personality, this was influential Mansanori Levine, publisher of "I Hear Things", the Jewish newspaper which supported the war.

It's really a shame that history is no longer taught in schools in our country.

What most people think of as the Holocaust--the "Final Solution"--did not become policy until 1942.

That is very inaccurate. The "Final Solution" was just the final stages of the Holocausts. Jews were being persecuted long before 1942. The Nazi regime started almost the minute they got into power in 1933. They started gradually by restricting Jewish citizens' rights. Then the government actively encouraged the looting and burning of Jewish businesses and homes. By the time of the Austrian Anschluss in 1938, the Germans marched into Austria and immediately began the process of rounding up Austrian Jews. Jews were being forcibly relocated to the Warsaw ghetto. The Holocausts were in full swing by then.

I have heard stories that Hitler originally considered deporting the Jews, but nobody including the U.S. would take them. So Hitler then began the process of genocide. I don't know how true this is.

Exactly. How anyone could miss that is beyond me. Bet they think the US decaled war on Germany first after that; also.

I think the poster was referring to the widespread executions in the camps as being the part that most people think of when they think of the Holocaust. However, people who know more about history would line up behind what you have said here.

Wow.... They don't teach history anymore?
Dr Pizza, look these up, they are quite interesting....
1. Dec, 7th 1941... The Italian Navy launches a large attack on Pearl Harbor, Georgia, where the Spanish Armada is based, thereby forcing the Mexican Government to declare war on Canada. Which gave us no choice but to drop a nuke on Berlin, thereby defeating Stalin and his nazi cronies.
