    No More Holocaust Reparations, Says German Finance Minister
    Deutsche Welle (Germany)
    http://www.dw- world.de/dw/article/0,,2968661,00.html?maca=en- bulletin-433-html

    Finance Minister Peer Steinbr├╝ck said in Jerusalem Thursday that Germany had no plans to renegotiate a Holocaust reparations deal signed with Israel in 1952. "The existing deal is signed and final and there is no need to change it," said Steinbr├╝ck ... The [1952] Luxembourg agreement between the two countries stipulated that Germany would pay Israel reparations, and Israel would look after the survivors, who would not be permitted to sue Germany directly. Since the 1950s, Germany has paid 26 billion euros ($38 billion) in compensation. Around 1.7 billion of this went to Israel, the rest to German claimants.

    Oh, fair enough. He could still add some commentary now for this thread though.

    Yeah....let's close the case.

    The Jews could bleed Germany dry, and then much of the rest of the world. It's over. :eek:

    It seems that if there was already an agreement between the countries it is a settled deal and needs to be left as it is from the time agreed upon.

    Doubt it, the amount paid over the last 50 or so years is probably of little consequence to the German people or government.
    This statement doesnt have much reality based in it. Talk to OPEC about bleeding the world dry.

    The Holocaust is over.

    Now that most Holocaust generations are dying off, I'll be interested in seeing how Jewish Hollywood keeps the story alive, and how much it'll stretch the truth to achieve desired effects. Just curious.:)
