'Why Jews Are Evil Jews' Assignment Earns Punishment for 10th Grade Teacher Told Albany Students To Pretend They Were Nazis in 1930s

Interesting context this: The Jewish Newspaper, THE FORWARD, deleted the following comment:
“As a lesson, the next phase would be the significant one.
This teaches history ... and the statement, “Please remember your life (here in Nazi Germany in the 30s) depends on it!” provides context.
Having lost the European branch of the family (hundreds of cousins aunts and uncles) in the Holocaust, the topic could be disturbing. But as a former teacher, one who liked to encourage critical thinking, I can see what the objective was. Moreover, I really can't think of a better way to teach the context of World War Two than to have students justify an act because it meant their own lives were on the line... not because they believed what they were arguing.”
What is the Forward afraid of? Are they fearful of people actually thinking about the fear that befell millions under the Nazis? Are they afraid of people actually thinking about it and about having their lives depend on their ability to argue a position they believed wrong? Does the Forward not believe there could possibly have been Jews in that tenth grade class?
Of is it that modern Jews have suddenly resigned their intellectual position in the world … have shed their brains in favor of being “politically Correct” to a standard that justifies illegal foreign “wars” … like Afghanistan? Why illegal? Because Congress has the Constitutional mandate to DECLARE – formally – al real Wars … and, as with Vietnam, the American Congress declined to take the legal route … instead, it just decided to, once again, commit illegal murders of foreign national… But what do you expect of a Congress who declines to even provide medical treatment for it’s own people?
