Well, as long as one would hand their wives, daughters, and granddaughters
over upon demand.

Most militias are racist - all one need do is read their literature.  And
just because someone is an "Iranian Jew" does not mean they are not racist.
Having "minorities" or "Iranian Jews" as part of a militia's membership does
not exonerate the advocation of violence.  Militias tend to hold up their
"non-white" members as trophies. . .however, most of us are not that stupid.

There are NO, I repeat, NO parallels between what happened to the Jews and
what is happening with the militias.  This is AN INSULT to the Jewish
people.  My god.
