BBCI would love to know how this idea actually entered someone's head.
...I am utterly fucking SPEECHLESS. Aren't there hundreds of better ways to use the money wasted on creating an event that boils down to "LOOK LOOK THESE WOMEN SURVIVED TEH EVUL NAZIS LET US ALL POINT AND STARE"?!? I mean, I am just about livid. Who the hell not only thought this was a good idea, but agreed to pay for it?!?
This type contest never happens. It's all lies.
I'm a beauty pageant denier.
Hey its their history, let them do whatever they want. Doesn't affect anyone here at all.
Awesome. Can't wait.
Are you saying every single Holocaust survivor lives in Israel?
No I'm saying let them do whatever they want.
Of course they can do whatever they want. That doesn't make it any less baffling or ridiculous, and that doesn't free them from criticism.
haha i agree moderator for deleting my post. was not aware of it. .
back to topic: this is a ridiculous thing they have done and it also shows how people are jobless and crazy they can get....
*sigh* i cannot stop
To be honest, it may not be as bad as it seems. Those are some pretty elderly people and many people do not recognize what they have gone through - it may get pretty depressing after a while. The contestants, although it may have reminded them of not the best time of their life, get another round of attention they probably strongly desired.
It is controversial, however here is a quote from one contestant:
"I have the privilege to show the world that Hitler wanted to exterminate us and we are alive. We are also enjoying life. Thank God it's that way."
So the bottom line is, it's kinda wierd, kinda good, kinda what the fuck, and Hitler can totally suck on it.
Y'know, I'm not entirely opposed to this idea. Truly.
I mean, for fuck's sake, dogs and cats have beauty pageants! Little four-year-olds have 'pageants' where they're made to look like whores!
I'd rather see a pageant that celebrates life despite of all the world's evils than all the other shit. Sue me if you don't like it.
This is absolutely ridiculous
How about they stop their terrorism to the Palestinians? I'm not denying the Jews suffering from Nazis, but my point still stands.
Holocaust = Serious Business
...except in Israel, apparently. Seriously, even the participants themselves should be incredibly offended that their tragedy is turned into a mockery. This is in really bad taste.
you idiots think that those "normal" stuff holds no meaning to the citizens in Israel?
as a soldier and an Israeli citizen I think you have no idea what it's like here until you are here.
I love how several holocaust survivors participated in, and probably really enjoyed, this beauty pageant, and yet everyone is freaking out over it.
Who the fuck are YOU to be offended by it if they aren't? You're like white people who can't even call someone black for fear of sounding racist. Stop being so damn paranoid.
I'm not going to sit here and preach that this was a normal and typical event. It's pretty odd, but the pageant contestants weren't held hostage and made to do it at gunpoint. They got to have some fun, and got to share their horrible experience in a pretty unique manner. I really don't see anything wrong with it.
ISRAEL DEFENCE FORCE
But this is pretty odd.
Calling us idiots doesn't make your comment better.
I'm not denying the jews suffering from the Nazis or anybody else and they have their right to organize an event as much as they want or the way they want to, but it's hypocritical of the Israelis to do this while they've killed a thousands of Palestinians including kids and women.
Jews are not the only victims of the Holocaust - Poles, Gypsies and other nationalities from Central and Eastern Europe (mostly of Slavic origin) were also exterminated by the Nazis. Some so-called "paranoid white people" also have a right to be offended, and even if their nationality is not among those victimized by the Nazi regime, it's still an event that was in bad taste.
Please don't get me started on Israeli Army, 'aight? They're not exactly what you'd call "fine lads".
The Holocaust wasn't just a Jewish tragedy, or a Polish tragedy. It was a human tragedy, a stain on the history of all mankind.
Seeing this pageant as being in poor taste doesn't make someone overly PC or paranoid in any way.
