Idiot Prince does a Taboo-boo

The News: England's Prince Harry was caught on film at a costume party dressed as {gasp} an Afrika Korps officer wearing the dread "S" symbol on an armband. Fleet street atwitter. An not just the street. According to the Independent "Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre said: "This was a shameful act displaying insensitivity for the victims, not just for those soldiers of his own country who gave their lives to defeat Nazism, but to the victims of the Holocaust who were the principal victims of the Nazis."

The Note: Principal victims? Once again ethnocentricity triumphs over fact.. The Jews were not the "principal" victims of the Nazis: 20 million Russians were. But Rabbi Hier apparently only counts victims whose suffering is unique and special. At any rate, the taboo campaign against another idiot prince will be nauseating to watch.
