Chas Newkey-Burden on the “they-of-all-people” argument

I just saw a reblog on Tumblr of a great quote by Chas Newkey-Burden on the learning, or not learning, of the "lessons" of the Holocaust, and thought it should be reposted here:
"Let us strip the 'they-of-all-people' argument down to its very basics: gentiles telling Jews that we killed six million of your people and that as a result it is you, not us, who have lessons to learn; that it is you, not us, who need to clean up your act. It is an argument of atrocious, spiteful insanity. Do not accept it; turn it back on those who offer it. For it is us, not you, who should know better."
