You're absolutely right, but you say that like it's not true for every single other cultural/ethnic group.

Please tell me you're joking.
1) WHICH Europeans are you talking about? England? The only thing they condemned was Nazi desires to gain economic/political control over Europe. France? No. Italy? No. Russia? Nope. Spain? Nope. Switzerland? Not at all. Eastern Europe? They might have, but they were all killed or imprisoned.
So there was NO "total condemnation," especially not where genocide was concerned. Any objections at all (and this includes America) addressed the Nazis' plan for Aryan domination.

This is true, but I'd like to point out that ignoring genocide is just a general trend of Western Culture.

Um. Yes. Swiss banks. Mercedes. etc.

It does. It speaks to two things:
First, it speaks to the willingness of Western culture to view Jews in the postwar era as part of "the majority" or as "standard westerners."
Second, it speaks to the inherent (and peculiar) status that this particular ethnicity has held in Western society for as long as we can remember.

Completely agree. It has nothing to do with ethnicity or ethnic solidarity, it has to do with one group being empowered by the rest of society, and another disempowered.
