Yep, if you don't like a part of history, destroy all remnants of it to make everyone feel better.

Zeman disapproves of erasing a cultural landmark.

THis is indicative of the current European mindset, simply ignoring things that you don't agree with or don't like. There will be no Czech diplomats at the ceremony if it ever happens.

Benjamin Netanyahu requests that Austria allows Israel to have a central role in this event, as many of our people have lost close family under Hitler's rule. He also requests that some holocaust survivors be allowed to be present for the demolition, if they so wish.

Netanyahu is disappointed with the rejection of his request. He notes that destroying items from history can lead to a radicalisation of sections of the community, who may choose to view this as a sort of martyrdom. For this reason such actions must be dealt with openly rather than making attempts to hide the truth of what is going on. He further stresses that this action will be very therapeutic for the Jewish people, which is why he requests the demolition be filmed, so that Israel can see it happen with their own eyes.

Russian media has picked up the story and is extensively reporting on the news.

Russia-24 TV presenter Tatiana Stolyarova spoke about the general approval of these measures. "The fact that the house was still standing has been a controversial issue for decades. We are glad to see the Austrian government has finally come to their senses. Nothing good comes from offering remembrance to historic mass murderers and warmongers!"

[M] @singingoncloudnine this seems like an excellent time to reveal sad Hitler.
