History repeats itself

Tell me this isn't deja vu all over again. 70 years ago, the Times of London decided that there were 'moderate Nazis.'
But meanwhile, back in the real world, do you remember when The Times (the London one of course) felt that Hitler was a moderate making concessions to ingratiate himself with the “radical” wing of his own Nazi party. Yes, you heard that right, upon implementing another plank in his plans to eradicate Jews (as meticulously documented years before in Mein Kampf), The Times wrote:
The new laws, while in line with anti-Semitism which has been a large part of the Fuhrer’s inspiration from the beginning are no doubt to be taken as an encouragement to the Radical wing of the party.
Let that sink in: if the Nazi party had a “Radical wing” (their capitalisation) are they seriously suggesting there was a moderate form of Nazi-ism? They concluded their article by trying to find the silver lining for the Jews of Germany:
The best to be said of the new laws is that they may offer German Jewry the process of law in place of arbitrary bullying and local tyranny.
And we all know where the trains to carry out that “process of law” ended for six million people.
Hamas and Fatah. The 'political' and 'military' wings of Hamas, Fatah and Hezbullah. 'Moderate Palestinians.' Those who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it. Read the whole thing.
