Prince Nazi?

[Media Source*]

I can't believe I missed this! It seems that the Prince of England decided to be "don" a Nazi outfit (complete with the emblem on the left arm) in order to be fashionably fit for a party. What he didn't count on was the reaction from the media (who is actually doing it's job now) which has harshly rebuked him with some demanding that he visit the Auschwitz death camps for penance. Despite his apologies, he is going to have to make some quick actions in order to appease the Jewish community, who suffers enough from Anti Semitism in Europe already.

Pressure is growing on Prince Harry to make a personal and public apology for wearing a Nazi uniform, complete with swastika armband, to a fancy dress party.

Regardless of whether or not this stunt was tasteless, it has gotten the negative attention from Israel and those opposed to anti-semitism in general.
Earlier, Israel's foreign minister and the EU's foreign policy chief joined the throng of anti-fascist groups, Jewish human rights organizations and politicians who rounded on Prince Harry. Israeli foreign minister Silvan Shalom was among those who criticized him, describing the use of Nazi symbols as intolerable.

"I think anybody who tries to pass it off as bad taste must be made aware that this can encourage others to think that perhaps that period was not as bad as we teach the young generation in the free world," he said. EU foreign policy chief, Javier Solana said: "It's not an appropriate thing to do."

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre, one of the largest international Jewish human rights groups, urged him to visit Auschwitz death camp to see the full horrors of the Nazi regime.

Perhaps this is Harry's "Right of Passage," a way for him to become a man as some have gathered from his lastest fashion facade. Either way I hope he learns his lessons very quickly--the world is less forgiving for second blunders (especially stupid ones such as these). Selah!
