Curious deletion by Guardian comment moderators in Demjanjuk thread

A May 13 CiF piece by Jonathan Romain (John Demjanjuk’s conviction is about justice, not vengeance) was open to comments for an unusually short period of time, but produced this predictable comment by a serial Israel hater known as Berchmans, who took issue with a comment by HushedSilence characterizing Demjanjuk, the SS guard at the Sobibor death camp who was an accomplice to the murder of 28,000 Jews, as a “monster”. 

HushedSilence then responded:

And then:

While we’re all too familiar with the Guardian displaying bias or double standards in their decision to delete some comments while allowing others to remain, I’m especially baffled by this deletion, and would really love to know how their moderators can possibly claim that HushedSilence’s comment in any way violated their “community standards”.
