What do we think we are doing when we call the Israelis Nazis and liken Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto? [T]here is not the remotest similarity, either in intention or in deed, between Gaza and Warsaw.
Berating Jews with their own history is the latest species of Holocaust denial. Anyone with scant knowledge of the history of Israeli-Palestinian relations would assume that Jews descended on the country as from a clear blue sky; that they had no prior association with the land other than in religious fantasy and through some scarce remembered genealogical affiliation. They make little or nothing of the Jews' unbroken connection with the country going back thousand[s of] years, the piety felt for the land, or the waves of idealistic immigration which long predated the post-Holocaust influx.
