There are some who would say that to call the Israelis Nazis is an act of antisemitism. I say, if Israelis do not want this comparison, they should stop behaving in the manner of the Nazis. Israel’s actions in many way mimic that of the Nazi Germans. No nation is above criticism, no nation is “exceptional”. Those that declare themselves “exceptional”, as did the Nazis, are inevitably the worst violators of human rights.
