Something to think about
We all know of the Holocaust. What is the difference between that and what the Israelis are doing to the Palestinians?

Do you actually want an answer or is this a boohoo the poor palestinians post?

Many differences in circumstances - the most glaring one to my mind is that the Israeli objective - if such a thing exists - is not the mass-extermination of all Palestinians...

I should also say at this juncture that I have no axe to grind in this debate - I think both sides are at this point equally culpable and frankly I don't foresee any kind of solution happening any time soon...

The holocaust was the attempted systematic destruction of an entire ethic group.

What the Israelis are doing is definitely not systematic, nor is it the attempted destruction of an entire ethnic group. Well I suppose that one might argue that it is systematic, but the main goal is very far from genocide.

They are not comparable situations at all. Fighting back when some group fire missiles at you is not nearly the same as rounding up an innocent group of people and murdering them.

The Israelis are using missiles to protect their people. Hamas is using their people to protect their missiles. And you want to compare Israel to the Nazis?

In Joshua, "god" instructs his chosen people to kill all infidels.

The current happenings in the middles east are (we are told by Israeli leaders) is the fulfillment of Biblical prophesy, which means that Jordan, Palestine, most of Iraq and parts of Lebanon, Syria and even Saudi Arabia was "given" to the Jewish people. Keep in mind that nation-states with marked borders are a relatively new development in human history. Also, remember that not all Jews support Israeli policies, any more than all Americans support US policies...
