Nazi Insinuations

For Gideon Levy, Zionism was like Nazism, sort of.

He has a new column up defending, but, of course, Mahmoud Abbas.

"Not one Israeli statesman today intends to apologize for the Nakba – not for the ethnic cleansing, nor for the exiling. But Abbas had no choice but to apologize for his Holocaust remark"

Let's count the ways Abbas needed to apologize:

a. The Mufti was a partner in the murder of Jews during the Holocaust with Hitler and a supporter of Nazi ideology (not to mention the killing of Jews in Eretz-Yisrael in the previous years).

b. Abbas' doctorate is a classic Holocaust denial and revisionism tract.

c. As I noted already, he has apologized previously for the same content but keeps on saying the same things.

But did Jews bomb Berlin cafes, Hamburg supermarkets or Bavarian beer halls in an effort to dislodge Germans from their property, land and possessions to "deserve" gas chambers? Did Zionists term Arabs ideologically as untermenschen?

There is no comparison. Even if Levy adds:

The fact that the Holocaust was much more horrific than the Nakba doesn’t legitimize denial of the other’s disaster, which is never-ending.

The Nakba is not the Holocaust.
But there was ethnic cleansing, of Jews by Arabs during 1920-1948, from hebron, Gaza, Shchem, Jenin, Jericho and Jerusalem. Jews were exiled from Jaffa.

But for Levy, Zionism is, well, sort of, Nazism.

Even his apology was no a real apology - and no one noticed: it was tothe “Jewish faith” - not the Jewish People. His trick is to say that Jews are not a nation but merely members of faith which means they’re not entitled to an indigenous People connected the the land but instead are Jewish Poles, Jewish Frenchmen, Jewish Russians etc.
