What an incredibly powerful piece! Nathan Newman compares the new Israeli wall separating Arabs from the Jewish part of Bethelhem to the Warsaw Ghetto.

When the Nazi comparison is made, Israel defenders mount the barricades, since the Palestinians are not being gassed in ovens. But the horrors of Nazism started much earlier, as the Jews were stripped of their humanity and autonomy long before they lost their lives.
Newman does not let us off easily.
No, it is not Nazi Germany circa 1943.

It is Nazi Germany circa 1938.

Those who can defend Israel on that basis should be ashamed.
