You make me sick truly trying to make this comparison.
Hamas bares more resemblance to the Nazi's than anyone else.
This is getting old quickly, the Jews have turned into the Nazi's rubbish.
How are Hamas more like the Nazis?
Really, I'd like to know.
The people are the ones held within Gaza, aid restricted, movements controlled, press refused. Hamas are not the ones holding people within Gaza,
stealing the land, preventing aid coming through, denying press access during an operation, refusing medical treatment to those injured...
If you compare Hamas to anything during ww2, the closest you can compare them to is the French resistance fighting Nazi occupation (and I'm not
defending them, I am stating fact based on the belief that an "occupied people have a right to form a resistance"). While that is the best
comparison, it's a loose one. Hamas is as out of control and arrogantly insane as Israel. But they are more comparable to the French resistance than
any other historical similarity during ww2.
Plenty of people have pointed this out.
A nation blockaded while their land is occupied is a resistance. You or I may not agree with their methods and the actions they support, but they are
a resistance. And they were elected, because the people in Gaza saw it as the only option.
I have no doubt that had the French resistance been able to fire rockets at German towns and villages during WW2, they would have.
Your response is obviously biased, but I know I would appreciate it if you considered history when trying to refute an observation, rather than just
state a blanket denial without offering any other opinion.
I could have easily responded to your statement with "You're wrong! I'm right!" but that doesn't move things along in this discussion does it?
