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.
Before then, your analogy is moronic and a base attempt at either a) criticizing Israel out of proportion or b) attempting to justify and rationalise Nazi actions.
Israel and Palestine are at WAR...
Its propaganda like this that does the process of debate a lot of harm. It prevents people from taking a middle ground to denounce all violence.
When Israel starts shipping Palestinians to concentration camps to be gassed, you let me know.
The Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd ed. defines concentration camp as: a camp where non-combatants of a district are accommodated, such as those instituted by Lord Kitchener during the South African war of 1899-1902; one for the internment of political prisoners, foreign nationals, etc., esp. as organized by the Nazi regime in Germany before and during the war of 1939-45.
Similar camps existed earlier (such as the US concentration camps for Cherokee and other Native Americans in the 1830s, in Cuba (1868–78), and in the Philippines (1898–1901) by Spain under the Restoration and the US respectively), the English term "concentration camp" was first used to describe camps operated by the British in South Africa during the 1899-1902 Second Boer War. Ostensibly conceived as a form of humanitarian aid to the families whose farms had been destroyed in the fighting, the camps were used to confine and control large numbers of civilians as part of a scorched earth tactic.
At the time that Kitchener started the concentration camps in South Africa the war had entered the guerilla phase. By destroying crops, livestock and farmsteads under the 'Scorched Earth' policy the Boer fighters were deprived of supplies and shelter. It also left the women and children on such farms destitute and they were forcibly removed, against their will, to the camps where thousands died of disease and starvation.
Use of the word concentration comes from the idea of concentrating a group of people who are in some way undesirable in one place, where they can be watched by those who incarcerated them. For example, in a time of insurgency, potential supporters of the insurgents are placed where they cannot provide them with supplies or information.
Macabre form of tourism.. From the hill tops Israelis follow the bombardment of Gaza, while enjoying soft drinks and snacks
Keren Levy (Real Estate agent): "They Chose Hamas to rule them, it's their fault, they got it to where it is now"
- Don't you think it gets worse bombing them?
"No I think that is the only solution, I think they should just clear off all the city, just take it off the ground."
"Yes I'm a little bit fascist."
