In a speech this week in Israel, former Israel Prime Minister Ehud Barak attacked current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Judah Ari Gross, “Barak flogs Netanyahu, laments ‘budding fascism’ in Israel”, timesofisrael, June 16, 2016). In his attack, Barak claimed that Israel faces no existential threats from regional enemies (ibid). He accused Netanyahu of magnifying the threats from Arab enemies by comparing them to Nazis (ibid).
Barak is wrong. If you compare the Nazi and ‘Palestinian’ world-views, you’ll find that the parallels between them are too startling to ignore.
In 1933, almost 15 years after Germany lost World War One, Adolf Hitler became leader of Germany. He was obsessed with Jew-hate ("The coming of Hitler", jewishhistory, no date). He had double vision: first, he saw the Aryan Race as supreme; and second, he saw his entire war strategy as based primarily upon “Jews” (ibid).
Adolf Hitler promised a new Germany. He created a new Germany.
He transformed Germany into an Aryan murder machine. His greatest single priority was killing Jews (Jay Bushinsky, “Hitler’s highest priority: The Jewish genocide”, jerusalempost, April 19, 2012).
The nations watched this horror unfold. At first, they couldn’t believe it. Then, they couldn’t escape it. Millions upon millions died.
Beginning with 1933, Hitler aimed to erase the humiliation of having lost World War One. He rearmed Germany in a blatant act of defiance against the Versailles Treaty of 1919.
1933 was also the year Hitler began his Jew-hate campaign in earnest. He ordered a national boycott of Jewish businesses (“The boycott of Jewish businesses”, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, no date).
In 1936, Hitler reoccupied the Rhineland. That was a blatant act of aggression.
In March, 1938, Hitler took over Austria (“Timeline of Selected Events 1931-1945”, Voices from the Second World War, sp.uconn.edu/~wwwcoh/TIMELINE, no date). That was another act of aggression.
In 1938-9, Hitler took over Czechoslovakia (ibid) in yet another act of aggression.
Through all of this, the world did nothing. Many praised Hitler. Many admired him.
In 1939, Hitler committed the ultimate act of aggression. He invaded Poland. He started a world war.
World War Two was about supremacy, conquest and killing Jews. It was a war fuelled by a Jew-hate never before seen. This war corrupted and destroyed everything it touched--everything.
We should learn from that War. We should learn that supremacy, conquest and Jew-hate lead only to corruption and unbelievable destruction, not peace.
The ‘Palestinian Cause’ imitates Nazi Germany. Like the Nazis, it engorges on supremacy, conquest and Jew-hate.
In 1964, approximately 16 years after Arabs lost their first war against the creation of the State of Israel (1948), the Arab League created the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) (“Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO): History & Overview”, thejewishvirtuallibrary, no date). The resulting PLO Charter obsessed over the Jews and Muslim supremacy. It promised the conquest of Israel.
Like Hitler, the PLO Charter has double vision: first, it sees the ‘Palestinian’ claim to the land of Israel as supreme (1968 PLO Charter, the essence of Articles 1,2 and 3); and, second, it looks forward to the destruction of the ‘Zionist entity’ (ibid, Article 22).
Like Germany in 1914-8, Arabs in 1948 started a war of aggression. Like Germany, they lost.
Like Germany, Arabs felt humiliated by that loss. Like Germany, they rearmed.
Like Germany, they set out on a series of aggressions. As happened to Nazi Germany, many praised (and continue to praise) these Arabs despite their aggression.
Like Germany, it uses boycott as a tool in its war against the Jew.
Get the picture?
As with the Nazis before them, ‘Palestinian’ acts of aggression are ignored by the nations. Like Nazis, ‘Palestinians’ aim to rid the land of all Jews (Robert Spencer, “Hamas imam to Jews: “We will totally exterminate you”, jihadwatch, July 30, 2014).
Since 1933, the year Adolf Hitler took control of Germany, the world has learned two things about supremacy, conquest and Jew-hate: first, it’s a recipe for a destruction beyond one’s imagination; and second, it never lies about its goal to exterminate Jews.
The Nazis linked nationalism with genocide (Richard Koenigsberg, “Nationalism, Nazism, Genocide”, Library of Social Sciences, ideologies of war, no date). A true Aryan state was simply not possible with the presence of the diseased, virus-soaked Jew (ibid).
The nationalism of the ‘Palestinian Cause’ has the same link. No ‘Palestinian’ state is possible so long as the evil Jew is on the land. For both of these cultures, Jew-hate and genocide stand at the core of their national dream.
World War Two taught us that when nationalism is tied to Jew-hate and genocide, the result is bloodshed, not peace. There will be no peace for Arab and Jew because ‘Palestinian’ nationalism is more about Hitler’s Jew-killing goals than about creating a functioning state.
The world needs to remember that no peace was ever built upon Jew-hate. The Nazis have already proven that.
Ehud Barak is wrong. Netanyahu doesn’t magnify the threat of regional enemies with a Nazi comparison. If anything, Netanyahu doesn’t make that comparison often enough.
