Countering The Vile Comparison Of Israelis As Nazis

08/12/2014

I am an Israeli citizen. I am an American citizen. I am also completing a Master's degree in Holocaust studies and a resident of Gush Etzion, a bloc of settlements in the West Bank in Israel. Now that I've laid all my cards out on the table, I am going to rail against a phenomenon that has developed over the past few years: comparing Israelis to Nazis. The comparison is insulting and blatantly, historically inaccurate.
