Immortalising the Myth Comparing Zionist Apartheid Israel to Nazi Germany

 I’m not ready to take on another video project, at the moment, but I get incensed when so many people—even intelligent commentators like Paul Craig Roberts and Man of the People, Roger Waters—insist on comparing Israel to Nazi Germany, when the comparison is quite absurd.  Israel’s policies are far worse than Nazi Germany’s ever were.

Paul Craig Roberts wrote: A person might wonder what is exceptional and indispensable about a government that is a reincarnation of Nazi Germany in every respect.

Roger Waters said: The parallels with what went on in the 30’s in Germany are so crushingly obvious that it doesn’t surprise me that the movement that both you and I are involved in is growing every day.

It has been said that comparisons are odious, and they are even more so when the comparison is biased in the wrong direction.

Zionism’s stated aim, as propounded by Theodore Herzl at the First Zionist Congress in Basel, August 1897, was to steal a land already occupied by others in order to create the Zionist Jewish State of Israel.  And, ironically, it was not Adolph Hitler but Herzl who first coined the phrase “the final solution of the Jewish question” in a communication with the Czar of Russia.

The unification of Germany took place in 1871.  However, as it was with many European nations at the time, there were many areas of conflict and dissent with local populations who spoke different languages and many German-speaking people were left out of the unified nation who, in troubled times, were at the mercy of opposing political forces in countries such as France, Poland and the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia.
