The line of reasoning that denounces the cartoon because there is no equating Israel's actions with those of the Nazi's seems to be making the point that short of the FINAL solutions, anything Israel does is not to be considered or equated with inhuman acts. This is the most abusrd line of reasoning I have ever heard... seems like my brothers are suffering from some fresh thinking on the subject...


If the jackboot fits, wear it.

this is clearly a racist cartoon. it is easy to brand israel this way for protecting herself against the government these "people" elected. you don't want to be considered anti-semitic show me a cartoon depicting muhammad/muslims in the samr lite than i will say you arte even handed till then this is a racist cartoon


The cartoon appears to describe Israel today as fueled by Nazism. The thinking is the same, Racial Cleansing, a learned behavior,... possibly?
