'If there is one thing that the Zionist movement and Israel’s supporters hate it is comparisons between the ‘Jewish’ State of Israel and Nazi Germany. ‘Anti-Semitism’ they cry like crows. It is the only Zionist response to criticism. The fake Zionist IHRA definition of anti-Semitism that Theresa May has embraced, gives as one of 11 illustrative examples of ‘anti-Semitism’:
Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.’
Shami Chakrabarti, in her Report on racism and anti-Semitism to the Labour Party also criticised the use of Holocaust comparisons.
‘In day -to-day political debate , it is always incendiary to compare the actions of Jewish people or institutions anywhere in the world to those of Hitler or the Nazis or to the perpetration of the Holocaust. Indeed such remarks can only be intended to be incendiary rather than persuasive.’
Shami Chakrabarti, whose Report was admirable in many ways, in particular its (so far ignored) recommendations on a fair and transparent disciplinary process in the Labour Party, was out of her depth when she dealt with Zionism and Israel. It was not a subject she knew anything about and her opinions were shallow and superficial.
Even if it is ‘incendiary’ to compare demonstrations in Israel that chant ‘Death to the Arabs’ to similar ones in Nazi Germany or Poland, where the chant was ‘Death to the Jews’, is that any reason to be silent? If Nazi Germany forbade Jews buying German ‘national’ land in much the same way as non-Jews are prevented from buying ‘Jewish national’ land in Israel, is the fear of being ‘incendiary’ a reason to be quiet?
But in any case the comparison is not between Jews and Nazi Germany but between Zionists and Nazi Germany — a big difference.'
