Only Israel labled 'Nazi'
Walter Reich in the LA Times (req. reg.) :
Genocidal mass murder continues to foul the world. So do large-scale massacres of civilians and brutal executions.
Yet the foulest epithet in any language — "Nazi" — is hurled not against any of the perpetrators of those crimes but, uniquely and systematically, against Israel.
A piece well worth reading. We received a number of alerts from concerned Times readers regarding an illustration that accompanied this article in the print edition. The illustration (above - click for larger version) was the word 'NAZI' with Israel written inside the 'I'.
While the illustration was ill-conceived, its context alongside the article indicates that there was no major impropriety from the Times on this one.

you got to be kidding - this was a disgusting piece of anti-semitism - the article was about the anti-semitism of hurling the "Nazi" epithet at Israel - the illustration actually hurls the "nazi" epithet at Israel - it does not illustrate the anti-semitism of doing so. a very subtle and effective piece of slander. wake up!
Nazi, huh? I find it rather odd and sad that people use the label of Nazi so frequently. I don't really think they understand what the Nazis did. It wasn't just a forcing of beliefs on people. It was terrorism in its highest form. It was brutally repressing all forms of self expression. It was killing people in the streets, humiliating them for sport, starving them, using them as slaves. Using the label of Nazi so loosely makes it lose all meaning in its historical context.
i'm quoting the dude above or below me
"It was terrorism in its highest form. It was brutally repressing all forms of self expression. It was killing people in the streets, humiliating them for sport, starving them, using them as slaves."
