better treatment of  Palestinians by Israelis, wouldn't the Holocaust

Paul Stone:

"It would be, IF that was WHY the people were objecting to this link.
But it doesn't seem to be the case."

People were objecting because they were offended.  I merely pointed out
that the situation wasn't nearly as bad as it was being portrayed.
However, if 'the people' enjoy their knickers tied in knots, well, each
to their own.  Personally, I find this moral posturing tiresome.
