Natziism and Zionism

These words are close enough to being an anagram - as close as the behaviour of the Israelis towards the Palestinians is to the way the Natzis treated the Jews - as close as Gaza is to the Warsaw Ghetto. Fintan O'Toole said it best in yesterday's Irish Times:

Read it and weep for Israel. His key point is the fundemental racism of Israel's position. One Israeli life is worth fifty (or so) Palestinian lifes - they are expendable untermenschen to the Israeli ubermenschen.
