"As the ICRC has stressed repeatedly, the dire situation in Gaza cannot be resolved by providing humanitarian aid. The closure imposed on the Gaza Strip is about to enter its fourth year, choking off any real possibility of economic development. Gazans continue to suffer from unemployment, poverty and warfare, while the quality of Gaza's health care system has reached an all-time low. "

Your analogy is of course flawed. As was previously stated the simple virtue of identifying as being Jewish does not allow you to monopolize terms such as concentration camp, holocaust, Semite, etc, etc.
You will be lumped in with Nazis, War criminals and the worst examples of humanity as long as you behave in a similar fashion.
We know this is hard to swallow for you who have enjoyed immunity from criticism for years by the papers and media outlets you have made concerted effort to own and control. But sadly the tide has turned and the jig is up fella. Everyone sees through your charade.
And try as you might you don't get to be the legislator of language. You are a Nazi and Gaza is a concentration camp and you are guilty of the worst crimes against humanity on the face of the earth.
You have become the monster you shrieked about. Interesting how that happened.
Now be gone silly fly. Back to your dwindling enclave colony stolen from Palestinians.

"worst crimes against humanity on the face of the earth"

"concentration camp"

"nazi"

Right...I think you need to study history and contemporary events. There are several ongoing genocides in the arab world that are far worse than the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Israel/Palestinian crisis is nowhere close to being the worst crisis in the middle east, let alone anyhwere near the worst one that has ever happened on the face of the Earth.

A non-comprehensive list of genocides commited by arab/muslim countries in the last 100 years:

Armenian genocide 1915-1918: 500,000-1,000,000 dead

Kurdish genocide in Iraq 1986-1989: 100,000 to 180,000 Kurds dead + 60,000-160,000 Shiites dead

Kurdish genocide by Turkey 1937-1938:
50-90,000 dead

Assyrian genocide in what is now modern day Turkey, Syria, and Iraq, 1914-1918:
750,000-900,000 dead

Darfur genocide 2003-ongoing:
300-350,000 dead

War in South Sudan, 1983-2005:
1-2,000,000 dead

Hmm...wonder why Israeli citizens are resistent to Hamas rule. Also, please show me any evidene of those kind of death rates in the Gaza Strip or the West Bank. To put things in perspective.

Second intifada:

4,281 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces or civilians since the beginning of the Second Intifada, 2,038 were civilians.

1,063 Isralis killed by Palestinians. Over 700 were civilians.

Given the extremely low proportion of Palestinian women killed in the conflict, it's likely the number of Palestinian civilians killed is far lower than reported. Either way a figure of 2000 civilians vs 700 civilians killed is hardly the worst one sided massacre the world has ever seen. In fact, given the military imbalance it shows extreme restraint.

There you again. Historical revisionism. Interesting how these Izzy's always repeat the same hackneyed propaganda. Also interesting that you mention non-Arab countries to back up your silly re-writing of history.
And so interesting that you fail to mention your own crimes against humanity. Closing in on nearly half-a million Palestinians murdered by you supposed peace-loving Jews.
I know it's a hard fact to face but it really is time for you to take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror here bubs.
You are a Nazi ol boy. Lets not forget your president Yitzhak Shamir and the Stern Gang who begged the Nazis to join the Third Reich as their Jewish outpost in Palestine. Lets not forget all the Jews of Europe who forged their robust business alliances with the Nazis while they were inventing "Israel" (ethnically cleansing Palestine.) Or your sick relationship with the Ottoman occupiers. This is historical fact and it's yet another example of you revising the events of history to suit your racist ideology.
As long as you do the bidding of the Jewish Establishment you will be generalized together. Your reputation is yours to clean not the rest of the worlds responsibility. Act like as Nazi and you will be called one. Repeatedly.
We all realize this deconstructs one of your favorite mechanisms for deflecting criticism, along with the old canard "antisemitism" and that you therefor must rail and rail against it or bear witness to your hastening demise. As you are witnessing even now.
Bye, bye "Israel."

half million Palestinians? No wonder you have the views you do. That's a totally fabricated figure and nowhere close to the truth. Please provide some kind of evidence to your claim.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_Israeli_Conflict

Lists the total number of people killed in the conflict at 15,000 (including several thousand Israelis). Only 6% of the Palestinians killed since 2000 were Female. Since civilians are equally likely to be female as male and the vast majority of combatants are male, this suggests taht the overwhelming number of Palestinians killed were combatants.

The Jordanians killed 20,000 Palestinians in Black September alone. That's more Palestinians killed than Israel has killed in all the years combined since Israel came into existence.

I include Turkey because they are located in the region and collaborate with arab regimes to massacre Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, etc..

While were on the topic of "ethnic cleansing", tell me what happened to the once flourishing Jewish populations acrosst the arab world. You know those Jews that had been living there since before arabs or muslims existed:
