We need to stop this Nazi-PLO scourge, not wrangle over who thought up Genocide first

Reader comment on item: Ending a Century of Palestinian Rejectionism
in response to reader comment: Netanyahu on Hitler and Husseini

Hello, Peter

PM Netanyahu has made it clear that he in no wy exonerates the German Fuehrer for his actions. At its root, however, the Holocaust was murder; and it needs to be looked at as murder -- a crime in which there were principle actors and accomplices. Neither Hitler nor Husseini, as far as we know, ever killed a Jew; but they both had their hand in planning the mass murder; and as far as US legal thinking goes in such matters, they were all equally guilty.

HItler died for his crime long ago, through self-inflicted punishment. Hussein went unpunished, and so have his heirs, Arafat and Abbas. It is the latter error that is getting Jews and Arabs alike killed in Israel today. We need to right this terrible wrong, instead of wrangling over whether Husseini or Hitler hated Jews more, and which one came up with the idea of genocide first.
