My answer to How does what Nazi Germany did to Jews compare to what Israel is doing to Palestinians in Gaza?
Answer by Desmond Last:
It is 71 years after WW2. Yet we are still killing children. Israel has bombed Gaza and killed children.
What have we learned? Not just Israel, but also the Coalition in the Middle East, the African Governments who allow children to die, and Putin who supports Assad and the bombing of Aleppo.
The Blockade is illegal. Saying it is to stop the shipment of arms as an excuse does not make it legal.
The people of Gaza have a right to be treated as human beings. A right in law. A right to the laws of human rights which is enshrined in the history of Israel.
Why is not a right for the people of Gaza?
If there is a comparison to be made it is this. We must apply the rights that have been fought and died for by so many, to all of us. Not just when it suits our Governments and Military.
Out of WW2 and the deaths of millions of Jews, and so many others, came the International Convention of Human Rights. It does not allow the Blockade nor the killing of civilians.
If there is one people in our World who should be leaders by example of how to live in Peace, and how to achieve that Peace, it is Israel. The angry words of Islam extremists against Israel must be ignored. Jew and Muslim live in peaceful co-existence all over the world. Israel must take the lead by removing the blockade.
Hamas too has to take blame. There are solutions to the situation in Gaza that do not require the killing of Israelis.
I sent Hamas a proposal for a Peace process in Gaza. They never replied.
Gaza and Israel will not live in peaceful co-existence by killing each other.
Israel must move forward with the tragic history of the Holocaust as its guide.
