  1. I think people should know the meaning of words they are using. Holocaust (with capital letter) is commonly used to describe the result of Nazi genocide of Jews. With all due respect to Palestinian Arabs, it must be stressed that their story is not a story of Holocaust, for never in their 60+ history have they faced a genocide. Instead, their population rose from 1.5 million in late 1940s to 5 million in 2009 in Israel and Palestinian territories only (in other words, in the “occupied” territories). So emotions aside, Nakba is not Holocaust, it is a great Palestinian trauma, which is historically and statistically a non-issue in comparison with most other conflicts of the 20th century (take as an example the human catastrophe in the wake of partition of India and creation of a Muslim state of Pakistan that took place in the same years as creation of the Jewish state of Israel).

      When 1 million people lose their land, their property, & some their lives & are expelled in the greatest injustice committed in the history of 20th cent. Israel & you say it’s a historical & statistical “non-issue?” Why when there is human suffering do people always attempt to say one tragedy is monumental but another doesn’t count? Why do you or anyone else do that? Would you say that if you were Palestinian? No, of course you wouldn’t.
