If "A Rose by Any Other Name Would Still Smell as Sweet," Then is it Nazi-like to Want Judea-Samaria aka West Bank Judenrein?

 reads: "This city is free of Jews"
One of the main principles of the Nazis was to cleanse Germany, then Europe and all it could conquer of Jews. The term they used was to make the land "judenrein," cleansed of Jews.
Judenfrei ("free of Jews") or Judenrein ("clean of Jews") was a Nazi term to designate an area "cleansed" of Jewish presence during The Holocaust.[1]While Judenfrei referred merely to "freeing" an area of all of its Jewish citizens, the term Judenrein (literally "clean of Jews") was also used. This had the stronger connotation that any trace of Jewish blood had been removed as an impurity.[2]
Here we are, less than a century after the Nazis' rise and fall, and it seems like the world has totally forgotten what really happened in Nazi Germany and Europe during World War II.  International leaders while preaching their superior morality sic are also insisting on making the Middle East judenrein. They don't see the similarity to Nazism in their statements nor in the demands of the Arabs.  No doubt there will be some very hysterical people telling me that I've gone "too far" writing so bluntly.

The American Secretary of State John Kerry is back in the area trying to force some sort of  "peace" agreement between Israel and the Arabs.  Not only is he ignoring the fact that the Arabs don't want peace with us.  They want peace without us.
"Let me emphasize at this point the position of the United States of America on the settlements is that we consider them... to be illegitimate," Kerry said after discussions with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Kerry made the comments in responding to Palestinian frustration over Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank and stressed that "at no time" did the Palestinians agree to accept the settlements as a part of a negotiated peace accord.
Neither Kerry  nor US President Barack Hussein Obama seem to find anything wrong with the fact that the Arabs want the Land judenrein. It's clear that they either don't care or don't know that such policy was a cornerstone of Nazi ideology.

And was Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu conned?
Palestinians have warned of a brewing crisis if Israel continues to assert that they had effectively agreed to turn a blind eye to the settlement campaign, in exchange for the progressive release of 104 long-serving inmates.
Kerry dismissed Israeli suggestions there had been an understanding with the Palestinians about settlement expansion and stated "unequivocally" his belief that Abbas was "100 percent committed" to peace talks.
"I want to make it extremely clear that at no time did the Palestinians in any way agree as a matter of going back to the talks, that they somehow condone or accept the settlements," he said.

Nazism may have been defeated in the Second World War but the poison of Jew-hatred it spawned has lived on.

The Arab position the Americans back is exactly the same one articulated by the Nazis - that the Jew is not a human being and has no right to live.

This is the "peace" the Arabs are offering Israel and I don't know why Israel's leaders are taken aback or that they ever expected the Arabs to somehow appreciate all the "painful concessions" the Jews made in the hope they would reciprocate.

That is not going to happen and peace is not in the cards with the other side. They want all the Jews gone, period. Whether the Israeli government will come to its senses remains to be seen.

When even Yair Lapid says Jerusalem is not up for negotiation, the writing is on the wall.

Norman, on the whole the Jewish People/leaders reacted incorrectly as the Nazis began their climb, and it doesn't look like the majority learned their lesson.

At the time no one imagined a civilized country like Germany would perpetrate genocide upon the Jews, so the Jews can be forgiven for not awakening in time to the danger that shadowed over their future.

In contrast, with Arab barbarism in evidence all around, Jews can see what a people does to each other, they will do to outsiders also. The Middle East is not a place for the meek and kind of heart - Jews must not let down their guard. There is no excuse in continuing to pretend peace is possible with a people who want to see them all dead.

Norman, I guess when it comes to Jewish victims, the world is blind and doesn't care.
