WHY SHOULD YOU LEAVE THE NAZI COMPARISONS OUT....:

Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel Compare Other Jews to Nazis (DINO GRANDONI, JAN 2, 2012, Atlantic)

[O]n Saturday, the ultra-Orthodox protesters took a different PR tact in the escalating tensions between them and other Israelis by offering AP and Reuter photographers the opportunity to grab incendiary pictures of Jewish boys dressed up in striped concentration camp uniforms emblazoned with "Jude" yellow stars (above) and a handcuffed boy meant to imitate a famous photograph from a Warsaw ghetto (below). And the firebrand Nazi comparisons understandably upset less religious Jews in Israeli. "We must leave the Holocaust and its symbols outside the arguments in Israeli society," Moshe Zanbar, head of a Holocaust survivors' group, told the AP. But getting the attention of the likes of Zanbar and other secular Israelis was the entire point of the protest. So whether or not the Nazi imagery was justified, it certainly worked.

...of a discussion where one side believes in racial sanctity?
