[Opinion] Exploiting the Holocaust to attack Israel is immoral
While anti-Semitism, in both the traditional religious forms and the modern version of anti-Israel hatred, is very different from Holocaust denial, the two forms of extreme and obsessive hatred are increasingly appearing together.
During the recent Gaza war, which was accompanied by particularly virulent ideological and political attacks on Israel and another flood of false allegations on war crimes, the most intense haters also invoked a form of Holocaust denial.
To defeat this immoral political warfare, it’s necessary to name and shame the perpetrates of both hard and soft-core Holocaust denial and denigration. Exploiting the Holocaust as a weapon to attack Israel and the right of the Jewish People to a nation-state like all others in particularly evil.
