    You can't really compare what happened then and now. Certainly the antisemitism in the Arab Media is bad and needs to be dealt with but it is unlikely to create a holocaust situation. Comparing this and the holocaust just weakens the memory of a truly horrific event. 1)In the 30's most of world judiasm was in Europe, whereas of today's diaspora, only a minority live in non Isreal ME. There could not be any under-the-radar mass roundup. 2)Isreal is backed militarily by both America and the EU, effectively the 2 largest superpowers on earth (note backing doesn't not mean totally uncritical support). Also, Isreal has the most technologically advanced military in ME, plus nuclear weapons. No military campaign would succeed. 3)Any nuclear attack on Isreal would, because of fall out and the fact that Isreal has a large Arab minority, kill more Arabs than Jews. That's not racism, that's just war. Just like the Americans and Russians in the cold war. Don't waste the memory.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
