    The comparison is hateful. The circumstances were entirely different. The Jews were not vying for the extermination of the German state, nor did they kidnap German soldiers. Not that the whole population in Gaza is guilty of these things. But the Jewish state has a stratetig end in waging economic warfare against Hamas, in hopes that the population will eradicate their hold on the small patch of land. You may question the wisdom of this tactic, but comparing Israel's aim to that of the third Reich, which was set on eliminating any vestige of Jewishness in this world, is compleatly innapropriate and irrelevant.
