    "First, why would it be worst than, say, the millions killed in Russia during the Stalin regime, or the millions killed in Cambodia during the regime of Pol Pot?" - mark Or the tens of millions who died in the Taiping Rebellion? The Holocaust was cold blooded murder, much like Pol Pot's Killing Fields. The Holocaust was a methodical implementation of a quite popular belief, often called a 'science', of the late 19th and first half of the 20th century. Eugenics.

"Second, fair-minded people throughout the world have never understood the idea of Jewish exceptionalism." - mark I don't believe in it either. Rather I understand that every group, nation, family, and even cell mates have the smug idea that they are a bit exceptional in the back of their minds. I don't think you comprehend what a horror the Holocaust was and how many lives it touched.
