    Playing the holocaust card is getting tedious. The Syrians had nothing to do with the holocaust. They are involved in an extremely ugly civil war, which Israel is profiting from, as well as the extreme fear-mongering going on. Israel and the rest of the world have shown little humanitarian regard for the Syrians until now. The pucker factor is increasing in Israel, so it's time to roll out the old holocaust card. Spare us the feeble "we have to kill Syrians to save them" shtick, it's sickening. You cheapen the memory of the holocaust by suggesting punitive action on Syria will change the abhorrent equation on the ground in Syria. Israel may get it's wish, and Assad may be gone, only to be replaced by an even more evil group of thugs. Remember the Shah of Iran and Khaddafi, et al, and be very careful what you wish for. Playing "executive outcome" is pure cynicism.
