Bauman is comparing the current Israeli government to the government of Nazi Germany, and wishing for Israel to see that it is reenacting the cycle of violence perpetrated against the Jewish people onto the Palestinian people. The metaphor is not easily lost on those of us who have visited the West Bank and who are well-versed in Holocaust history. Seeing the wall around the Palestinian towns in the West Bank and Qalandiya check point immediately had me reflecting on the Nazi treatment of the Jews in Poland. It's just excellent that a Jewish professor is seeing the same thing that Christians and Muslims easily see when visiting the Occupied Territories.
