Let's make it clear: 6 Mio. Jews paid an even more horrendous price for the Holocaust than the Palestinians, no question about that, but victims they are both. Yes, it's true, Zionism didn't start in 1945, and there is a good chance (though no guarantee) that Israel would even have been established without the Holocaust happening in Europe. But one thing is also certain: Without the Holocaust happening, the world (especially Europe) would have taken a very different stand against Israels continued occupation of Palestinian land. Israel would have faced sanctions and diplomatical isolation at least a decade ago. And that is the reason, why the Palestinians have also the right to call themselves "victims of the Holocaust".
