there is no comparison between Germans in Nazi Germany and Jewish Israelis. Neither Hitler nor Goebbels ever claimed that their version of Germany was 'the only democracy in Europe'. As a matter of fact, almost as many Germans died as a result of Nazi terror on the streets or in concentration camps as did German Jews, who made up less than 1% of the population. Most German Jews emigrated during the 30s, including to Palestine. The Holocaust happened during a brutal world war when everyone, including and especially Germany, was fighting for survival. Hardly compares to the situation in Israel over the past decades, if not century. If anything, the Germans put up a lot more resistance against the right wingers during the 30s than Jewish Israelis, from the general public to the highest ranks of the military, and at a much higher cost and risk to their own lives. For all their cries about living under threat, Israelis have enjoyed relative security and prosperity over long periods of time. Hence the apathy: we're doing fine, why should we care about the Palestinians? For a few years after the Nazis restored employment and performed an economic miracle mostly built on building up the armed forces, Germans felt the same. For Israel, it's 1938, and time to give up the Generalplan Ost which for Germans lay in the future at that point. Israel has been at it from the beginning.
