in only the fact that the nazis used the best technology that science had to offer and cadavars became commodities. However it was not the only campaign to wipe a nation off the Earth. Armenians come to mind, and leafing through the history books Carthage becomes a fact, the first documented genocide aimed at wiping out an entire people. We comemmorate the memory of the Holocaust in January as a way of placating Israel that we are not rampant anti semites, and we teach our kids about it to justify the bombing campaigns against german cities. Face it, it is a good counter against charges we committed genocide. However, and herein lies the rub the constant referral to the Holocaust by Netanyahu is making it acceptable to compare Israel with the nazis. Which shows that hiding behind the corpses of 6 million dead has lost it's affect to silence Israel's critics, and is now used to cow Israelis into submission as politicians scream existential threat.
