    Thanks for this timely reminder to Israel's leaders that some critical self examination is long overdue. But I am propably too naive in thinking that. It is more likely that Israeli politicians are quite aware of what is going on and are engaged in cynical political calculations. It is embarassing to see the abuse of the memory of those who died in the Holocaust for political gain. That is why people will not shut up about what Israel has done and is still doing to Gaza and the Westbank.
