My heart without a doubt goes out to the people of Gaza. Innocent people are being killed and their deaths were fully preventable, I understand this completely. Though I support Israel, I believe that violence from either side will only hinder the hopes of finding peace. HowFUCKINGever, if I see one more Facebook post, tweet, Instagram post, or text post that compares Operation Protective Edge to the Holocaust I will explode. How dare people make such a heinous comparison?! Before you make baseless claims like this, please do some research about the Holocaust and then explain to me how the mutual warfare between Gaza and Israel is comparable to Hitler’s attempted annihilation of entire religions and ethnicities. I understand everybody has different opinions about the conflict in the Middle East, but please do not trivialize one of the most significant and tragic parts of Jewish history.
