I keep seeing these Facebook posts about how yeah, yeah, yeah the Nazis were terrible but you know who’s really terrible is Israel. Or Israel is just like the Nazis.
And I think to myself, really, in let’s say 100 years of history, the worst regimes in your mind are Nazi Germany and Israel? Like, honestly, that’s what all these people think?
Like, Hitler is at the top of the list and then Netanyahu and then after that maybe Stalin or Pol Pot or Mao or Pinochet or Charles Taylor or Mussolini or Rios Montt or Hussein or Kim Jong Il or Mobutu or Amin or Assad. I could go on; there’s a pretty long list of murderous dictators. But definitely the Israeli leadership is right up there ahead of those other guys, right after Hitler.
Why not just write “I’m super ignorant about world history” and be done with it?
