Comparison between Zionism and Nazism

  • We must develop the technology of depopulation" Hitler declared; "nature is cruel, that is why we can be cruel as well". The Zionist leaders who adopt a policy of extermination and "cleaning of the new lands for greater Israel by sweeping the Arabs out to the desert and by killing as many as they could of them are the same as Nazis and act in the same way"?
    Aref al-A., Israel is a Rogue State According to US Concepts"
    Syria Times, August 20, 2003

  • The Israeli Zionists of today represent the most explosive form of neo-Nazism. Like Nazis, the Zionists employ theories of "race purity". Zionists take their "duty" to populate the so-called "greater Israel" seriously as did the Nazis in settling Germans in conquered areas of Poland, from which the inhabitants were deported. Zionist crimes are a prototype of the Nazis. If the nazi- butchers could inspect the concentration camps built by the Zionists for the Arabs and if they examine the Zionist practices against the Palestinian people they would have every ground to say that they were being completely imitated. The nazis claimed in their time that mankind could not develop normally without bloodshed. The Zionists of today are repeating the sinister Nazi slogans and committing the same crimes. . .

    . . .Most of the European governments keep silent about them. But if any government criticizes these practices or denounces them the Israelis resort to the scarecrow of the myth of anti- Semitism and accuses it of being anti-Semitic it is used as a huge club ready to fall on the heads of those who dare to criticize or condemn Israeli crimes and atrocities against the Palestinian people. The myth of anti-Semitism is an absurd slur used as an apologia for Israel's brutal war of subjugation in the occupied territories. Even the media coverage that criticizes Israel's criminal practices in Bethlehem, Nablus, Ramallah, and Gaza became a target of Zionist propaganda accusing it of anti-Semitism...
