ABSTRACT
The author asserts the lack of basis for making a comparison between the hardship of Palestinians under the Israeli occupation and suffering of the Jews in the holocaust. He emphasizes that Israeli occupation encourages the act of making such comparison. He mentions the reasons behind the aggression of Nazi against European Jews, which he claimed have been accepted by Israeli society, including the desire for expansion of the country's borders through force, a sense of superiority and lack of concern for the suffering of people.
