Professor Demands Israel Stop ‘Weaponizing The Holocaust’ To Justify Violence

via NBC

An Israel scholar and professor, Raz Segal, argued in The Guardian that Israel is “weaponizing” the Holocaust to justify its actions against Palestinians.

He criticized President Biden and Israel’s leaders for comparing the attack by Hamas to atrocities against Jews, claiming the context is different.

Segal accused world leaders of distorting reality by not considering Israel’s settler colonial violence against Palestinians. (Trending: Obama Says the Unthinkable to Israel)

“A powerful state, with powerful allies and a powerful army, engaged in a retaliatory attack against stateless Palestinians under Israeli-settler colonial rule, military occupation and siege, is thus portrayed as powerless Jews in a struggle against Nazis,” the professor complained.

The “Nakba,” meaning “catastrophe,” is a term that Palestinians use to describe the 1948 establishment of the state of Israel.

“No justice is possible, not in the short term and certainly not in the long term, without a truthful reckoning of how we got here,” Segal wrote. (Trending: Jimmy Kimmel Quietly Fired From Job)

“The fantasy of ‘fighting Nazis’ drives such explicit language, because the image of Nazis is one of ‘pure, unadulterated evil’, which removes all laws and restrictions in the fight against it. Perpetrators of genocide always see their victims as evil and themselves as righteous. This is, indeed, how Nazis saw Jews,” he wrote.

He also suggested that Israel is demonizing Palestinians in a way similar to how Nazis demonized Jews.

Some college campuses have seen anti-Israel activism following the October 7 attack, with professors and student groups blaming Israel for genocide.
