Tabriz that page now says "suspended account" interesting eh...

I think that you can see it replicated here: http://www.ijtema.net/2009/01/19/holocaust-survivors-from-wold-war-ii-make-holocaust-in-gaza-pictures/

Photos from Nazi Germany next to Photos from today.

Indeed a picture is worth a thousand words.

Assalamy alykum,

That account was suspended for a while. But it's up and running now.

Thanks for the alternative.

i looked at the pictures and they show only superficial similarities.

bring me pictures of gas chambers and people being killed like cattle in an abattoir and then you can say there are real similarities.

Salaams,

I searched around to find something which can bail lucid out.

But instead I found this:

Quote
hol·o·caust      (hŏl'ə-kôst', hō'lə-)  Pronunciation Key
n. 

   1. Great destruction resulting in the extensive loss of life, especially by fire.
   2.
         1. Holocaust The genocide of European Jews and others by the Nazis during World War II: "Israel emerged from the Holocaust and is defined in relation to that catastrophe" (Emanuel Litvinoff).
         2. A massive slaughter: "an important document in the so-far sketchy annals of the Cambodian holocaust" (Rod Nordland).
   3. A sacrificial offering that is consumed entirely by flames.

[Middle English, burnt offering, from Old French holocauste, from Latin holocaustum, from Greek holokauston, from neuter of holokaustos, burnt whole : holo-, holo- + kaustos, burnt (from kaiein, to burn).]
hol'o·caus'tal, hol'o·caus'tic adj.

People did actually use that word for massacre in Cambodia! Hmm... so a stronger argument for not calling Palestinian carnage a "holocaust" could be that its a translated word from hebrew and perhaps should only be used for Jews burnt in masses?

Salaams,
-The devil's advocate.

In Zeitun, a massacre and its perpetrators desire for genocide

"They left behind their own unique detritus: bullet casings, roasted peanuts...But most disturbing of all was the graffiti they daubed on the walls of the ground floor... Some was in Hebrew, but much was naively written in English: "Arabs need 2 die", "Die you all", "Make war not peace", "1 is down, 999,999 to go", and scrawled on an image of a gravestone the words: "Arabs 1948-2009". "

Rory McCarthy reports for the Guardian....

I encourage everyone to read this blog for frequently updated news/analysis/personal stories from Palestine. The author of this blog is an activist and a journalist who lives in the US but whose immediate family is in Gaza. This journalist and her father were frequently interviewed during the war on Gaza on CNN, etc. This is a good site for first-hand information coming out of Palestine as well.

Please refrain from making any personal remarks about people. I've removed the posts in this thread which were insulting other users. Let's stick to the topic. Jazaks.
