Fiskings'R'Us
Fellow blogger and author of the rightly feared Iron Fisk Technique™, Cato the Youngest , was kind enough to point my Oppressor Nose in the direction of the latest offering from the well known Ass of a Flatulent Goat, Edward Sa'id.

Sucks monkey butt for poor ol' Eddie that his inane gibberish was snatched up by MEMRI, those "Evil Translators From Hell", at least as far as the lying Islamofascists are concerned.

Let us delve into his latest analogy, but wear full NBC protection as you go:

Not content with the Jews having a monopoly on being erm... Jews, Edward decides that the Paleosimians are the Jews of the 21st century and that Sharon is just as bad as Hitler was, which is interesting, not only for the crass stupidity and gross inaccuracy of the claim, but also considering that the Arab world otherwise seems to be in full denial with respect to the Holocaust, much like our own al-BoreBot, although, in "Big Honest Al"'s defense, you might claim that he's just, well, stupid.

So, in short, Eddie-baby is comparing the Paleosimians' fate with something that, according to his Arab brethren, never happened. Another prime example that reality is only accepted in the Arab world when it suits their purposes.

He starts off by recollecting what happened to the Jews in Europe during the 30s and 40s, which is a first for an Arab author. Somebody call Guiness, please:
"Sixty years ago, the Jews of Europe were at the lowest point of their collective existence. Herded like cattle into trains, they were transported from the rest of Europe by Nazi soldiers into death camps where they were systematically exterminated in gas ovens. They had offered some resistance in Poland, but in most places they first lost their civil status, then they were removed from their jobs, then they were designated official enemies to be destroyed, and then they were."

"In every significant instance they were the most powerless of people, treated as insidious, potentially overpowering enemies by leaders and armies whose own power was far, far greater; indeed, even the idea of Jews representing a danger to the might of countries like Germany, France, and Italy was preposterous. But it was an accepted idea, since with few exceptions most of Europe turned its back on them during their slaughter..."
Holy Moses! Truth in Arab Media???

But don't worry, Eddie is just warming up.
"Every human calamity is different, so there is no point in trying to look for equivalence between one and the other.
...but there being no point in it doesn't mean that you shouldn't do it anyways, especially if you're a mouthpiece for the Islamofascists...
But it is certainly true that one universal truth about the Holocaust is not only that it should never again happen to Jews, but that as a cruel and tragic collective punishment, it should not happen to any people at all.
#1 on the "But-Count". And true, it shouldn't happen to any people at all, which is exactly why we're doing our damndest to prevent you Bloviating Bilge Basins from creating "Holocaust, the Sequel".
But if there is no point in looking for equivalence, there is a value in seeing analogies and perhaps hidden similarities, even as we preserve a sense of proportion."
Logic, Eddie-style (and hit #2 on the "But-Counter"). If there's no point in taking the full leap into the realm of the illogic, then surely there's value in opening the door and taking a peek inside?

And he then goes on to gaily throw the "sense of proportion" that he vowed to preserve to the four winds...
Israel Makes Arafat Feel Like a Hunted Jew

"Quite apart from his actual history of mistakes and misrule, Yasser Arafat is now being made to feel like a hunted Jew by the state of the Jews.
"Quite apart from every single misdeed he's ever committed, which is the real reason that he's now holed up in the Ruins of Ramallah"... Nice going, Eddie... If I'd been as Monumentally Ignorant as your intended audience, I might even have bought it for a second.
There is no gainsaying the fact that the greatest irony of his siege by the Israeli army in his ruined Ramallah compound, is that his ordeal has been planned and carried out by a psychopathic leader who claims to represent the Jewish people.
Quite to the contrary: There is nothing but "gainsaying", you Flatulent Fuckwit of Islamicism.

For one thing, there's not any evidence that Sharon is "psychopathic", at least not by any standards employed by actual psychiatrists, for another, he does not "claim" to represent the Jewish people, he was duly elected by it in an arcane Western process known to the civilized world as "democratic elections".

I know all of this is too much for you to squeeze into the space behind your sloping forehead, but I'll be gracious and wait while you scramble to get your dictionary, Eddie.
I do not want to press the analogy too far,...
Yes you do, and you already have.
...but it is true to say that Palestinians under Israeli occupation today are as powerless as Jews were in the 1940s.
...'cept the Jews never had a habit of blowing themselves up in German Kindergartens, but let's not dwell on facts, your articles would be shortened considerably if that was to become a criterion for being published in the Arab Press...
Israel's army, air force and navy, heavily subsidized by the United States, have been wreaking havoc on the totally defenseless civilian population of the occupied West Bank and Gaza strip..."
"Wreaking havoc"?

Boy, you ain't seen havoc, and you'd better pray that the Israeli never sink as low as your Pali buddies, or you might end up actually getting a taste of it!

And what is this thing about "totally defenseless population"? I suppose that the IDF's fallen just tripped over their own feet, eh? And all of those AK-47s that your Paleosimian friends are so fond of waving and firing off into the air are nothing but fakes, shooting blanks?

And not a word about the totally defenseless Israeli civilian population on buses, in schools, in kindergartens, in pizzerias and in discos that used to be blown up on a regular basis by your "harmless, unarmed, defenseless" Pali splodeydopes, right?
'Criticism of Israeli Policy is Equated by the Zionists and their Allies with Antisemitism'

And still Sharon makes the case that Israel is struggling to survive against Palestinian terrorism.
This quite possibly because that's exactly what they're doing.
Is there anything more grotesque than this claim,
Oh yes... Here's an example:

"Islam is Peace".
even as this deranged killer of Arabs sends his F-16s, his attack helicopters and hundreds of tanks against unarmed people without any defenses at all?... As popular protests grow worldwide, the organized Zionist counter-response has been to complain that anti-semitism is on the rise... Criticism of Israeli policy is now routinely equated by the Zionists and their allies with antisemitism of the kind that brought about the Holocaust..."

"What conclusion is one to draw from all this?
That you Loonies of the Levant still don't get it and that the clock is running out... Fast!
That Israeli policy has been a disaster for the entire region.
It's only been a disaster for the nations of the region that wish Israel harm, that would like nothing more than to fulfill Adolf's dreams of an "Endlösung" to the "Jewish Problem" and I honestly don't have a problem with them experiencing a bit of "disaster".
The more powerful it becomes, the more ruin it sows in the countries around it, to say nothing of the catastrophes it has executed against the Palestinian people, and the more hated it becomes. It is power used for evil purposes, not self-defense at all.
Only if you define self-defense as "evil", which you obviously do, at least when it's Jews defending themselves.
The Zionist dream of a Jewish state being a normal state like all others has come to the vision of the leader of Palestine's indigenous people hanging on to his life by a thread,
[Snippety-snip!] Heh...
while Israeli tanks and bulldozers continue to wreck everything around him. Is this the Zionist goal for which hundreds of thousands have died?... Isn't it time for those who feel that his [i.e. Sharon's] appalling actions do not represent them to call a halt to his behavior?"
They have, and it was an impotent squeak drowned out by the roar of rigtheousness.

Now go contemplate the future, Eddie, you haven't got much left of it...

UPDATE: Oh, and while we're at comparisons of today and WWII, "Infidel" has been kind enough to send me the link some real connections between then and now.

You've gotta love the picture of Yasser Arafat's uncle discussing the "Endlösung" with "Uncle Adolf". It's priceless, I tell you.
