Eminent Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer gets angry with Netanyahu's constant invocation of the genocide in justifying his Iran policy:
During the Nazi era, there was no consideration of the Jews as a genuine force. Today there is a consensus in the United States and Canada, as well as in Europe, that Israel's existence and security must be protected. True, this acknowledgment is not without its problems and may be incomplete, but 70 years ago it was completely absent. Could it happen again? Absolutely not, because Jews are no longer powerless…Today Jews have options, including military ones. The analogy is false, demagogic and infuriating, and it is more dangerous for us than it is for the Iranians.
