Letter to Muslims and Arabs about Holocaust

Dear Muslims and Arabs from around the world who are enraged about the situation in Gaza,

Whether I agree or disagree is not the point. The point is STOP COMPARING THE SITUATION IN GAZA TO THE NAZI HOLOCAUST. They are not comparable or similar. When you do so, you sound like a bunch of crazies with no legitimate claims.

Worse, when your leaders and professors make up lies about the Holocaust, or even when you publish lies about the Holocaust, you are doing a disservice to your own people as well as those who perished at the hands of their Nazi persecutors. How can anyone trust anything you say when you begin your argument with fictitious accusations?

Holocaust denial has caused more harm to the Muslim world than good. Your causes are viewed with little sympathy because you sound unreasonable and irrational.

Let’s start with the truth. Demand it from your leaders. Demand it for your teachers. Demand it from yourselves and then the conversation can go from there.

Until then, I don’t know how you can expect to get anything accomplished for the Palestinians from human rights to statehood.

I would tell you the article that I read that led to this posting, but the web site doesn't deserve the publicity and neither does the author.
