  •  It is not okay to make Nazi... (12+ / 0-)

    ...references about Israel, nor is it okay to call Palestinians Nazis. Not okay as in a violation of the rules. People have been and continue to be sanctioned to doing so. Sanctions can include banning for repeaters.

    As for "über alles," the German meaning, the history of the anthem, the modern version are irrelevant when the intent is clear. Everybody knows that "Israel über alles" isn't meant to do anything by equate Israel with the Nazis.

    There is, however, no rule against "going Godwin," in general.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

        with the Nazis, since we're getting into my intent, but to describe the third rail that is any even slight criticism of Israel in this venue. Any critical reference to Israel can bring down a gang pile-on of HRs just the way the gun lovers pile on any comment critical of guns. Somehow this site needs to find a way to end the gang activity.
        And speaking of site rules, aren't call-out diaries against site rules? And isn't this a call-out diary?

        If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

          ...not call-out diaries.

          Israel can be criticized here. And it often is.  Just not with Nazi references.
