Elizabeth Warren says it is 'fair' to compare Israel's actions in Gaza to Holocaust

Speaking at Tufts University yesterday, Senator Elizabeth Warren cemented her position on the hard left by agreeing with a questioner that it is “fair” to compare Israel’s actions in Gaza to the Holocaust. Daniel Harper of The Weekly Standard picked up on the startling analogy and provided video:

“Eva Moseley, I’m not a student, I’m not an alumnae, but was in faculty life. I was also a Holocaust refugee and I’m extremely concerned that Jews don’t do to another people what was done to them,” said the activist.

“I think that’s fair,” Senator Warren responded.

Gee, I don’t remember the Jews of Germany promising to drive the Germans into the sea, nor do I remember them shelling Germans randomly.  One hundred percent of the aggression came from the Nazis, and the Jews, having been disarmed by Hitler’s gun control laws, were completely unable to fight back. So how on earth can any comparison be made with Israel attempting to halt the rocket attacks emanating from Gaza? It is so insane that it defies the imagination.

But Warren continued digging her hole, as Ms. Mosely continued her question:

“You recently said that you believe that Israel has the right to self-defense," the activist continued. "Do you also believe that the Palestinians have a right to self-defense?”

“Of course. So, and the answer is yes. The direction we ought to be moving is not toward more war. The direction we need to be moving, as I said, I believe we need to move to a two-state solution where both peoples can be secure and safe within their own borders. So, I’m there,” responded the senator from Massachusetts.

One side, Israel, wishes to live in peace, and would happily do so if Hamas (and Hezb’allah and the Palestinian Authority) would give up their mission to eradicate Israel. But the other side does not wish to live in peace with Jews. The stated goal is elimination of Israel. Until that changes, no peaceful coexistence is possible. That is the funadmanetal reality that Warren is oblivious to.

Warren continues to be the darling of the left wing of the Democratic Party, and although she has denied interest in running for president, is often spoken of as the great hope of the left. The idea that someone with such a twisted view of the Middle East could even be thought of for the office is appalling.
