That kind of rationale could have been taken almost word-for-word from something I would have expected to read about Germany in the economic malaise of the 1920s under the Weimar Republic and in the 1930s under National Socialist Party (the Nazis).
The term they would have used was Untermenschen.
If Israel had been over-run by the Arabs because they didn’t have a high enough proportion of able-bodied, the Israeli Jews really would have found themselves being treated like ‘Untermenschen’ all over again...
When facing the kind of total annhilation Israel was facing at that time, they had no choice but to be pragmatic and realistic....
The Eichmann Trial was a turning point in how Israel looked at the Holocaust. A lot of Israelis who came to Israel before the War and fought for her independence resented Holocaust survivors because of the perception that they didn’t fight back against the Nazis.
When the Eichmann trial was televised and Israelis heard the testimonies of the horrors the survivors endured, the attitude towards them changed. Meir’s policy would not have had nearly as much support after that.
This is exactly the kind of vile statement I would have expected from someone who has spent years at Free Republic making similar ugly comments about Jews. In making this comparison it is you in fact who is acting like the Nazi and in the worst possible way.
