Response to Intolerable Holocaust Comparisons

While I understand and respect that people have strongly differing opinions regarding Israel and Hamas's recent actions in Gaza, I find it intolerable for people to compare these circumstances to those of the Holocaust. Such comments minimize the realities of the Nazi concentration camps and are an insult to the millions who died, as well as the survivors who are still with us.

I agree that we must find a way to end the violence that haunts both sides of the conflicts in the Middle East, but third party commentators who detract from the atrocities of the Holocaust are not helping the situation.
