Description

In the past weeks, headlines around the world have focused on the violent conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. In this favorite episode from our archive, we hear from a former Israeli soldier and a Palestinian man who asked a radical question: what happens when you empathize with your enemy?  They found that showing such empathy can be powerful — but also carries risks.

I don't see any correlation of the so-called "nakba" to the Holocaust. In the Nakba, the Arabs lost their homes. In the Holocaust the Jews lost their lives. No. The Holocaust is a unique calamity in the history of the world. Moreover, the Arabs (to a large extent) initiated the Nakba on their own people. The Jews did not initiate the Holocaust, as some holocaust deniers would have us believe. And what about the Jews - like my in-laws - in Muslim nations that lost their homes and were expelled or left their host countries at the same time as the Nakba (and resettled in Israel)? No mention of that here, even though the number of people affected was similar to the Arabs displaced in their Nakba. A comparison of these two population exchanges would be a more appropriate comparison, and frankly would cancel each other out. The difference is the Jews built a fantastic country and got on with their lives, while the Arabs remain largely in squalor and thrive on the welfare of others and play the victim card, which is getting rather boring.
