Its clear that the government and leadership of israel over its short existence is one of t he most clear cut examples of racism, facism and hatred ever witnessed. While numerically it falls far short of the atrocities commited by Hitler and the Nazi's, It is clear that the state of Israel was established through ethnic cleansing and genocide and continues to exist illegally and make a mockery of international law. Many statements by zionist and then israeli leaders prove this. Zionist leaders in fact first brought terrorism to the palestine in the 1930s and 40s. Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin in fact is proven to have mastered the prince david hotel bombing on the british mandate government, an bombing that hamas bombers would envy. Statements like these confirm the genocidal(via definition in international convention) intentions of israel and support the fact that the palestinians have been systematically ethnically cleansed. "There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" -- Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp. 121-122.
