Andrew Gets It

What is it about contemporary Islam that seems to make it clearly incompatible wih Western freedom of speech? In that may lie the answer to the most pressing question facing the West today: the illiberal, fanatical religious enemy within.
Even though I pick on him I admire his moral clarity and willingness to write about controversial subjects. But why does he have to keep bringing Hitler into every discussion of the Arab-Israeli conflict?
Here are some other cartoons recently printed in the Arab, Muslim press. They are no different than Nazi propaganda in their unvarnished anti-Semitism.
Isn't this conflict complicated enough without dragging the Third Reich into it? Or is Andrew seriously suggesting that the anti-Semitism of Nazi Germany and Arab dislike of Israel are closely linked?
