Uh... we don't. As far as I know, I don't think anyone has actually posted a picture of the Holocaust before. Not that I'm saying it hasn't happened, but I haven't noticed it yet. I can at least say that you are in the wrong for generalizing this as a rule, since (despite this specific account's age) I've been coming to this forum for years and know that's not what usually happens. It's even rare for the Holocaust to be invoked, much less shown. Of course, the Holocaust IS ethnic cleansing, not only in regards to Jews but also other groups like the Roma. I won't argue that Israel is always in the right; however, it is INCORRECT to say that Israel's official or actual policies are in favor of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. That was NEVER Israel's goal. For starters, statistically a large percentage of Palestinians left in 1948 because they thought the Jews were going to be wiped out/forced to leave/killed, and didn't want to get in the cross fire. In other words, not only did they leave on their own accord (not Israel's) but were anticipating the ethnic cleansing of the Jewish people. And, yes, the rhetoric of the Arab forces at that time were distinctly calling for the removal of the Jews, and Israel's rhetoric was build our nation, with no mention of destroying the other state they expected nor kicking out those Arabs within their boarders. It should be clear now that, inside of Israel today, ethnic cleansing arguments fall flat. Considering how well integrated many Arabs can become, if they chose, with Israeli society, I can say that Israel does not have this attitude with their actions. With the West Bank and Gaza, too, where they hold less power than you seem to imagine. I do point out that the increasing Palestinian population, and the rate at which it does so, indicates that if they were trying to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians, they are doing a half-@ssed job. Israel doesn't do things half-assedly. Just food for thought. I will like to point out that, if Israel were ethnically cleansing the Palestinians, then I have to call attention to the job the Arab and Muslim world has done concerning their Jews. Israel's retention rate of Arabs is SIGNIFICANTLY higher than the rate of the Arab world on it's Jews. Many communities are extinct or soon will be, with the people who used to make up those communities long gone into other nations. Israel is cited as one of the greatest immigrant absorbing nations out there, and the Mizrahi Jews play no small part in that number. Libya's Jews are no more, Syria has less than 100, Lebanon perhaps less than that, and Iraq's last time I checked was 10. Yemen has 200 estimates (on a good day) when it used to have many more zeroes, and Egypt's, like many already mentioned, is aging and will probably all die out within the next few decades. The highest figure in Iran's favor is 10% today what it used to be at Israel's founding, and is projected to be less. In comparison, Israel's rate of retention concerning Arabs is astonishingly high. These figures conclude that you can't really deny the ethnic cleansing of the Jews in the Arab world, so I do have to make the criticism that those who denounce "Israeli ethnic cleansing" often don't look at these figures since it actually makes Israel a hero for that story.
