Anyone who is causally making holocaust analogies

I will say this: I always resisted making holocaust analogies even when it came to Palestinian suffering. I was opposed to this tactic even while in Lebanon.  I don't belittle the suffering of Palestinians--or Syrians for that matter--if I stubbornly refuse to make holocaust analogies.  All those who casually made holocaust analogies about Aleppo are either 1) ignorant people who never bothered to educate themselves about the magnitude of the holocaust; 2) they have to be anti-Semites who basically internalized anti-Semitic narratives about the Nazi holocaust.  I am convinced of this.
