Palestine and Syria

I am not in favor of mixing or comparing human tragedies.  Its situation has its uniqueness.  Just as I never favored invoking Nazi analogies regarding the Palestinian question (although there are clear German and Italian nationalist tendencies in the thought and practices of revisionist Zionist and writings of Vladimir Jabotinsky who favored the definition of nationhood through "its racial recipe"), I don't understand the need to compare the Syrian tragedy to Nakbah.  Unless the purpose is to minimize or even absolve the Zionists of their crimes.
