The goal of an Arab-free Israel is often compared to the Nuremberg laws. There were two relevant laws, widely different in sense and consequences. The law for the protection of German blood said substantially the same thing that the rabbis have taught for centuries: no intermarriage or intercourse with Jews. The law was never strictly applied to thousands of existing intermarriages. Even the sanctions it introduced weren’t draconian compared to Jewish views. Rabbis opened to intermarried couples the door of conversion, while racial-minded Germans lacked that option; rabbis lacked the power of state apparatus and could not inflict punishment for intermarriages, while the Germans could afford to consistently enforce their policy. The Nuremberg law prohibited Jews from sporting German flags; rabbis taught us to keep the scrolls of Torah away from Gentiles.

Another relevant Nuremberg law in practice stripped Jews of German citizenship, though it retained for them the status of nationals, essentially resident aliens. That’s mild compared to our goal of transferring Israeli Arab citizens to Jordan. In theory, the Reich’s citizenship law did not take away the existing German citizenship, but introduced a class of supra-citizens. Not only were Jews barred from that new caste, but so also presumably were most Germans who could not prove their faithful service to the state.

Germans, the core nation of the land, had every right to demand that Germany be free of Jews—for no particular reason but because the Germans consistently, throughout history, have disliked the Jews. People cannot be forced to live with hated spouses, much less with hated nations. Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, and Lithuanians hated Jews. The Jews should have moved to Palestine, Uganda, or even Madagascar and formed a state there rather than imposing their Jewish presence on their resentful hosts. Now, the Jews demand that Arabs be moved out of Israel; relocation is preferable to accumulating hatred.

The Nazis committed crimes enough to burn in hell forever. There is no need to demonize the Nuremberg laws.
