To my non-Jewish friends,

The accusations that Israel is doing to the Gazans what the Nazis did to the Jews are reprehensible. They deny the depth of depravity represented by the holocaust, and at the same time attempt to turn the memory of the holocaust against its victims - the Jews. Accusations of this nature imply that the Jews, being no better than the Nazis, deserved the heinous crimes meted out to them by the Nazis and that the Jews of Israel deserve the same fate as the Nazis of Germany.

Such accusations are more than insults. They reduce the credibility of Israel’s non-Jewish critics and strengthen the resolve of the radical Islamists who seek to destroy Israel.

Non-Jews are, perhaps, less sensitive about these accusations. For this reason, I want to share with you an e-mail that is circulating among the world's Jewish communities. I thought its effectiveness would be enhanced if it circulated among the non-Jews.

Words can kill.

Sincerely,
Barry L. Werner

Dear Ms. Trine Lilleng,

You were an unknown Norwegian diplomat till this month.

No longer.

As first secretary in the Norwegian Embassy in Saudi Arabia, you recently sent out an email on your office account in which you declared: "The grandchildren of Holocaust survivors from World War II are doing to the Palestinians exactly what was done to them by Nazi Germany."

Accompanying your text were photos, with an emphasis on children, seeking to juxtapose the Holocaust with the recent Israeli military operation in Gaza.

Clearly, you are miscast in your role as a diplomat, all the more so of a nation that has sought to play a mediating role in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

In fact, you're desperately in need of some education.

Let's begin with your current posting. You've been in Riyadh since 2007.
