9. Germany wanted adjacent land to the east for Germans to live in and occupied that land

Bibi also wants adjacent land to the east for Israelis to live in and Israel has occupied that land.

Obviously Israel and Nazi Germany are alike in almost no ways. But also obviously they have both occupied land to the east of their countries intended as living space by the Germans and clearly desired by Bibi as living space for Israelis.

That Bibi desires something similar to what the Nazis wanted makes me sad. Not that Bibi shares any other desires the Nazis had, obviously. Doesn't it make you sad too?

I am not the only one made sad by this unfortunate turn of events. Most who wish Israel well are saddened by Bibi's obvious aversion to a negotiated settlement. Most who wish Israel well think Bibi's desire to expand Israel into occupied territories will delay if not prevent a peaceful and just solution.

Hopefully we are wrong and Bibi is right, since Bibi's way will come to be. But sadly I see the expansion of Israel to include the occupied territories, which seems Bibi's goal, as a mistake.

It didn't work before, it caused almost all the world to be repulsed. If you look at UN votes that part of the equation seems to be the same this time as well. You can't deny that. It's a sad fact.
