He drew a moral equivalency between the doctrines and actions of Nazi Germany and of the Jewish state. A state in which many Knesset members and ordinary citizens bore tattoos from Nazi death camps. A state in which many people, including this man, had lost loved ones to starvation, disease, firing squads, gas chambers or unspeakable "medical experiments." For a Jew to say, "What you're doing is no better than what the Nazis did to us" was shocking. It made any valid points hard to discern or accept, even though that gentleman was making an appeal to his nation's conscience. He saw what he believed were serious breaches of morality. For better or worse, he used an extreme example to get his fellow countrymen to think about who they were. I don't think he was trying to tear down, silence or simply shame them.
