ABC: 400 Rabbis Demand End to Nazi Talk

ABC reported that 400 rabbis took an ad out to demand that people stop using Nazi comparisons.

The Other N-Word: Rabbis Unamused. Jewish Clergy Offended by Increasing Use of the Word Nazi to Bash Opponents

This is not a new phenomenon. Years ago Amos Oz in the beginning of his superb book, In the Land of Israel (1983, 1993) decried this rhetorical trend among the Jews in Israel of calling people you don't like Nazis.

The word is not sacred. It's not worth wasting money on a full page ad.
