Olmert seen to be playing Nazi card once too often
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has argued that Ahmadinejad, with his Holocaust denials and calls for the elimination of the Jewish state, "speaks today like Hitler before taking power".

Olmert's Homeland Security Minister, Avi Dichter, urged the West to consider Iran's nuclear ambitions and "imagine how World War II would have turned out had Nazi Germany gotten the bomb".

.......

"In Israel, likening someone to a Nazi in theory creates both legitimacy for attacking him and a moral imperative to do so," said Ami Ayalon, a retired Navy admiral who is now a senior member of Parliament's Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee. "But when it comes to a complex strategic issue like Iran, our leadership is liable to talk itself into a corner," he said.

"I say: If you're going to shoot, shoot. Don't talk."

2. Stress the "in theory"
if that was true in fact, we would have already undergone a civil war, as ISTR more than one politician despicable enough to use that particular slur against his rivals.
