Tom Brokaw - "What Can The Israelis Learn From Your Visit to Buchenwald? And What Should They be Thinking About Their Treatment of Palestinians?"

Obama wisely quickly shoot that down.

Maybe Obama did not mean to equivocate the Holocaust to the plight of the Palestinians at his speech in Cairo (Berman Post: Obama Speaks in Cairo (Egypt)).

"Tom Brokaw ... asked Obama about his visit to Buchenwald on the Today Show this morning:

BROKAW: What can the Israelis learn from your visit to Buchenwald? And what should they be thinking about their treatment of Palestinians?

Unbelievable. Obama, to his credit, squelched the analogy:

OBAMA: Well, look, there's no equivalency here.

Jump to 4:00 to hear the exchange.
