The best refutation of the worst of all Holocaust blather

When morons like Iain Banks lecture Israelis on why he is boycotting Israel, he uses this as a reason:

Of all people, the Jewish people ought to know how it feels to be persecuted en masse, to be punished collectively and to be treated as less than human.

Chas Newkey-Burden has the best response I have ever seen to this despicable argument:

Let us strip the “they-of-all-people” argument down to its very basics: gentiles telling Jews that we killed six million of your people and that as a result it is you, not us, who have lessons to learn; that it is you, not us, who need to clean up your act. It is an argument of atrocious, spiteful insanity. Do not accept it; turn it back on those who offer it. For it is us, not you, who should know better.
