The worst comparison in the history of comparisons …

For some inexplicable reason the comparison of the Arab-Israel conflict to the problems in Northern Ireland keeps popping up again and again. I touched on this subject briefly before, but I haven't addressed it in great depth.

I think I'll leave it to others, probably smarter than I am and certainly better informed, to tackle this issue head-on.

There was a great refutation of the comparison in Slate, and the Z-Word blog has run several posts on the subject.

I have some more thoughts on this but so far not enough time to organize them.
