An intelligent rebuttal to an extraordinarily selfish argument

Remember a couple of weeks ago when British Muslims urged Tony Blair to cancel Britain's Holocaust Day because it fairly highlighted the suffering of dead Jews (apparently Britian should have been celebrating the dead Jews). I found this so disgusting, I couldn't muster the will-power to attack it intellectually. And now I don't have to. At Neo-Neocon, there is a brilliant post about why the Holocaust is indeed different from all other murderous wars or genocidal attacks. Neo begins with a post by Norman Geras examining precisely that question, and then adds her own thoughts. Both posts are, in my estimation, must reads.
