But to describe Germany as "a Nazi state", when it was, wouldn't have implied "an obligation to remove" the Germany state, but rather a hope to see it change into something better, into something worthy of the wonderful German traditions and culture which it had betrayed in so many ways.

Saying that doesn't mean I'd describe Israel as a Nazi state - but I would see it as something pretty close in some ways to "an apartheid state" which would evidently still be classified as an anti-semitic comment by some people (viz bodad's last post).
