No comparison

Powerline questions a column linking today's Syrian refugees with those Jews who tried to escape Hitler in the 1930s.
There are respectable arguments in favor of admitting 10,000 Syrians into the U.S. and respectable arguments against doing so (which I find more persuasive). Alleging bigotry against opponents of admitting Syrians is not a respectable argument, and neither is the specious comparison between contemporary Syrians and Jews fleeing the Nazis.
