Comparing Jews to Nazis? No problem, in the Guardian

The Guardian has sunk to a new low, publishing a piece by Marxist psychoanalyst Slavoj Zizek in which he accuses Israel of "ethnic cleansing"; justifies rocket fire from Gaza; says that calling Gaza "the greatest concentration camp in the world" comes "dangerously close to truth"; claims that Israel is slowly making the West Bank "Palestinian-frei"; and accuses Israel of obstructing peace "since 1949".

Oh yes, all this and so much more - all in one article!

For a good fisking of the article, see Honest Reporting here. But what I am interested in is the number of comments on the article which have been removed by the moderator, presumably because they cross some kind of boundary of good taste.

What exactly do you have to write in order to be censored when commenting on an article comparing Jews to Nazis?
