I don't understand. Isreali soldiers

I don't understand. Isreali soldiers make a Palestinian man play his violin, seemingly to make sure he wasn't carrying a bomb, the scene gets videotaped, and now the Guardian has this quote:

Yoram Kaniuk, author of a book about a Jewish violinist forced to play for a concentration camp commander, wrote in Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper that the soldiers responsible should be put on trial "not for abusing Arabs but for disgracing the Holocaust

Disgracing the Holocaust? Have we completely lost the ability to differentiate between the victim and the victimizer?
