    perfectly.

    But there is fellating of the IDF in this diary and it has to be shown that all is not well in that organization, nor in the government where two ministers have made despicable statements the last couple of days.

    •  There is a reality (4+ / 0-)

      in this situation that belies simple characterization.  There are extremes but I really think the way to fight them is to keep focused on the reality.  The occupation hurts regular Israelis, it's bad for Israel and cannot be sustained.  The occupation is a crime and a tragedy of enormous proportions for the Palestinians, goes without saying.  

      The political situation on both sides is a mess.  One side has the money and the military power, and yes, there are some truly awful attitudes on the right in Israel that are morally reprehensible and inexcusable.  

      It's a soul splitting tragedy for everyone involved.  Israel is destroying itself in the act of "self preservation".  

      Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!

        and hope that it turns out to be false.

        If you believe that ALL criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're an idiot.
        If you believe that NONE of the criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're a fool.
        If you call EVERYONE who criticizes Israel antisemitic, you're just an a$$hole
