  •  I wasn't holding you (0+ / 0-)

    responsible for others' words and behaviors, and I'm not calling you a hypocrite.

    What I'm saying is that from where I stand, which for better or worse is opposite of you, your words sound impotent given the reality of the situation.

    Ultimately, what you believe matters a lot less than what Israeli and American policymakers do. It doesn't matter that you wouldn't find fault with Damascus or Amman shooting at Israeli "gangs" (I wholly reject this framing but that's a different point) because the people with guns and microphones would.

    If the people one day wish to live / destiny cannot but respond / And the night cannot but disappear / and the bonds cannot but break. -- Abu'l-Qasim al-Shabbi
