'I am ashamed that I saw injustice and never did anything about it,' Reinhold Hanning tells German courtroom.01:17 30.04.16 | 1 comments
Dutch, you are ignoring your own double standard. You seem to single-mindedly focus on double-standards within Israel, while blithely ignoring that even more egregious double standards prevail within the Muslim nations around Israel. Maybe spend a moment examining the Saudi regime's discriminatory rules re: non-Wahhabi Muslims, and non-Muslims. Maybe ask why Palestinians are not allowed to buy land or obtain citizenship in Lebanon, or Jordan. The only way "Israel's friends" could - with any consistency - begin to praise Israel's Arab neighbors is, if in some beautiful, utopian future, those neighbors excelled Israel in granting religious freedom, freedom of speech, and implementation of due process. As imperfect as Israel is, that future remains a remote dream.
