Would you say the same to an American father? I think I can safely say that not only I but most Americans would be sickened if you did. Before you start the usual nonsense about how different the situation of Americans is, I suggest you read, just for starters, Collateral Damage: America's War Against Iraqi Civilians, by Chris Hedges and Laila Al-Arian and Inside the Resistance, by Zaki Chehab. But, no, you will not find me adopting the simplistic dualities that you do for Israelis and Palestinians in response to the horrifying wrongs inflicted on Iraqi civilians. As Orwell pointed out, there is no good versus evil when it comes to modern nation states, but I think the US and Israel are basically good.
