    -I will do so against people who invent a special moral codex for Jews alone, and who are calling for the destruction of the Jewish State - Well, I try to read every post in the threads I participate in, but my impression is that the majority of posters are using the forums to restate ad infinitum, varying syntax and phrasing, the message that Israel is unders massive assault from anti-semites in the West, and 1.5 billion Arabs. Every forum starts with an article, whose content is lost sight of as familiar and new names bicker bitterly about Israel. Aby Warburg loved the dictum, -Der liebe Gott steckt im Detail- Here the discreet point of every argument is broken on the back of pro-Jewish/anti-Jewish. The effect is mind-numbing. I too would berate those who require of Israel a special moral code. But please look at the many Zionist posts here that claim a special moral dispensation for Israel against international law, and even common humanity.
