    Your idea of using quotation marks around "Israel" and "Israelis" is an interesting but it is liable to lead to endless pages and pages of boring messages about (1) anti-Semitism (2) Israel's right to exist even in its less illegitimate 1947 form and (3) the shoah. Being a Jew myself, I would prefer to apostrophize as it were the Jewishness of the so-called "Jewish" state inasmuch as Israel's religious leadership has as much to do with Judaism as breaking wind has to a good meal. To most Israelis the Ten Commandments is a movie or dvd and if they have heard of "Thou shalt not murder" they would understand it only to be a ban on killing fellow (right-wing pro-settler) Jews.
