Having grown up a fervent supporter of Israel and all I believed it stood for, I have sadly become fervently anti-Israeli. The change has come over the last 40+ years as a result of watching Israel degenerate into something morally reprehensible. To speak of Israel as a ghetto is not accurate. They have created a ghetto in both Gaza and the West Bank. Their treatment of the Palestinians does have parallels to how they were treated by the Germans. I have noted that whenever those parallels are mentioned, the response is vehement. However, to confine a people to a specific area, control their movements, food supply, even humanitarian aid, to have collective punishment for an entire people, to assassinate at will without due process, is, to my mind and the minds of many others, the Warsaw Ghetto updated. I fear they have identified with their aggressors. Israel, has lost the moral high ground. At last someone from there has pointed that out. Thank you.
