Many left-wing Israelis are afraid to criticize Europe for fear of loosing various prizes and invitations, or that moneys would go away. Where was Israeli left criticism at the time Kosovo bombing? What about Gypsies ethnic cleansing - here again our Israeli left is mute. Minaret law in Switzerland? Total silence. Burqa law in France? Here they even support it for "women rights" - Imagine if Netanyahu would be the first to propose a Burqa law in Israel... as if the left here would have supported him. There's nothing like the remote prospect of winning some European prize to make certain Israelis forget they are Jews.
