The state of Jacob does not need to defend itself from the outside it needs only to pay attention to from within, as a nation who its father the so called Ibrhim was selected by his GOD only to bless the other nations and not by bringing so much misery and suffering to the other nations and that was the message to be practice. And if it has so forgotten than the history of its own book than it needs so much reading to be reminded. The nation of Jacob had suffered and no one denied that but that is to be payimg attention to and to not add more suffering to someone else. Bur it seems that she is reapting what other nations done to her and doing it to the people. And to the writer please stop been so dehumanizer to those people by calling them mob pay attention to who are they and stop this kind of reduction to mere meaningless words. Whatever they had done it did not come from a vaccum and at the same I am no tryinh to justfy that but try to give some clear and precice reasons to why that happened no wonder you are doing the same thing and like many of the westren media and reapting the same story and reduction for people lived who has a long history just like the people of GOD. Mob, and what mob are u talking about?
