    if the Israeli Government started bombing it's own people? Headlines, "Sick Jews commit Genocidal acts against their own". "The UN should invade", "We should never have given the Jooz their own country" "Jooz are a warlike race so we should "Nuke Israel" "Destroy the Zios" "Meanwhile most of us sit in disbelief that a common ground can't be found on which to build Peace. The Antisemitic scum will blame Israel and perhaps this is why some of us point out the hypocrisy behind condemning the Israelis for their war with the Palestinians while remaining silent at the prospect that many more than 60,000 Syrians, mostly Muslims will die in this most useless of wars. Some will also say two wrongs don't make a right but will refuse to condemn Assad because he is Muslim. For myself I have never hated anyone enough to want to kill them. I was not brought up to believe in vengeance or Superiority of one tribe against another or that one sect is better than another. The Racist myth that Jews are a light unto nations and that we are somehow chosen is just that, a Myth and the very same can be found through centuries of the persecution of Black people. Hence, "Black is beautiful" but unless you have direct experience of this persecution you will never understand. Now the Syrians are the victims and I think they deserve a better World than one which turns it's back on them in their hour of need.
