    Those responders have a point who say that the sins of other countries do not absolve Israel for its misdeeds. But on the hand the unbalanced avalanche of venom towards Israel is unforgivable. For example, the Israeli-Palestinian wars/conflict have claimed about 8000 Palestinian and 3000 Israeli lives. There have been over 700 condemnations of Israel by the UN. How many of the Palestinians? 0!!! You can say what you want about Israel but the Palestinians have long history of despicable and indiscriminate violence against anybody who happens to be in the way. Not a peep from the world. What about Syria? There have been 5 times as many people killed there in 2 years than in 65 years of Israel/Palestine conflict. As a Jew I am outraged by the world's hypocrisy. Until there is a modicum of fairness I will support the opinions of people like Mr, Shia with all its flaws. Let the world get off its 'attack Israel' addiction. Let's see the real abusers condemned once in a while. Your smug hypocrisy makes me sick.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, February 16, 2016.

If Merkel also criticizes Israel, life is not a piece of cremeschnitte

The Israeli reaction to Der Spiegel's report on the German chancellor's frustration with Netanyahu was ridiculous, even Orwellian; as if Israelis were aliens who had just landed from another planet.

Boycott is the only way to stop the Israeli occupation

Aluf Benn's proposal for Israel's left to establish a base of domestic support for its positions is hopeless considering the brainwashing and increasing extremism of our society.
