All too often in recent public discourse in Israel, criticism of the state?s actions tends to be equated with an existential threat. I am not saying the present author is doing this, but it has been happening far too often of late, and it is not in Israel?s interests. When the terms ?anti-Semite? and ?enemy of Israel? are bandied about on a regular basis for anyone who criticizes Israel?s actions ? and what state does *not* get criticized for its actions? ? they become devalued, and we no longer have terms serious enough for the parties who really do endanger Israel. We put ourselves in the position of crying wolf, and then we wonder why the real threats are not seriously.
