The reason our friends are first nudging us and, when that doesn't work, bashing us is largely because at the first sign of justified and well-intentioned criticism, we thump them. The Jewish Judge Goldstone is suddenly an anti-semite, Israel's most powerful allies, ditto Muslim Turkey and Christian USA. Are you saying that only those who ignore our faults, tell us we're gorgeous even when we know we are not, are our friends or what? Do you bring up your children that way? Peres was not humiliated, our country was humiliated by its leaders and not by Mr. Erdogan. It is untenable to end up killing 1,400 people, mostly civilians, and maiming for life many times that figure, in a campaign against a largely unarmed entity already under siege and thus with nowhere to run to, without holding an independent inquiry into what went wrong.
