    No of course you don't: because it is obviously wrong and immoral, and if you need someone to point that out to you in order for you to understand it then you may just be beyond saving. On the other hand we have a bunch of... challenged people who advocate for an Israeli policy of killing, dispossessing and dehumanizing Palestinians. And when those people profess this likewise immoral view and argue that this is just fine because Israel is powerful, the Palestinians have it coming or whatever rationalization they like to use that may very well lead people to advocate against said Israeli policy. And when that happens you should try to understand that it is perfectly acceptable for someone to criticize Israel for its atrocities without first having to criticize every other atrocity. And for the record I too am very happy not to be you.
