I too have noticed how much the attitude towards Israel has changed. Especially here in Australia and also New Zealand. A few years ago any criticism of Israel was always softened by comments that Israel was in a life or death struggle and having to behave out of character. Today, people seem to have lost respect for Israel and her leaders. Instead there is growing contempt for Israel and her best friend the USA. I personally used to hope that the Israeli 'man in the street' would rise up and steer Israel back on the road of respecting all people regardless of their faith or race.Not an easy road,but one that does lead to a better future for future generations of Israelis. Sadly I think Israel has gone too far off the rails. How can such an educated people be so dumb.
