Israel is a really special case. When other countries defend themselves, it's called defense. When Israel defends itself, it's called aggression. All politicians lie, and they lie big time. However, when Netanyahoo lies, all of a sudden, it's as if he's the only liar in the world. There's something about Israel that makes it special: whenever it does what all others do, suddenly that's bad. Makes me think that those who say that Israel is criticized because it the homeland of the Jews and attracts the hatred of the anti-Semites is true.
