even if every israeli leader were to become mute, the world, i.e., the oic and their various allies would do everything in their power to delegitimise israel. there is a concerted effort to demonise israel and at the same time to distract attention from the very real slaughters being committed by muslims worldwide. the west is paralysed with fear of islamic terror and very prone to blackmail by countries with petro-dollars. the resurgence of antisemitism in europe is an additional factor.
