little the denialists care for reality. Saw this sort of thing many times in my years working to try and help addicts, and even those with 'co-dependents' enabling them to dismiss the decision of person after person in their lives to shun them at least until they started dealling with their problems eventually drove everyone, even the co-dependent, away from themselves. Unfortunately, all too many kept on with their self-destructive ways even after that point. Those who's citizenship the Israeli regime recognizes face the same choice as those in the Southern US states did during the Civli War, continue to support the wrong side, or accept that the folks who's citizenship the regime that they kept in power are their equals.
