I like Israel. I dislike the Occupation. I hold Israel to high standars and I have higher expectations when it comes to Israel than when it comes to Russia or China. I find Israel is culturally and politically closer to my own European roots, and I believe its founding ideals are worth defending. I feel utterly disappointed when I see the latter being so horribly forgotten by current politicians. I hope and believe Israel can set the example.
