if you hate Israel, it's for one of two reasons: anti-semitism and a strong belief in universal human rights (and an aversion to nationalism). I don't think you belong to the former camp melissa, in which case, why do you constantly downplay other conflicts. Why must Israel be the sole culprit in the world, the sole aggressor. Moreover, why does occupation warrant the response of bus bombings and killing civilians? If you believe strongly in human rights, nothing should get you to compromise this value, not even your hatred for Israel.
