And I am constantly amazed at how ALL civilized countries are better able to accomodate legitimate criticism than is Israel. Let's see...Israel assassinates moderate Palestinian leaders; assaults and kills deliverers of aid to Gaza and calls them terrorists; bulldozes a young woman who is protesting the destrution of Palestinian housing. Not to mention, blinding a young girl whose only crime was criticizing Israeli policies that the whole world is also criticiziing. I am a FORMER supporter if Israel. However, it seems to me than any fair-minded person who supports balance and justice in the world can no longer support Israel's one-sided perspectives, in which vastly greater suffering from other peoples is not equated to even minor Israeli inconvenience.
