-You ignore the mountain of evil that surrounds you, and choose to concentrate on the Israeli molehill- The issue of Israel's conflict with, and dominance over, the Palestinian people far predates the rise of the phenomenon you allude to.

What however is a pretext for them, is a real historical issue for both Israel and the Palestinians.
