Is Israel a nation of laws or a nation of vigilantes? Palestinian cars are torched, olive groves are destroyed and the Israeli government looks the other way. The right wing in Israel do not realize or seem to care that every year support for Israel decreases because the Israeli government lets right wing extremists run amuck in Palestinian areas destroying property knowning they never will be brought to justice. Israel has become a bully, a nation of planes, tanks, & nuclear weapons that reacts to provocations by the Palestinians with an anvil and tries to paint themselves as the victims. This is not the light unto nations it once was, and Israel is losing its soul by allowing extremist settlers and religious groups to rule. It's quite telling, in a nation of immigrants from over 100 countries, that it is right wing American Olim setting the region ablaze. You never hear about sabras behaving this way. Why?
