Why does criticism of Israeli policies illicit such outrage in the US? In Israel itself, many voices are heard, and those Israelis who are opposed to the wall or to unreasonable restrictions on Palestinians are not branded anti-semitic. So many of the postings seem to suggest that Palestinians, innocent or guilty, young or old, deserve harsh treatment. But surely Israel, like any country, has a right to defend itself and an obligation to so so in the most humane way possible.
