Akiva, #3, reiterates the humbug used by too many of my fellow Israelis when, head in sand, they seek to ignore the reprehensible actions and attitudes of the right-wing no-nothings now in power. As Jews and Israelis, our responsibility and necessary privilege is to police our own actions, not the actions of the hard-hats and red-necks of other nations. If in this task, we are joined by by others not minding the actions of their own governments, it is just too bad. Jewish ethics, morals and history compel us, or should compel us to protest the humiliation and pain caused by our government, some of our soldiers, and a large percentage of the settlers to Palestinian civilians.
