When every action Israel takes now is described as a breach of international law (and by people who wouldn't recognize a law book if it dropped on their foot) and the most popular tactic among Israel's enemies is delegitimization, we don't need to give them more ammunition by revealing dubious actions committed 70 years ago. The criticisms on this page haven't placed the new state's actions in their historical context, a time shortly after America had dropped two atom bombs, Chechoslovakia was expelling 2 million Sudeten Germans and the UK still ruled India. Others won't either. I want to know what's in those files but I can wait. The editorial hasn't persuaded me that Israel is in a strong enough position to handle the reactions, and the talkbacks prove that Israel's critics aren't mature enough deliver sensible ones.
