the argument used by gunther grass is not exactly original. All anti israelis claim they are not criticizing the country. They are just criticizing policies. For them all israeli governments either from left , right or center deserve criticism and no russian government ( by instance ) deserve any rebuke. Its just surprising. They claim they are not anti israeli but they save all they energy just to criticize israel. Weird.
