    But what if both sides believe this? Just because America gives more weapons to Israel than they give to the Palestinians, does this make Israel justified in using them on civilians? If some stranger strikes me down and I respond by killing my neighbor, can I blame my neighbors death on the stranger? Will the police understand my story? If some stranger strikes me down, and in response I try to strike the stranger and instead I kill some children at play Will their parents understand that it is not my fault? Will the media understand that I am not a murderer, but the stranger is the real murderer? Right wing Israelis have the answer to all these questions, along with some free sarcasm and some gratuious name calling. We already know their answer. Israel is never at fault. It is always the victims fault or some third party. I don't believe that these right wing Israelis would be able to exist anywhere outside of their small cage called Israel.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
