"hasn't been terrorized and black-mailed into compliance." yes, europeans act out of self-interest and malevolence towards jews but also it is fear that drives them. facts about the jewish state only confuse issues because they stack up pretty well in its favor. while the undeniable fact about arabs is that their business is theft of cars from israel, of collecting money from Iran, and the gulf states for terror against israel, and of creating a multi-billion dollar state bureaucracy which is constantly teetering on the brink of collapse unless funds from countless states and ngos is injected to prop up the system. a system which is racist and supremacists to the core, which constantly threatens war if its demands are not met.
