Much of this is true, but the author fails to explain why Israel acts in the ways he describes. There is no mention of rocket attacks, terrorism, the anti-Israel bias in the UN and other world bodies, the growing questioning of the need for a Jewish state, the intimidation of pro-Israel students on college campuses, the takeovers of Gaza and Lebanon by well-armed radical Islamic groups that are bent on Israel's destruction, the overly harsh anti-Israel rhetoric in Arab school systems and state-sponsored media, the use of Israel as a vehicle through which to vent anti-Semitism, etc. It's good to be sensitive to police-state like characteristics in Israel, but it is wrong to ignore the legitimate threats to Israel that have led to certain policies. Such articles can lead those who are uninformed to draw ov erly-simplistic conclusions.
