    Israel styles itself as a western style democracy. In reality, Israel is very far from a western style democracy. Israel is building communities on land outside their national borders. This is land that Israel hasn't the nerve to "annex" and yet still build on it. Israel is holding a population of millions of Palestinians hostage, controlling their movement, their supplies, and their freedom. These are not things that any "western style democracy" can do. But wait, there's more. After Israel invaded, and stole the homes of the Palestinians, they called Palestinian resistance "terrorism". After Israel started a nuclear arms race in the Mideast, they call for Israel to be sanctioned for following suit.. After Israel used "targeted assassination" to kill various Arab leaders, including Lebanese Arabs, they cry out for Hizbollah to be prosecuted for killing an Arab leader. The good news is that so many people in the world have gotten wise to the reality that is Israel, there will be no going back to playing the good guys. Israel is firmly in place as the villain of the decade and maybe the century.
