Israel, the arms hunter
If Israel had pursued peace along with its policy of hunting down weapons in the region, maybe there would be no room for criticism. But when heading off weapons supplies becomes the only aim, it prompts a burning question: By what right?
More than once in recent years, it has appeared that Israel’s foreign and defense policy has centered around one thing: the attempt to hunt down weapons beyond the country’s borders. Just show it an arms deal in the region and Israel will foil it. It’s not that Israel is a pacifist country seeking to rid the world of arms. On the contrary, Israel hasn’t stopped arming; only it is allowed to do so.
