There are a few things about which only Israelis have a right to voice their comments.

Reader comment on item: May an American Comment on Israel?

But they are a very few. It should only be about articles that relate to how they are affected by what is going on. Only Israelis can comment on that. But we are all citizens of this World. And when Israeli politicians act in stupid ways, we all suffer. When hostages are taken, their families must recognize that the possibility that they will be rescued is small.
