rephrasing the criticism

Reader comment on item: Do I Not Criticize Israeli Policies?

Submitted by myth (Germany), Sep 30, 2013 at 10:52

In order to be accepted as a proper critic of Israel let me rephrase some of the complaints:

Israel violated International Law with the Oslo process.

Israel surrendered innocent civilians to violent extremists in Lebanon and Gaza.

Israel exposed itself as an apartheid state by expelling Arab convicts to the Palestinian territories.

Israel underestimates and neglects the International Community in contemporary conflicts.

Israel ignores the minority rights of 20 percent of the Palestinians who accept a Jewish state.

Israel defies the universally accepted right of self-determination by not fighting to win but to reach a compromise.

This is the high moral ground one must occupy. So high one bumps one's head against the ceiling of common sense. For some it hurts, others will applaud. A critic of Israel at last.
