There is no need to criticize Israel

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

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Dec 17, 2013 at 12:12

Dear Dr Pipes,

Regarding the people who say that you do not criticize Israel, I suggest that there is no need to criticize Israel for any one. If we make a rule that every time when someone criticizes an Islamist group, they must also criticize Israel, we will establish a moral equivalency between the two sides. Israel will deserve criticism if some of the following things happen:

1) It ceases to be a democracy.

2) Israel ceases to have its own check and balances. And it also ceases to have a self-critical and strong liberal constituency which keeps a vigilant eye on its own religious orthodoxy and government.

3) Judaism becomes the fastest growing religion in the world with tens of countries with 98% Jewish population and Jews still claim to be victims.

3) Jews declare that their religion is the best and everyone will eventually become a Jew.

4) Jews create their own banking, legal, and political systems around the world.

5) We find enough of hypocritical Jewish organizations whose only purpose is to advance the Jewish cause.

I can write many more things but I think you get the idea. So keep up the good work. I am not saying that Israel does no wrong. Just that it already has enough critics.
