Times Of Israel Removes ‘When Genocide Is Permissible’ Post

“Never, and shame on you for asking.” That’s the answer to that question.

Yesterday I wrote a post criticizing Israel’s most vociferous critics. I endorsed a comment by Yisrael Hasson, a member of Israel’s Knesset. He said: “NATO bombed 5,000 civilians in Kosovo just because it was insulted; 27,000 Iraqi civilians were bombed during the American invasion because they posed a danger to the US; there is not a country in the world that can talk to us about morality.”

In other words: Israel is no worse than other countries.

And that’s the problem, because Israel is also no better than other countries. And, like the US, it’s supposed to be better. Israel and the US are supposed to be shining examples to the world. We were once. Now, well, at least we’re not as bad as our enemies. I suppose that’s something.

Richard Adhikari: Israel used to be…it was the tank officers who stopped the invasion of Lebanon in ’68 because they said they weren’t there to make war on civilians…Moshe Dayan and several prominent high-ranking Israeli armed forces officers took out an ad urging peace…who are the madmen running Israel now? via plus.google.com
