I have said it before: Israelis are an amazing breed of people. For a decade, they have had rockets shot at them. For a decade, they have lived with suicide bombers, bus bombs etc. They listen as uneducated buffoons calls the country they live in “an apartheid state”. They love their country (for good reason), love the fact it is a beacon of democracy in the Middle East and love their neighbors.

I have a few questions for the world: When did it become OK to demonize every citizen of a country because you don’t agree/like something their government does? When did it become OK to try and distort a country’s demographics because you cannot stand the fact that Israelis (ALL OF THEM) have more freedoms than any other country in the Middle East? When did it become OK for Jews to be attacked all over the world??

The answer is this: IT SHOULD NEVER BE OK. Demonizing Israelis/Jews is wrong. Saying Israel is “100% Jewish” to feed some need to justify supporting terrorists is wrong. Israel is not, and has never been, an apartheid state. And Israelis are not demonic creatures who cheer death. Funny thing, the only ones cheering death are those who support those who want Israel destroyed.
