Israel can never win to some

I am convinced the anti-Israel movement is schizophrenic. This is not some half-baked idea I came up with.

They scream and cry about supposed human rights abuses by Israel. The Gazan war was “disproportinate”. Hamas is “just frustruated”. Those rockets cannot do “any harm”. If Israel did not occupy Gaza.

Yeah. I KNOW.

They never mention the tragedy happening in Syria.  They never mention the executions of gays in Iran. And how many Jewish or Christians are members of governments in the Middle East? How is ISIS treating Christians in Iraq?

Mention any of these to them? They go silent or accuse you of trying to change the subject

Tell them you believe Palestinians have the right to self determination?  They accuse you of lying.

Remind them that non Jews make up 25% of Israel’s population? They scream second class citizens.

Remind them that Non Jews have representation in the Knesset?  They scream”no they don’t”.

My point is ( and yes I have one) that they are not interested in facts. You could say the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus were prime minister of Israel and they would try to either refute it by saying the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus were oppressing the Palestinians or want them taken to the ICC for crimes against humanity. No matter how much Israel does right, she can never win in their eyes.

Iwill leave it up to the reader to decide why.
