The entire globe is full of backwards abusive governments that slaughter their own people, threaten neighbors, and preach hatred. The entire Middle East is full of them. Yet, Israel, for some of you, seem to always take center stage no matter what. Even during the Cold War, with a Soviet Union bearing down on western Europe, Europeans chose to scrutinize Israel's policies. Even as the French were publicly torturing tens of thousands of Muslims in Tunisia in the 1950/1960s, Europeans were so intently interested in Israel's behaviors. Why is that? Oh....because of policies that most of you don't even know? They are so bad that Soviet nuclear missiles and Iranian nuclear ambitions are minor? Israeli policies are so decrepit that the policies throughout the rest of the region that call for the oppression and slaughter of tribal people within Islam go unnoticed and dismissed? With Iran constantly threatening and funding terrorists activity, Israel is the one under the microspcope? The first thing Israel haters do when something happens to Israelis is wait for a retaliation so as to jump all over bad behavior.
Jews, it would seem, are the ones not to get away with anything. How dare they be victims of Europe and now defend themselves against regional neighboring Muslims. The natural deflection amongst those who go out of there way to scrutinize Israel's policies are simply using it to display a disgust for Jews without saying it. Without Isreal, many of you would be more honest about what you really criticize. Most Americans on this board just don't let you get away with it. I mean..you are the continent that perfected their cleansings and genocides and sent them to create a home in the Middle East, right? Today you choose to be interested in the single Jewish nation on earth and pretend it's just about the policies? Nobody buys it.
