Did you ever notice that when Israel needs to defend itself from attacks that all of these people come out of the woodwork to criticize it? I mean when a bunch of people get gunned down in Africa nobody seems to raise a hue and cry (except for a few brave people). Israel is the only country that always occupies the TV ever year with some new peace plan being smashed by someone blowing themselves up or shooting rockets into their land. Even after they withdrew from Gaza the attacks continued and innocent people were killed. Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Secular people all killed indiscriminately by these murderers. Still Israel is condemned for a "disproportionate response" to the rocket attacks when they used airstrikes and sent troops in to defend their people. If any other nation did this would they be under such scrutiny? The question is Do you think that Israel is held to a double standard when it comes to it's defense?
