Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
"Your ability to center your afflictions remains undiminished. Y"
And your tendency to use "whataboutism" to defend the actions of a terrorist state remains as appeasing as it has always been
As you say, the world is full of rogue administrations and always has been
There is litle that can be done about them as things stand
Now and again, a state oversteps the mark and is acted against
It should have happened in Germany, but it didn't until too late - with the unforgotten consequences
South Africa overstepped the mark and its own excesses coupled with a world wide boycott eventually led to its collapse
In my, and many others (including Jews) opinion, Israel has now overstepped that mark
It has recently slaughtered over twice the number of unarmed demonstrators as did the Apartheid regime in South Africa
A blockade aimed at starving the Palestinians into accepting continuing land seizures is now over a decade old
You only have to pull up the Amnesty figures to see how extensive those land seizures have become
Even the moderate Israeli press is talking about 'ethnic cleansing' and the BDS campaign is becoming as serious and issue as to lead Israel into attempting to interfere in the politics of other nations

As an early supporter of The State of Israel, I am appalled at the fact that the actions of the Israeli Government has now added greatly to the rise i antisemitism - serious enough to make it a major issue for me
Saying it's ok because others are doing it doesn't hack it - you act on what you care about and do what little you can
