Again, the Israel bashers are heaping their hatred on the only truly democratic and pluralistic nation in the Middle East. Again, they deny this small state the right — indeed, the obligation — to defend its citizens from terrorist attacks across unfriendly borders. Again, they ignore the clear pattern of deadly provocation prior to Israeli action — in this case, months of unanswered missile fire from Gaza into southern and central Israel.
Seemingly, there is a cottage industry of a few Davisites — Sherrill Futrell, Marsha Carlton, Mikos Fabersunne apparently among them — dedicated to the demonization of Israel. An honest confession on their part would be to simply admit that they wish Israel had never been created in the first place and that it should disappear. But since the Jewish state is successful and permanent, we are in for a lot more of this garbage.
