If you obsess about Israel's supposedly murderous nature, yet feel neutral about Guatemala, Nigeria, Indonesia, Brazil -- each of which (though arguably not guilty of genocide) is responsible for the outright massacre of at least 100,000 innocent civilians -- then you are a bigot. You may not be an anti-Semite. But you have a problem with Jews.
We have all that we need to show that defaming Israel with the slur of "genocide" is a particular kind of lie: it is not simply inaccurate, but it is inaccurate by orders of magnitude.
The total number of Israelis and Palestinians killed, in over half a century of conflict, is approximately 15,000. This includes all of the fatalities on both sides: 15,000. In over 50 years.
Might Israel be an evil nation? It is a question I admit to asking myself. Am I on the wrong side of history? I have always considered Israel a friend. Might I be wrong?
