Loving Israel ≠ Loving Bi Bi

It bears noting that there is a difference between supporting Israel’s right to exist as a viable state, and supporting everything that the government of Israel does without criticism.

I have issues with many of Israel’s policies and actions, but I hope and work for a better way. At the same time, I will not engage in a discussion with someone who either questions Israel’s right to exist or who supports those who do.

Israel has the responsibility to bear criticism for its actions, but it has the right to expect from all of us explicit recognition of the nation’s right to exist.
