Like Norman Finklestein said:

“The refrain that Israel has the right to self-defense is a red herring: the real question is, does Israel have the right to use force to maintain an illegal occupation? The answer is no."

“Terrorism is the deliberate and systematic murder, maiming, and menacing of the innocent to inspire fear for political ends.”

Benjamin Netanyahu 1986

Edit: According to Bibi’s definition, he must see a terrorist every time he looks in the mirror.

That such a reasonable statement by France, can somehow be seen as controversial, is a sad commentary on the state of the world, in and of itself. The deaths of innocents is somehow seen as business as usual, earning no more than three minutes on the nightly news, and a few “tut-tut-tuts” on the Sunday talking head shows.

France shouldn’t second guess Netanyahu, or else? Else, what?

Israel is a tiny country. It needs all the friends it can get. Israelis need to remember that in the absence of any effort to cultivate friends in its neighborhood, Israel’s existence is dependent on the support of big countries like the United States and France.

Maybe the Israeli people ought to tell Netanyahu to get his head out of his ass.

Indiscriminate killing of civilians does nothing to enhance Israel’s security, it only creates more people who hate them.
