So you feel equally as scornful of, say, England, Ireland, Greece, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, China, Samoa, and every third world Muslim country?
There are numerous UN resolutions that call for its withdrawal from Syria and palestinian lands and the return of palestinian refugees to the homes they own.
In other news, lots of old men shout at clouds, so we should hate clouds.
Yet those resolutions are never applied nor talked about.
Many would argue they are given the very consideration that they deserve.
It also has a nuclear arsenal that everyone chooses to turn a blind eye on.
Can you elaborate on this? What exactly would be a satisfactory level of attention to be paid to Israel's nuclear capability?
It doesnt get any shit at all.
Aside from the UN resolutions you mentioned above, widespread boycott/divestiture campaigns against Israeli companies, near-constant terrorist attacks, an invasion every couple of decades, and the universal scorn of academia. Aside from that, yeah, they don't get any shit at all.
All countries that have done any of this have been militarily attacked or have sanctions imposed on them.
Done what? Had a nuclear arsenal? In any event, Israel has been attacked, repeatedly, and has economic sanctions, from both the private and public sectors, imposed upon it.Edited by FLMountainMan - 10/16/15 at 11:28am
