Like any other country in the world, or a politician or an institution, Israel is susceptible to criticismthe problem is that most of the criticisms leveled at the Hebrew state are not like those leveled at any other country.
For example Israel is the only country in the world that is not recognized as having the right to defend itself. and the right to retaliation, one of the keys to international relations by virtue of which the necessary response is considered legitimate not only to repel an aggression or cause damage similar to that caused by it, but also to do whatever is necessary so that the aggressor stops posing a threat, exactly what Israel is doing with Hamas.
Israel is also the country in the world whose dead are most despised: after the terrible attack of October 7, instead of a wave of global solidarity with the victims, we have experienced a wave of solidarity with the murderers.
And Israel is the state of the world the one who is most harshly examined: for example, Russia has massacred the civilian population in Ukraine, it has broken all the laws of war and it has done so without prior aggression, but even so we have not seen the large demonstrations that have been held in half the world against the intervention in Gaza.
And what is the difference? Why does Israel receive such different treatment? It is not, of course, because it is a dictatorial and criminal state.like Russia itself or many of the Arab states that roam freely in the Middle East, such as Syria, Qatar or Iran.
No, the only real difference is that Israel is the only country with a Jewish majority in the worldthat’s where almost all the criticism comes from and that’s why they are anti-Semitic.
