Isreal and Disproportionate

Victor Davis Hanson takes a stab at The Israel enigma in the Washingtom Times July 8. He asks “What explains most of the world’s dislike of Israel?” and notes that “Israel is always seen as a special exception that somehow deserves what it gets.”

A new example can be added to the list. It is those who are using disproportionate to complain about Israel. On the one hand, launching crude rockets with anti personnel munitions into Isreali cities and kidnapping soldiers is seen as something only needing a bit more diplomatic talk. To respond by taking out the missle stores, their launching locations, and isolating the perpetrators is labeled “disproportionate.”

Say what?
