Israel is held to a higher standard than other countries
We have no right to criticize Israel as long as we are responsible for our own war crimes.
It's always rich to hear Americans criticize Israel for killing civilians or occupying land in war time, while ignoring their own rampant war crimes. Americans killed more civilians in a few months in Iraq than Israel has in its entire existence. Other nations have committed far more atrocities and crimes than Israel has, yet these nations are exempt from criticism, or at least exempt from the same level of criticism aimed towards the Jewish state.
Americans, today, are occupying dozens of nations, including still being in Iraq and Afghanistan. Why isn't there a worldwide BDS movement to call for actions against American occupiers and far more frequent civilian murderers? The fact it's a Jewish state has everything to do with this. There is literally no other explanation when people ignore atrocities occurring all around Israel that are far worse.
