Everyone But Israelis

Two nights ago on NBC News I watched a US government official commenting on the death of a teenaged Mexican boy at a border crossing into the United States. It seems the boy was shot by a border policeman because he had a rock in his hand and was threatening to throw it at the policeman. “Completely justified” commented the official. “What do you expect to happen when a weapon is going to be used against a policeman?” The NBC reaction–merely an understanding nodding of the head by the always limply insipid Brian Williams. And yet, Israeli soldiers and police, when they find themselves in similar circumstances, are roundly condemned for using “excessive force.”  The bottom line: it is moral for everyone to defend himself except for Israelis.
