I see, so the lesson of the Holocaust wasn't that genocide is evil, but that
killing Jews is evil?

And this means that it's okay today for the Israeli government and segments
of the Israeli population to do whatever they want to the
Palestinians--whether that involves bombing them in Gaza or continuing
systematically to steal their land in the West Bank--because Israel, being a
priori the victim of the evil to end all evils, is exempt from committing
evil itself?

Is that what you're saying Malgosia?

Why don't you pay attention to some of the domestic Israeli critiques of the
matter before assuming that everyone, denizen of a spurious "West" or not,
who is trying to help out the Palestinians in this moment of crisis is
automatically anti-Israel.

Nie jest w końcu tak łatwo.
