There is an unfortunate conflation of Jews and Israel. I began a book by David Mamet about Jewish persecution which ought to have been fascinating, but not only was the language verbose, he made this error from the get go. It is clear that the world hates the Jews. That as a people our right to be should be as guaranteed as any other. Our right to a land, at the expense of another people, is arbitrary and violent. Drawing the distinction here between retaliation and resistance is important. So, too, is framing the situation at present in the context of history as a whole. Only by naïvely offering that this incident is isolated can Israel’s campaign receive any legitimization, though even then the power-imbalance is clear. The reality is, though, that the ghettoization of the Palestinian people and the eradication of land that can be said to be Palestine is constant and relentless.
