I do -- European migration to the Americas, for instance. There are probably other examples I could criticize just as vehemently as well. But I'd add, as I think I have pointed out before, I'm not de-legitimizing Israel's legitimacy as a nation-state, if that's what you're getting at. Nor am I oblivious to the tactics of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. I'm a lot more nuanced than what I'm given credit for on the whole.

My grievance, as it were, is in the lack of balance in discussing Israeli-Palestinian politics, which is almost always in favor of Israel and against Palestinians. I think this thread and the treatment of Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib have made that abundantly clear.
