"A light unto the nations." Yeah, right.
Dutch nonagenarian returns Righteous Among the Nations medal after six relatives killed in Gaza - World Israel News | Haaretz
One less Righteous Gentile, thanks to Apartheid Israel’s campaign of indiscriminate slaughter in Gaza.
As if there were any remaining shreds of credibility left on the Israeli “we’re the victims” narrative.
Note, however, that the writer of this piece has to walk around with bodyguards in Israel because he’s gotten so many death threats.

But let’s never forget, Israel is the victim here. Please, Elie Wiesel, talk to me some more about celebration of life.
The discourse that leaves the mouths of those in power, and of a large part of the media has strict parameters. In a world of ever decreasing standards, the best we indeed hope for in this conflict is for a politician to declare the attack as ‘disproportionate’. The debate, purposefully, hasn’t been whether it is appropriate at all to be attacking the battered population of Gaza. Seemingly, a population locked in their own land, under siege and blockade, with 80% surviving on humanitarian aid, are a threat that must be neutralised.
There have also been bold actions in Israel. A group calling itself Jews Against Genocide has been lighting things on fire in front of Israeli government buildings. The latest move was the burning of a funeral pyre in front of the Israeli Supreme Court this week.
The website “Walla!” published talkback comments on an article about the four children killed on the Gaza beach. Shani Moyal: “I couldn’t care less that Arab children were killed, too bad it wasn’t more. Well done to the IDF.” Stav Sabah: “Really, these are great pictures. They make me so happy, I want to look at them again and again.” Sharon Avishi: “Only four? Too bad. We hoped for more.” Daniela Turgeman: “Great. We need to kill all the children.” Chaya Hatnovich: “There isn’t a more beautiful picture than those of dead Arab children.” Orna Peretz: “Why only four?” Rachel Cohen: “I’m not for children dying in Gaza. I’m for everyone burning.” Tami Mashan: “As many children as possible should die.”
Ordinary Israelis, celebrating the deaths of Palestinian children.
In Hebron, Palestinians have erected protective metal barriers above their homes and shops, since “settlers” are fond of bombarding them with garbage, bricks, rocks, and bags of piss and shit and even acid.
… Israel has become a country where right-wing leaders like Avigdor Lieberman and Bibi Netanyahu are sacrificing democracy on the altar of their power politics; where the loyal opposition largely and passively stands aside and watches the organized assault on civil liberties; where state-funded Orthodox rabbis publish books that provide instructions on how and when to kill Gentiles; where half of Jewish youth declare their refusal to sit in a classroom with an Arab; and where mob violence targets Palestinians and African asylum seekers scapegoated by leading government officials as “demographic threats.”
Another self-hating Jew, I guess.
