Exactly - Israel behaves itself as an ancient country, just like other Middle Eastern countries. If you research it, you will find that the majority of the younger generation in Israel also does not support its government's actions.

This was only a matter of time and it's their fault.

To you, anyone who opposes Israel is an anti-Semite. But maybe you'll grow up.

The conservative people in my family usually resort to insults when losing an argument. I think they should grow up..

I will continue to support Israel so long as its neighbors are demonstrably worse in every single way.

I will not single out Israel for special condemnation when its surrounded by prolific human rights abusers that everyone give a pass to.

I will not worry myself about Israel so long as the Ummah maintains a vested interest in stoking tensions between Israel and Palestinians as a way to divert attention away from their own shortcomings.


Much of our innovations in science, tech, medicine comes out of Israel. It's a nation of 8 million surrounded by 800 million of the world's most regressive nations that contribute nothing to the world but oil and religious extremism.

The millennials and generation Z post criticisms of Israel using tech whose microprocessing and software engineering can be traced directly to labs in Tel Aviv.

What is really odd however is that the Left seems to be preaching that Israel, a modern country both politically and more importantly socially is the problem while they virtually ignore the fact that in other Middle East countries women are second class citizens, the country is run under an iron fist of unchanging unbending religious rule and don't even think about coming out if you are gay because it will be the end of you.

It is tragic that our kids are only being taught one side of the story.
Yes, it is tragic, and there is no way of legitimately explaining why only one side of the story is being taught to young people - other than the fact that the "teaching" is being done by liberals in academia. They are doing just what the U.N. is doing, and most reasonable people see a decided anti-Semitic slant to the U.N. Human Rights Council in particular (which hands out the "demerits"). They almost completely ignore the human rights violations countries like Syria and Saudi Arabia perpetuate own their own people, while focusing their condemnation on Israel. Anyone who thinks an anti-Jewish bias isn't influencing the double standard is denying a glaring truth.

And to you, anyone who points out the double standards where Israel is criticized via multiple anti-Israel threads when the far more egregious behavior by Arab countries is overlooked gets insulted and mocked. ESPECIALLY if it's a Jew who points it out.

And there we go, right on schedule.

Millennials are in their 20s and 30s and are completely capable of making up their own minds. They are technology natives who are very plugged into to the flow of information that is accessible these days.

Just because they disagree with you does not make them anti-Semites. It means they see Israel in a way that you don't...or won't.

How old are YOU? Just curious.

And young people are going along with the anti-Israel stuff because it's trendy among liberals. Interesting how all,these protests on liberal campuses are focused on Israel while more egregious behavior committed by other countries (like Mynamar) is of no interest. Some young people are so brainwashed these days that some of them are saying that Israel is worse than ISIS! That type of ridiculous belief is driven by either ignorance or antisemitism.

But we single them out for an unproportionate amount of support. It's not exactly apples to apples.

You denigrate an entire generation simply because they disagree with you.

You're not going to like the future.
Yeah, the future that pushes Israel into the Sea, at the hands of their Islamist neighbors. The only reason any Islamic country is against Israel is because they are Jewish. It's not like they even like Palestinians, they just hate Jewish people more. Once Islamist conquer a country it is almost impossible to free your country from them.
