With (great) respect, to proclaim support for Israel’s “right to exist” is to acknowledge at some level that that “right” is somehow in question, that there is a legitimate debate on one side of which is the proposition that Israel has no right to exist. Which is to allow the discussion to be held on terms set by the Iranian regime and it’s supporters here and elsewhere. Is there any other country on Earth whose existence is challenged or threatened, with or without the enthusiastic complicity of a large dollop of the worthless element of the left? Do these people have any concept of what would happen to the Jewish people if Israel were to fall? Of what the Middle -East without Christians and Jews, just Shia v Sunni, would actually look or feel like? Of course there are difficult issues to be resolved, as there are in many other corners of the World. Of course there is right and wrong on both sides. But this existential stuff should not be indulged for a moment.
