Maybe it is because he is more interested in the effect of his words rather
than the truth.
It is a good point that people think what Israel is doing is innocent.
Any nation born out of terrorism and hatred is not a good foundation.
The people is Israel also are coming from persecuted communities where they
feel safer in Israel than elsewhere.
But in truth it would have to be pretty bad for this to be true, and in many jewish
communities it is far better where they are than in Israel.
Equally there will always be right wing jew haters, like there will be people who defend
persecuted communities also. The biggest test of each group is do they hate, and defend
injustice or evil behaviour, with obvious sin being involved.
