This is not only sad, it is dangerous. The more energy Israel spends on opposing criticism, manufacturing its own reports to offset condemnations, and taking less responsibility (standing behind their acts while not admitting their mistakes), the less legitimacy it will have in the world. It will hurt Israel's ability to defend itself and will allow a coalition of rogue groups and the countries that support them to deliver one final blow to Israel. And while war hawks may believe Israel can withstand such attacks - it most certainly will not.
This will have only one outcome; a slow deterioration and destruction of Israel, its society, and its integrity, and the absolute and unquestionable victory of those we set out to eradicate. Lepers are indistinguishable to the general population, and Israel is in danger of becoming quarantined.
