What would have happened had unidentified individuals in Iran, France or Venezuela attacked Jewish shopkeepers and forced them to close their shops? What apologies and expressions of shock our diplomats would have demanded from the European Union, the United Nations and who knows who else. And with what glee various researchers would have drawn a graph of global hatred and been interviewed at length, with grave expressions, about the worrisome anti-Semitic characteristics – so reminiscent of a dark past – of robbing Jews of their livelihood and destroying their property.

Con la mano destra sto scrivendo un articolo sulle nuove limitazioni agli spostamenti degli abitanti della Striscia di Gaza. D’ora in poi per rilasciare un permesso di uscita le autorità israeliane impiegheranno tra i 50 e i 70 giorni lavorativi. Fino al 2015 ne bastavano 14 e in seguito 24. Dall’inizio del 2017 più di 14mila richieste di permesso sono rimaste inevase. Nella prima metà dell’anno sono stati concessi in media 6.300 permessi al mese, su una popolazione di due milioni di abitanti.

The tunnel from Gaza was absolutely a danger to Israeli lives. Islamic Jihad said it was intended for the purpose of abducting soldiers. Snatching people from their beds is, of course, a privilege reserved for Israeli soldiers. They do it nightly. Israelis said the tunnel would be used to murder women and children. In any case, Israel had a right, a duty even, to foil the threat to its citizens and residents’ safety and hit the tunnel. But the timing was suspicious: just as the Palestinians are trying to unite in Gaza, just before the transfer of responsibility for the border terminals between the Gaza Strip and Egypt.

“Israel knows the situation in Myanmar better than international organizations and the media. Both sides are committing war crimes. The current situation began after Muslims attacked positions of the Burmese army,” said Israel’s deputy consul general in New York, Amir Sagie, responding to accusations that Israel sells arms to a regime that is committing horrific war crimes against the Rohingya, a helpless ethnic and religious minority.
