When Israel is being attacked on all sides by the international community for alleged wrongs, all pro-Israel advocates must come to her defense.
Even if Israel could be faulted in some way, the job of the advocate is to focus on how others can be faulted. It in no way helps Israel’s cause to acknowledge in some way, that she too is at fault even with a caveat that it is a minor fault.
