How long before someone in some distant ivory academia would actually seek to cover up this attack on the human rights of the Jews and us all with a veneer of respectability trawled from a warped and inverted vision of international law that reflexively excludes Middle East Jews?
A vision that reduces acts of extraordinarily careful self defence by free people to the equivalent of those committed by vile criminals by any standard of law and morality known to man or God.
Incredible you would think. This would have been impossible thirty years ago and it is perhaps a sign of how far Western civilisation has retreated in the face of the onslaught of political Islamic imperialism since the Islamic Revolution that this is now common in our universities everywhere.
Have a look at this appalling opinion on the politics and legality of it all in The Conversation from the very pit of Australian armchair comfort.
Even while the attacks on the civilian population of Israel still fall this academic in Australia can write this.
