In this amoral world, all nations sit back and condemn Israel for using bullets and other sophisticated force when women and children of Gaza and the West Bank "simply" throw stones and fight against what they've been brainwashed to believe is their enemy. Israel is not blameless. However, is there no one who will point out that their real enemies are the governments that rule them and against which they are impotent?

It's pretty clear that anti-Semitism, while used generally to describe hatred of Jews, is rampant and includes hatred of all Semites — and this includes Arabs. Those who feel that way perhaps feel that this could finally result in the "final solution." They merely want to observe Arabs and Jews killing each other and walk away with impunity. I think history will see it differently.
