It doesn't help the cause of good versus evil when the prime minister of Britain speaks after the London bombing and, in listing nations that have also fallen victim to Islamic terrorism, leaves out Israel (where bus bombings have long been a reality). You don't have to be anti-Semitic to be part of the problem.
