A Gift for Israel's Haters

(Ynet News) Ben-Dror Yemini - With actress Natalie Portman's decision to boycott Israel, Israel's haters have received a significant gift. Countries like Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, and the U.S. have been making decisions on refugees and asylum seekers that generate criticism and public debate. But no one has chosen to boycott those countries, or ceremonies that are held in those countries, or the leaders of those countries. Portman's move joins the march of double standards against Israel. When Israel defends itself against jihad organizations, like Hamas and Hizbullah, every Israeli response is turned into "crimes against humanity." Is every country allowed to defend itself, except Israel? Are the U.S., France and Britain allowed to strike in Syria - although it doesn't pose an existential threat to them - while Israel is forbidden to retaliate against those who are trying to harm it and who also happen to hold an ideology of annihilating Jews?
