"Israeli Labor leader slams Livingstone's 'horrific, unthinkable' views"
Well, here is an example of either ignorance or genuine hate, hate posing as the moral high-ground.
Livingston expressed nothing "unthinkable," he expressed a historical fact, undoubtedly unpleasant for some.
Livingston would have better avoided mentioning it, but it remains a fact, not an expression of hate.
If you want a genuine example of "unthinkable" behavior, and on a massive scale, there is Israel's holding about five million people completely against their will, giving them absolutely no rights or status, abusing them endlessly with walls, demolitions, imprisonment, checkpoints, limits on their fishing, blockading them, bombing them, seizing homes and farms, assassinating them, and, yes, documented torture.
Good God, we are all expected to ignore these horrors just because a politician mentioned an inconvenient truth?
The letter by Isaac Herzog is utterly self-serving and represents the cheapest political opportunism.
