That disgusting assertion compelled me to respond. Here's my letter:
You’re wrong, Mr. Martin. Israel does not stand alone. Despite the hyped up response to the flotilla raid; despite the disproportionate response whenever Israel, pushed to the wall, takes action to defend itself; despite the overwrought handwringing in Europe and the Arab world, places that have succumbed to Zionhass, the Jew-hate of our age, and loathe Israel not for what it does but for what it is (Jewish); despite all that there are still many millions of people who cherish freedom and democracy, values which Israel resolutely stands for in the face of a concerted, existential threat from those who despise those values, and who seek to expunge them--and Israel, first in their line of fire--from the world.
“Israel stands alone”? No. Never.
