    There is a trivial way to defuse the European demonstrations and lower the overall level of anxiety. Simply have the IDF stop murdering thousands of innocent people any time it likes, every couple of years on average, and everyone is bound to lighten up. Stop stealing land and water and resources from the Palestinians and you might even find outright peace breaking out.
