    Wow. Old white Christian guys, who don’t live in Israel, chiding Netenyahu for using the term Holocaust. At a time when (since the Holocaust) anti-Semitic violence and sentiment around the world has never been higher. When the narrative about Israel and the Palestinians has never been more one-sided and biased against Israel. James Fallows – Fuck You.
