It’s not illegal when Israel does it.

Yesterday’s Pravda-on-the-Hudson had an Editorial telling us that Putin, damn him, Is Not To Be Trusted. I am relying on you to indulge me in a little thought experiment.

The central paragraph to said Editorial, in the Saturday Pravda-on-the-Hudson, went:

In his quest for control and regional power, Mr Putin poses a serious threat to the international order by disregarding borders, violating agreements, and pursuing an expansionist vision without regard to other states or even the effect that economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation could have

Now let’s substitute for “Putin” the word “Netanyahu”.

In his quest for control and regional power, Mr Netanyahu poses a serious threat to the international order by disregarding borders, violating agreements, and pursuing an expansionist vision without regard to other states or even the effect that economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation could have

It is simple fact. We just don’t read about it in Pravda-on-the-Hudson.
