Actually they don't. It's just by threads such as this one that a certain set of people gets the wrong impression that Israel would be a hot topic of sorts. It actually isn't.

Chari, there are indeed some sites where one would imagine Israel is the center of the world - and they are NOT 'pro-Israel' sites!

Right. It is natural for Jews to focus on Israel-related topics, but it is quite something else when some Norwegians, or whatever other people, do that... a preoccupation that is - in my view - decidedly not natural but pathologic... Just like it is not natural for Americans to focus on Norway, by the way.

Even Arabs don't focus on Israel as much as some Jews believe we do.

Except that we were really talking about antisemitism.  The issue is that most of you are trying to blame antisemitism on Israeli politics, instead of calling a spade, a spade.

>>>>>>True


I focus a bit on occupation of Palestine. That is all.


Rest is full of best wishes for Israel (Like I feel for most other countries).
