It’s Time to Stand Up to Extremism

This is yet another pitiful example of extremists disparaging one another. Moderates must vocally stand up to extremism on both sides of the divide. Otherwise, we are stuck with a relentless zero-sum fight between anti-Israeli and anti-Palestinian groups trying to delegitimize the identity and the humanity of the other. Any group that does not accept the fundamental right of each nation to a state, to freedom and to dignity and peace is part of the problem.

If we do not stand up firmly and resolutely against these extremists on both sides, they will continue feeding and strengthening one another and eventually turn both Israelis and Palestinians into international lepers. It is already happening. The question is whether enough of us will stand up before it’s too late.
