Why each criticism of Israeli action (in it's war of survival) has to be taken with multiple filters
First, let's all keep in mind the distinguished open society Israel is, the most diversity of opinions heard, free speech to all.
Not so ANY Arab Muslim regime, "moderates" or not, especially the "Palestinians", Fatah or Hamas.
Fair enough to say that any Arab, be a member of Israeli parliament or football player, or doctor (in Israel's special advancement for Israeli Arabs projects) can say whatever is on his mind in Israeli public, not so on the other side.
Self criticism in it's highest form ever recorded in western society.
Instead of appreciating and respecting this island of democracy amidst the jungle of totalitarianism, critics only prefer to choose the outbursts as "reality".
Here is a trick, politicians in Israel will go to great length, using most exaggerated definitions to dramatize their point, on more than one occasion, media is more than happy to picks it up as "facts".
Take for example the control that Israeli security allocates more to Arabs outside it's current assumed borders to Arabs inside it's borders, the ultra lefty politicians will cry wolf "racism", ignoring the fact that it's all about security and Arabs with an Israeli passport that enjoy regular Israeli checkups and security are no less of an 'Arab race' than the Arabs with (so called) "Palestinian" passport.
Most of the mainstream media, not only Arabist propaganda, will never show us the beauty of the rainbow multi-color, multi-racial, multi-opinion, Israeli society, but will select a phrase from such obvious totally political minded statements as an "opinions" or far worse.
SPECIAL JEWISH GUILT - MOTIVATION
Face it, whether it's "Doctors without borders", humanitarian aid global wide, halt and prevention of genocide, Jews are in the forth runners.
Jews inside Israel worry about Arab children's conditions more than many Arabs themselves?
Not a cliche!
All those Israeli Jewish "peace" movements, all those Israeli Jewish actions on behalf of Arab Muslim "Palestinians", do not have any "counterparts" on the Arab side, There is not one Arab Muslim "Palestinian" organization that works on behalf of Israeli victims.
Not even one!
Of course it's that collective super morality that many Jews choose to ignore the reality that most Arabs & most Muslims are incited day & night to "kill the Jew", and chose to concentrate in actions for 'Palestinians'.
Many Israeli Zionist Jews choose not to ignore the reality and with all that it's stake still work to improve conditions of the Arab Muslim 'Palestinians', no matter the fact that it's always only their decisions of overwhelmingly supporting violence upon the innocent that causes their situation.
1) TRADITIONAL BLIND HATRED OR "ANTI-SEMITISM" (SOME TRADITIONS DON'T NEED REASONS).
2) ARAB LEADERS' FAULT OF POOR ARAB PALESTINIANS' CONDITIONS, LEADS TO BLAME THE ZIONISTS (EXACTLY THEIR INTENTIONS).
3) WHEN NOT REALIZING HOW GOLIATH TERRORISM REALLY IS, THAT STRIKES THE WEAK UNARMED, UNPREPARED, EN MASSE, ONE WOULD BLINDLY SEE THE WELL ARMED VS. THE NOT SO WELL ARMED
Only when keeping in mind all of the above, one could start hearing the critics.
