61. That's completely irrelevant.
No matter how many times it's used as a tactic, trying to justify Isreali illegality
by using absurd comparisons that ignore said illegality, doesn't prove anything. Using
an absurd straw man to try & justify said illegality doesn't address the reality of the
situation.

I'll post that Orwell quote again, try & think why it's relevant, *why* I think you
should read it;

"The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."

George Orwell.
