8. Not so
Edited on Mon Nov-14-11 06:54 AM by LeftishBrit
There are certainly some DU-ers who unjustly consider Israel as worse than anywhere else, and I object when I see such statements - but you claim that 'it is NEVER DU policy to be critical of any state other than Israel'?

Plenty of criticism of the USA; UK; Russia; China. Even if you just mean Middle Eastern states, there are plenty of criticisms of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, etc.

Indeed, in this very thread there is a post that claims that it is 'not so very different' (from the dystopia described) 'in the US'. I would disagree with that claim, at least as regards the present time; but it goes againat the argument that *only* Israel comes in for this sort of criticism.
