13. Israel is... fine as example of a liberal state that exists East of Rhone. But, when liberal Israelis find themselves vilified by people who claim to be liberals themselves, how do you expect them to respond? Israel isn't perfect. No country is. But, name another country that has kept its liberal society after nearly 70 years of real and existential threat. Israel is such a country, under siege both literal and rhetorical from the people who should be supporting it. The longer that siege continues, the harder it will be for Israel to maintain the liberal values she was founded on.
