Why did no one speak up for Israel?

I WATCHED Question Time and, of course, the topic of how “heavy-handed” Israel was killing innocent peaceful protesters came up.

Why was it that in a whole hour’s programme, not one person stood up to give Israel’s point of view?

It was a one-sided debate on a par with the BBC’s biased reporting.

In my opinion, the “innocent peaceful protesters” just wanted to get their hands on any innocent Jewish family to kill them.

Why are our educated Jewish brethren not going to these biased meetings to put forward Israel’s side?

Surely, if we truly believe Israel only wants peace but is forced into violence, someone from our community should stand up and put forward that argument.

Hiding our heads in the sand is not the answer.
