The Huffington Post, for some reason, published a long article on Peter Beinart and his book Crisis of Zionism, of which tons and tons have been said by people a lot smarter than me, so I have no reason to say anything more. However, the comments section immediately turned into an attack on Israel's democracy (which was a refreshing change from attacks on Israel's existence) and deployment of the ethereal standard was in full effect. Here's an example.
Yes, if Israel's enemies, who are not citizens and do not live in Israel, can't vote in Israeli elections, Israel isn't a democracy. But of course, Mexicans who live in Mexico and aren't American citizens can't vote in American elections, but America is still a democracy. But hey, it's OK, we all know there is one set of standards for Israel and one set for everyone else.
Here's another example (the third most favorited comment)
Again, one standard for Israel, one standard for everyone else.
Double standards means bigotry. But remember, there's no anti-Semitism on the Huffington Post, just "mere criticism of Israel's actions".
