All armed confrontations are horrendous without exception. But when Israel is the protagonist there is a disproportionate chain reaction in the whole world.
Only in the last year in different parts of the world countless people have been killed: demonstrators in Venezuela, Turkey, Egypt and Libya, tens of thousands of Syrians (among them thousands of Palestinians) have been exterminated with chemical weapons in Syria, entire communities have been massacred in Afghanistan and Sudan, in Iraq, Pakistan and Nigeria; victims of terrorist attacks total hundreds and there was a record number of people hanged in Iran, accused of offences such as homosexuality, that in the civilized world are not considered such.
In front of all these atrocities, together with conflicts like that of Ukraine and Russia and many others in the world, the answer is silence. Ordinary people and even their political leaders recognize that they do not really understand what it is all about and respond with indifference in front of such humanitarian catastrophes.
