The argument that we must stick by an ally, and support that ally’s actions no matter how morally and ethically apprehensible they may be, simply because historically we have been allies… that is possibly the worst argument I have ever heard in my entire life.
That’s like saying, OK, you’re my friend so I will enable you to drink and drive, because you know what, you’re my friend and you should be able to do what you want.
That’s like saying, OK, you’re my brother and even though you beat your wife, I’m not going to say anything because you’re my brother and you can do what you want and it’s none of my business.
That’s like saying, OK, you’re my priest and even though I know you sexually abuse my children, I’m going to side with you because you’re my priest and I’m going to look the other way.
OK, ally, just keep slaughtering innumerable civilians and justifying it by pointing to attacks that do 1/100th of the damage that you’re doing to this people in this land that you have forcefully occupied. I’ll just be over here, looking the other way, because we’ve been allies for the last 60 years.
