Still, commentators such as Alan Colmes opine: "To speak out against this despicable act isn't to hate Israel, but rather to love it, and peace."
So why don't left-wing pundits love Turkey for a while? That nation, after all, not only instigated this event but also is home to more than 25 million Kurds living in occupied territories -- Kurds who deal with daily human rights abuses: torture, mass disappearances and assaults on their language and culture.
No emergency sessions at the United Nations for them.
No editorial cartoons depicting their victimhood.
Not many columnists spinning overwrought tales about their plight.
And no U.S. administration is pressuring Turkey to give Kurds their own state.
Because there is always a disproportionate response by critics who claim that Israel and its supporters are the ones with naked and irrational hostility toward ... well, folks who want to see them as smoldering ash.
In all probability, Israel's biggest failure is taking the bait.
