Because Herr Hermann is completely, irrationally, obsessed by....THE JOOOOZZZZ. THE JOOOOZZZZZ control the world! THE JOOOOZZZZ kill Christian children to use their blood to make matza! THE JOOOOOZZZZ are out to get you! If TH columnists never wrote about Israel, Herr Hermann would have to start reading the Jerusalem POst online. And, yes, Ananymous, Israel does have a higher moral standing than its enemies. There is no moral equivalence between the Jews who wish only to live in their ancestral homeland in peace, and the bloodthirsty Muslims whop want to kill Jews wherever they may be found (which is why Herr Hermann sides with Muslims against the JOOOOZZZZ).
