Everything Israel does is controversial.

It provided hundreds of thousands of COVID-19 vaccines to the Palestinians who refused them, claiming that they were outdated. Israel sends teams all over the world to help with natural disasters.

It assists African countries improve their agriculture. Israel’s critics accuse it of carrying out these good deeds not out of any natural desire to help, but to whitewash its brutal apartheid regime.

The U.S. embassy in Israel keeps track of housing construction and building permits to deter Israel’s settlements, something I doubt happens anywhere else in the world.

And now, Israel is under the microscope over its policy to help Ukrainian refuges. In Israel’s case, and unlike no other country, no good deed goes unpunished.

Larry Shapiro, Alberta Canada
