Israel is routinely beset by attacks, physical and rhetorical, at the hands of its hostile neighbors and the Western media and elite.

Otherwise we would see equally strong denunciations of Putin and Russia, ISIS and China.
This has to do with that it is once again fashionable to hate Jews. Oh, it's dressed up with I don't hate Jews, I just hate Israel, but that's a thin disguise.
