These too are forms of avoiding reality. This is a war between two people. Who is the enemy? The Palestinian people. Why? Ask them, they started.

  45. I don’t know why it’s so hard for us to define reality with the simple words that language puts at our disposal.

Every war is between two peoples, and in every war the people who started the war, that whole people, is the enemy. A declaration of war is not a war crime. Responding with war certainly is not. Nor is the use of the word 'war', nor a clear definition who the enemy is.
