Our focus should be on the powerful people who’ve allowed their biologically inherited empathy trait to atrophy, to be self-anesthetized in order to pursue their ambitions within the rules of the game. We have empathy. We support the last religious minority in the Middle East (Jews in Israel) to not be ethnically cleansed by Muslim extremists.
It is really simple as that.
No you don't; and no it isn't.
What "you" have for Israel / Jewish people in Israel, is sympathy.
It's a different thing.
"You" are sympathetic to the "plight [sic]" of Israelis, because the narrative that has been woven around Israel matches the long, lost Pioneer Age of the Old West.
"You" are also sympathetic because most of Israel's enemies are also "your" enemies... Though that isn't saying much, because most other nations are "your" enemy at this stage, one way or another. Of course, having so many enemies of your own, there's no way all of your enemies are also Israel's enemies... The "arrangement" doesn't cut both ways, and Israel's massive Russian emigré population means Tel Aviv will always have a Hotline to Moscow, long after it disconnects the one that runs from Jerusalem to Washington.
Sympathy just means that you've chosen to share someone else's pain.
Empathy means you can't help but feel others' pain.
You are sympathetic to the Israeli position, therefore you choose to "feel their pain".
You are not at all sympathetic to the Palestinian position, therefore you do not choose to feel (or even acknowledge) their pain.
If you were capable of Empathy, you would not be able to *NOT* feel the pain of all parties involved.
Yes. I know. It's complicated.
You'll get the hang of it though: what other choice do you have?
