Argentina's vote in unacceptable to Israel as it ignores Hamas terrorism and the firing of close to 4,500 rockets at Israeli citizens, said the FM's envoy to Latin America and the Carribean.
I know you meant this scornfully, but there is nonetheless truth in it. Argebtina is poor and financially desperateGotta kiss up to your new sugar daddies. Maybe you'll get some vacines or a railroad out of it.
I have mixed reactions to this. Argentina's vote was morally correct, in my opinion, but supporting the Zionists would have been more advantageous in a purely pragmatic sense. Especially if that support could have been leveraged into some material support with the IMF, for example. Being a friend to Israel can be profitable, and being an enemy to Israel can be damn dangerous.
You are correct, from a pragmatic sense.... when pragmatism perpetuates a morally reprehensible policy, it only gets worse.....as one with a Jewish heritage ( non-practicing) , I grieve the fact that under Netanyahu, Israel has made the transition from being '' the oppressed '' to being '' the oppressor''... this cannot, and should not be ignored or condoned.
