Trying looking elsewhere for friends

A Jerusalem Post columnist asks the difference between the counter-insurgency tactics employed by Israel and Sri Lanka.

He can’t understand why the Jewish state is condemned for tackling “terrorism”, but Sri Lanka is seemingly praised for routing the Tamil Tigers.

In fact, both countries employ terror to achieve their goals and neither will succeed.

Of course, if Sri Lanka wants to use Israel as its model, it will soon find itself isolated by the bulk of the world.
