The problem is I think there some left wingers who say the underdog is always right in a conflict and that is just not true in every case. Salman Rushdie pointed out this blind spot some left wingers have and he is hardly some Fox News arch Conservative. Its seems like a lot of rabid pro Palestinian supporters make the same mistake a lot of rabid pro Israeli supporters make, they turn this into a black and white conflict, when its a gray area. They present themselves as heroes and the other side as villains and thus everything gets oversimplified. Nothing is ever going to change with this mind set in place, real life is more complicated then that.
So true.
