Israel never occupied the moral high ground to begin with. They were 
successful in beguiling the world for many years that their actions were in self 
defense - a lone citadel of democracy surrounded by the Arab heathen - and managed 
to conceal their crimes behind a veneer of victimhood, divine purpose and 
exceptionalism. Though I agree that increasingly the world is awakening to that 
fact, nonetheless it has been a fact since 1948 and the Nakba.
