at constituents protesting the war crimes Israel was committing with

criticizing Netanyahu?  When he went on a Zionist diatribe in an 
interview with a Palestinian journalist?  When he blamed an Israeli 
massacre of 50 civilians on “Hamas”? When he suggested that Palestinian 
parents train their children to become suicide bombers?
