Israel Derangement Syndrome

A new and useful term, coined by Noah Pollak in a Contentions article

IDS is that almost any negative consequences which derive from Arab attacks on Israel are blamed by enlightened elites not on the attackers themselves, but on Israel, especially when the Jewish state’s response to being assaulted does not take the form of absolute and total moral perfection as defined by the UN and the Guardian’s editorial board. IDS in its more subtle forms is so pervasive it largely escapes notice. But it’s still worth noting, once in a while.

.... the Jewish state is expected to act like the only Christian nation in the world.
