The author reviews Yitz Greenberg's controversial speech, in which Greenberg stated that there are instances when Israeli forces overreact, and those overreactions lead to unnecessary deaths. Greenberg was then attacked for being "anti-Israel," when really, as the author asserts, he was recognizing that no power should excused from criticism. The author prompts media outlets to allow for critics to offer their input, rather than stifling voices that can offer knowledgeable advice.
