Quotation from Amos Oz “Victimhood entitles its owners to a moral exemption” — 1987

In a collection of essays. He ironically mocks Menachem Begin and his justifications for the invasion of Lebanon in 1982.

Author : Thematics :
" Our sufferings have granted us immunity papers, as it were . . . After what all those dirty goyim have done to us, none of them is entitled to preach morality to us. We, on the other hand, have carte blanche, because we were victims and have suffered so much. Once a victim, always a victim, and victimhood entitles its owners to a moral exemption. "
