To be Jewish does not imply condoning every Israeli act. The BBC and others compound this false identification every time they speak of 'Jewish settlers': they are Israeli settlers.
It is not a tenet of Judaism to occupy particular pieces of territory or to engage in actions that kill more innocent civilians than terrorists. I am glad to say that there are many Israelis, as well as non-Israeli Jews, who oppose such policies. The first Israeli bombing of Lebanon, when we saw a children's hospital hit by Israeli fire, should have been enough. Distinguishing right from wrong is supposed to be an obligation of Judaism.
