SATIRE: We Need To Kill Lots Of Jews, But Not So Many That We Lose Sympathy

Overdoing it risks blurring the roles of victim and victimizer, so we have to be careful to kill only as many Jews at once as the world considers reasonable.
Of course that number does not remain constant, fluctuating as it does with various events that bring a waxing and waning of international interest in Jewish welfare. That unpredictability accounts for many of the optics failures of the Palestinian national cause over the last five decades.
