moral bearings?

In his WasPost op-ed Charles Krauthammer claims that the world has lost its "moral bearings" in relation to the latest conflict in the Middle East. I ask, what moral bearings? What planet did he come from that the habitual blame of Israelis, (blame the Jews, really) is not an incitement for further violence against the people that Europe as an example try to destroy so many times in history. Israel, now as if a gigantic ghetto, is not sittting passively as the Jewish people did for centuries. Israelis are doing what they did in the Poland Ghetto uprising. They are fighting for their lives and for their land. One just hopes the outcome is radically different. The world does not run on moral or ethical bearings. The world runs on economic priorities and has the weight of "tradition" and history on its shoulders. And tradition and history have shown again and again that those who don't stand up for themselves will likely be crushed, as Jews were for centuries both in their homeland and successive diasporas.
