"this is a serious question (6+ / 0-)
A woman was executed this week in Saudi Arabia for practicing witchcraft.
That was a deliberate, pre-meditated, state act by a totalitarian government against their own citizens, violating any notion of human rights.
Now certainly, that should qualify as something that should register with those concerned with "A Just Middle East"... shouldn't it? But the group entitled "A Just Middle East" responded with complete silence. So why are the diaries from the group supposedly about "A Just Middle East" concerned only with the I/P conflict, and demonizing Israel?
Even the massacres and torture of children and thousands of others in Syria has gotten no attention from "A Just Middle East". Yes, you republished a diary by someone else, but you didn't write your own. Instead it is all Israel criticism, all the time. There are 200 million people in the middle east, and maybe 8 million of them live in Israel and Palestine. That's 4%.
Why is "A Just Middle East" defined so narrowly? Obviously, we all know the answer to that, but I would like to have it articulated.
I think it is fraudulent and misleading to call this group "A Just Middle East" when all you do is criticize Israel. Just please be honest and call it the "We don't like Israel" group.

The reason, of course, is that the progressive-left does not actually care about social justice or human rights.
Haven't we already established this fact?
Way to go fizziks! Clearly we all know the answers.ReplyDelete
Hope that this comment and some of the responses might form the basis of a diary.ReplyDelete
I might take the antisemites hypocrisy more seriously if they EVER even once had something to say about the perverted culture that makes Palestinian men think it's heroic and good to cut the head off a 3 month old baby.ReplyDelete
I found this from the diarist to be the Orwellian comment of the day:ReplyDelete
"I love Israel. This is why all of this is so very troubling to me."
Yeah we have all seen soysauce's love for Israel. Surely her antisemitic nose is 6 feet long telling fibs like this.ReplyDelete
The worst are those who claim to care about Israel even as they demonize. Martha is like that, as was Eiron.ReplyDelete
There is something insidious about claiming to care for a person or a people even as you join with others to kick the crap out of your professed love.
