Flotillas and Hypocricy

I want to say more about this, but I don't have the time right now, and I want to get something on this blog about it. If you haven't heard, another Flotilla is on its way to Israel, ostensibly to bring aid to Gaza. Click here for a strong, if somewhat strident, opinion about it.

The upshot? We don't have to assert that Israel is perfect, or that it's acted perfectly in Gaza. But, we have to look at the utter, shocking hypocrisy of singling out Israel as the main source of human-rights violations in the Middle East. It's so absurd that it wouldn't be believable, if it weren't true.

Click on the link - Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lybia, Syria and others are daily doing things which far, far outweigh any wrongs that Israel has done. And yet, the "humanitarians" care only about condemning Israel.

When you hear someone shouting about how the evil Israelis must be stopped, remember this. Extreme bias is one form of a lie.
