Is sanity relative too?

In this days, when moral relativism seems to be gaining more and more ground with extreme sides of the political spectrum, I have stumbled on a single sane voice amidst an orgy of insanity.

Take a look at the comments on comment is free to the Yossi Alper's article "Hamas's blood test".

From the first insane post "Yes, you agree Israel should complete its ethnic cleansing and genocide of Palestine." to the end of it, the discourse follows, more or less, the insane pattern of Guardian Talk mudslinging matches.

And in the middle of it all, as a rare note that is in stark contrast with the cacophony of madness:

Did Abu Mazen condemn the recent suicide attack in TA? I must have missed it. All I heard him saying was that he condemned it because it was against the interests of Palestinians. Not because it was wrong to target women and children.

Thank you, quirky. Just the fact that you exist makes me feel a bit better.
