Pilar Rahola speaks

Why don’t we see demonstrations against Islamic dictatorships in London, Paris, Barcelona? Or demonstrations against the Burmese dictatorship? Why aren’t there demonstrations against the enslavement of millions of women who live without any legal protection? Why aren’t there demonstrations against the use of children as human bombs where there is conflict with Islam? Why has there been no leadership in support of the victims of Islamic dictatorship in Sudan? Why is there never any outrage against the acts of terrorism committed against Israel? Why is there no outcry by the European left against Islamic fanaticism? Why don’t they defend Israel’s right to exist? Why confuse support of the Palestinian cause with the defense of Palestinian terrorism? An finally, the million dollar question: Why is the left in Europe and around the world obsessed with the two most solid democracies, the United States and Israel, and not with the worst dictatorships on the planet?

As a leftist myself I wish my "comrades" would prioritise their wrath a bit better... he says with a degree of understatement.

All too true, unfortunately. Most of the Left is unhealthly obsessed with the incredibly false belief that the US and Israel as the chief sources of Evil in the world.

Darfur and Sudan are not entirely forgotten. Here in Washington, DC, the Darfur Interfaith Network is going to have a march for Darfur on Sunday, May 23rd from the Holocaust Museum to Lafayette Park opposite the White House, where a rally will be held. Anyone who will be in the Washington DC area is invited to attend or if you like, contribute.
