I am a hypocrite

Yes, I am one.

A young Iranian woman shot by paramilitary sniper during a protest and not a single whimper from me.

Now, insert the word Israeli soldier (nay even, better, a Zionist) therein and make the victim a Palestinian (for example), and see ME raise a hue and cry, of anger and bitterness at the injustice.

Snipers Israeli and Iranian had their cross eye on their would-be victims and both took the shot.

The former during the occupation of the Gaza strip, the latter a recent protest in Tehran.

For sheer cruelty, both are no different.

And yet, I am strangely silent when the aggressor is perceived as a Muslim brother.

Of course, bashing Israelis are easy since they are the personified evil in the Muslim eyes.

And I am one.

Spot on, am I not?

Neda Agha-Soltan, died from sniper shot June 20.

Rest in peace...

Are they all the sons and daughters of the Internet Generation lost of liberalism? I doubt so.

Muslims will be muslims, but politicians will always be manipulators, no matter in what guise.
