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?
