It's Not the Palestinians; It's the Jews

Michael Totten explains why the World is apparently uninterested (yes, really) in Gaza.
An extraordinary amount of time and energy has been spent in the last ten days denouncing Israel for its supposedly inhumane treatment of Gaza, but Hamas — under which Palestinians fare orders of magnitude worse — gets a pass from most of the people yelling at Israel. It’s not hard to figure out who and what all the fuss is really about. If Gaza weren’t at war with a half-Western Jewish country, Palestinians who suffer as a result would get no more attention than victims of the civil conflict in Yemen.
And for those who believe that it's paranoid to point this out, I don't believe that Totten is Jewish.
