'Disproportionate' Demonization

"The World is Strangely Blinkered in the Tragedies to Which it Responds."

Mona Charen Describes How the World Values Some Victims More than Others We are reminded daily of how bad things are in Gaza. Certainly all of us pray for that situation to come to an end. David Suissa's Gaza Riviera would be a dream come true.

"68 percent of General Assembly resolutions regarding violations of human rights targeted Israel. Afghanistan was cited in 4 percent of the resolutions along with Azerbaijan, Georgia, the United States and a few others. Russia, Sudan, China, and Saudi Arabia, just to name a few, were not cited at all. In 2007, 32 countries were mentioned for human rights violations, though most just barely. Israel once again topped the list with 121 actions taken against her. Sudan came in second with 61, Myanmar third with 41. The U.S. was No. 4, with 39 actions, tied with the Democratic Republic of the Congo!" -- Mona Charen

Visit and you will see a whole lot of hostility towards Christian minorities in places that never make the nightly news. In places like India, these Christians will bring hope and dignity to people such as the Dhalit [untouchables] and face beatings from brutal Hindu radicals for their efforts. If the media is truely interested in bringing to light human suffering in the world, they have their work cut out for them.
