No, it's not just Israel

So the Chinese premier's three-day visit to London has been disrupted by pro-Tibet rallies, demonstrators, and even a shoe-thrower.

Take note, those who gripe that do-gooders protest against Israeli human rights abuses but not those of China, Sudan, or Zimbabwe.

Seems that, actually, they do.

One shoe throwing incident does not a balancing of Israel hatred make

Oh come on. Surely you don't really believe what you are writing?

Because one person throws a shoe, that means that the obscene silence over every other conflict in the world (and a myopic focus on Israel), by those who claim to be concerned for universal human rights, is a figment of our imagination?

I enjoy reading your columns, but this glib comment does you a disservice.
