Double Standards 2

November 24, 2016 22:51

200 people injured,
at least 26 dead, where is this? Pakistan.
Does any one care?
The information is buried on the inside pages of the BBC News web site.
Again, where is the outcry and calls for emergency sessions from the UN?
Where are the demonstrations outside the Pakistani Embassy?
Where is the outpouring of sympathy from Claire Short, Tony Benn and all our favourite lefty MP's including George Galloway, what about a convoy of aid for the Pakistani's George?
Israel is not involved, so who cares?
Instead of the front pages reporting the carnage that is going on in the Swat Valley with the very serious consequences of the Taliban gaining a foothold in the Nuclear Armed State of Pakistan proper, what do we get on the front pages?
Israel must stop its "settlement" activities.
Again, I will just say - "Double Standards".
