SUSPICIOUSLY INCONSISTENT BRITISH BOYCOTT OF THE DAY - BRITS NOT BOYCOTTING THE SIDE THAT STRAPS SUICIDE BELTS TO BRITISH JOURNALISTS
Israeli and Jewish organizations are devoting enormous resources to countering the myriad British boycotts - from journalists and doctors and trade unions and academics - that have recently been leveled against the Jewish state. You know who doesn't have to worry about British boycotts? The Palestinians who strap suicide belts to British hostages and force them to plead for their lives in front of cameras.
It's almost like there's a double standard at work here.
Or - even more unbelievably - that British animus towards Israel is being driven by something other than level-headed analysis regarding the genuine scope of imagined Israeli human rights violations.
While we're on the topic of hypocrisy, make sure you check out the photogallery of Hamas insanity that Anne has up at Boker Tov, Boulder. Safe for work and somewhat less nauseating than some of the other images that have come out of that train wreck - more "they're totally batshit crazy" than "that is a stomach turning and inhuman atrocity".
