Where are the Arab street protests over Syria’s bloodbaths?
The people who tend to organise protests often voice their outrage about “Western double standards”. What about their own double standards? When Israel kills Arabs, they are easily stirred to outrage. When an Arab leader kills many more Arabs, they are less concerned. Meanwhile, the only round-the-clock political protest in London seems to be an ugly banner in Parliament Square protesting about Nato’s presence in Afghanistan. Wrong target, wrong place. What about protesting against Assad in Belgrave Square?
