Selectivity - the acid test

Reader comment on: France: The Taboo of Muslim Racism and Anti-Semitism - Part II

Submitted by geoffrey ben-nathan, Mar 20, 2017 10:28

So often, the Left, the Right as well, extreme and unfortunately not so extreme, are caught 'closing a blind' to this or that. Their passion, their fury against Jews and / or 'Zionists' is matched by a strange insouciance for real outrages committed elsewhere: ISIS or North Korea or Sudan or Syria are but a few examples.

Mehdi Meklat and Linda Sarsour are outraged only by those whom they proclaim to be Zionists.

What does this selectivity tell us? It tells us that they have a deeper agenda, that they want to get at one target group at any cost - to the exclusion of many others.

This alone speaks volumes. It also tells us they are not be taken seriously. Finally, the moment selectivity is perceived, it should immediately be challenged. Unfortunately, many in the media are sympathetic to it. They do, and will do, nothing.
