Israel Derangement Syndrome of the Day

The other day Rana F Sweis wrote a blog post about a very pertinent and pressing issue in the Middle East: human rights. You should read the whole article for yourself because it's very good, but here's a brief selection:
 "For many decades, Arabs were denied a platform for expression and in turn they were plagued by internal fear and self-censorship. There is no doubt, after the Arab Spring, an internal barrier of fear was lifted.I see this during labor strikes and protests, in art exhibitions and plays that tend to push previous boundaries but where it will all end remains unclear.Western democracies continue to send a message to people in the Middle East: Security and stability trumps human rights issues. But if there is any lesson to be learned from the Arab Spring, it is indeed that human rights is security."
I do like how everything is still our fault, even when the Arabs abuse each other. And it goes without saying that more people live in the Middle East than Arabs. Once again Arab suffering takes precedence over everyone else.

Anyway, the Huffington Post readership made sure that we didn't get the impression they actually gave a damn about the Arabs suffering across the Middle East as they tripped over each other to blame the Left approved Oppressors (tm).

That looks more like the Huffington Post that I know.
