When is 140 less than nine?

June 10, 2010

When it’s 140 Muslims killed by Chinese police, as opposed to nine killed by Israeli soldiers on the Gaza flotilla. In the latter case, the world’s reaction has been to scream outrage at the Israelis. The UN demands an investigation. Even the US is stabbing its ally creating distance between itself and Israel.

And the reaction to the deaths of 14 times that number at the hands of the Chinese police? Why, I believe I can hear the proverbial pin drop.

So, what’s the difference? Why are nine lives worthy of more outrage than 140? Could the deciding factor be that they were killed by Jews?

Nah. Couldn’t be.
