how much pressure is there on other countries, especially the arab countries, to declare thier allegience to democracy, to being states for all of thier citizens, not officially Arab states, to renounce Islam as the official religion, to respect the equal rights of women, of homosexuals, of Jews, of Christians, of the Bahai, of atheists, of freedom of the press, and of human rights groups to criticise the government? isnt it clear how the rhetoric of human rights is used to vilify Israel in these cases? why apply these standards only to us? Im all for human rights, but why are leftists blind to this double standard?
