Humor works best when it deflates the privileged and the powerful. Not so much when it comes from those who command F-16s and bulldozers against a captive civilian population. This whole "why are you paying attention to our crimes, shouldn't you be protesting those other crimes" line of argument is repugnant. How can you protest the Dreyfus affaire given what the Belgian's are doing in the Congo? Why are you complaining about Kristalnacht in which only 91 died when a quarter million were killed in the rape of Nanking? This kind of calculus elevates no one.
