...thousands of innocents are being massacred whilst the Arab world watches passively, sending impotent monitors to make useless reports and to have Koffe Annan make pathetic resolutions as to make sure it looks like they and the world are doing something whilst they are all doing nothing. One can be cynical about the UN and the rest of the world who ran to save oil-rich Libya but have left Syria to the dogs, but the biggest disappointment comes from within the Middle East - the failure of Arab brethren to save their own. Actually this is not entirely correct. Iran has sent massive military support to help uphold the brutal Assad regime whist the rest of the Arab world silently watches. In Abu Dhabi there is a horse race to worry about. And for the rest of the Arab world, ... Nakba day, there is something to support!
