How the world flips when Jews go to war

A very good article that should be read by every BBC 'journalist'...
Here's an extract:
'As for Palestinians existing in Arab states, they  might as well not exist, so little do people think of them. In 1970, when the PLO threatened his throne, King Hussein of Jordan had no qualms about slaughtering thousands of Palestinians in "Black September." 

Six years later Lebanese militias, backed by the Syrians, massacred some 3,500 Palestinians in the Beirut camp of Tel Zaatar. 

The militias again slaughtered hundreds of Palestinians in 1982 in the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila, then under the Israeli commander, Ariel Sharon's watchful eye. 

In the summer of 2007, the Lebanese army killed hundreds of Palestinians in the refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared. 

After the 1991 Persian Gulf War, Kuwaitis punished the PLO for its support of Saddam Hussein —cutting off support, expelling 440,000 Palestinian workers, and massacring them in their thousands. 

In 2013 the butcher of Syria, President Assad, starved hundreds of Palestinians to death in a refugee camp. And the world over people studied their fingernails.

To put this home truth into a handy formula: Muslim crimes on Palestinians are Muslim business. Palestinian crimes on Israelis are no one's business. Israeli crimes on Palestinians are everyone's business. '
Something for the institutionally anti-Israel BBC to ponder on?

How the Hell have I allowed that to slip from my memory? I now recall Sabra and Shatila. Interesting final paragraph, how to make it a head-worm to infect the thoughts of the BBC?
