The problem of course is that those who attack and condemn Israel, claiming to be doing so in the interests of the Palestinian Arabs, in fact demonstrate precious little concern for Arabs.
Khaled Abu Toameh notes that pro-Palestinian activists ignore the human rights violations and abuses Palestinian Arabs suffer under Abbas and Hamas:
The pro-Palestinian camp in the West should raise its voice against violations of human rights and media freedoms under the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.Those pro-Palestinian activists seem to operate under the motto "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"--Israel is the issue for these people, and the Palestinian despots provide the convenient cover allowing to carry on their media war against Israel.
In the past few weeks, six Palestinian journalists, bloggers and cartoonists were arrested by security forces belonging to the Palestinian government in the West Bank.
The pro-Palestinian activists around the world chose to turn a blind eye to the ongoing crackdown on freedom of expression in the West Bank.
They also failed --- even refused -- to condemn the Palestinian Authority government's decision to block web sites that are critical of Palestinian leaders in the West Bank.
The pro-Palestinian activists in the West also refuse to examine what is happening under Hamas in the Gaza Strip. They apparently do not care, or do not want to see, that there are executions, arbitrary arrests, and assaults against women and torture in Hamas prisons.
The pro-Palestinian activists and organizations also do not seem to care if the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are brainwashing Palestinian children and filling their minds and hearts with hatred.
