(Sultan Knish)The left's worst crime in the Middle East has been its support for the region's Arab-Muslim majority at the expense of its minorities. It has supported the majority's terrorism, atrocities, ethnic cleansing and repression of the region's minorities. Very rarely has it raised a voice in their support, and when it has done so, it was in muted tones completely different from their vigorous defenses of the nationalism of the Arab Muslim majority.
The left is obsessed with the Arab Spring, which rewards the ambitions of Arabist and Islamist activists at the expense of Coptic, African and other minorities. It is dementedly fixated on statehood for the Arab Muslims of Israel, (better known by their local Palestinian brand), but has little to say about the Kurds in Turkey or the Azeri in Iran. The million Jewish refugees and the vanishing Christians of the region never come up in conversation. They certainly don't get their own protest rallies or flotillas... As the sun of Pan-Arabism sets, the left has turned its attention to
Pan-Islamism with equal enthusiasm. While Pan-Arabism allowed Christian
Arabs some representation, Pan-Islamism excludes based on religion.
Having endorsed a racial tyranny, the left has fallen so low that it now
champions majority theocracies...(MORE KNISH)
