For Barak, morality is a matter of geography

Barak

From a report on a briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee by Defense Minister Ehud Barak today (December 28 2009)

Barak also condemned the Islamic regime’s crackdown on opposition protesters, a day after at least eight demonstrators were killed across Iran.

“These demonstrators are just looking for a normal life,” he said. “It bothers me to say the way the free world is responding to what’s going on there? They are crushing civilians from above, there.”

This, from the man responsible for the suppression of the Palestinian non-violent protest movement.

Not that I’m comparing, but still, glass houses and all that.
