Selective Indignation

Lots of politically correct lefties and some Middle Eastern clerics expressed outrage at the French ban on headscarves. They were right to do so. We here in the West do not legislate dress, leave that to Saudi Arabia and the Mullahs in Iran. But where are those clerics now? Where is the outcry over kidnapped journlalists in Iraq or the hostage taking and killing of children in Russia?

Oh yeah that's right. The Israelis occupy the Palestinians and they built a fence, so kidnapping and slaughter of children is given a pass. But don't worry France is hot on the trail, they have secured endorsements from Yassar Arafat, Hamas, and Moqtada Al-Sadr.
