Blame the Victim

July 27, 2006

Jewish and Christian Conservative opinion writers continue their denunciations of the United Nations in the wake of Israel’s likely intentional bombing of a UN observation post in Lebanon. Most are now responding to Kofi Annan’s statements regarding Israel’s actions by implying that he himself is responsible for the Peacekeepers’ deaths because he refused to pull them out of Lebanon. This sounds suspiciously like something that Saddam Hussein would have said, but of course, since these writers are Christian and Jews, rather then Muslims, we aren’t supposed to point out the absurdity of their claims. Meanwhile, the rest of America continues to pretend the imbroglio in Lebanon, and our own fiasco in Iraq, isn’t about religion.
