U.N. Standards?

Joseph Klein compares the plight of the Tibetans to that of the Palestinian Arabs in light of the glaring double standard applied to the two cases by the United Nations.

An excellent companion piece to the Klein article is last week's Dennis Prager column on the same theme.

The disparate level of outrage on the political left is explainable at least in part by the fact that one situation permits a pose of anti-Americanism while the other does not. The U.N. is a quicker study. Today's United Nations treats Israel as the worst international outlaw in its human rights portfolio. And China's veto renders it immune from sanction anyway. Time for the League of Democracies.
