Where are all the lefties in kaffiyas?

This was almost a month ago now: Army crushes Palestinian refugee camp.

...The army has pushed slowly into the camp, fighting close-quarter battles with Fatah al-Islam militants after bombarding its positions with artillery and tank fire to try to force the group to surrender.

Witnesses said the army concentrated its latest artillery shelling on pockets still held by Fatah al-Islam near the camp's main road and the northeastern area.

The camp, home to 40,000 refugees before the hostilities, has been completely destroyed and it was expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars to rebuild. Its residents have sought shelter in other Palestinian refugee camps.

So, as Orbital asks, where's the "world wide condemnations and UN investigatory committees?" Where are the liberal churchmen who always bemoan harm to Palestinians (by Israel)? Where are the protesters, where the giant puppets, where are the candle-light vigils? Why no demands for "divestiture" by Ivy League colleges or Mainline Protestant denominations? Where are the Quakers?

The homes of 40,000 Palestinians destroyed—crushed, flattened, pulverized—by tanks and artillery—and not a single protest? Gee, I wonder why. What could be different in this story?

How I despise lefty Jew-haters. Frauds and shams, all of them.
