American balance

"The State of Israel discriminates against non-Orthodox streams of Judaism and against Jewish-born believers in Christianity, while the Palestinian Authority has not been doing enough to combat Muslim violence against Christians, according to the US State Department's annual International Religious Freedom Report on Israel released this week." Look how they had to "balance" any criticisms of Israel with a criticism of the Palestinians. Now I detest both Fath and Hamas but neither of them can be accused of persecuting Christians (although Dahlan gangs may have engaged in some thuggery to blame to Hamas). (thanks Sarah)
