double standards
it is amazing how blatant the double standards are in the west these days. when salman rushdie writes a satanic verses and the muslim world protests it is an attack on his freedom of expression, he get feted with all sorts of awards with scant regard for the deep religious sentiments for almost one sixth of the world's population. now, when al jazeera reports on the war they get banned from nyse and nasdaq and get labeled as biased, the geneva convention is touted and their website gets a dos attack. why does the us and britain get to decide what is right, what is wrong and how the world should conduct itself. by imposing it's own ideas of freedom on the world, the west is not being true to the very essence of that concept.
this article on the al jazeera english website is quite a good read.
