Zionist Hypocrisy Alert

Hypocrisy is a hallmark of Zionist advocacy.

Here, for example, is Michael Weiss, 'communications director' of the UK's Ziocon foreign policy 'think' tank, the Henry Jackson Society, labelling Syrian opposition leader, Burhan Ghalioun's reference to Syria's Arab identity as chauvinistic:

"On the eve of Eid al-Adha, the Islamic Festival of Sacrifice, Syria's de facto opposition leader Burhan Ghalioun delivered an address on international TV. Among the emotional appeals and platitudes befitting a future president, the leader of the Syrian National Council made at least one substantive remark: 'Syria's new constitution will protect minorities and their rights, including the Kurds, who have suffered discrimination'... But Kurds have been wary of joining the SNC's government-in-exile, some on account of the early chauvinist noises - including from Ghalioun - about retaining Syria's 'Arab' identity." (Fate of Syrian revolution rests on the treatment of Kurds, The New Republic/The Australian, 21/11/11)

Needless to say, the same individual had no such qualms in referring to Israel as the Jewish state, despite its 20% Palestinian Arab population, most recently in a 21 September piece in the UK's Daily Telegraph, Barack Obama's UN speech, goes from cutting to confused.
