Why Palestine, Indeed?

This article should be printed out and stapled up on the wall of every editorial desk in the world. (h/t insty)

Or, at the very least, write it on their bathroom mirrors:

But it does mean that of all the causes the world could have adopted, the Palestinians' deserved to be near the bottom and the Tibetans' near the top. This is especially so since the Palestinians could have had a state of their own from 1947 on, and they have caused great suffering in the world, while the far more persecuted Tibetans have been characterized by a morally rigorous doctrine of nonviolence.

So, the question is, why? Why have the Palestinians received such undeserved attention and support, and the far more aggrieved and persecuted and moral Tibetans given virtually no support or attention?

And if an editor just happens to be walking by when you read it, be sure to tape a copy of it to the back of their shirt as they do.

For the laughs, of course.

Update: A sensible, if somewhat firm reply from BtB.
