Evelyn Gordon writes in Commentary that representatives of Hamas stayed away from the Tehran conference of the Non-Aligned Movement because Iran is actively helping Syrian dictator Bashar Assad brutally put down the rebellion in his country.
It’s shameful that didn’t stop the Secretary General of the United Nations from attending – where he criticized Iranian behavior without ever mentioning that it was Iran he was criticizing. Gordon writes:
So now we know that even Hamas has a red line: Murdering 19,000 fellow Sunni Muslims is beyond the pale. But for Ban and the other 120 delegates, there are no red lines: Mass murder is fine and dandy.
