cHindu back to the routine of beating up Israel

cHindu in its routine of "secular" and "minority" appeasement once again beats up on Israel. Without doing any research it opines,
The Tomb of the Patriarchs, also known as the Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron, and Rachel's Tomb, known as Masjid Bilal in Bethlehem, are heritage structures of importance to Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike. Notwithstanding the universally accepted interfaith character of these sites and their location in occupied Palestinian territory, Israel recently included them in its national heritage list, designating them for renovation as Jewish heritage sites. This cannot pass as a benign attempt to conserve old buildings.

They base this statement on,
Neither is it an isolated incident. Earlier, affected Palestinian families appealed to the United Nations to stop Israel and a Jewish organisation from constructing a museum over an ancient Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem.

The NY Times exposes this as a fallacy,
Responding to the latest protests, Rabbi Marvin Hier, the dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said in a statement: “The Museum of Tolerance project is not being built on the Mamilla Cemetery. It is being built on Jerusalem’s former municipal car park, where every day for nearly half a century, thousands of Muslims, Christians and Jews parked their cars without any protest whatsoever from the Muslim community.”

The problem with cHindu is that it always presents one side of the story without balance and in the process puts its shoe squarely in its pie hole.

DD... for chindu, it is not a question of the rights of minorities or about secularism. Ever since N.Ram took over, chindu has become an untiring champion of Islamic and Arab politics.

Remember, the Islamic countries are notorious for the suppression religious and ethnic minorities. The chindu has never highlighted the plight of minorities in Muslim countries.

The chindu, which was in the forefront for calling the establishment of a secular republic in Nepal, has never demanded or would never support a demand, for the establishment of secular republics in Muslim countries.

Remember, when the Hindu minority in Malaysia peacefully protested against discrimination by the Muslim majority, the chindu openly denounced them.

Have you ever seen the chindu reporting on the plight of Pandits in Kashmir, Hindus & Sikhs in Pakistan or Hindus & Buddhists in Bangladesh?

thanks for your comments. It is annoying to see cHindu parrot hegemonisting bigoted ideologies.
LiC wouldn't have the cojones to call out the same in Islamic nations.
Its a main reason why this blog calls out cHindu for its hypocrisy.
