Assad Adopting Hamas ‘Dead Baby’ Strategy

If the media and the international community continue to enable these tyrannical regimes, the cynical dead baby strategy will expand in scope.

Another reason why this strategy succeeds is that the world seems to care far less about civilian deaths caused by Arab and Muslim nations against their own citizens than deaths caused by Western democracies.  If American bombs were to kill 100 Syrian civilians, there would be more outcry than when 100,000 Syrians, including tens of thousands of civilians, have been killed by Syrian forces on both sides of this civil war.  This is pure and simple racism, holding Western democracies to a higher standard than Muslim tyrannies and theocracies.  It’s is an old story, but it will once again rear its bigoted head when and if American forces kill Syrian civilians who were deliberately placed in harm’s way as human shields by the Syrian regime.

To stop this once and for all, the international community and the media must place the blame for these dead babies where it belongs:  on the shoulders of tyrants who deliberately use their own civilians as human shields.

    for someone who is in mourning on the same day, the doll was killed, the man's beard is over one month old. His make-up artist did a lousy job in preparing the actors for their role.

“Continuum of Civilianality:” Who is a civilian and who is a combatant is often a matter of degree.

But instead the UN is playing right into the hands of Hamas, by sheltering civilians right next to Hamas fighters, Hamas weapons and Hamas tunnels.
