Lefties are blind to barbaric acts

Reports from Afghanistan of yet another expression of Muslim culture so beloved of lefties here in Ireland. Apparently, a young couple trying to elope were stoned to death because they offended someone's sensibilities.
This is barbarism posing as culture and yet nowhere in their statement do the 164 artists proclaiming a cultural boycott of Israel acknowledge that the horror of Sharia Law inflicted on these young lovers is what faces the people of Israel should the forces of Muslim fascism succeed in overrunning their democracy.
Some of the artists supporting this boycott are noted for their concern for women's rights and the rights of the gay community, yet it's universally acknowledged that the one place in the whole of the Middle East where it is safe and liberating to be both is Israel.
