Crackdown in Syria -- world unmoved

Reports of a new round of civilian deaths in Syria. Also, possible troop mutiny in Daara (Deraa). Multiple eyewitnesses report that the 5th Army unit refused orders to fire on protesters, prompting the 4th Unit (commanded by one of Assad's family) to fire on the 5th unit, which returned fire.

I will point out that this is why Israelis and Israel's supporters roll their eyes a lot at the level of outrage often expressed wrt actions taken by the Israeli government to suppress Palestinian protest. It's not a question of one justifying the other. It's just that no one gives a crap unless its Jews.
