Synagogue Vandalised, why do they not care?

Normally a story that a UK Synagogue had been vandalised by religious extremists would make front page news in certain blogs.

Harry's place would be wondering if George Galloway was guilty, or was it his supporters? The bitter and twisted f*ckheads for war would be screaming for an end to the trendy liberalism that excuses this sort of thing while Norm! would be trying to tie the Guardian's comment pages into the atrocity.

Yet what do we find? nothing, not a peep out of the "decent left" have they gone soft on religious violence? do they not care any more.

Or is it to do with who carried out the attack...

AN orthodox Jewish synagogue in Stamford Hill has been attacked and vandalised - not by anti-semetic thugs, but by fellow Jews who regard its leaders' outspoken condemnation of Israel as a betrayal.

Rising tensions over the forced evictions by Israeli troops last month of Jewish settlers from occupied Palestinian territory as part of the Middle East peace process has sparked a backlash among Stamford Hill's orthodox Jewish community.

Windows at the synagogue in Alkham Road were smashed after bottles were hurled at them last Thursday evening and the front of the building was covered with red spray paint.

The synagogue belongs to Neturei Karta, an ultra-orthodox sect opposed to the Zionist political movement that established the state of Israel as a national homeland for Jews.

The sect claims that the concept of a sovereign Jewish state is contrary to the teachings of the torah (Jewish law) and has led to the bloodshed in the Middle East.

Surely this cannot be true? surely the "decent" "left" take any attack as seriously as any other...

We await their response.
