    Firstly I'm not taking sides in the Palestine Israeli conflict.

    The left in Western Europe seems to be obsessed with the Isreali occupation of Palestine and their hate of Zionists.
    It isn't just Palestine that's sufferers. What about the Kurds in Turkey who have faced decades of suffering from the Turkish government? Or is that ok because Turkey isn't Jewish?
    Kurds have had their towns and cities in Eastern Turkey besieged by Erdogan's troops. Kurds in Syria have been attacked by Erdogans troops for fighting back against ISIS.
    Also what about Papuan rascal gangs who burn mosques in Indonesian Irian Jaya? They never get mentioned.

    Then the left also prioritises its obsession with Palestine over the social problems at home such as the Tories war against the poor and cruel benefits cuts and reforms.

    Why is the plight of Palestinians the lefts main obsession?
