Time to reevaluate Israel?

Amnesty International today accused the Syrian regime of crimes against humanity over its crackdown on civilians and called on the UN Security Council to refer the government to the International Criminal Court.

Amnesty gathered evidence by phone from Syrian residents and from Syrians who fled their country.

While the government denies the charges, it would not allow the human rights group inside Syria to investigate for itself and Amnesty's report coincides with more claims of a security crackdown on protests in the town of Hama.

In light of the recent brutal and dictatorial actions by most Arab regimes, isn't it time for "progressives" to reevaluate their constant criticism of Israel?
