A Double Standard

Yesterday, Binyamin Netanyahu, Premier of Israel, stood before the United Nations and said:
"To those who refused to come and to those who left in protest, I commend you," he said. "But to those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency?"
Israel's Premier Fires Back in Speech
His people?  He's Premier of Israel and Israel is only 75% Jewish. What about the rest of Israel? Aren't they "his people," too?

If an American President were to go before the United Nations and say the United States was a Christian nation, he'd be roundly criticized. Yet, at 86% Christian, the United States is more Christian than Israel is Jewish.

Who will condemn Netanyahu?
