Freedom for Palestine. Nothing, apparently, about say, Egypt, or Tunisia, or Syria, or Bahrain, or, for that matter, the Malvinas Islands, or Ceuta and Melila in North Africa, or the displaced Aborigines in Australia, etc. It’s depressing how long that list is, but like the UN, only Palestine commands the attention of British celebrities.
