Why no outcry over jihadists?

RADIO 4 news on the evening of August 7 included an eyewitness from a northern Iraqi Christian town who told of thousands of dead bodies, many women and children, who had been killed by the jihadist Isis terrorists.

Where is the condemnation from Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Baroness Warsi, George Galloway et al against the bloodthirsty Isis group to match their criticism of Israel's attempt to defend itself?

Their silence – and of groups such as Amnesty – reveals the degree of their hatred towards Israel.

David Cameron, thank you for being a mensch.
