Shift focus from Israel to Muslim-on-Muslim violence

To the editor:

It appears the whole world is up in arms about one issue — Israel and its relations with Palestinians. Every world leader is intent on getting his/her jab at Israel while at the same time skimming over Palestinian responsibilities.

But what is more important is that Muslims are slaughtering each other in the hundreds of thousands, yet the burr in everyone's side is Israel and the Palestinians. Seems to me that since no one knows how or what to do with Muslims murdering each other — Assad canceling a ceasefire 48 hours after it took effect — the Russians and the Americans bombing their respective oppositions groups — the one thing left to talk about is Israel. But not the Palestinians and their responsibilities.
