The media wrung its hands over Palestinian casualties — collateral damage, thanks to Hamas using Shifa Hospital as cover for rocket launches and intentionally embedding itself in populated areas.

Now that the foreign press corps in Israel and Gaza have set the bar on concern for civilian casualties, will we see a similar level of righteous indignation at Syria?

Or do only Palestinians enjoy disproportionate coverage?
