Surefire political and human rights integrity test

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/08/surefire-political-and-human-rights.html

Are you read for this? This is a test that is guaranteed to tell the hypocrites from the real believers in human rights.
 
Suppose there was the following headline:
 
Bush government arrests four anti-War Democrats
 
Story:
 
FBI agents arrested four anti-war Democrats  late Friday in Washington D.C. for "violating the law," according to the government, sparking a protest from relatives of those arrested.

Some 150 woman and children took to the streets, storming the justice department, demanding their relatives be freed. Witnesses said the protesters were beaten with sticks. Ten were evacuated to a local clinic for treatment, medical officials said.

The arrests mark the first time the Bush administration acknowledged it had arrested people because of their anti-war stance. In the past, the Bush administration had claimed to only arrest individuals for specific crimes such as terrorist activity.
What is your opinion of these arrests in Washington? Please write down your answer - no cheating.
1- Justified because of the national emergency.
2- Unjustified, but understandable given the provocations of the opposition.
3- Unjustified infringement on civil liberties.
4 - Outrage that is the result of Zionist machinations and neocon fanaticism.
 
Now here is the real headline.
Hamas forces arrested four Fatah members late Friday in the northern Gaza Strip for "violating the law," Hamas said, sparking a protest from relatives of those arrested.

Some 150 woman and children took to the streets, storming Hamas headquarters in the town of Beit Hanoun, demanding their relatives be freed. Witnesses said the protesters were beaten with sticks. Ten were evacuated to a local clinic for treatment, medical officials said.

The arrests mark the first time since Hamas's bloody takeover of the Gaza Strip that it acknowledged it had arrested Fatah members because of their affiliation. In the past, Hamas had claimed to only arrest individuals for specific crimes.
What is your opinion of these arrests in Gaza? Please write down your answer - no cheating.
1- Justified because of the national emergency.
2- Unjustified, but understandable given the provocations of the opposition.
3- Unjustified infringement on civil liberties.
4 - Outrage that is the result of Islamist fanaicism and Syrian machinations.
 
Compare your answers. Are they the same in both cases? Subtract the value of the first answer from the second and square it. Subtract the result from 10.
EG 4-1 = 3; Squared = 9; Subract from 10 = 1
1-3= -2 Squared = 4 Subtract from 10 = 6.
2-3 = -1 Squared = 1 Subtract from 10 = 9.
1-1= 0. Squared = 0; subtract from 10 = 10.
 
 Scoring:
10 - You are perfectly consistent in your views.
  9 - You tend to make "allowances" for one side or the other.
  6-  You probably read Counterpunch or Frontpage magazine.
  1-  Are you a Guantanamo detainee, living in a cave in Afghanistan or a friend of Dick Cheney?
