Spielberg and Human Rights

I have no problem with Spielberg making a political point on a country with a very poor human rights record.

But Spielberg ought to be consistent.

Spielberg supports Israel (but not Israeli tactics unconditionally, which is admirable), which has one of the worst human rights records in history. The seige of Gaza right now is ongoing, and I have not heard Spielberg speak out against this obvious injustice.

But he says China ought to be more concerned with the situation in Darfur? He is right, and I wish he would apply the same passionate critique to the IDF and the Israeli policy in general.
