I think the real difference between blind bigotry and being critical of a group is being specific about what it is that the group is doing that you disagree with.
In this case Pat is taking note of how Israel is being screwed daily in the UN. So he feels free to criticize the UN. He also recognises that there is a block of votes that come from countries that identify them selves as Islamic, and how they group together to attack Israel.
Countries that identify themselves as Islamic and at the same time they don’t think that Israel should be a Nation that identifies itself as Jewish.
This is NOT some crazy idea. On this he is absolutely right. Of the 57 leaders of these states, most do NOT represent their citizens. Even if every citizen in those 57 states were loving peaceful un biased individuals it would NOT matter one bit. The citizens in a dictatorship do not make policy. They do not effect the vote that their dictator makes in UN.
I don’t think that the Dictator rules the dictatorship is cognitive dissonance or bigotry.
