Panteilis Boukalas on the inequality of death in Ukraine and Gaza

Public discussion of the casualties in Ukraine and Gaza differs depending on the nationality of the deceased, columnist Pantelis Boukalas comments in the conservative daily Kathimerini: "Corpses are corpses. Whether they're Malaysian, Dutch, Palestinian or Israeli. ... However it seems that in international politics the dead in Ukraine and Gaza aren't dead in the same way. We differentiate between 'our' dead and 'their' dead. 'Their' death doesn't have the same significance or call for angry reactions on the part of the interest groups concerned. And it puts no onus on the powerful of the earth to seek a common reaction to it. They couldn't care less if their attitude is stringent - that is impartial - and their moral criteria applied consistently, or if these criteria change with the nationality of the victims. The others who mourn their dead have nothing in common with our nationalities or ethnic groups. ... And the real nightmare is that 'our' dead are used to play down the dead of the 'others'."
