Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit flagged this odious Sydney Morning Herald editorial urging Australians to show “empathy” for jihadist hostage-taker Sheikh Haron.

Mark Steyn also took note:

Just a week ago, Hillary Clinton was preaching the same line at Georgetown University.

Progressives. Sigh.

As Twitchy noted earlier today, Australia showed Iranian immigrant Sheikh Haron plenty of “empathy” after he racked up a mile-long criminal rap sheet, but was never deported.
