Dangerous Neutralist Sentiment

"Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." 
          ~Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928) 

In other words, those who wish to take a stand against oppressors and tormentors must dedicate themselves to non-neutrality. Fair enough, but whose version?  Some of the world's most accomplished mass murderers--Tamerlane, Stalin, Pol Pot--presumed to speak for the downtrodden. Happily, we have the enlightened Mr. Wiesel to let us know: the Anglo-American-Israeli Empire embodies the noblest aspirations of the human race. It alone practices the One True Homicidal Humanitarianism. What can go wrong?
