You can’t make stuff like this up.
Several thousand left-wing activists gathered in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on Saturday evening, calling for an end to bloodshed in the Gaza Strip and a return to negotiations with the Palestinians.
So, yeah, how did that go?
The demonstrations were cut short when Hamas unilaterally ended a humanitarian truce with Israel and resumed rocket-fire from Gaza.
Fortunately for the hardcore protesters, the Israeli government is more concerned with their safety than Hamas apparently is; the combination of the early shutdown and, of course, Iron Dome*: no casualties were reported. Although five bucks says that not many people in that crowd will really get the contradiction. Being a member of the antiwar movement in general is not exactly compatible with a stellar capacity for reason: but being one in Israel? I’d like to know how many of them can actually tie their own shoes.
Via The People’s Cube, who admit that reality has defeated them here. This is the sort of satire that you’d expect from that site… but it really happened.
*You know: that totally ineffectual missile defense system that completely coincidentally has been deployed during a nigh-completely ineffectual rocket attack campaign by Hamas. …Man, I can’t imagine what it must be like to have Thou shalt not believe in SDI as part of your personal religion.
