How respectable people demonstrate

Verity has sent me a link to some photographs taken at the pro-Israel demonstration in Kenton at the weekend. I would have attended (in my IDF T-shirt...) had I not been up to my eyeballs in work. Naturally the media paid rather less attenntion to this than the SWP's Hizbollah love-in.

As she puts it, "These are great pics, and not a one threatening death, beheading or mayhem". Any additional comment by me would be superfluous.

Further detail at Ynet.com including this comment from Dr Sacks (long my favourite clergyman - a wise and humane man) :

"Israel is fighting today in Lebanon because six years ago it withdrew from Lebanon. Israel is fighting today in Gaza because one year ago it withdrew from Gaza. And Israel discovered the terrible truth spoken by the late Mother Theresa - that no good deed goes unpunished."

Meanwhile, an update from eslewhere. I don't often go to left leaning web sites and expect to agree with posts, but there was much vigorous nodding at Croydonian Towers when I read this at Harry's Place and this.

Here's a comment from the first thread:

"Lenins toilet is full tonight. This is the best so far from a "socialist" in New Zealand pinpointing her exact Vichy moment: "We socialists had a telling off from a Muslim woman for not chanting "Victory to Hezbollah", so we took a vote and decided to adopt that slogan, and I'm proud of it. And no, I honestly did not make that up.

Who are whose useful idiots now, I wonder?

they didnt need to threaten death and destruction, they are already carrying it out.
One thing I loathe about Arabs/Muslims is that they are on the whole blowhards , some are tough , but they just dont seem to be able to get it together and wipe that s***** country off the map , so much for Muslim brotherhood.
If they ever do get it together I for one will be pleased.

It is fair to say that we are not going to agree on this one PCF.

Some years back I read a book called 'The Samson Option' by Seymour Hersh, which covers the Israeli nuclear programme. They had a rough and ready nuclear capacity even at the time of the '73 war, but the finger on the trigger was stayed.

The Samson option is the idea that if sufficiently threatened they could destroy their enemies while also destroying themselves. As things stand, the Israelis have the capacity to fuse the Middle East from sand to glass. (Note for any nuclear physicists reading - that comment should be read metaphorically rather than literally)

One thing I noticed, Croydonian, was the apparent lack of a police presence. It seems the Met naturally expects Jews to be well-behaved and self-policing. The lack of many police about speaks volumes.

A very good point.

Any mainstream media coverage he asked hopefully, but doubtfully.
