Israeli Leftists Have Peace Rally Cut Short When Hamas Started Firing Rockets At Them
It doesn’t matter where you are in the world: liberals are still stupid. Case in point? Israeli left-wing activists held a peace protest to stop the conflict in the Gaza strip, which was then ended after Hamas started firing rockets into Israel again.
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.
Slogans chanted by the protesters included “Stop the war,” “Bring the soldiers back home” and “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies,” Channel 2 reported. […]
The demonstrations were cut short when Hamas unilaterally ended a humanitarian truce with Israel and resumed rocket-fire from Gaza.
Police had initially said they would not allow the rally scheduled for 8 p.m., as the mutually agreed 12-hour truce between Israel and Hamas was set to expire at the same time. Police said a large-scale gathering of thousands of people as Tel Aviv remained under rocket threat would not be permitted.
However, when Israel agreed to extend the truce until midnight, police allowed the rally to go forward, but Hamas resumed rocket attacks after 8 p.m., claiming it had never agreed to the 4-hour extension. The protest and the right-wing counter-demonstration were then dispersed.
A pro-Palestinian rally held by Israelis just defies all known bounds of stupidity. What will it take for these people to get it through their thick skulls? These are terrorists who want to kill all Jews, wipe Israel off the map, and no amount of peace protests is ever going to change that. What do these liberal idiots propose Israel do? Just let themselves be annihilated? Sorry, but no.
