The big banner reads “No Attack on Iran”, “Justice for Palestine and Somalia”, while the little signs call Bush the number one terrorist as well as a boycott on Jaffa oranges.
So this Finnish “peace group” deems US president, George W Bush as the main villain, not an Iran that seeks to build nuke bombs in order to destroy Israel. For the SRP, only Muslims have rights, not Jews. I will also have to conclude from the picture that:
- there was a small crowd, and that no else cares about their protests
- there were no men participating, or
- the women were segregated from the men (gender apartheid).
- the knowledge that Israel has a dynamic economy and that its oranges make up a minuscule percentage of its overall exports is completely lost on these nitwits.
But hey, let them focus on their (ages old) racist boycott, I still enjoy buying my Jaffa oranges at my local market, which is proof that these anti-Israel protesters are not the sharpest blades in the kitchen drawer. *L* KGS
Update: Why don’t these “peace protesters” march against the discrimination and murdering of gays in the Middle East? But wait, they would have to focus exclusively on Muslim states and the Palestinian Authority, not Israel. Besides, most of the protesters pictured in Helsinki would probably approve of the discrimination and murders of gays. *L* KGS
