Not Being Run Over by Tanks

This picture is from an article by Kelly McParland in the National Post. The caption reads: "Thousands of protesters march in Israel. Notice how they're not being run over by tanks."

The caption was my favorite part of the article, but the rest is good too.

I’ve been scouring the web sites of fearless critics of Israel — attention-grabbing authors, union bosses, self-righteous leftwingers, NDP deputy leaders, flotilla supporters etc. — for signs they are putting their famed organizing abilities to work to focus international outrage on the Syrian regime via marches, protests, demonstrations etc. And praising Israel for its democratic response to a national crisis.

Can’t seem to find any. Odd. But I’ll keep looking.
Good luck with that.

  1. ...perhaps because everyone agrees that the Syrian regime is morally bankrupt, whereas a lot of Westerners support Israeli atrocities.

    I say this as someone who partially supports Israel (I think Arab countries have a heck of a lot to answer for, and bear a lot -- perhaps most -- responsibility for what is happening there). One can still be critical of someone one supports though.
