Bonus!

Despite the best efforts of macaroni-wielding Al-Qaeda agents, Israeli soldiers kicked terrorist arse on the high seas, and are continuing to kick terrorist arse in Qalandiya, during the course of a protest against the previous arse-kicking. Armed only with guns, tanks, and several hundred nuclear weapons, Israeli soldiers were forced to shoot 21-year-old Emily Henochowicz in the head, reportedly while the knife-wielding, stick-carrying thug attempted to mob the Israeli soldiers peace activists.

Or maybe she was just a girl who liked to make pictures.

    roll up roll up. come down to burke st mall and tell the world of your ignorance of history. let those people in government know just how angry you are at your old school. damn it, if they did their job you might have some sort of clue and not be resigned to a life of vocal self-flagellation. but don’t just yell out. the best way to say, ‘please help me, i need perspective’ is by bringing a big banner. then your voice won’t be lost in the crowd and your fellow clowns will feel more secure in the knowledge there’s someone more boorish than themselves.

    Comrade sydney was a blast of a protest. almost 2000 must have showed up.

    Embrace for saturday’s protest, 12 noon.

    I was fucking angry how the media used the few right wing islamist faction in the protest in the media, and the lefties got nothing.

    Next protest, i advise all comrades to stick with the right wing religious morons, so that the media gets the left wing working class unity.

    oh sam, you’re a case in point. surely you realise that by protesting, you are actually supporting those ‘right wing religious morons’ in their attempt to undermine israel’s legitimacy. maybe if the palestinian arabs weren’t in such [a] mad rush to make way for the ‘conquering’ arab armies in ’48, they wouldn’t be in such a predicament. maybe if their arab brothers had displayed some neighborly good-will and showed some of the much vaunted arab hospitality to these displaced people, their hardships would have been much reduced. have a read on the history of the refugee camps, and how much effort was made to keep these people in a state of misery. sorry, no it wasn’t israel…or the u.s. it was their fellow muslims. why don’t you protest the fact that, with just a small fraction of the wealth in the arab world, the palestinians could have modern cities, advanced agricultural reform, universal education and health…the list goes on. here’s the sting, though, the jews would have given these for free, only asking for peace in return. too late now. “wars start when you will, but don’t end when you please” not sure who said it. apt though.
