At this present time people are dying in war in Dafur. Far more then died in Lebanon and depending on what estimate you use equal or greater then in Iraq. But do you hear as much about it in the media. Do we see protestors marching to demand that the Irish government do something to stop the slaughter in Dafur? Do we see people demanding that Irelands stops sending weapons to Sudan.? Of course not because there is simply nothing in it for people to be against that war. How can you call Blacks, Neo-cons or imperialists or Zionists. It is simply not fun is it.
In the recent conflict in Lebanon about 1000 people died. In Dafur it is estimated that 400,000 people have died. Lets look at those figures again. Dafur 400,000. Lebanon 1000. So for every person that died in Lebanon 400 died in Dafur. Now surely that means the Dafur should get 400 times the coverage, 400 times the protests, 400 times the number of vigils, 400 times the student societies. Where is the Dafur Solidarity campaign?
I have been wondering this for ages now and I think I have figured it out 1 Palestinian is not equal 400 Africans. 1 Palestinian shot by an Israeli is worth 400 Africans shot by Africans. It is good to be anti-Israel. You get use funky catch phrases like Zionists and get to go around with a sense a false sense of pomposity that you somehow are more righteous person then everyone else as you agree with George Galloway’s PR spin.
You get to read in the English Independent Professor Ted Honderich: ‘Palestinians have a moral right to terrorism’ and feel see I am taking the intelligent view. Never realising that if you think someone has the moral right to blow children up you give the parents of the children the right to fight back. As Golda Meir said to Saddat “We can forgive you for killing our sons. But we will never forgive you for making us kill yours”. But of course few see that argument. The right to defend ones self, the right to not recognise a political party whose constitution calls for your destruction, the right to search people at your own border crossing with the strongholds of that said party is not normal is it.
When Dr Zion Evnory, the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, came to talk in Galway he was interrupted by people shouting “Free Palestine”, and “Death to Israel” at the point when he mentioned Hezbollah firing missiles from Civilian areas . Here is what noted Zionist puppet Human rights Watch have said about that claim
“Hezbollah fighters have attempted to store weapons near civilian homes and have fired rockets from areas where civilians live”.
Whether you believe it justifies Israeli policy it certainly is not as crazy as to justify the call for the extermination of a country. Why listen to someone when you can be a robotic brain-dead follower spotting out sound bits of moronic hate speech. Why instead of listening to someone bring someone of the opposing view like lets say Ibrahim El Moussaoui head of political programming at Hezbollah’s television station Al Manar. And then pretend to speak in the language of democracy (From Galway Advertiser)
Niall Farrell of the GAAW said Mr El Moussaoui had been invited to speak to “give the people of Galway the opportunity to hear Hezbollah’s side of the story”.
People want to give the people of Galway Hezbollah’s side of the story but not Israelis. What is the betting that the people who shouted Death to Israel will be hanging on Mr Moussaoui every word in silent reverence?
In this world shout out Death to Palestine you are quiet rightly named a racist shout out Death to Israel you’re called a liberal. Go fig.
