The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Happy Israel-Hating Day... of RAGE!

We probably should've known that we could expect more anti-Israeli sentiment on Friday, and sure enough, here it is. See if you can notice the general thread that weaves its way through all of the captions listed here—highlighted in bold wherever it appears, in order to make it as obvious as humanly possible.

Very interesting—We've seen in the past how Iranian citizens "volunteer" as shahid to "liberate" Jerusalem from Israel.

Surprisingly enough, Gateway's found some photos of the same thing happening at today's festivities.

Come one, come all.


Notice all of the pro-Hezbullah paraphernalia carried by the crowd, and then ask yourself:—If it weren't for the financial and weaponry support of Iran, would Hezbullah even exist today?

An old friend makes an appearance—thus illustrating succinctly where the loyalties of these insanity-whipped crowds truly lie.

Yes, this is that oil-rich country that has absolutely nothing to do with either "Palestine" or Israel.

Always our allies, never our bridesmaids. And no, that's not intended to make any sense.

And this one is in the apparently soon-to-be-Muslim city of Geneva, Switzerland. Certainly Dar al-Islam stops somewhere before Switzerland, does it not?

Can you imagine a world in which Christians went to church on Sunday, spent their time drawing up ridiculous-looking anti-Muslim posters, and then proceeded to immediately march out of church to shout, rant, and burn stuff in a wild spree of rage?

Yeah, neither can I. But at least if it were to happen, we would recognise that the people marching and raving are being manipulated into doing so, would we not?

So why, then, is it so hard for us to get past the notion that these people's complaints are not genuine, but are rather the carefully-orchestrated message that they are told to say? That their "complaints" are nothing more than explosive press releases, sent out from the mullahs of Iran via the largely-sympathetic imams at these mosques?

Yet we don't get any of this type of depth from our "question-everything" media. They seem quite content to repeat this anti-Western propaganda without question—To our vaunted guards and cross-checkers of "information," this is apparently not relevant.

Personally, I would think it'd be important to know when a crowd is presenting an orchestrated message.

But hey, what good are "facts," anyway?

Great work here. Facts are lost on racists. Until the world purges itself of Jew hatred it will still teach it's children lies about the Jews killing Jesus rewriting history for those looking for a scape-goat. Those miserable ones will have their judegement day.

You people really are amazing. So the Jews didn't kill Jesus? Who killed him then? Oh yeah, it must have been Al Qaeda! And please keep talking about the poor Jews who are killed by terrors, after all Palestinians children being killed and run down by US tanks could not be compared to that. Poor Jews. My heart bleeds for you. How can you survive the racism of this world!!!!!!!!!!!!
#3 Sbmt2no1 12-Nov-2008
You people?????

Look MORON - Jesus was a JEW - he had more power than the romans wanted him to have so they killed him and scapegoated the Jews - learn history - and for Christ's sake get out of your mommy and daddy's basement, get a job, pay your taxes and stop saying 'you people' like you're not a racist that you ARE!!!
oh and FOAD.

I'm not sure how relevant this is, but it should be noted that "meem" hails from the peaceful and tolerant republic known as [i]Kuwait[/i].

I don't want to fight with you about who killed Jesus. For us Muslims Jesus wasn't even killed! But that is another matter. For your information I'm a woman. I have two beautiful children. When I think about those children who died on Qana (for you who don’t know it Qana is known internationally for two separate incidents in which the “Israeli Defense Forces” caused civilian deaths during military operations in Lebanon. The first incident killing 106 civilians and injuring around 116 others who had taken refuge in a UNIFIL compound to escape the fighting), I imagine my children in their places. I'm Lebanese, and let me tell you I don't hate Jews because of their religion. I simply hate them for what they have done to us. For occupying Philistine, for killing innocent people and having the audacity to say it was self-defense. My uncle was killed by Jews bomb. But believe me, even after all this I can't hate an Israeli child. I can't hate any child! But I am sure hate the pictures of Israeli children writing their greetings to Lebanese children on those rockets that were fired in 2006.
