hezbollah's ally cupe
I went to counter protest the supporters of jihad and the jihadi flotilla, today in front of the Israeli Consulate in Toronto today. I met my friends Kathy, Arnie and Lumpy Grumpy Frumpy. There were perhaps 500 bad guys and about 100 good guys. We chanted Long Live Israel, while they chanted free Gaza and pro hamas slogans. The protest was somewhat smaller than I expected. It was all very peaceful. I think the prolonged counter attack by out blogs and our friends has reveal the true nature of the jihad flotilla. Indeed they say it themselves. It was not an aid flotilla, but a jihad flotilla. The aid is refused.
I don’t suppose the world needs to remember Rwanda to note how sluggish in the face of imminent horror the United Nations is and can be. If that is not a sufficient cue, we could bring in other examples of areas of great threat or immiseration or both: Darfur, Tibet, Chechnya, North Korea, Zimbabwe, the Congo or Iran. On these the UN has the patience of a stone but only some of its energy.
But torpid as is its nature, and comatose as are its eternal deliberations, on one subject, and toward one state, the United Nations acquires a strange and uniquely transformative power. Bring Israel under its gaze and the diplomatic sloths at UN headquarters morph into the swiftest of gazelles. From lotus-eaters to adrenalin junkies in the twinkling of an eye. Quite amazing, really.
