Chicago anti-Israel protesters cheer Iran’s example of “democracy and justice”

Chicago anti-Israel protesters cheer Iran’s example of “democracy and justice”

A counter protest directed at a “Stand with Israel” rally held in downtown Chicago Tuesday chanted that Israel should “end the occupation now.”

The counter group on around 30, a coalition of pro-Palestinian forces along with Communist Party USA’s Andy Thayer and others, accused Israel of being the aggressor in the Gaza conflict.

Two men I interviewed at the rally, one holding a sign that read, “Israel murders children” and the other wearing a keffiyeh scarf, both discussed the role of Iran in the conflict.

According to the first, “in other countries like Iran, we see that they are accepting of the Jewish population in that country….I think that Iran is surrounded by 42 U.S. military bases and that it poses no threat or otherwise.” The second said,  “[Iran] is being attacked because it is on the side of democracy and justice”:

Today on FOX News, Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren commented that “Gaza is an Iranian outpost. We are fighting Iran in Gaza.”

Clearly Ambassador Oren is not the only one who sees the influence of Iran in Gaza.

Some pictures from the two rallies:

The nation of Israel is comprised of approx. 8,000 sq. miles, or about the size of New Jersey, by comparison.

That footprint is one-tenth of one percent of all the landmass in the Mid East, yet the world hates the Jews for ‘occupying’ this sliver on the coast at the supposed expense of the poor palestinians.

These keffiyeh wearing, anti-Israel brown shirts parrot the same ridiculous rote rhetoric that the ignorant OWS rabble spewed about corporations and banks: evil, oppressive, hostile, hateful, etc.

Yet the dirty lil secret about the palestinians is no Arab nation wants ’em, either. So they’re murderous proxy puppets for Iran’s war to wipe Israel off the map.

Something the U.N. is all too happy to accommodate.

Excuse me while I vomit on a keffiyeh.

Malignant ignorance. These people are this generations Nazi-sympathizers. And, sadly, they probably all have college degrees from American universities.

Will there be a musical?

This makes my blood boil. I happened to be watching live as Neda was murdered (along with many others) in the streets of Iran in 06/09, and Ahmadinnerjacket and Obama did nothing. Nothing. These protesters can EABOD.

Karl Marx didn’t call them his useful idiots for nothing..

This is the power of indoctrination, it turns normal people into ignorant moronic imbecilic useful idiots.

Ours is not to appease and capitulate to them, ours is only to defeat them. This is not an option, this is a must.

2 words describe these people: Useful Idiots. Vladimir Lenin would be proud.

How anyone can think that Israel is the Agressor here, with rockets raining down on their cities constantly, is insane.

It’s long past the point of who started the conflict. The point now, is who will finish it? The Palestinians certainly don’t want to stop fighting Israel, while Israel would be quite content to live in peace. That says pretty much who is the aggressor.

The Hairy protestor on the video was so, so stupid.

Offer them all a one way ticket to Iran and let them see firsthand how democracy and justice works there.

I have a neighbor who is pretty liberal except on a couple of issues. One is the way the Islamic world treats people, especially women. Her husband is a retired engineer who spent many years working overseas, including Islamic countries, and she always went with him. We’ve talked about how these idiots yelling about oppression need to see the real thing up close.

My valued friend from Iran, Kathy M., lives in Chicago and I hope has the opportunity to toss some spittle at these Imbeciles of the Left.
