‘Peace’ Activists MIA on Syria

Syria-protests-007How come when Arabs kill Arabs there isn’t a stream of “human rights activists” running to protect them? The bleeding hearts who are so active in the Middle East are nowhere to be found. Where is the International Solidarity Movement (ISM)? Where are all the flotillas? Where are the Rachel Corries of the world? Tens of thousands are being slaughtered in Syria and yet there is nary a movement or martyr for peace to be heard.  The region is embroiled in civil war and there’s no scruffy, long-haired, unshaven liberals prancing through the streets and inciting people as they do in Israel. The simple question of “why not?” must be asked.

The constant double standard surrounding Israel is sickening.  All these brave souls — these young international people seeking “justice” — haven’t gone to Syria or Egypt because they know what fate likely awaits them. They will be killed. People like Rachel Corrie, who went to a conflict zone, worked to protect the terrorist organization Hamas, stepped in front of an armored Israeli bulldozer and was crushed to death.  My curiosity remains: Where are all the Rachel Corries today in the Middle East? Why aren’t they battling in the streets of Syria and Egypt?

I will tell you why – it’s because Israel is held to a higher standard and while that makes sense, it doesn’t make it fair.  Unlike anywhere else in the Middle East, in Israel, these foolish liberals come and throw rocks, literally and figuratively, and largely escape justice.  They come and make noise, wreak havoc and return to their pampered worlds – harming Israel along the way. While they unfairly label Israel with awful terms, in reality, you don’t see these people in Egypt or Syria today because they will be killed – quickly, away from cameras. And never heard from again – not like the democratic, lawful state of Israel where human rights are universally observed and applied, even for those who arrive with the sole purpose of demonizing the State.

Listen, Israel is far from perfect – but it’s a great country and is unequivocally a stabilizing force in a crisis-stricken, chaotic region. It’s a Western democracy surrounded by barbarians, yet, the double standard applied to Israel with regards to media coverage and public opinion is as long as it is rich. It is a double standard steeped in bias, misunderstanding, ignorance and hatred. These people harm Israel’s reputation via public relations campaigns immensely.

And yet, for those who will say I am wrong, they can very easily prove me wrong. If their motives are altruistic, as they would have everyone believe, I urge them to now – today – go en masse to Syria or Egypt and launch the same vitriol and take the same stand.  Indeed, in Syria and Egypt there are slaughterings taking place and real violations taking place against innocent people. Where are these longhaired bandana-wearing freaks?

Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the Zionist prophet, wrote, “Who were the first to teach us to always interfere in matters that are not ours, to judge people and nations, even though we were never chosen for the position of judge? The work of the publicist is a legacy from the Prophets of Israel…Our passion is to speak, to proclaim – ‘Shouting’ is what the same audience calls it, ‘we have no need for words, give us actions.’ One thing that audience forgets is that speech is also an action – Perhaps the most authentic of all actions. Cities have been destroyed, and more will fall, but what was shouted in the wilderness thousands of years ago is alive and still relevant. The world was created by the Word. The world will be mended by the Article.”

These lying liberals harm Israel immensely.  The good guys need to keep telling the real story. Israel remains the closest ally for America in the dangerous region called the Middle East. We should all pray, hope, and work towards helping the State of Israel in whatever ways we are able.  We owe it to ourselves, to Israel and to the truth.

    The ant-semitic “peace activists” are silent and absent in regards to Syria because they don’t get to slag off on Jews.
    That and the Arabs will shoot them on sight and dump them in an unmarked grave somewhere.

    Liberals love to harm Israel thats all it is.

    Thank you Mr. Torossian. You have stated what is on everyones’ minds.

    “The constant double standard surrounding Israel is sickening. All these brave souls — these young international people seeking “justice” — haven’t gone to Syria or Egypt because they know what fate likely awaits them. They will be killed”.

    Damn right! I cast my mind back ten years to just after Dubya bombed the crap out of Iraq and then invaded it. Here in Australia a member of the Greens party, you know (red), called Kerrie Nettle went to embark on a so-called ‘fact-finding mission’ of Iraq. I can still see that sanctimonious look on her face as she showed up at the airport with her backpack on, ready to go. But she never left the country. Funny about that.

    She might have been killed. What a shame.

    If she went, I would have shed no tears.

      I wonder if someone took her aside and gave her a few anecdotes about the fate of many an anti-West Western activist in any Moslem-dominated country…

      • ziggy zoggy

        Naw. She just couldn’t fit her backpack under a burka.

    Perhaps Obama, instead of bombing Syria, could offer a prayer at the National Cathedral to Saint “Pancake” requesting divine intervention. It is sure to be just as effective and a lot cheaper.

  • Well Done

    I despise the double standard because it excuses the wrong-headed thugs and chases after the decent folks, which is wrong, cowardly, and, in the end, only causes more trouble by encouraging the wrong-headed thugs.

  • jewdog

    Anti-Israelism would be far weaker if there weren’t so many pathetic Jewish collaborators. Out of a misplaced sense of moral perfectionism and shame at having to wield power in their own state, so many Jews have their minds back in the ghetto, when they should be standing tall as proud supporters of Israel.
    Freedom from slavery is a difficult process, not only to break the physical chains, but the psychological ones as well.

    martyr for peace
    GREAT term used here. I hope more liberal hypocrites become martyrs for peace.

  • garyfouse

    Very timely. Wait until the fall quarter begins in the University of California system and the anti-Israel demonstrations begin anew. The summer at UC Irvine has been quiet because the campus is practically deserted. The pro-palestinian students and professors will have to be quite inventive given what is going on in Syria and Egypt.

  • Walter Sieruk

    With this conflict in Syria both sides are bad. America needs to keep out out of the civil war in Syria. The United States had no rational interest for the sake of her national security in get involved in that war in that country.

  • kafir4life

    Code Pink would be involved, but they’re busy washing the presi-due from their Pelosi sized rubber vaginas.

  • ziggy zoggy

    MIA? Cindy Sheehan is too busy munching carpets to risk her worthless life, and Barack Osama the Democrat is President so all the usual suspects refuse to Jerk their knees against war. Besides, which side would they choose? They love jihadi totalitarians and secular totalitarians both. Their tiny brains are melting down like those androids on Star Trek who couldn’t handle contradictions.
