I know how shocking this will sound (/sarc) but it was Palistinians marching for Syria in Gaza and also at those pro-Syrian demonstrations in Lebanon last week. Yes yes, the very ones that got all that media coverage, while the real heros marching and risking their lives for democracy got gotz on the cable and network news. FOX should be ashamed. They have abandoned their role. I expect as much from the other LLL media but what could be more unfair and unbalanced?
Thousands of Palestinians Attend Pro-Syria Rally in Gaza - Ali Waked
Thousands of Palestinians attended a rally in support of Syria and Hizballah Friday in Gaza, organized by Islamic Jihad. (Yediot Ahronot-Ynet)
The rally was organized by the Islamic Jihad and followed Friday prayer sessions. Protestors expressed their support for Lebanon’s pro-Syrian regime and called on Damascus to stand up to international pressure.
The protestors also expressed their support for Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah and called on the group to continue fighting against Israel and resist calls to disarm.
The demonstrators said international pressures exerted on Syria and the Hizbullah are meant to serve Israel’s interests. [uh................what about the Lebanese people? argh, Atlas]Senior figures in the Islamic Jihad delivered speeches during the rally and also praised the Hizbullah and Syria.
