I just wonder why this kind of protest can be seen only (very) far from the place of the issue!
I remember when I was living in Paris City all kind of protests too!...One day the workers, one day the bosses...one day the pro-Arafat, one day the anti-Arafat, one day the Jews, on day the anti-Jews...
I see it like a serie of very photogenic folkloric events far from the realities
I can't speak for Paris, but in the states the anti-war/pro-peace movement hold the United States government responsible for many of these issues... i believe it is ones responsibility to protest against their leadership if they are unhappy with the direction their government is taking, and even more so when their tax money is being used for these campaigns to fund war.
thank you so much for your interest in what i am doing
wonderful to see all the three faiths come together like this! and you never see this in the news! where is CNN, delivering the most important things/news to americans? this is quite major and i didn't see anything....i might've missed it but still! where is the media....they always are the fuel to something.
I've noticed most people here think it's a beautiful sign of inter-faith peace, but nothing could be further from the truth.
The Naturei Karta are a tiny religious faction that actively advocates the _destruction_ of the state of Israel, more or less since its inception. They are _not_ for any kind of compromise or a peaceful coexistance of Israel and Palestine. In fact, they consistently ally themselves with Palestinian hard-liners.
I'll note that because of that, they are considered to be traitors both by the secular and the non-Zionist Ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities.
I’m sorry if it is implied by the photo that the Naturei Karta were the only Jews I was referring to in my commentary. There were many Jews other then the Naturei Karta protesting at the White House that day. There were also many Christians, Muslims and non-believers alike calling for a solution to the bloodshed.
oh yes the picture is much bigger indeed... its a picture about 3000 years old... way before the US was even thought. The pciture is of religious nature, and to blame a country for the madness of religious fanaticicms is to say the least weird. But .. nevermind.. ppl will believe whatver they want
thats so cool.
thats the sort of thing we should really have, because it seems to me that racism is still everywhere.
but of course there are those kinds Christians pushing their religion, trying to make it a good reason to protest and such.
And protesting is a wonderful, peaceful way to get a point across. I certainly hope their efforts weren't in vain and the government reconizes our desire for peace.
If only this sort of humane brotherhood would spread to the rest of our Human race throughout the world – it would be glorious.
Let me not recount my share of disappointments on that point and just (if only for that moment admiring your photo) believe that peace is not a hallucinatory pipe-dream, but a reality already on its way to becoming worldwide-known.
A drink to an Earth united by Humanity and not divided by egotism!
