A football game between French and Israeli teams was disrupted by pro-Palestinian activists, seemingly of Turkish descent.
To myself the situation concerning Israel and Palestine is a conundrum in which the dead civilians are a terrible and tragic horror, but I also
understand that no country should live under constant rocket fire.
I hope for a ceasefire immediately.
I have my bias, although I don't think my opinion or condemnation would stop a war, and I'd prefer not to support killing or intended killing either
However, is it fair for pro-Palestinian groups to respond with violence in other countries?
Do they think this will heighten support for Hamas and the Palestinains, or will it merely contribute to Islamophobia, especially as the non-Muslim
world is already shocked by the constant news of the Islamist behavior in Syria and Iraq?
The latest is the images of 8 men crucified by ISIS, apparently because they were Christian apostates from Islam who refused to recant.
Yeah, the West is always blamed for it all, and the Islamic religion never supposedly has anything to do with it, but the fact is that some Muslims
are openly choosing to support these ideologies, and nobody else can be blamed for their choices.
These protestors are wearing black tops that look very similar to Jihadist flags, and one wonders if they merely support peace in Palestine or
At least this was just a rumble, in which the "activists" also got a good smack or two.
I'm grateful for that, considering the terrifying alternatives.
Nevertheless, one wonders if majority opinions and sympathies in Europe and elsewhere would support such behavior.
