This Is Encouraging..



Via LGF - Yahoo News
Around 10,000 Italians, most waving Israeli flags, demonstrated peacefully outside Iran's embassy in Rome to protest President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent call for Israel to be "wiped off the map"

According to Ynetnews

Approximately 15,000 people participated in the rally, which was accompanied with chants of "viva Israel! viva freedom!" the website of the Italian newspaper La Republica reported. The rally was concluded with the singing of the Israeli national anthem, "Hatikvah."

Protesters included right and left-wing politicians, local celebrities and Walter Veltroni, the mayor of Rome.

Whereas over in London thing's aren't looking so pretty - with these damn Al-Quds Anti-Israel marches - not being challenged by any sizeable group...

    things were so much easier when the iranians and iraqis were fighting each other.

    there must be a way to restore this natural balance.

    Nice show of solidarity there. But isnt it a bit hypocritacal to add "viva freedom!" to "viva Israel!"? You know, after stealing land and oppressing an entire nation.

    Yes, the Arab conquests, forcing conquered peoples to covert to Islam, live as dhimmis or die, were pretty grim.
