Haaretz:
quote:
Hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem threw stones and household objects including bottles, eggs, potatoes and onions at police officers Wednesday night to protest roadwork the Haredim say desecrates graves.

quote:
When the police tried to arrest a man suspected of setting fire to trash cans near a Satmar yeshiva nearby, hundreds of ultra-Orthodox rioters began to throw rocks, bricks, metal rods and benches at the officers, in efforts to free the suspect. Three more suspects were arrested during the incident

I don't know. I can see their point. I don't think I would like the idea of a road being built on a disputed ancient burial ground either.

Imagine what would be happen if Hizbolah did this in Beriut. Fuckin Sharon would bomb the place, and call it democracy.

Hey, for a change they're not throwing things at the fags. I see this as a bit of an improvement...

Rabid Zionism, zenophobia, bigotry and racism.

Fear of pre-Socratic Greek philosophers?
Fear of paradoxes that seem to make action impossible?

Then there's Claustrophobia.
He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good! Fear the Claus.

Don't you think that the five Gulf monarchies could also be considered theocracies? I relize that Isreali propigandists tend to portray the Arab word as a backward shit heap while portraying Isreal as a "light unto naitons", and completely ignore the fact that the settler movement(a collection of sadistic fundamentalist baffoons, hell bent on bringing about the end of the world) controls the IDF and large chunks of the Isreali government, but to say Isreal is the onlytheocratic state in the ME is really quite silly.

I'm being facetious. Yes they are. Most defintely. My post was a sarcasm within a sarcasm. I was making fun of the Israeli propoganda, claiming sole ownership of democracy and then changing it, by making theocracy.

Or, if you don't like that explanation, try: It was late. I was tired.

Well, isn't armagaddeon supposed to happen around those parts? Perhaps they're writing the next "Left Behind" series.
