The Doctor: You know what really gets me about you Oswin? The soufflés. Where do you get milk? The soufflés. Seriously, is nobody else wondering about that?
Rory Williams: No frankly no! Twice.

Two days ago a story was reported at Breitbart of a pro-Hamas rally
Today, a hard left-wing pro-Hamas rally took place in Tel Aviv.
That came to an ironic end:
The rally apparently broke up shortly thereafter, thanks to rocket sirens warning of incoming ordinance … from Hamas-controlled Gaza.
Yes they had to run away from the rockets they were cheering, Ha Ha Ha, delicious irony we get a chuckle but this story illustrates a point far more important than a bunch of delusional leftists supporting homicidal barbarians who not only want to kill them but while they are in the process of doing so. A point that our friends on the left either can’t or don’t grasp or wish to ignore.
To understand this point you must go back to the “Crazy Uncle” Theory that I’ve mentioned before:
It’s not so odd that 1% of any population might be off its rocker, the problem is in a country of 300,000,000 that is 3 million people. Even if 1/10 of one percent is crackers that’s 300,000 people.
Ok so if Israel’s population is 7.7 Million than finding 77,000 1% who support Hamas shouldn’t be all that hard no big deal right?.
Until you consider the other side of the coin where are the pro-Israel protests?
Where is the single sign on a TV screen, where is that one Israeli flag not used for burning? Where are the counter cultural Arabs or that one crazy uncle in the mix in their population?
Consider the numbers: Jordan (6.1 mil), Egypt (Population 82.5 mil) and the West Bank Palestinian territories. (4.0 mil of which 1.6 million are in Gaza) that makes 92.6 million people. If you take 1/10 of 1% of that number you have 92,600 people.
That doesn’t even count anyone from places non-contiguous with Israel like Libya (6.4 mil), Saudi Arabia (28 mil) , or Iraq (32.9 Mil), Yemen (24 mil), Oman (2.8 mil), UAE (7.8 mil), Qatar (1.8 mil) Bahrain (1.3 mil) that’s another 105 million people a potential addition of 105,000 folks to our potential crazy uncle total bringing it to 197,600.
Nor do we consider Lebanon’s 4.2 million people because they are worried about what is happening in Syria whose 20.8 million people are fighting a government that kills more innocent Arabs every single day on purpose than Israel has killed accidentally in Gaza since the start of this operation.
Not a person in front of a camera, a man behind a microphone nor a fellow in front of a single web cam saying even something like:
“If you want to kill Jews, fine but don’t do it from populated areas where innocents can get killed.”
There is not a peep out of a population of 222.6 million of a opinion, even one as vulgar as the one I just typed suggesting firing rockets at Israel is a bad thing. Not one crazy uncle in a population 2/3’s the size of the US who dares express to the world that opinion from any of those lands.
Does that not strike our friends on the left as strange? More interestingly, why does this question not even occur to our friends on the left?
I submit and suggest that they don’t dare ask that question aloud or even to themselves, because the answer that is staring them in the face leads them somewhere that shatters their entire worldview.
That unasked question speaks volumes about the left and the Arabs.
