3. Dr's Report:Protesters Brains "Disproportionate"
Scott ,   Let it all out   (08.05.06)
Yes, science has stepped in to provide a valid reason as to why so many numbskulls line themselves up with murdering terrorists. THERE IS NO CURE EXCEPT ISLAM!
4. Israel is with out a doubt the safest country in the world!

Leon ,   Grand Rapids U S A   (08.05.06)
So what's new ???? This is Europe.
6. at least 50 thousands march
Agop ,   Yerevan   (08.05.06)
Yedioth's website dont have to put the number of participants at lowest level. At least 50 thousand marched against the Israeli war crimes in London. Police put number at 20 thousand while rally holders put number of participants at 100 thousand.
7. Protesters need to know and read this!
Scott   (08.05.06)
Found these great quotes that perfectly illustrate the the mindset of the Islamic monster wanting to rule our lives. Here's what former Hezbollah leader Hassan Massawi said about Israel and negotiations: "We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you." On October 22, 2002, Hezbollah's present leader Hassan Nasrallah, said: "If they (the Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." Now, with attitudes like this AND recent actions to match - TALKING IS FUTILE. Sorry Lebanon it's - SMASH THEM before they SMASH YOU.
8. The people of the world are united against
Ellen Prescott ,   Southsea, Hampshire   (08.05.06)
the Israeli demolition of Lebanon, a moderate Arab democracy.
9. well intentioned but ill informed or incapable of logic !?
michael ,   tel aviv & london   (08.05.06)
stop the war now and have something much worse in either a few months or a few years. Interesting that Blair is one of the few MPs in Europe that 'gets it' and is castigated for telling the truth and taking action. Angela Merkel has also understood. France and Spain probably understand but are terrified and Belgium and Holland are probably lost causes. the people at the rally seem to have already forgotten a 'peaceful' Muslim rally that occurred a few months ago.
10. pathetic numbers
BS meter ,   Canada   (08.05.06)
These are small numbers. 7000 people in a city the size of London, 700 in Amsterdam. Piffling. These are basically the StopWar Coalition and a handful of their totalitarian bedmates who had nothing better to do on a Saturday afternoon.

Nice fake pictures. It's funny how every single sign was written with the same thick black marker in the same handwriting. Get a life.
16. To All the Missguided Protestors
Shaka   (08.05.06)
We the Jewish people will not simply allow ourselves to be killed. We will not die quietly. We will fight for our lives and existence. Those who seek our destruction and those missguided protestors that are blinded by ignorance F--K You! Am Israel Chai!
17. Not sure if this is accurate
Helen ,   Chicago   (08.05.06)
I am not sure about tthe accuracy of this story. It mentions a protest that took place in Chicago on Saturday but I am in Chicago, it is Saturday morning, there is no news of a protest that is taking place today or that happened yesterday. What is the source on this?
18. Agop #6 -- do you...
BS meter ,   Canada   (08.05.06)
...get al-Manar out there in eastern Armenia? Here's how big the march is: it's not even on the breaking news page for Google-news's UK site. Go have a search for it. By the way, how'd your people wind up in Yerevan? Oh, I forgot: it was a peaceful spread of that loving religion of Islam. You won the Armenians' hearts and minds.

Past experience prove Islamists lie about the number of civilians wounded and killed. Less Israelis get killed than Lebanese because Israel do not use Israeli civilians as human shields and protect Israelis by placing them in bomb shelters - one third of Israelis are currently living in bomb shelters. Israel warned Qana residents repeatedly by pamphlets and radio to leave the area - 150 rockets were launched from Qana - these rockets killed 18 Israelis and wounded hundreds. Hamas and Hizbullah fight the proxy war against Israel for Syria and Iran. United with Lebanon whose Prime Minister Siniora on July 30, 2006, publicly thanked terrorist Hizbullah for its sacrifices in the war against Israel. YNETNEWS (07.30.06) Lebanese PM thanks Hizbullah for 'sacrifices',7340,L-3283763,00.html Iran's proxy, Hizbullah, ruthlessly uses Lebanese civilians as human shields to protect rocket launching teams - setting up rockets and other weapons in basements of apartment blocks, schools and mosques. Iran's proxy, Hizbullah despicably shoots from inside mosques, hospitals and schools in south Lebanon. Images show Iran's proxy, Hizbullah using high-density residential areas to launch rockets:,,19955774-5007220,00.html Global jihadists - Iran's proxy, Hizbullah's evil goal is the murder of every Jew. On October 22, 2002, Nasrallah told Lebanon's Daily Star: "If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." The purpose of the PLO as enshrined in its charter is the destruction of Israel. PLO terrorists were wickedly implanted into Israel through Oslo peace accords. The Hamas Charter states: "Israel, by virtue of its being Jewish and of having a Jewish population, defies Islam and the Muslims... Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it..." Murderous Iran states repeatedly they intend to wipe Israel off the map - Iran is dangerously close in achieving nuclear capability to execute their genocidal goal. Hamas and Hizbullah proxies fight Iran's war against Israel and all humanity - a global jihad with its ultimate goal the entire world subjugated under Islamic rulers - Israel's fight for freedom and human rights is a fight for freedom and human rights for all nations.
21. #9.Thanks Michael very true

22. Time to Smarten Up
Ryan ,   Calgary, Canada   (08.05.06)
It's unbelievable the amount of naive, misinformed, uncapable to come up with there own thought, unless bbc or cnn tells them, just plain old dumbass people on this planet, hopefully a huge war will eliminate most of these, the strong and smart will survive. Canadians and Israelis. And I can't even vouch for all Canadians, only the true ones. July 7th wasn't that long ago, they must easily forget over there. Europe is overridden with poor immigration laws and political correctness, they sacrifice there values, forget what there country was founded on, in the name of political correctness. Islam is spreading, like a cancer, but it won't win. Islam is a religion of lies, contradictions, and the elimination of anything that might expose the truth. I feel sorry for this world. The americans are to capitalistic, more worried about making money, and doing business, then doing right. It is obvious that Isreal is Gods country, they are the only ones that stand up to evil, biased media, and just say f*ck it, we know we are doing right. I have a lot of respect for there people. Everyone else is just playing politics, trying to please immigrants for votes, cause they are easily manipulated, or too worried about doing business to see the trouble that is spreading. Too many people have lost there way, they are too believing in some clown priest, or imam. People need to find God before they are left behind. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled is making people believe he didn't exist. It seems that every 1000-1500 years, people lose faith, and become unbelieving. It happened to Moses, after Abraham, it happened to Jesus, it's happening now. People need to start praying, and asking for forgiveness, and contrary to popular belief, a priest at confession does not have the authority to forgive sin, only God has that power. Satan hides in the vatican, and uses Islam as a fighting force. Jews and good hearted true christians will prevail but this is a battle that is propertionally uncomparable to any before.
23. #6, fake figures
Danny   (08.05.06)
Actually the police put it at 7,000 to 15,000. SHAC has a long, long history of inflating its figures - guess it comes from people who failed their GCSE Maths. I would trust their figures any more than I trust the Lebanese ones...
24. @ # 9 thx for the Hoax

it is so stupid & naiv at the same time from you to put this link with FAKE fotos ,,)))LOL
25. London March
Olwenn ,   London, UK   (08.05.06)
There were far more than 7,000 thousands people of all creed and origins marching through London this afternoon, including jews (but no sign of rain yet here). You should also know that some orthodox jews from Stamford Hill where I live came on stage to register their protest at israeli military action, and although they did not speak as it is sabbat, they got some of the biggest cheers. This was neither a muslim march nor an antisemitic one. Londoners are proud to live in a multicultural city where there already are 1000's of mosques alongside churches, synagogues and temples and I have seen more hatred on those pages today than I heard in Central london this afternoon.

In the world war fought for Islamic subjugation of all nations, Islamists know when they attack Israel, the U.S. will pressure tiny Israel to give Jewish land to terrorists. THERE IS NO WAR ON TERROR! The U.S. is repeating their pattern of exerting relentless pressure on Israel to give away Jewish land vital to Israel's defense to Israel's implacable enemies. The U.S. EU UN Russia Road Map goal of a global Islamic terror state on Jewish land is an indefensible 6-10 miles wide Israel enabling a second Holocaust of Jews. Jerusalem Post ยป Israel Jul. 26, 2006 Exclusive: US calls for Mount Dov talks By HERB KEINON The US is "counseling" Israel to negotiate a possible withdrawal from the Mount Dov (Shaba Farms) area with Lebanon as part of a long-term arrangement for Lebanon, The Jerusalem Post has learned. This issue was one of the focuses of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's talks in Jerusalem Tuesday with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert... For the Lebanese, a victory could be an Israeli withdrawal from Mount Dov, and a massive international aid package... The area is a 100 square mile parcel of land located at the foot of Mount Hermon where the Syrian, Lebanese and Israeli borders meet. Israel took control of the area after the Six Day War in 1967, and since then has built up a number of military outposts on the strategic hills.

So thousands are demonstrating in London and other places insupport of the Hezzi Iranian sponsored warmongering ! Why is this news ? Who, in his / her right mind would not have expected the foolish and the dammned not to show up for their few minutes of shame. These people, as sincere as they think that they are, have a very long track record of coming down on the wrong side of history and are not at all ashamed of it. It is a philosophy of failure that is only applicable to fasle bebeficiaries of the democratic rights that they currently enjoy. Mind you, that these rights have been created with the blood sweat and tears of people who did not bow to terrorism is completely loss on them. I am willing to bet that non of them would choose to live in a state of hte type envisoned by Iran and the Hezzi savages as opposed to one like Isreal. These people are always in a tantrum. This is their only contribution to the societies inwhich they find themselves They are not known for their ideas and innovation in science and technology. I challenge anyone to produce any evidence to show even one large scale technological innovation produced by this kind of crowd, since 1989. Contrast this with ther performance if the west, in Information technology, low umemployment, adequate housing, etc.
29. Stupid Liberals are so misguided.

BS meter ,   Canada   (08.05.06)
Tell us something, Olwenn: did any of these peaceloving folk say they hoped for peace for Israelis, too? Let me tell you what happened in a pro-Hezbollah (cuz that's what these are) rally in MOntreal. As one reporter wrote: "whena small group of young Lebanese showed up with a sign that read 'Peace for Lebanon and Israel,' they were shouted at and shoved around and driven off. Their sign was torn up." And let me tell you something else about your rainbow gathering over there in the UK: in a recent poll, the UK was the country in European where the Muslims thought WORST of the non-Muslims, and the non-Muslims thought BEST of the Muslims. I don't know how you think you are advancing peace marching in support of people whose expressed aim is to annihilate a country. That's your idea of peace? You're pathetic.
