  •  Why would Palestinians be angry at a person (0+ / 0-)

    who protects their oppressor in the U.N. and gives billion of dollars in military aid to bomb their people?  So weird.

    Swastikas were egregious and disgusting.  But don't act shocked and completely unsympathetic.

    •  Don't act shocked about ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... egregious and disgusting acts?  Remain sympathetic to people who use symbols of hatred?  Yeah, right.

      •  writing a swastika is not even half as bad as some (0+ / 0-)

        of the things Israel has done to their families and people.

        •  Actually, your comment is very interesting... (0+ / 0-)

          ... given your handle.  One would think that an "Obama Lover" would be deeply offended at the mere fact of anyone painting swastikas over the likeness of our President, and even more offended by the fact that the likeness was burnt in effigy.  I guess it's a conditional love, right?  It's OK for Palestinians to do it, but my guess is that you would freak out if ANYONE else did it.

          •  If our government is directly responsible (0+ / 0-)

            for their oppression I would have a bit more understanding despite whatever ignorant or hateful graffiti they may write.

            •  Obviously... (0+ / 0-)

              ... maybe a tag change is in order:  ConditionalObamaLover20122

              PS The US (President Obama) sends direct aid to the PA, hardly oppression.

              •  So you think the humanitarian aid we send to (0+ / 0-)

                The Palestinians makes up for what Israel is doing to their people?

                •  Didn't you say earlier that the US was ... (0+ / 0-)

                  ... directly responsible for their oppression?  Now you're changing the subject.  This diary is about Palestinians painting swastikas on a poster with the object of your affection's likeness.  Then that poster was driven over by a taxi and burnt.  But typically, you blame Israel (of course earlier you were blaming the US).  Always someone else's fault, never the Palestinians who actually performed the actions.
