So, anyways, there is a group of disgruntled Muslims marching around our statehouse simply to protest the actions that another country is committing against their people. Does that make any sense to you? I mean, why would Columbus, or Toledo, or Cinci, or even Akron (they have protested at all) have to do with Israel bombing the West Bank? Sure, it is all nice to have a obvious statement against something, but when we can not do anything, I see it as more of a waste of time. What can Columbus do to help the Palestinians out?
I mean, when was the last time that you saw people marching around our statehouse wanting the US to get involved in Darfur? Nope, they are all doing it online, where there is a larger impact, and where you can get more people. Marching in locations which have no say in the matter is useless. Go march in Washington (where the US does have some policy say on Israel). Or go march around the Israeli Embassy (where it will be heard). Go march somewhere where it actually matters, and where you are not wasting our state’s resources. Better yet, go march in Israel as a protest.
Actually, on a side note, don’t march in Israel; odds are that they will kill you and your family.
