LOS ANGELES, March 30, 2013 — Maybe it was the Christian spirit of Good Friday, but Palestinians made their most positive contribution to humankind in the entire history of their existence. For once, they stayed in their homes and left the rest of society alone.
A planned anti-Jewish protest in Los Angeles fell flat when nobody showed up. It’s a sad day in Palestinian culture when hatred of Jews takes a back seat to sleeping in on a paid American holiday.
The protest was scheduled for March 29 at 3:00pm PST at the Israeli Consulate. The issue would be Palestinian “right of return” to Israel. For those unfamiliar with the Palestinian movement, they are demanding their own separate independent state of Palestine while also demanding to have four million refugees who are not really refugees move to Israel.
Why would they want their own state yet return to Israel? The answer is to flood Israel with so many non-Jews that Israel would effectively be destroyed. This has always been the “peaceful” purpose of the Palestinian movement.
Yet once again, the Palestinians flunked logistics. Choosing one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar to launch a protest is not a shrewd public relations move. Neither is protesting against Jews on a Friday afternoon, long after they have left work to celebrate their Sabbath. Apparently, even Palestinians find that screaming “Jihad,” “Infidel” and “Donkey Zionist Aggressor” at empty buildings makes them seem less like culture warriors and more like homeless people arguing with inanimate objects.
Around twenty to thirty police officers were deployed at the expense of Los Angeles taxpayers. After less than an hour, many of them were allowed to leave. No media (other than myself) bothered to cover the event, depriving Palestinians the right to sob in front of the cameras. Even the anti-Israel, pro-terrorist excuse-making Los Angeles Times skipped this one.
Plus, it is difficult to scream about oppression in the middle of the nicest part of Los Angeles, the Westside. Even the potential Palestinian protesters must have picked up on the irony of arguing oppression while chatting on expensive cellphones in their comfortable Southern California neighborhoods.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that a protest was supposed to take place. One officer suggested that maybe the protesters were caught in traffic. Yet due to the Good Friday holiday, traffic was much lighter than usual for a Friday.
Palestinian protests only seem to do well when they are counter-protesting a pro-Israel rally. 10,000 Jews will show up, and then thirty Palestinians will shout for a few minutes, declare victory, and go home.
In Israel, the land was worthless until Jews developed the orange groves. Then Palestinians tried to latch on after the hard work had already been done. Apparently Palestinians need the Jews so badly that this dependence applies to successful protests as well.
In the real world, Palestinians are displaced Jordanians and Egyptians with a history dating back to 1948. Their existence as a “unique people” began about 3,000 years after the appearance of the ancient Israelites. Jews were living and working on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles before the world heard of Palestinians.
Despite supporting genocidal lunatics in Hamas, the Palestinians of Southern California were not even motivated enough to try and take over one corner of one block in the City of Angels.
In other words, the Palestinians in Los Angeles faced the ultimate indignity. Like fading Hollywood celebrities, they were non-controversial. They were prepared to hold a protest, and nobody cared.
True believers in a cause would show up anyway. The Palestinians stayed home.
For Jews celebrating the Sabbath and Christians celebrating Good Friday, this was the best gift to Western Civilization that lovers of freedom and sanity could have possibly asked for.
