Hey, this is great! Riot action without the backlash of actually liking the people who get hurt!

Why not cover the anti-monarchy riots in Nepal or the people in the Philippines rioting against excessive taxes (aren't they all) instead of these assholes? I do like the pictures though.

I'm sorry I don't care who you are, it sucks getting beat by riot police. Many of the se people are fighting for their homes just like the Palestintians moreover they are pawns of political ideology, the insensitivity you show is disgusting and dehumanizing, no matter what political stripe you wear i think your sentiments are horrible.

Bombs and shields, The riots in Nepal are covered and updated on this blog, just scroll down.

Last reversal, I think that the comparison you make is wrongheaded. The settlers "homes" are the direct result of displacement and occupation of Palestinians. being occupied and opressed is not the same as doing the occupation and oppressing. I also don't see the settlers as mere "pawns" of ideology, they're active participants in the occupation of Palestine. Also, while I'll agree that it sucks to be beaten, that doesn't mean we have to sympathize with the fractures (no pun intended) in the Isreali occupation, in a Isreal vs. the settlers confrontation, there's no need for opponents of the occupation to take sides.

Whatever, tell that to the guy who got trampled by the horse. I can sympathize with the animal, but when it's being used as a thousand pound weapon against you do whatever is needed to defend yourself.

"The settlers "homes" are the direct result of displacement and occupation of Palestinians."

The same way that Hezbollah puts on protests 'against American imperialism' right?

Well, it's a bit different in that the US hasn't militarly occupied Lebanon since 1983. But yeah, it's essentially the same.

I'm saying we are all human and we need to think with compassion, it sucks that our lives have to come to blows. I've in the same situation and know what its like but i never forget my opponents have feelings, lives, family etc. I will never veiw my opponent unfavourably, we are all standing up for what we beleive and if you can't respect that, you aren't really revolutionary.

And always there is the incoming Anonymous poster with wisecracks like: "You are all wrong, i hold the über objective power vision of the world"
