Recently, I wrote about press accounts claiming that Israelis were becoming extremist–and it was feared that Ehud Olmert would be assassinated–all based on the “extremist” behavior of Israeli soccer fans booing when an announcer tried to memorialize the death of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.
As I wrote then, if booing is a sign of extremism, they need to check out a Bears-Packers game, filled with thousands of “extremists”. You can hardly blame a people constantly under attack for booing a man who entered into an agreement which set off more than a decade of fresh homicide bombings, home and land giveaways after forced evacuations, etc.
Apparently, not only were the boos reported by the Mainstream Press as “evidence” of extremism (and “evidence” of an assassination plot), but an Israeli court ruled that the booing fans’ team, Beitar, was required to play to an empty stadium for two games.
Now, though, that’s out the window. Carl in Jerusalem has been following the story from day one and has the latest details. Amazingly, the left-wing Israeli courts actually got it right this time. As I always say: Broken clock. Twice a day.
I can’t wait ’til they boo Olmert and the Annapolis BS. Given what is coming out of the “Peace” conference so far, I can already hear the booing.
Israel . . . the “Jewish” State where Jews’ civil rights are negated in favor of PC treatment for Muslims, left-wing politicians, and empty peace/suicide treaties.
If it can happen to them there, it can definitely happen to us here. And it already is.
