"Middle path" seekers lusting for peace and sober moderacy

The Daily Mail reports on a rally attended by 8000 people. The BBC doesn’t, even though they’ve been more than willing to report on “protests” of 60 people when it fits the producers’ smashingly narrow world view, but not when “the ___ street” displays its’ sincere bloodlust.

He said: "The greatest act of martyrdom is standing up for what is true and just. Martyrs are those who stand up and stand up in defiance of George Bush and Tony Blair. You stand up to them and you say desist. Stop this injustice. Stop this oppression."
Dr Tamimi claimed the war on terrorism was a war on Islam. "We are Muslims in Europe, not European Muslims," he added.
So this member of the peace-camp’s mashed potato circuit thinks terror is comparing – nay committing – Islam and terror to be one in the same. How very brave of him to speak so definitively for others. He’s also avering fairly firmly that no Muslim can be a European as well. Non-citizens can still be deported, can they not?
"Being fair and just means finding the middle path. The middle path is not rubbing shoulders with Tony Blair and George Bush."
The crowd erupted with cheering and applause when he said that Israel had been defeated by Hezbollah.
Two small points. Israel is still there, and the cutesy-poo “middle path” he seeks collides somewhat with his splodey-dope call to arms – those suicide murders vulgarly reinterpreted to be called “martyrdom”.

The fuse is lit!
