Where are the marches against the Islamic State? 29.8.2014 Washington Post
This summer, many Muslims marched in the streets of London, Paris and other cities to condemn the deaths of Gazans at the hands of Israel . Of course it makes sense to protest the bombing of schools and residential buildings. I marched in the streets against Israel’s invasion of Lebanon when I was a student, and I marched against the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. But, inexplicably, there have been no similarly large-scale demonstrations against the Islamic State for its horrific acts against Christians, Yazidis and even its fellow Muslims in Iraq and Syria. And there certainly haven’t been any marches protesting the beheading of innocents . It’s not hard to organize a march. So where are the ...

Israeli leaders are rarely popular once the fighting ends. Binyamin Netanyahu is no exception | Anshel Pfeffer 28.8.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The aftermath of a conflict often cuts the careers of prime ministers short. In Netanyahus case, though, there is no alternative At the height of Israels first Lebanon war in 1982, Amiram Nir , the Israeli officer and journalist who went on to serve as the prime ministers counter-terrorism adviser and later died in a mysterious plane crash, coined the phrase: Quiet, were shooting. Nearly all of Israels normally feisty and irreverent media observe this rule at times of war or during a major military operation. While soldiers are falling on the battlefield, criticism of the government is largely muted. Public opinion likewise falls in line and the prime minister and other civilian and military leaders receive levels of approval in the polls they could only dream of during peacetime. It all ends come the ceasefire or when an operation gets bogged down into a lengthy war of attrition. Israelis have extremely high expectations, bordering on the unrealistic, from their army and intelligence services and for ...
