Misguided Loyalties?

People in New Delhi are out protesting against Israel’s attacks on Palestine. Initially I thought it was just an anti war protest. However on viewing the pictures, I see they are just protesting the attacks on Hamas. What about the attacks by Hamas? Don’t those need to be protested against? And if you have such an anti-war spirit in you, what about protesting against Pakistan for the terrorism in India? The country whose capital city you live in. For that matter, what about doing something so that the Mumbai attacks are not forgotten. Or is fighting for ones own country not in vogue anymore? We are ready to embrace the problems of other people; what about resolving our own first?

hmm u are right, many people are more bothered with the middle east crisis, tamils are more interested in whats happening in Sri Lanka, and all the while foreigners are butchering innocent Indians in their backyard!

Sad really..

@666: Make you throw your hands up in frustration dont they? Where is all this 'resolute demand for action' when it comes to the Indian people? CPI-M is more worried about Palestine. And again they ignore the fact that Hamas has not stopped the rocket attacks. It is people like these that we vote into power decade after decade. talk about not learning anything from our mistakes.

dude ...... its fashionable to do all those things u know ..... start a morcha .... start a NGO ....it might get you some obscure UN humanitarian award ...or u can write a book deriding India ...that will surely get you a Booker. The B'bay issue is still kept alive as the Govt. is showing some spunk for a change. The glitterati have definitely moved on to more serious issues like who is breaking up with whom in bollywood and which Khan is the best of all.

@ nom de plume: What I dont get is why is it only anti-India rhetoric that seems to be appreciated, be it for a Booker or even news coverage.
On a side note, you should start writing again dude.

People cry out ...Israel should have responded proportionally for the attack by hammas...

I mean what the fuck...what has proportionality gotta do with this...

You want Israel to count the number of rockets shoved into them by hammas and then then throw them back at gaza....???
