A Glimmer of Light in the Darkness

Now that it has been a few days since the bus bombing thread, I wanted to share something that I noticed. Although the usual anti-Israel crowd was out there being their usual hateful, assholic selves, I noticed that many normal users who we don't see on the thread were there willing to stand up for the victims of this terrorist attack. And in fact the top favorited comments on the thread were sympathetic to Israel and unsympathetic to the Palestinians. Check it out:

Maybe when the chips are really down, the Huffington Post crowd is not as anti-Israel as the haters want us all to think.

  1. This more or less confirms what I have always maintained. The majority of "progressives" are not anti-Israel and certainly not anti-Semitic. That is not the problem. The problem is that, wittingly or no, they provide venues, such as the HuffPost, for anti-Zionists and Israel Haters to spin their narrative of hatred toward the Jewish state.

  2. The extreme Left supports the Palestinians not because they care about Arab freedom or human rights but because they want to annihilate the Jews.

    They are truly evil scum.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
