Anti-Zionist Tactics: World Edition

In the recent New Delhi bombing thread, I saw a very interesting trend:

So that is five different anti-Israel posters speaking in five different posts. And in each one of them they try to speak for "the world," despite having no evidence that what they say is in any way true. Nor is this the first time that such a tactic has been used, it's practically a staple of anti-Zionist talking points to declare "all the world supports Palestine and wants Israel destroyed." Don't expect them to ever back up what they say though.

Now I know we often make fun of each other for being "propagandists" who just say what the download from Tel Aviv/Ramallah tell us, and that goes for both sides. I never really believed it. However, trends like this make me wonder...
