Demands By Left to Honor Conventions??
17 Jul 2006
Double standars are the norm.
Hey, I heard a RUMOR, and I know IndyMedia is a place to check (or invalidate) rumors, so...

... any truth to the rumor that leftists are going to stage marches in the coming week to demand that Hezbollah:

- Treat the Israeli soldiers they ambushed and captured according to the Geneva Conventions?

- Provide them with new bibles, yamulkahs, and religious counsel?

- Provide them with kosher meals?

- Provide them with medical & dental care?

- Provide them with attorneys?

I hope it's true, because after the conniptions the leftists threw over the treatment of detainees at Camp Gitmo, I thought they would certainly want to make sure that the Israelis are treated with accomodations similar to what the USA is providing its Islamic "guests."

Please advise if there is any truth to this rumor, okay?

I'd really like to join that march.

Maybe I can bring a few signs that show Hezbollah fighters as being responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Lebanese, because they are too cowardly to fight the Israelis, military-to-military, instead of hiding behind women's skirts and firing their rockets and assault rifles from apartment balconies?
