Dhimmitude in the holy month, as protests mount against the visit of a legitimate representative of a sovereign state. From Haaretz, with thanks to Twostellas:
CAPE TOWN – Hundreds of Muslims in South Africa marked the start of the holy month of Ramadan with marches Saturday to protest a visit next week by Israel’s Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
Olmert is expected in the country next week to discuss strengthening economic ties with South Africa.
“Suddenly economics is more important than human suffering,” said Mandla Sishi of the Palestinian Solidarity Group, which helped organize a demonstration in Cape Town, one of three major cities where rallies were staged.
“We call on our government to cease negotiations with Israel. Impose sanctions on Israel now,” Sishi told a crowd of about 500 people gathered outside the District Six mosque at the foot of Table Mountain.
But sanctions is not all they want:
Marchers waved placards reading, “Death to Israel,” “Sharon the butcher” and “Stop the holocaust in Palestine.”
“Death to Israel” and “Stop the holocaust in Palestine”? So some holocausts are better than others, eh?
