Anti-Israel activists are not always the brightest bunch, they once ran a campaign against Caterpillar because their bulldozers were used by the Isralei army to widen the border zones. Caterpillar wasn’t even selling to Israel (they were selling to the US army who then supplied them to Israel to modify for military use) but still the company was attacked.
Add this one to the pile of stupid anti Israel actions:
Some 500 anti-Israel protestors arrived at the Oakland, California port early Sunday morning, hoping to block an Israeli ship from unloading its cargo. However, the ship did not arrive, and the crowd prevented workers from unloading a Chinese ship instead.
The protestors say they were protesting the recent Israel-Turkey flotilla incident, though they displayed great ignorance about what actually happened; one of them even compared barely armed Israeli Defense Forces troops with Somali pirates.
“Free, free Palestine! Don’t cross the picket line!” the picketers shouted – and in fact, the longshoremen chose not to clash with them, for fear of “getting into fistfights,” a union leader said. No one was arrested.
The Israeli ship arrived only at 6 PM, more than 12 hours after the protestors, but by that time most of the latter had left.
But hey, as long as there was lots if yelling, it’s Job Done.
