Well I have good news! This article is all about Iran... sorta
Finally, as with everything else Bibi does, the left find a reason to call for his resignation. And their latest, idiotic campaign, is well underway...
It's not that I like Bibi or have any intention of defending him, but it's quite obvious that no matter what Bibi does, the left want him out. Not because of anything Bibi does or doesn't do, but because the left simply want power.
The Israeli government's constant delays over an Iran strike has finally come back to bite them in the tuchis. The left have started a campaign against Israel taking out Iran's nukes. To be honest, I thought this was going to happen a lot sooner, but didn't say anything publicly for fear of giving some shmo the idea...
From Commentary magazine:
A peculiar phenomenon has been dominating Israeli social media. As tensions between Israel and Iran reach fever pitch, a young Israeli couple has launched a campaign showing pictures of couples kissing under the heading “Iran, we love you, we will never bomb your country.” Some Iranians have reciprocated with rosy memes of their own carrying a similar message to their Israeli courtiers.
Last Saturday, the campaign hit the streets of Tel Aviv. Hundreds waved banners and shouted into megaphones their disapproval of what they perceive to be Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s “needless” warmongering. Calls for Netanyahu’s resignation were heard over chants for “social justice instead of war.”
This isn't actually a very accurate picture. An eye-witness gave a somewhat different account and protesters called the IDF a 'terrorist army', and the mood was far more aggressive than this happy clappy campaign would have us believe (remind anyone of the Vietnam-era protests?)
The demonstrators’ claims aren’t likely to be taken seriously by Israeli decision makers who are focused more on intelligence evaluations of the Iranian challenge than social media.
Saturday’s demonstration is most remarkable for its curious intellectual undercurrent. The protesters seemed to have expressed a remarkable sense of inflated self-importance that stems from the fallacy that all of the Middle East’s problems are the result of the Israeli-Arab conflict.
Contrary to this myth, Israel doesn’t hold the key to regional stability and peace. The blind faith that a little less bellicosity from Israel will solve everything is based on a premise that treats Iranian domestic politics, American interests in Iraq, the destabilization of Syria, the rise of Sunni neo-Ottomanism on Iran’s western front, and Iran’s paranoia over its disgruntled non-Persian minorities as if they were problems that can all be resolved by a wave of the Jewish magic wand.
Beyond the pure naiveté of assuming that taking the military option off the table will somehow turn down the political temperature of an increasingly heated Middle East, the demonstration exposed beliefs underpinning much of the discourse on the Israeli Left: beliefs in Israel’s ability to control the trajectory of current affairs.
Such assumptions are not only factually unfounded, they are also downright dangerous to peace.

In light of the stupidity-stakes being raised to def-con 3 by the left in this latest campaign, some Israelis have fired back, coming up with their own posters for the campaign. In particular, the Israeli satire show 'Eretz Nehederet' (excellent country) featuring Iranian nuclear scientists!
Another good one...
And not to be outdone, I decided to make a few of my own... enjoy the lurrrve people!
