I am organising a counter-protest in support of Israel, to coincide with the anti-Israel protest in Auckland, New Zealand this Saturday.

The aim of the protest will be to make the following points:

  • Israel is fighting a legitimate, moral war of self-defense.
  • Hezbollah is an anti-semitic terrorist organisation.
  • Hezbollah, having started a war of aggression, is morally culpable for the civilian deaths on both sides - not Israel.
  • Lebanon is in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1559 that requires them to disarm Hezbollah.
  • If you are interested in participating, please email me at, or send me SOLO mail.

Bravo, Dunc!

Duncan's fellow-counter-protester, Tim Wikiriwhi, has posted this on NZ's libertyloop:

"Duncan and I had a very interesting counter protest Downtown Auckland. Lots of police and cameras. A lot of people 'didn't appreciate' our signs. This was a 'We hate Israel and America' march...Lebanon is just the latest excuse! These were commies....Anti-capitalists insighting anti western hatred. 'Down with Israel' We got interviewed. and made a 1/2 second on channel 3 6.30 news… not our interview but us standing and talking while the mob chanted and marched …near the end of the clip...don't blink! We may be on again on the late tv3 news.... don't blink. We got both congratulated and castigated! We had pictures of mutilated babies put in our face. We stood our ground and said those babies were killed because Hezbollah hide behind them when they fire their rockets. It was good to get out of there after a brave protest that bummed them out! We didn't let their intimidation stop us from speaking our mind! Duncan has a few photos and I hope will give his own account on the loop He was giving the opposition a hard time with his well studied facts and figures which I was glad someone took the trouble of correlating! Good onya Duncan. Cheers, Tim."

Well, good onya both!

Bloody good on ya Duncan (&

Bloody good on ya Duncan (& Tim), it sounds like you put in a good show for Israel's right to defend itself and showed that NZ does have some people with the correct moral compass. Hopefully those you spoke to and any media watchers are positively influenced. Sorry I missed it - Lol, I had my party dress on and was all ready to go. Shalom!

Amen. (In light of my comments on another thread, I'm sure this won't be misunderstood.)

NO Cease-fire Until Hezbollah Is Obliterated
August 4, 2006

Irvine, CA--Echoing numerous world leaders, Pope Benedict has called for an immediate cease-fire in the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, asking both to “immediately put down their arms.”

"But that’s the last thing Israel should do," said Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.
"Israel must continue its war in Lebanon until it obliterates Hezbollah’s presence there. And the leaders of every civilized country should be urging Israel to do just that.

"Israel is Western civilization’s frontline in the war against Islamic totalitarianism, a religious ideology that seeks to subjugate the whole world to Islam.

"It is in the self-interest of every free or semi-free country in the world that Israel defeat Hezbollah, an Islamic terror group sponsored by the Islamic republic of Iran.

"The Islamic totalitarians will not be defeated until we in the West support Israel and gain the courage and the moral certitude to fight them without restraint."

Denis Thatcher, Margaret's husband, use to call it the "Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation". With reference to news and current affairs at least, he had it about right!

I wish you the best on Saturday. If I was in NZ, I'd join you. I'm currently in Holland - haven't witnessed any protests, but there's plenty of hand-wringing, head shaking, finger-wagging, and much talk of appeasement.

Yes, Tim

Monitoring email complaints is part of the BBC culture. They compile stats that get fed into the system. Someone told me that they affect producers' and editors' performance ratings. Mind you, it could be disinformation.

"If you don't like the bias, complain by email!"

Do you think this actually has any effect? If I thought it did then I would because their bias on this war has been shocking. Worse than I thought they could go.

Biased BBC

The BBC's bias is legendary. Anyone considered to be right of centre suffers from its institutional leftism, Eurofanaticism and political correctness. The exception is the World Service which is run by the Foreign Office rather than BBC.

If you don't like the bias, complain by email!

Then there was the BBC clip showing this Danish or Dutch (I think) UN guy walking thru Beirut and mumbling something about Israel breaking international law. The hand-wringing reporter eagerly thrusts the microphone in his face and blurts "so it's a war crime then!"  to which the UN guy backs away from actually saying so.

I watch the BBC for the scope of it's coverage but it is hardly objective

Good on you Duncan!

Not sure I care for the UN though!

The stupid left-wing BBC has been mostly anti-Israel and pro-Arab in it's coverage of the conflict.

The other day though, a BBC morning news-reader conducted a live interview with a member of the Lebanese Government and asked him something like, "Have you been contact with Hezbollah in order to negotiate terms?"

The Lebanese minister shot back, "What are you talking about, we see them all the time, they are elected members of our Government."

The other thing the Lebanese minister said during the interview was that Hezbollah wouldn't stop bombing Israel (even if Israel stopped) until Israel met a list of demands - that basically required that Israel give more land and prisoners to the terrorists.

Suddenly the news reader looked lost for words, fumbled around a bit and then quickly cut off the interview.

The aim should not be another UN resolution or cease-fire with peace keepers as Blair wants, but a campaign to disarm or kill the militant terrorists. Hezbollah and the Lebanese have bought that necessity upon themselves, but I am sure when they have been weakened they will merely use any UN peace deal to their advantage!
