And then I spotted these pictures of recent demonstrations in Judea and Samaria.
One of them (of Tara Todras-Whitehill/Associated Press) shows a "peace activist", you'll pardon my use of Orwellian lingo, on a background of burning tires during a protest Friday in Nabi Saleh
and here's another one:
This tire-burning happens maybe once a week and in multiple locations.
Think about how many times Arabs burn rubber into the atmosphere.
I think it's about time that environmentalists take a stand and condemn Arab use of such methods that are harmful to our health, the health of all peoples in the area.
It is a violation of human rights.
At least in Peru it seems to be:
The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (a division of the Organization of American States) forwarded a petition alleging human rights violations to the Government of Peru, giving them two months to respond. The petition asserts that severe contamination from a smelter owned by U.S.-based Doe Run Corporation, and lack of effective pollution and human health controls by the government, gravely threaten the rights of the residents of La Oroya, Peru, including their rights to life, health, and integrity.
In China, toxic air kills 750,000 people prematurely each year.
And tobacco smoke in Pakistan is dangerous, not to mention everywhere elese in the world.
So, can we attract the attention of human rights groups to this air pollution by Arabs and demand that they join us in asking for a ban on this type of protest?
