Israel's loony Left being forced to confront reality?

I know, you're all wondering how Israel's loony Left is coping with Operation Pillar of Defense. Well, here are two data points from the center of the loony Left... Tel Aviv.

Here are Tel Aviv's denizens - most of whom presumably belong to the Left - cowering alongside the Ayalon Highway when the 'color red' (incoming rocket) alarm went off in Tel Aviv around 6:45 on Thursday night. Ironically, this picture comes from 'Peace' Now's Facebook page.

Meanwhile, not too far away, outside the Kirya (IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv), a demonstration against Operation Pillar of Defense was broken up by the color red alarm.

Will reality interfere in the Left's world view? Consider this: Tel Aviv IS MyBackYard - it's the only place in this country that matters to far too many members of the Branja. If one of the rockets shot at Tel Aviv had actually landed and killed a few people, there would be no one left in this country (other than the Arabs) to oppose the IDF wiping out Hamas. But our government is still afraid to actually go in and do that, and so they are doing everything they can to discourage Hamas from trying to provoke us.

Is a reality check coming?

Why aren't they posing as human shields? Why haven't they shipped themselves off to Gaza to 'protect' those people?

I'm not Jewish. Who are the "Branja"?

I've been following this story as closely as I can from Wisconsin. I had read that Barak had stated that this was not going to be just a volley back at Hamas; this time there was going to be some finality to the effort.

Israel will be vilified no matter what she does. Is there some calculus at play as to what course of action might bring Egypt or even Iran into the fray?

Obama probably figures he is at his maximum political strength right now, having just won an election, but it wasn't overwhelming and we in the U.S. still strongly support Israel.

Go for it!
