Well, peace does ensue when you kill off one party in a war...

...but I would not really call a demonstration calling for that a "peace demonstration". Not as such.

The Pysäyttäkää sota group nowadays has an anti-war demonstration every Monday. OK, they don't really even claim to be anti-war, their webpage says "against Israel's military action", but their name is "Stop the War".

I am not surprised that these people exist, that they picked a side in that war or that they are demonstrating for it. That's their right, this is a free country. What I am surprised about is that these fuckers try, and indeed sometimes manage, to pass for pacifists.

Yesterday I ran into these lovely people near Stockmann. The demonstration was led by a group of people sporting traditional Finnish big black beards and hijabs (mostly not both on the same person though), but there was also a number of Finns of a blonder and less bearded kind. Some of the bearded kind tended to carry portraits of the world-famous pacifist Hassan "It is an open war until the elimination of Israel and until the death of the last Jew on earth" Nasrallah.

One pacifist of the beardless kind wore a lovely pacifistic t-shirt saying "bomb Israel". The same guy also expressed his opinion with a poster.

They were screaming "down with USA", the favorite mating call of the moonbats worldwide, whether they are protesting Israeli military action or Danish cartoons.

According to the local tabloid Ilta-Sanomat the peaceful demonstration culminated in violence when the demonstrators ran into members of the Finland for Jesus organization who climbed on their bus and put up posters with quotes from bible about God blessing Israel. The pacifists started throwing eggs, tomatoes, flowerpots and bottles, screaming "Death to Israel" in Arabic and waving Hezbollah flags.
