Anti-Israeli Protests in Second Life

January 7, 2009 -

Israel's controversial incursion into Gaza has sparked virtual protests in Second Life, reports scribe Wagner James Au.

On his New World Notes blog, Au describes the protests taking place at SL Israel, a Second Life area which recreates Israeli landmarks and tourist attractions in virtual form:

Last week when Israel began launching guided missiles at Hamas targets in Palestine... SL Israel became a flashpoint of another kind.  As the airstrikes pounded Gaza, so did protesters, teleporting into SL Israel, waving flags.

"Lots of people yelling," Beth Odets tells me. "They were going on and on with slurring obscenities about murderous Israeli forces, etc."  She gives me a screenshot taken during the incursion, festooned with anti-war or pro-Palestinian signs, some depicting dead Arab children...

Where are the protests about the rockets fired as Isreali schools?

Re: Anti-Israeli Protests in Second Life

Last time I check the reason why Israel went to war was because Hamas was firing rockets randomly into there territory and broke the cease fire pact they had.

...And for 6 months before Israel responded. Now everyone's paying attention and yelling at Israel? Seriously, some people seem to think that Israel (and the US) are just mean bullies picking on the poor wittle defenseless Palestinians/Arabs/Muslims/(Insert Group Here). Hamas launched rocket attacked from residential buildings so that whenever Israel responds with an air strike on the launch point, it's bound to kill some "innocent civilians". They then hope civilian death counts add support to their cause.

of course protestors don't care about this.

Yeah, I wanted to try and put together a joke involving circumsized, flying penises wearing yarmulkes. But I just can't get my joke-mobile started this morning...

Heh, the irony is, neither side is the good side. This is simply meaningless bullshit that shouldn't have happened in the first place.

Re: Anti-Israeli Protests in Second Life

Both sides seem to act as if they have amnesia on the whole conflict since the beginning. That's why the blame game is never-ending.

Second.  No one is the good guy in this one.  You got hard-line Jews on one side pushing the rest of Israel to action and you got radical Arabs on the other poking the former with a stick.

In the middle are the innocent and diplomatic.  The former gets slaughtered and the latter are ignored.

Though the Middle East has always been a violent, bloody region.  The only time there's ever been "peace in the Middle East" was when an imperial power like Rome was in charge.

Pax Romana, my friend!

Re: Anti-Israeli Protests in Second Life

 We should have given the Israelites part of Italy, if anything. It was the Romans who fractured their civilization, seems only fitting they deal with the mess generations down the road.

Re: Anti-Israeli Protests in Second Life

Oh, I need to join in with a sign...   Now what should it say...  Protesters are psychopaths?  EA is the devil?  All war is terrorist war?  Screw it...  I dont feel like downloading SL.  I got it! 

I protest protesters.

Screw it, I don't care anymore...

Wonderkarpthe voice acting and story telling quality are awesome. Its like they took everything that was great about the original show, and Batman Animated Series'd it but kept it funny too01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
WonderkarpIts Awesome. Bebop and Rocksteady are going to debut this weekend. The new take is Bebop is a thief while Rocksteady is an arms dealer. took 3 seasons to get them on the show.01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
