Ah, but the decision to protest "Israeli apartheid" is sane, though wicked: protesting the decisions of the Putin government (and its less-than-independent judiciary) stands as much chance of succeeding as my trying to pick up a corner of the Taj Mahal; not to mention the fact that if said government is vexed enough it is not above resorting to . . . vigorous extra-legal means of asserting its prerogatives. Our side, on the other hand, respects the rule of law, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, etc.; we're the nice little people who ask for things politely and don't like to make a scene. As your fellow Canadian blogress, Kate McMillan, likes to put it, "Not showing up to riot is a failed conservative strategy."
