I'm not sure if there are any peace marches for Gaza slated for this weekend.

I'm not sure if Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young will be on hand to deliver another speech replete with more urban myths concocted by Hamas and completely unsubstantiated like the one she told the crowd at Sunday's rally about the mother of three holding a white flag, who upon emerging from her house, was allegedly shot in the head by the Israeli military (although as a parliamentarian she will, in due course, inevitably be brought to account for recklessly making such a statement in public).

I'm not sure how the Greens and many others who took part feel about being part of a nation wide rabble that ignores the environment and destroys valuable plants in an orgy of hate in which racist words and banners played not an insignificant part.

And I'm not sure that any of the demonstrators will be turning out this Sunday to protest against the murders and torture of Palestinians that are taking place in Gaza today - 'Hamas rounding up, torturing Fatah activists in Gaza Strip'.
