  3. though not the will of the protesters this still might be the will of the majority we often only want too see what we want. we must remember they are not us. they have never had what we have had and they might be better off for it. though its clear some rights are not equal as they should be you dont hear of the religious leaders molesting their children they just marry them. kids are not shooting at schools and killing their parents they just blow themselves up for their god. palastine elected hammas leaders afganistan will elect taliban its hardwired 3000years and its not going to change overnight
