Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Streets of Seething ??
Hat Tip LGF

The Arab Street is raging.

CAIRO, Egypt - Several thousand protesters at one of Cairo’s main mosques called Friday for holy war against Israel to help the Palestinians in their conflict with the Jewish state.

More than 3,000 people packed Al-Azhar Mosque, the most prominent institution in the Sunni Arab world, for prayers and a demonstration organized by the Egyptian government’s top rival, the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Rulers of Arab countries, start holy war! God is great!” men shouted, their voices ringing through the rafters of the 1,000-year-old building.

Cairo has a population of 16 MILLION

And so is the Turkish Street.

ISTANBUL, Turkey - Thousands of angry Turks burned an Israeli flag Friday and chanted “Murderer Israel, Get out of Palestine!” to protest Israel’s offensive into the Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of women, wearing black chadors or covering their heads with Islamic-style head scarves, carried Palestinian flags and banners which read: “Israel is burning Palestine.”

Police said about 5,000 people participated in the protest outside Istanbul’s Bayazid Mosque.

Istanbul has a population of 11.3 MILLION

Can someone tell me what's wrong with this picture and WHERE
the phrase "Strets are seething" comes from?

Because to me it looks more like the Arab and Turkish Streets yawned.

To compare it with the City I live in, if there were a demonstration in front of City Hall of about 50 people, I don't think the local paper would headline a story, "City Streets Seething".

Besides in that part of the world, how much would it cost to throw up a 3 to 5 thousand person demonstration anyway?

Do these events sound like an outpouring of popular condemnation?
