When the all middle east is shaking in rivers of chaos and blood, when American jets target Libyan forces, Libyan jets target civilians, when in Yemen and Bahrain protesters are getting shot in the head, when Damascus has just joined to the party with its own shooting at protesters, when Grad rockets are being launched at Ashkelon (again) and IAF jets bomb targets in Gaza (again), when radical settlers issue paybacks at innocent palestinians and radical palestinians butchering children in their sleep, this video and several photos, of the Purim holiday festivities taking place last friday in Tel-Aviv,including the parade of the forigen workers kids in which african,asian,phillipinos and jewish kids and teenagers walking in the middle of the streets in all kind of costumes and masks, sure puts this city as a complete middle east antithesis to Bengazi,Tripoli,Damascus,Yemen,Baharain,Gaza and Hebron current situations...
sure, the pollution is quite high, the traffic jams can be catastrophic in rush hours and finding a parking space is mission impossible, but on the bottom line this coastal vibrant city, which many in Israel cynicaly call her "The bubble" for being disconnected in its own world from the other parts of the country , can maybe give a nice example of what the life in this bloody,problematic and complicated region should be.
note: the Hari Krishna bunch (2:40 at the vid.) are not in costumes. they are reall and can be spotted there every Tel-Avivian weekend.
