Of course they won't go to any of the other Middle Eastern countries to protest against the apartheid regimes there or against the injustices the Muslim countries inflict upon their own people. After all, the protesters' commitment is not outweighed by their common sense and their basic instinct for survival.
Still, why don't these "human rights activists" protest in Europe?
Why did the Dane who claims to have suffered an unprovoked attacked by an IDF officer, not simply protest at home?
As it turns out, it's not because Europe is so lacking injustices.
No, it's because the Dane is not stupid:
While waiting for the results of the IDF investigation into the soldier who struck the protester, there are further indications of the difference between the violence in Denmark and what happened in Israel that indicate that the full story of clash between the IDF and the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is not yet known.

Yes, there is a reason why those protesters come to Israel, and it has nothing to do with bravery or commitment.
But don't expect them to admit it.
