Large Protest Against the Israeli Assault On Gaza and Lebanon

Hundreds protest in front of the Israeli consulate in San Francisco in opposition to the Israeli assault against Lebanon. This destructive and illegal expansion could not have happened without the military, financial and political backing of Washington. The Israeli government justifies its action as an attempt to free two Israeli soldiers while it continues to hold 9,000 Palestinian political prisoners.

Need I say more?
Or some of the ongoing mass murder being committed by Israel right now--that would be a good symbol for peace, huh?

Nope, the vast majority of Jews don't hate Arabs, just terrorists. Jews and Arabs consider themselves related peoples by way of our common ancestor, Abraham.

Hundreds of Palestinians were bused in from the AL Awda conference at SFSU, and hundreds of Zionists just showed up in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Israel. It was a big turnout by local standards.
Particuarly alarming were the violent messages on the Palestinian side, in contrast with the Zionists singing "All we are saying, is give peace a chance"

The display of such classic symbols of tolerance as fists dripping blood shows the commitment to peace of this particular group of haters.
I half expected them to bring out white doves, then bite their heads off.
The chants supported violence and hate.. the message was violence and hate.

Homeland security was there in force, and they brought out all their toys. Didn't know that, kids, didja?

IF Israel is a Terrorist State, then Palestine, Syria, and Iran are too.
Sorry ... I have ZERO sympathy for the Palestinians. They should go back to their homeland ... Jordan.

The state IS terrorism.

No matter who runs it. It will oppress most people for the profit of a few, and it will kill lots of innocent people for the sake of territorial dominance. It's also a great way for politicians to violate rules like civil rights and constitutionally-guaranteed rights.... where applicable, while (slash-in-order-to) enriching themselves.

So why are all these anarchists running around supporting one state in its war with another? Did the 20th century just not happen? Did they just not notice it? Or what?
