"San Francisco....where you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy"

Over the weekend, I was in downtown Little Tokyo, for Nisei Week. I think I must have missed out on the weekend protests, as I've been checking out Zombie's photos from the San Francisco anti-U.S./Israel rally.

I should have known that something was going on, as a couple of people walked by my booth with placards. I tried to catch up to them, to find out what their signs said, but it was crowded and I had to return back to my booth. I suspect there must have been a San Francisco equivalent going on by city hall, which is only blocks away from Little Tokyo.

I did manage to get a couple of photos of Japanese-American war veterans in the parade:

Instead of republishing some of the vile photographs of the leftie-lunatics this time around, I'll just provide you with the link. Although, this one seriously made me chuckle:

I wonder if the sign-holder is aware?

As Laura Ingraham said on her radio program yesterday morning, political ads should be made of these fringe-fanatics, come election time. Showing them off to middle America, and knowing which political party these nutters are more closely aligned to, can only be good for the Republican Party.

The pro-Israel counter-protestors, however, is a thing of beauty, and I have no problem, viewing and publishing these:

As AirForceWife put it, in a previous comment thread, in order for there to be peace, both sides have to want it. Israel has ached for much so, that with the help of President Clinton, 97% of the West Bank and 3% of Israeli land was brokered on behalf of peace. But Palestinians and the Arab world have not wanted peace with Israel: they have ached for Israel's destruction.

Tell me of an instance when Israelis have marched and chanted, "Death to Palestinians!" , "Death to Muslims!". Yet in the Islamic States, we have heard it so often from those practitioners of "the religion of peace", that we have grown desensitized to it. And the pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel left excuse their behavior. Instead of recognizing the hatred of radical-Islamists (which infects even mainstream Muslims) as a source of the world's woes, they'd rather blame the U.S. and Israel for the evil conduct of others. After all, they can do this with the security of knowing we won't behead them for it. Criticizing Islamists, however, might get you killed. God forbid, we should be "creating more terrorists" by standing up to terrorism.

I think it's also important to note that not all Israelis believe in peace. If you think about an Israeli PM was assassinated by an extremist form Israel.

Though never has an Israeli gone into Palestine or Lebanon ... or any other country and blown themselves up. I'm sure some have gone on missions and haven't returned. But it's always for the state of Israel. Always.

Some people in Israel are very pro-do nothing and not pro-action.

Islam = Peace
Israel = War mongering
USA = War mongering

When the hell did the poles reverse?

I've been very happy to see the pro-Israeli protest. Zombie took pics of the last one but not this one.

I have to agree with old soldier...what happened? How is it that someone who has no qualms about using women and children as human shields, who will strap explosives to themselves and walk into a crowded restaurant and blow themselves is it that they are freedom fighters and not terrorists?

Yigal Amir did not assassinate Yitzhak Rabin because he wanted to keep fighting, but because he was a part of a right wing group that vehemently disagreed with the methods by which Rabin was pursuing peace - land for peace. I think that's an important difference to show between the two extremist ideologies.

Not only that, but although the PA (former PLO, and always a terrorist organization no matter what they call themselves)is an overwhelming majority, and although they may give pretty English comments about peace, in Arabic they call for shahids, shahida, and death to all Jews as a matter of course. Their textbooks do not show Israel on a map, and they routinely hold summer camps that have the kids goose stepping around and chanting about martyrdom. Paid for by the UN, of course.

Israel immediately denounces people like Amir and Goldstein and then puts them away. The PA makes posters glorifying their endemic extremists.

There is no comparison. But the world makes excuses for the Palestinians and condemns Israel. Just another example of "lack of might makes right".

Either both sides have to want peace or one side has to win.
