Its often been said that at first Palestinians hijacked airplanes, now they hijack agendas.
Palestinian activists have been trying to co-opt the message of Martin Luther King for years, ignoring both his message of peace and co-existence, and his support for Israel. Yesterday they brought new meaning to Dr. Kings' words “There is nothing more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity” On the day we commemorate Dr. King's message of tolerance, a group of Palestinians and their leftist enablers blocked traffic on the San Mateo bridge, in a very public tantrum. that served only to irritate and alienate their intended audience.
Eleven people were arrested

“One officer reported handling at least four
collisions that resulted in minor injuries or property damages,” said
Officer Daniel Hill of the California Highway Patrol.
Officers responded to small crashes on both sides of the bridge, but it was unclear how many vehicles were banged up.
One driver ditched a Honda Accord on the span after
it was sandwiched between cars in westbound lanes during the protest,
the CHP said.
The vehicle had “major front- and rear-end damage and the person ultimately abandoned it,” Hill said.
Officers arrested 68 protesters on suspicion of
blocking a roadway and obstructing entry on public land, both
misdemeanors. Ten of the protesters were booked into San Mateo County
Jail while the others were cited and released, authorities said.
Prosecutors could bring additional charges because of the crashes.
“We have to see what happened,” said San Mateo County
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. “There were a lot of people very
bothered about what happened here.”
