Act locally. Think Globally. Third Anniversary of Operation Cast Lead

This week marks the third anniversary of Operation Cast Lead. In response to rocket fire directed at her civilian areas, the Israeli air force began wide-scale attacks against Hamas targets. Hamas headquarters, smuggling tunnels, rocket factories were destroyed. Over 700 Hamas fighters were killed. The ojectives of Cast Lead were:

* To stop the bombardment of Israeli civilians by destroying Hamas' mortar and rocket launching apparatus and infrastructure.

* To reduce the ability of Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza to perpetrate future attacks against the civilian population in Israel.

All throughout Operation Cast Lead, humanitarian aid continued flowing to Gaza, from Israel.

In the San Francisco Bay area, the weeks were marked by protests, organized by the usual groups. This clip, originally broadcast on the KTVU website, shows an enraged crowd of hundreds of Palestinian "peace" activists attempting to crash through police barricades to attack a handful of pro-Israel activists. Yes, this near lynching took place in America.

re| Jewish super heroes? Nice. But a true anarcho-Zionist believes "No masters save ourselves ".

The sheer irrational hatred on the faces of the pro-Palestinian mob is unmistakable.

Sad, that in the United States in the 21st. century such repulsive racism not only still exists, but is encouraged. Clearly the pro-Pally youths in this clip have not derived any benefit from either their immersion in civilization or their exposure to our educational system.
