Israel/Palestine

On not confronting the haters in one’s own ranks

If I attended a pro-Israel demonstration, and I heard someone shout “Death to Arabs,” I believe I would find it in my power to confront that person, to tell him or her to shut up and to suggest strongly that he or she leave. It would be an extremely minor act of courage on my part.

So I wish someone at an ANSWER-sponsored anti-Israel demonstration in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, had done something similar to the young woman who shouted “Go back to the ovens” (3:24) at pro-Israel counter-demonstrators.

Later it took a line of police to protect the pro-Israel demonstrators from what turned into a mob.

(It appears the photographer of this video has dubious views on a number of subjects. If leftists were providing this kind of documentation, I’d be happy to link to them too.)
