The United States has, despite claims to the contrary from the hate-Bush contingent, the greatest freedom of speech laws on the planet. I agree with them wholeheartedly. Sometimes, when people say hateful things it draws attention to a problem, or a group of people, that need to be paid attention to.
Like many other protests of Israel’s campaign in Gaza, this one ended badly — police had to cool an ugly fight between supporters of Israel and Gaza, breaking up the warring sides as their screaming and chanting threatened to turn into something worse.
But some protesters at this rally in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., took their rhetoric a step further, calling for the extermination of Israel — and of Jews.
Separated by battle lines and a stream of rush-hour traffic outside a federal courthouse last week, at least 200 pro-Palestinian demonstrators faced off against a smaller crowd of Israel supporters.
Most of the chants were run-of-the-mill; men and women waving Palestinian flags called Israel’s invasion of Gaza a “crime,” while the pro-Israel group carried signs calling the Hamas-run territory a “terror state.”
But as the protest continued and crowds grew, one woman in a hijab began to shout curses and slurs that shocked Jewish activists in the city, which has a sizable Jewish population.
“Go back to the oven,” she shouted, calling for the counter-protesters to die in the manner that the Nazis used to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust.
“You need a big oven, that’s what you need,” she yelled.
The unidentified woman, who protest organizers said was a Muslim, wasn’t the only protester who raised hackles that day. Other demonstrators held signs that said “Nuke Israel,” and a number made comparisons to the Holocaust, accusing Israel of genocide in Gaza.

If Mexico became a terrorist state which refused to acknowledge the right of the United States to exist, and began lobbing missiles into the United States, it would be immediately clear to anyone which side was in the right, and which was in the wrong.
Perhaps it is time to take a harder, longer look at the immigration practices of this country in regards to “Islamist” countries, before they bring their 14 century old battle against Jews and “infidels” to our shores.
Bruce Riedel, a Middle East intelligence analyst for the White House National Security Council, said: “A great deal of concern about threats to the US homeland is based upon attacks coming out of the UK. The 800,000 or so British citizens of Pakistani origin are regarded by the American intelligence community as perhaps the single-biggest threat environment.” link
I mean, really. Is the employment system in this country so desperate for labor that we need to permit this individual into the country to monitor your credit card account?
I don’t think so.
