War Protests or Pro-Hamas Hate Rallies? Video from the IPT

Posted by avideditor on January 14, 2009

From the IPT

Thousands of people have participated in demonstrations throughout the country that are critical of Israel’s military incursion into Gaza. Thousands gathered January 10 in Washington’s Lafayette Park. A coalition of national Muslim-American groups, including the Muslim American Society and the Council on American-Islamic Relations organized bus caravans to bring protesters to the capital.Rather than simply take issue with the battle in Gaza, demonstrators in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Anaheim, Houston and other cities repeatedly have engaged in ugly hate speech and chants that echo the goals and dogma of Hamas and other terrorist groups.Fistfights and chants calling for the murder of Jews and invoking the Holocaust expose the true motivation behind distressingly large segments of the protesters. After all, the conflict Israel wages is against Hamas, a terrorist organization whose charter contains virulent anti-Semitism, calls for Israel’s destruction and rejects any peaceful settlement to the conflict.As this report shows, radical, hateful attacks have been prominent in rallies across the country.
