LA Demonstrators Clash Over Renewed Middle East Violence
KNBC Los Angeles ^ | 11/18/2012 | Ted Chen and Jason Kande

Police stand guard on Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood where two groups of
protesters demonstrating against recent violence in the Middle East clashed on
Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012.

Pro-Israel and pro-Muslim demonstrators clashed on Sunday outside the Federal Building during a protest over renewed violence in the Middle East.

Hundreds of demonstrators waving Israeli and American flags stood on one side of Wilshire on the Westside of Los Angeles, while a smaller number of pro-Palestinian demonstrators stood on the other.

“My family is over there. They have to sit in shelters. And they’re very stressed out, but unfortunately the world doesn’t realize this is a day to day reality, “said Noa Tishby, the founder of Act for Israel, a non-profit group representing Israel’s interests through the use of new media.

The demonstrations were held in response to renewed violence as Israel launched rockets on Gaza in response to attacks by Hamas on Israel.

The Hamas attacks were in retaliation for the assassination of a top Hamas military leader.

“Palestinians are struggling for liberation,” said Sophia Azeb, of the group Palestinian Women of Southern California. “They’re struggling for equality. They’re struggling for their basic human rights, which are being violated again and again. ”

At one point during Sunday’s protest, police were prompted to go into tactical alert because protesters blocked traffic along Wilshire, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Sunday’s demonstration was the latest to take place in Los Angeles.

Demonstrators sympathetic to both sides of the conflict gathered Thursday night near the Israeli Consulate on Wilshire Boulevard.

My sister and her husband went there today just got home a little while ago. Saw the cockroach arab scum across the street with their own little protest. Funny how that one person said that she wants “liberation” for Palestinians, does that include Sharia Law, which they all seem to be in favor of. Maybe if they knew how it felt to have hundreds of rockets thrown on their houses they would think differently, but I doubt it

Oh yes, Palestinians are struggling for the basic human right to wipe out Israel and take over the whole territory. My heart just bleeds for them. Really.

“...multiculturalism seems to operate to the same even-handedness as the old Cold War joke in which the American tells the Soviet guy that “in my country everyone is free to criticize the President”, and the Soviet guy replies, “Same here. In my country everyone is free to criticize your President.” Under one-way multiculturalism, the Muslim world is free to revere Islam and belittle the west’s inheritance, and, likewise, the western world is free to revere Islam and belittle the west’s inheritance. If one has to choose, on balance Islam’s loathing of other cultures seems psychologically less damaging than western liberals’ loathing of their own.”

... you can’t say anything about Islam, because my friend here gets a little excitable, and you really don’t want to get him worked up. The same people who tell us “Islam is a religion of peace” then turn around and tell us you have to be quiet, you have to shut up because otherwise these guys will go bananas and kill a bunch of people.”

More BS the attacks may have been blamed on the assassination of this leader, but Hamas is filled with blood-thirsty leaders and Muslims aren’t happy unless they are killing someone.

Loved that movie (DSLAHILTLTB).

That headline ranks up there with “Hundreds of Buddhists monks riot in Tibet”.

I wish that for every pro-Palestinian protest in the U.S there was a crowd 5x their size shouting them down.

“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, I support the civilized man.”

Judeophobia seems to paralyze the brains of 2-legged koranimals who occasionally can walk and chew gum at the same time...

Also their supporters, evidently.

Israel sends 80 trucks of food, medical supplies to gaza. Won’t hear that on the MSM nor from the protesting parasites in LA.

“Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb”

as I recall.

They barely got it written into the screen where the B-52 is refueling.

;)

By the way, that is supposed to be ONE SAC B-58 Hustler taking off, they just used the clip six times to show the group led by Turkey 1.

"The demonstrations were held in response to renewed violence as Israel launched rockets on Gaza in response to attacks by Hamas on Israel.

"The Hamas attacks were in retaliation for the assassination of a top Hamas military leader."

Here we have another blatant example of anti-Israel, pro-Islamist bias on the part of a leftist MSM outlet. If we are to take their nonsense literally, the "assassination of a top Hamas military leader" by Israel upset the peaceful co-existence between Israel and Hamas-controlled Gaza. No mention whatsoever of rockets from Gaza killing, injuring and threatening the lives of more and more Israeli civilians ever since the Israeli "disengagement" in 2005.

Sorry, lady. That is just part of Islam. Get used to it.

You are correct. I suspect the MSM thinks Israel should endure 700 rockets fired into its population centers this year and not retaliate.

One thing I will commend the Israelis on is that strike on the Hamas leader. Moving vehicle with all those buildings around. Exceptionally tough target with what looked to be very good results.

Well Islam will end up getting a “major wake up call” when the God of the Holy Bible protects Israel. Remember God has Israel’s back.
