More Violence Against anti-Zionist Dissidents

Two-and-a-half weeks ago, I wrote the "... ICPJ has consistently been silent about physical assaults against local anti-Zionist dissidents by Zionists and so-called peace activists. ... So far, none of [these assaults] have resulted in serious injury but if things continue as they have then it may eventually come to that and without the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice (ICPJ) or Michigan Peaceworks ever having uttered a peep against it." Well, the very next Saturday a Beth Israel congregant/visitor perpetrated yet another assault for which he was arrested and, so far, not a word of protest or concern from ICPJ or Michigan Peaceworks even though the incident was reported on page B3 of the Ann Arbor News (text below). I have seen the videotape of the assault and arrest and hope to get it uploaded soon. The assailant didn't just try, he hit the camera hard while it was being held up to the user's face.

Protester says man tried to hit camera

A man entering the Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor was arrested on an assault charge Saturday after a confrontation with a pro-Palestinian protester, Ann Arbor Police said.

Sgt. Matt Lige would not provide details of the incident, but said it happened in view of a police officer and that the person was arrested. Lige said the person was released pending authorization of charges from the city attorney.

The assault allegedly happened outside the synagogue at 2000 Washtenaw Ave., where pro-Palestinian protesters have conducted regular protests for three years regarding Middle East issues.

One of the protesters, Henry Herskovitz, a member of the Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends, said he witnessed the incident Saturday. Herskovitz said a man approached a member of his group who was taking pictures of people. The man said he didn't want to have his picture taken and tried to hit the camera out of the protester's hands.

Jeff Levin, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Washtenaw County, declined to comment.

You sound like a rather unbalanced Islamo-nazi enabler to me.

I'm sure you support Terry Jone's right to protest Muslims' oppression of the infidel.
 
I support Terry Jones' right to nonviolently protest and, based upon my current understanding of the facts, I believe that what Wayne County and City of Dearborn officials did was unconstitutional. I hope Terry Jones brings a civil rights law suit against both entities. Fortunately, I don't have to agree with your or his idiocy to support freedom of speech.
