Hamas Helpers: Intifada by the Bay

Zombie has the video from San Francisco's pro-Hamas rally on January 2, 2009:

At 22 seconds, pro-Hamas demonstrators lunge at five pro-Israel protesters standing on the other side of a police barricade. After the cops break it up, one of the pro-Israel activists says, "I'm a little spooked."

I'll say, and checking
the comments we see this:
Here’s a big F**K YOU to all the ZIONIST SCUM who think that dropping U.S. BOMBS out of US WARPLANES and KILLING INNOCENTS – mothers, babies, and non-violent GAZA SUFFERERS is a good thing. What if the tables were turned and the ISRAELI COWARDS only had non-guided, big bottle-rockets to fire at their OPPRESSORS?? What then? Would JEWS world-wide be TERRORISTS for FIGHTING FOR THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS?
Actually, Hamas doesn't care about it's own "mothers, babies, and non-violent GAZA SUFFERERS."

As
Alan Dershowitz recounted the other day:

In a recent incident related to me by the former head of the Israeli air force, Israeli intelligence learned that a family's house in Gaza was being used to manufacture rockets. The Israeli military gave the residents 30 minutes to leave. Instead, the owner called Hamas, which sent mothers carrying babies to the house.

Hamas knew that Israel would never fire at a home with civilians in it. They also knew that if Israeli authorities did not learn there were civilians in the house and fired on it, Hamas would win a public relations victory by displaying the dead. Israel held its fire. The Hamas rockets that were protected by the human shields were then used against Israeli civilians.
Meanwhile, Victor Davis Hanson says the global reaction is "creepy":

It is now clear that the so-called and much praised "international community," the hallowed U.N., the revered EU, all pretty much are indifferent to the survival of a democratic Israel, or are actively supportive of its terrorist Hamas enemy. Only the U.S. (for now) stands by a constitutional state in its war against a murderous terrorist clique, with annhilation its aim and religous fascism its creed.

Thanks for linking to that video, I had not yet watched it. I'm a little spooked myself, with the large numbers of savages that have been allowed in the country. The barbarians are inside the gates.

You're welcome, Grant!

Islam and our democracy are incompatible. The severe restrictions are unacceptable to us and they see the situation as anarchy when everyone gets to choose whatever they want to do.

Issues like these are ways of life conflict. One of the most common cause of wars is changing way of life, or the threat of change.
Islam has great difficulty adjusting to modern life. This is seen in the example we have here.
Anger management is a real problem in Islam. This is also seen in this example.

Grant,

You called them 'savages' and 'barbarians'. Are they not humans like yourself? -or are they less than you?
And I'm shocked to see that Donald approves of your dehumanizing terms.

Joe,

The same could be said of any religion. Those are not merely religious problems, but human problems.

Could you not analyze the lives of your friends, and indeed yourself, to find cases of anger management problems, difficulty adjusting to change, and offence taken to the liberalism of those around you?

You could draw the same conclusions about Christianity when considering the murders of doctors who perform abortions.

These incidents aren't rooted in Islam or Christianity, but in forcing others to adhere to one's beliefs.

And Donald:

You titled your post 'Hamas Helpers.' I heard many shouts of 'Free Palestine!' but nothing about Hamas.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

The enemy within our country is showing their true face, their true feelings and beliefs --- Israel should be removed.

I had hopes that the PC Islamic supporters here would see the enemy for what they are, but nope.

Very typical bunch of leftist and Muslim protesters. In August 2006 I and others counterprotested Muslim/leftist groups during the war in Lebanon a. The Washington DC police did a much better job than did this bunch in the video. I've been to counter several of these anti-war protests and the WDC cops really know what they are doing.

Anonymous - yes they are human and so we must be careful on our end not to overboard and portray the enemy as "subhuman." At times I have to admonish someone on the right over this.

But they are 'savages' and 'barbarians' and I see no problem with that description.

As for 'Hamas Helpers.'vs 'Free Palestine!' oh please. Don't be a dupe. Of course this bunch supports Hamas. Don't be a naive.

Appears that Israel should be bombing somewhere else.....and I would support that as well.

On the views of the Leftie contingent: I wonder if their signs would perhaps read differently if the Israelis were Russian allies and clients, flying MiGs and using T-80 tanks, AK-103's and Russian guns, and the Palestinians (of whatever flavor), were primarily American clients? I mean, are the Lefties here and in Europe shouting pro-Hamas slogans driven primarily by hatred of Israel and Jews, or of America?
