Yes, burn all the flags! What's a Jewish flag- do you mean the Israeli flag? What's an Arab flag- you'll need to pick a country.

For starters, I believe that you need some sort of permit to have a barbecue in a public park. Are you just going to light a bunch of flags on fire and drop them on the ground, maybe creating a hazardous situation? What are you going to do when passersby engage you in at best, polite conversation or at worst, punch you in the face or beat you up? Cry 'it's just a social experiment'?

You have the right to do all sorts of things. That doesn't mean that you should.

The safest park to do this in is TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK. Go by the chess tables. That's where all the homeless//squatter//anarchist punks hang out

I suggest those little Chinese-made flags. They're acetate so they burn really quickly. Just make sure you don't let them drip on your hand.

It's free speech and that's how it should continue to be. Still, if you do it somewhere where it could hurt someone then that is illegal.
