"You need a big oven, that's what you need," a female protester yelled. Like many other protests of Israel's campaign in Gaza, this one ended badly — police had to cool an ugly fight between supporters of Israel and Gaza, breaking up the warring sides as their screaming and chanting threatened to turn into something worse.

Just a nutcase, unfortunately a nutcase that makes legitimate questioning of Israel hegemony more difficult.

This is not an isolated incident. Haven't you noticed the violent protests against Jews? Especially in Europe?

Unfortunately, and I've said it before, Israel does not make friends when they are so obviously doing the wrong thing. And unfortunately, that might translate into people saying outlandish things against Jews. I think it's wrong, but hey, I guess it's no better than after 9/11 all arabs were deemed terrorists by a lot of nutbags.

This happened a week or longer ago...and I have seen it on tv and it shows what kind of people are protesting...I didn't expect much else from these protesters...maybe that they will end up as homoside bombers....

Europeans and Russia have had it in for the Jews for centuries.

Not sure why, though.

It's getting pretty bad. Now the skinheads and neo-Nazis have been welcomed by Hamas supporters with open arms. (I wonder if the Israel-bashers on this Forum are comfortable embracing the Nazis..?)

You sly dog..trying to equate pro-palestinian or those taking the middle stand with the neo-nazis & skinheads.
This is no surprise considering Israel has Moderator cut: no name calling like you with your contemptable attitude towards the palestinians. I wonder if the Zionist apologists are comfortable with Israel using Nazi tactics in its war

Sly is right. Nearly every sign except the big one are middle of the road rhetoric. Stop the killing, Israel out of Palestine, etc. Even Hebrew soldiers being interviewed are now questioning their orders in recent video footage shot at the front. Of course, censorship is prohibiting more of these patriots from having their voices heard.

I don't know why blind support for Israel exists. It's probably a mix of gentile guilt, race empathy (Israels look an awful lot like WASPs and other assorted caucasian types), being a party line towing apologist.

There was an interesting editorial published in a local newspaper recently which raised an interesting thought or two: the writer compared other wars and lands taken over by the 'opponents' comparing with Russia, Germany, Japan and the like and she noted that when their wars were over, those conquerers did not have to 'give back' those lands they 'won' in a fight...why was Israel being singled out and condemned...interesting.

The comment above about Jews being greedy and arrogant pigs; that is an outrageous statement to make. To continue that kind of attitude and/or belief system clearly does not help unifying this country in any way; how would it be to go back to the stereotypical comments about Italians, Germans, Irish, Poles...each ethnic group has their own traits, qualities and when combined give us a culture and flavorful community...perhaps try something new, think about similiarities rather than differences and then educate yourself about those diferences, the more education about a group, the less bias, racism and prejudice...and we can all live happily together.

For someone who has never been to a Catholic Church mass they might be overwhelmed with the incense, the kneeling, standing, and sitting; years ago, they would have sat in the Church listening to a mass in Latin and not know what was going on; so that difference means, what, condemn the Catholic Church or be comnfortable in the commonality of a house of worship and interested in the difference; to to a Bapist Church and sit and listen to amazing gospel music and joy resounding throughout that Church; and then go to a Quaker meeting and listen to the silence.

My point, all is interesting...by and large, we are more 'alike' than dis-alike, except, sadly, for those who disparage differences, condemn what they don't know, and scapegoat those that frighten them.
