The proverbial pox on both your houses | World War 4 Report

Today’s depressing news that some 10,000 joined a “New York Stands with Israel” rally at the UN (overseen by Chuck Schumer, of course) was compounded for me by a demoralizing encounter outside St. Mark’s Church. I was biking down Second Ave., and saw the “FREE PALESTINE” banner outside the church, and stopped to check it out… To my disappointment it was the highly problematic group “If Americans Knew.” It is obvious from its name that this is basically a right-wing naitonalist formation with (at least) an anti-Semitic streak. Right, “Americans” are pure and righteous (never mind Gitmo and Abu Ghraib and “shock & awe”), but are being hoodwinked into supporting atrocities by those wily Jews… I nonetheless took one of their flyers just to see what it said, and was dismayed to find it was a big quote from the vile Gilad Atzmon, a peddler of the most rank anti-Semitic garbage…
