Counter-Protest at the SF Israeli Consulate (pics)

You have to go to the link to check out the photos:

I was there. Huge pro-Israel counter-protest. And anyone walking by would know immediately who the enemy is. Let's put it this way, there were only American flags on one side (can you guess which one?). And the pro-Palis chanting slogans in favor of Hamas and Hezbollah didn't help. Not to mention the keffiyeh-clad terrorist wannabees and the headscarf brigage. The crusty old lefties chanted dutifully along and the "Jewish Voice for Peace" morons did their suicidal best to cheer for their own demise. The usual suspects...

Too much "peace" for me on the pro-Israel side (I'm a warmonger!), but good for the 250-300 people who showed up!

Notice the absence of American flags on the anti-Israel side.

Exactly. And note the Pali flags with the Arabic lettering (wonder what it says?) and the blood-dripping imagery. Many of the chants were anti-Bush and Iraq war as well.

If anyone hasn't figured out by now that Israel and America face the same enemy, they never will.

I can't believe there are Americans protesting in favor of Hamas. I see you pictures and just shake my head. How can people in our society be so incredibly misinformed? In SF no less. Don't they know what the Muslims would do to SF if they had the chance?

I guess QUIT (Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism) hasn't figured out yet that they'd be stoned to death were the Palis to take over....

Er, yeah. I think calling them misinformed is an understatement. Are those gay pride flags showing alliance with Hamas??? I'd like to see the people holding those flags try that in Gaza or in any Middle Eastern country. Israel is the only place they wouldn't be attacked. I mean, just how stupid can one be?

Seems to me, that in spite of a lot of charitable souls willing to risk a lot for their countrymen . . . a lot of countrymen deserve whatever early graduation from this life they seem to be seeking.

Suicidal idiots.

The tableclothes are terrorist chic ;-)

The Asian kids just happened upon the event (as far as I know) and joined in with the American flags.

This is pretty common in SF, where there's a large Asian-American and very patriotic (especially among the kids born here) population.

When we protested outside of Lowell High School for Cindy Sheehan's "appearance," we were joined by a bunch of Asian students who had relatives in the military or were in the JROTC (currently under attack from the school board, but that's another story...).

They certainly have nothing in common with the local lefty and pro-Pali crowd. And these young people really want to express their patriotism.

This one really makes me mad. IF the US was helping Israel as we're being accused, Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria and Iran would no longer exist.

Great photos, hope the government is taking notes, perhaps some of those Palestinian sympathizers might be here illegally? Time for them to go.

The problem is that "they" as in "The Arabs" NEVER did it "Israel's way." A day has never gone by where they tried to work out a peaceful settlement. From day one of Israel's existance, they've tried to destroy the country and kill the Jews. It's Israel's civility and restraint that's led to the situation we're seeing now. They really do need to get "midevil on the arabs' collective asses." Once the arabs are completely defeated and unable to make war, then maybe there's a chance for peace. Unfortunately, time after time, the UN has stopped Israel, but only after Israel's been attacked, beaten the arabs back, and begun to win. That's when the UN steps in... When Israel begins winning!

I liked this from Zombie Timez:


On a side street, a pair of Palestinian supporters were getting ready to enter the protest, using a window as a mirror to make sure their kaffiyeh-masks looked just right. I got a blurry snapshot of the moment.


Unfortunately for them, a pair of cops noticed their preparations. When the protesters said they weren't planning to do any violence, one of the cops asked, "Then why are you dressing up like a terrorist like that?" while the other made them empty their bags to make sure they didn't have any weapons. I didn't see how the situation resolved itself.

Good on the Cops for the question

"Then why are you dressing up like a terrorist like that?"
