Anti-Israel Group 'Invades' Boston Israel Consulate

Dozens of anti-Israel activists attempted to barge into the Israeli consulate in Boston over the weekend in protest over Israel's seizure of the Canadian-Irish flotilla ships that attempted to sail to Gaza. Bearing PA flags, the activists attempted to storm the building but were turned back. They swore to return, shouting slogans about how the apartheid regime in Israel must fall.
The activists were spillovers from the Occupy Boston protests, one of many being held in the U.S. demanding social justice. At least three people have been arrested on drug charges in the protests over the past several days, and police report numerous knife fights between homeless individuals who are participating in the protests. Police also report a significant rise in vandalism in downtown Boston.
Meanwhile, six of the flotilla members who were arrested Friday were released on Saturday night. One of the detainees was an Israeli citizen, Mag'id Ca'il, an Arab from Haifa. He was interviewed by a correspondent of Iranian television who accompanied by the flotilla. In the interview, he claimed he was threatened by IDF soldiers.
Police have been arranging for the deportation of the flotilla members, but several of them told reporters Saturday night that they were refusing to leave Israel. The activists said that they preferred to remain in prison in Israel and go to court in order to make their opinions heard, than to leave voluntarily.

The Occupy Boston activists are exercising their constitutional right to slash and stab each other. The police should not interfere with this right, guaranteed in the First and Second Amendments. If anything the government should be passing out free, unused knives to make sure nobody gets AIDS.
OWS being anti-Semitic!? /s
One of the detainees was an Israeli citizen, Mag'id Ca'il, an Arab from Haifa.
Stupid policy. Israel should never make any Arab a citizen.

You’re about 63 years too late. 20% of Israeli citizens are Arabs, and Arabs born within Israel have been citizens since the founding. In Jerusalem, Arabs born there have the option to become citizens. In Judah and Samariah, not unless it’s annexed.

Sorry, the funds for supplying weapons to anti American terrorists were used by Eric Holder and the ATF to arm Mexican drug cartels with assault weapons and more effectively and efficiently murder US citizen taxpayers.
At this time we cannot afford to replace those funds, being short on taxpayers you know.
