Dozens of activists protested on Tuesday evening against an alternative Memorial Day ceremony held by the leftist organization Combatants for Peace at the Tel Aviv port area.

True, I doubt there's any tyrant who hasn't been mourned. Including bin Laden. Does everyone know our President killed him?

I thought Special Forces did it. He just stayed out of their way and let them.

The protests in support of the Palestinian War are not a peace movement and neither were the commie sympathizers who marched in open support of the North Vietnamese military in the 1960s.
