    I know why I stopped going: The young men who carried the Israeli flag with a red swastika painted across it, yelling "Stop the occupation!"

    No, thank you.

    •  I stopped because of the fringe groups too. (3+ / 0-)

      And of course, the fringe groups are the ones the media wants to cover, if it bothers to cover a protest at all.

      The day the war started, I was at the Federal Builiding in L.A. with god knows how many thousands of protestors.  Most of us looked like normal, nicely dressed, middle class, professional West L.A. people who were pissed about the war.

      So who does the local news interview?  The one Arab with the crazy hair, screaching about Palestine and blaming the Jews for everything.

      You're so right.  Those radical fools drive decent people away.  They have highjacked the movement with their BS.
