On Monday August 4, 2014, an Israeli Arab drove a tractor into a nearly empty bus in Jerusalem and overturned it. An Israeli law enforcement officer shot the terrorist to death, but not before the terrorist killed at least one Israeli and injured several others.
Such inhumane acts are despicable, but there are a number of people and institutions in the city of Boston that seem to think that such attacks are good things. During the month of July, as fighting raged in Gaza between Israel and Hamas, so-called peace activists took to the streets of Boston and demonized the state of Israel and its Jewish supporters with signs that equated Zionism with Nazism. Others carried signs that falsely accused Israel of genocide.
They did these things at anti-Israel rallies that took place in July. The rallies were organized and publicized by a number of so-called peace groups, including, oddly enough, Jewish Voice for Peace.
Even a number of gay rights organizations have supported these rallies, which seems pretty odd given that in 2011, Hamas declared that homosexuals would be executed. Seeing gay rights activists condemn Israel, which respects the rights of gays and lesbians, as it seeks to defeat Hamas, a group that would murder them is simply bizarre.
