The attack represented the single deadliest day for US Marines since the Battle of Iwo Jima
Not a major surprise from a group that has been cozy with Hamas and has dedicated itself to campaigning for Islamic terrorists around the world. And as Amy Miller at Legal Insurrection reports, they let their Hezbollah freak flag fly.
The nasty weather didn’t stop a group of around 60 anti-Israel activists from storming the steps of the Washington Convention Center and blocking at least one entrance to the conference grounds. Code Pink and other anti-Israeli groups went into a frenzy against AIPAC, the “Israel lobby,” and what they believe is the “Apartheid” State of Israel.
I also saw harassment of men, women, and children who had done nothing to deserve it except make the mistake of revealing their conference badge before they reached the door. Those who were obviously religious Jews (based on their head coverings, clothing, and facial hair) got it worse. There were shouts of “Go Home” hurled at the attendees.
There was also the Hezbollah flag flying overhead, as this video shows. There were chants that “BDS is the best” (Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement), and “The State of Israel’s Got to Go.”
So they're making it obvious. Support for terrorists, calls for the destruction of the Jewish State and displays of anti-Semitism.
You can hate the Jews all you want, Code Pink, but you can’t do it on private property.
These people are stupid and crazy enough to follow Medea Benjamin. Watch as they get exactly what they want on Sunday at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in DC: fantasies of brutal police oppression.
If a black female police officer grabs a white leftist anti-Semite, which one is the good guy?
The yellow truck that slammed into the ground floor of the Marine Corps barracks that day was packed with gas canisters and explosives creating a blast with the equivalent explosive power of 20,000 pounds of TNT. The bed of the truck was lined with concrete, a design intended to direct the blast upwards into the building, which was literally lifted off the ground before falling back upon itself and its inhabitants.
