Hundreds? Wow...I see more people than that waiting on line for a bus to work in the morning...why isn't the AP reporting from the Old Bridge Park & Ride?
Tony Benn, a veteran leftist politician in the governing Labour Party, opened the one-day meeting by calling the war "illegal, immoral and unwinnable."
He said the peace movement wants to see coalition troops withdrawn from Iraq, justice for Palestinians and a ban on any Western military attacks on Iran or Syria...
So the European left has taken up Dean's rallying cry word for word (nice work, governor! Ever hear the phrase "giving aid and comfort to the enemy" before?). And they want to tie our hands so that we cannnot fight the nations that are the world's primary sponsors of terrorism. And I wonder what "justice for the Palestinians" means, exactly? Is that just another way of saying "death to the Jews?"
The scheduled speakers included Sheehan, who has become a focus of anti-war sentiment in the United States by camping outside the Texas ranch of President George W. Bush; Hasan Zergani Hashim, a spokesperson for Iraq's radical Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr; and leftist British legislator George Galloway.
So Sheehan has directly allied herself with al-Sadr, who is responsible for the deaths of dozens, if not hundreds, of American soldiers, including possibly Mother Sheehan's own son. What a sick woman. Note the banner she marches under:
So Cindy, does "Freedom for Palestine" mean freedom for the Jews to live without fear of terrorist attacks and nuclear annihilation?
Or do you think it means something else; like perhaps pushing those pesky Jews into the sea so that Hamas and Fatah and Islamic Jihad can create a "free" Palestine? After all, look at what a great job they have done in the territories!
I continue to exhort the MSM to focus on this woman, and to do the best they can to connect her with prominent Democrats. Just plays into our hands...
