The parts of anti-Israel protests that don't get publicized

Yesterday, I noted that a man participating in an anti-capitalist protest on Wall Street was openly anti-semitic. I don't know whether similar sentiments were expressed in Saturdays' larger protests, but if they were - chances are no one would ever know.

Last night there was a protest in Vancouver against Israel's foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman who was speaking at the Jewish Community Center. A number of left-wing sites show the protesters in heroic terms as they denounce Lieberman as a "racist."

A peaceful protest is fine, and they have the absolute right to hold one.

However, an EoZ correspondent tells me that protesters were also saying that the Holocaust was a Jewish plot meant to gain sympathy for Jews.

In a similar little-reported event, protesters at the Paris airport on Sunday prevented passengers from checking in at the El Al counter by screaming "Death to Israel" and "Death to Jews."

Also, thugs tried to break into a kosher wine tasting in Paris, also screaming "Death to Jews" - and they tried to break down a glass door to the event. Police took their time before responding. The witness to the event said it felt like Kristallnacht.

These are the parts that you do not usually hear about when these protests occur.
