Please take time to read this story at The Gathering Storm:
CAIR’s latest attempt at protecting our civil rights are charges against a California middle school teacher, Randy Ingram, who had the courage to state to his sixth grade class the obvious – that Iran has sworn to destroy the state of Israel.
It’s important to note that the announcement is being made at a museum that embodies everything that is really cool about the growing industry and technology in our country. If you are ever fortunate enough to visit the museum, you can stand before the vehicle in which John F. Kennedy was riding when he was shot in Dallas and the very bus Rosa Parks bravely became the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.”
So why would there be a problem with his announcing at The Henry Ford Museum? The NJDC has this to say:
“NJDC is deeply troubled by Governor Romney’s choice of locations to announce his Presidential campaign. Romney has been traveling the country talking about inclusiveness and understanding of people from all walks of life. Yet he chooses to kick off his presidential campaign on the former estate of a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite and xenophobe. Mitt Romney’s embrace of Henry Ford and association of Ford’s legacy with his presidential campaign raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Romney’s words or his understanding of basic American history,” said NJDC Executive Director Ira Forman.
Let’s get this straight – Democrat presidential candidate hires a Catholicophobe blogger and the left doesn’t have a problem with this. What she said in her blog should have nothing to do with the candidate (according to them).
Here are a few more great points from Yid with Lid:
OK so lets change the subject because Hillary is their sacred Icon and she can do NO wrong. How about other Democrats who are “Jewish Challenged” Why doesn’t the NJDC Blast them?
Congressman James “Jews control foreign policy” Moran (D-Va.)
John “I like Hezbollah” Dingell (D-Mich)
Or the Group who voted against a bill this past summer saying that Israel has a right to defend herself. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, John Conyers of Michigan, John Dingell of Michigan, Carolyn Kilpatrick of Michigan, Jim McDermott of Washington, Nick Rahall of West Virginia, and Pete Stark of California. In addition, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi removed her name as a co-sponsor of this important resolution because she didn’t want to be associated with it.
How come I never hear of the NJDC Blasting Hillary or Wesley or any of their cabal of “Jewishly” challenged representatives? But when Mitt Romney decides to make a Pro-Business declaration speech at the Ford Museum because the auto industry is badly in need of a solution….. WHAMMO! How could he do that?
Why weren’t they praising Romney when he said the following at the Herzliya conference last month?
“The war in Lebanon demonstrated that Israel is facing a jihadist threat that runs through Tehran, to Damascus, to Gaza. Hizbullah are not fighting for the coming into being of a Palestinian state, but for the going out of being of the Israeli state”
Certainly liberal Democrats wouldn’t be hypocritical? Mitt Romney is announcing at a museum glorifying accomplishments of all Americans, not an anti-semite shrine for a man that died in 1947.
According to the New York Times:
A 10-year-old Palestinian girl, Abir Aramin, died Friday from wounds sustained when she was hit by fire from the Israeli border police on Tuesday in the West Bank town of Anata, near Jerusalem, Palestinian witnesses and relatives said. Abir and her classmates were on recess from school when the Israeli forces fired on stone-throwing Palestinians with rubber bullets and stun grenades, according to the Palestinians.
Abir was hit in the head and collapsed, the Palestinians said. The border police said they were investigating the report.

Girl allegedly killed by Border Police may have been hit by rock

Ten-year-old Abir Aramin was apparently killed by a blunt object, and not by a rubber bullet, as some eyewitnesses claimed, according to the autopsy findings.
Aramin, of the West Bank village of Anata near Jerusalem, died last Thursday of injuries incurred two days earlier as she was standing near the entrance to her elementary school.
Eyewitnesses blamed her death on Border Police in the vicinity, but disagreed over the cause, with some saying that she was struck by a rubber bullet and others citing a shock grenade.
Apparently Camera has contacted the AP and NYT and is awaiting an update – so far only crickets chirping.
