800-Pound Gorilla, Wearing a Yarmulke
By Cassandra D
Nope, I am not talking about the state of Israel.
I want to bring up the recent allocation of federal Homeland Security funds to protect targets in the United States. As we have all heard, New York's share got cut, supposedly because of a lack of national monuments. Probably because of Congressional pork.
There is a very big issue that has been ignored in all of this: New York City is seen by everyone inside and outside of this country as the place with the greatest concentration and influence of Jews.
Remember the infamous Jesse Jackson "Hymietown" comment?
If the nutjobs in Hamas and similar terrorist organizations can list Rotary International as one of their arch enemies because of some mistaken idea that it is part of a big bad Zionist conspiracy, don't you think they might just have it in for New York City in particular in our country?
Sure, the St. Louis arch is a great national monument and deserves protection. But somehow I doubt that it gets the hatred flowing like targets in New York.
And that's something Americans apparently don't want to talk about.
