I believe the reason this ploy will fail is plain and simple. The government is not the problem in Israel and the US. The people are. The governments are just going as far as the people will let them. Who knows what it is going to take to snap the backbone straight again. It's broke right now. I am humbled to see his son is standing up for human rights however. Very nice to see a human in the news every once and awhile.

I think though, if people can rationalize emptying a magazine clip into the body of a 13-year old unarmed Palestinian girl, nothing will make them think twice.


Or even to think for the first time.

When it's their own 13-year old girls being loaded up with automatic rifles then maybe they'll be provided with a good, long opportunity to reflect.

I almost want to say unfortunately that won't happen for most supporters of Israel. But then I would be no better than they are, would I?

Basically you are saying, we can never elect an honest and moral politician that actually represents the people.

I agree, it looks dim.

But if all else fails, we can always take a lesson from Israel itself, and solve all our problems with assault rifles, right?

Hell, if we went to war with Israel today, I would actually enlist.

How is Israel committing genocide? They are not killing their own people. They have been fighting the Palestinians forever. That is not Israel vs Israel which is what genocide would require.

Are you serious? Genocide: gen·o·cide audio (jn-sd) KEY

NOUN:
The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group.

That implies one party on another, not one party on its self, which is suicide.

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.

Sorry, but Israel's aggressions and abuses of Palestinians is blatant genocide.

The only reason they are hell-bent on destroying Palestine and all the neighboring Muslim countries, is because they're Muslim.

I see we are sinking to new moral lows. Why not instead boycott the Palestinian authority? These are the moral geniuses who rejected a two state solution and then when given the Gaza strip, invited in Al Qaeda and started lobbing missiles at Israeli kindergartens.

The only real chance for peace is to deport all the Islamic troublemakers. Israel has been trying to forge a peace there for years and all they've gotten in return is a promise to destroy Israel and kill Jews.

If LA pulls this BS I think I will personally boycott LA.

Welcome to Maywood, Mexico
July 6th, 2010 . by TexasFred

I am pretty sure that most of my long time readers have seen this before, but for those that haven’t, it’s worth presenting again. From Human Events comes an article that should be an eye opener for ALL Americans!

Welcome to Maywood, Mexico

Boasting a population that is 97% Hispanic, more than half foreign born, and 40% illegal, the Los Angeles County, Calif., incorporated city of Maywood has achieved the Reconquista goal. It is now as lawless and chaotic as any place in Mexico. Maywood is a warning to every city and town in America.

The Maywood City Council announced this week that after years of radical policies, corruption and scandal, the city was broke and all city employees would be laid off and essential city services contracted out to neighboring cities or to L.A. County government.

How did this happen? Until recently, Maywood was the model for “brown power” politics.

Maywood was the first California city with an elected Hispanic City Council, one of the first “sanctuary” cities for illegal aliens, the first city to pass a resolution calling for a boycott of Arizona after that state passed a law to enforce federal immigration laws, the first California city to order its police department not to enforce state laws requiring drivers to have licenses to drive, the first American city to call on Congress to grant amnesty to all illegals.
Council meetings were conducted in Spanish. Maywood was the leader in the peaceful, democratic achievement of the La Raza goal to take power in the U.S.

The City of Maywood started out quite differently. Back after World War II, Maywood was a booming blue-collar town with good jobs, a multi-ethnic suburb of Los Angeles.

On the 25th anniversary in 1949 of Maywood’s incorporation as a city, the town celebrated with a beard-growing contest, a rodeo, and wrestling matches in City Park. Chrysler operated an assembly plant there until 1971.

But the early 1970s saw these industrial jobs in aerospace, auto and furniture manufacturing, and food processing evaporate under the pressure of higher taxes, increased local and state regulation, and the attraction of cheaper land and cheaper labor elsewhere.

The multi-ethnic Maywood of the post-war years was transformed in the ’80s and ’90s by wave after wave of Hispanic immigrants, many of them illegal.

In August 2006, a “Save Our State” anti-illegal immigration rally in Maywood drew hundreds of protesters—but a larger number of defenders of illegal immigration. The pro-illegal protesters carried signs which read “We are Indigenous ! The ONLY owners of this Continent!” and “Racist Pilgrims Go Home” and “All Europeans are Illegal Here.”

According to newspaper reports at the time, objectors to illegal aliens were subject to physical attacks. A 70-year-old man was “slashed,” a woman attacked, and cars vandalized. Pro-illegal demonstrators raised the Mexican flag at the U.S. Post Office.

The illegal population and their sympathizers became increasingly radicalized. Elections to the City Council saw “assimilationist” incumbent Hispanic council members ousted by La Raza supporting radical challengers.

For years, the Maywood City Council authorized police checkpoints to stop drunk driving. Drivers without licenses had their cars impounded. Illegals in California cannot get drivers licenses. By 2005, the number of such impounds were in the hundreds. A community campaign was launched forcing the City Council to suspend the checkpoints.

Cars were still being impounded whenever a police traffic-violation stop resulted in a driver without a license. Felipe Aguirre, a community activist with Comite Pro-Uno, an “immigration service center,” coordinated a new campaign against any impounds. He was elected in 2005 to the City Council. He is the mayor of Maywood today.

Aguirre and a new majority of the council dismantled the Traffic Department. Illegals were given overnight-parking permits and impounds stopped. You didn’t need a license to drive in Maywood. The Los Angeles Times wrote glowingly of this “progress” in a story entitled “Welcome to Maywood, Where Roads Open Up For Immigrants”.

The Maywood Police Department was restructured by the new council. A new chief and new officers were hired. Later it turned out that many of the new officers had previously been fired from other law enforcement agencies for a variety of infractions. The Maywood P.D. was known as the “Department of Second Chances.”

Among those hired was a former L.A. Sheriff’s deputy terminated for abusing jail inmates; a former LAPD officer fired for intimidating a witness; and an ex-Huntington Park officer charged with negligently discharging a handgun and driving drunk.

Even the L.A. Times called the Maywood Police Department a “haven for misfit cops.” Their story alleged that a veteran officer was extorting sex from relatives of a criminal fugitive; that another officer tried to run over the president of the Maywood Police Commission; and that another officer has impregnated a teenage police-explorer scout.

Charges of corruption and favoritism led to one recall of city council members and threats of more recalls are heard to this day.

Maywood is represented in the state Senate by Democrat “One Bill” Gil Cedillo. He earned the nickname by introducing every year in the state legislature a bill to grant drivers licenses to illegals. Maywood is represented in Congress by Democrat Lucille Roybal-Allard, a staunch advocate of amnesty for illegals.

Today, Maywood is broke. Its police department dismantled along with all other city departments and personnel. Only the city council remains and a city manager to manage the contracts with other agencies for city services in Maywood.

Maywood is the warning of what happens when illegal immigrants, resisting assimilation as Americans, bring with their growing numbers the corruption and the radical politics of their home countries. Add the radical home-grown anti-Americanism of Hispanic “leaders” and groups like La Raza and you get schools where learning is replaced with indoctrination, business and jobs replaced by welfare and gangs, and a poisonous stew of entitlement politics.

In too many American communities, this sad tale is all too familiar.

Welcome to Maywood, Mexico – HUMAN EVENTS

Make no mistake my friends, this is real, and it can happen in YOUR city too.

The U.S. government, the Obama administration in particular, are planning on doing nothing to stop the southwestern USA from being taken over by La Raza. Once parts of a state start to fall to this Reconquista by La Raza, the reclaiming of land that Mexicans believe to be theirs, it’s only a matter of time before it spreads to more and more cities and towns.

Just another bash Israel group that has nothing better to do since they are spoiled and wealthy. I say this ass clown should be banned from entering Israel and the U.S. should deport him.

Israel can give the Arabs in Israel true peace and even Jerusalem and the Arabs would still attack innocent Israelis whether they are Jews or Christians and even Arab Christians.

I can't understand what you are basing this on, if not simple racism, considering it's the Israelis that are currently committing the worst atrocities.

Los Angeles Launches Nation's First Israel Divestment Campaign


www.opednews.com

On April 1, 2010, in a no-holds-barred interview with the Christian Science Monitor, Israeli peacemaker Jonathan Ben Artzi, a PhD candidate at Brown University and nephew to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, made clear his belief that equality and social justice will prevail in Israel when the government and people of the United States adopt a no-tolerance stance toward Israel's abuse of Palestinians. Ben Artzi, whose family has lived in the region for nine generations, and who's seen a lifetime of Israel's abuse of Palestinians, declared:
