...CODEPINK activist Rae Abileah was arrested at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington D.C. after heckling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the anti-war group.
The 28-year-old Jewish American woman was allegedly tackled by members of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) during Netanyahu's speech to Congress after she yelled, "stop Israeli war crimes."
Abileah was taken to the George Washington University Hospital, where she was being treating for neck and shoulder injuries.

Speaking from her hospital bed, Abileah said she was in "great pain"... www.rawstory.com...

So if you oppose the Patriot act, or uphold the constitution as Rand Paul did, you are considered a terrorist?
