What we have against Jews and others is [sic] simple facts of history: that the Jews have been involved in the African holocaust and that the Zionists are causing problems, you know, for people of color around the world … The State of Israel. The Zionist entity there. It's a problem. It's a problem for our brothers and sisters in that particular area and it's causing problems all over the earth.With philosophers like Shabazz, who needs Harry Belafonte? Anyway, you gotta read it all over at Tom's blog. He's got loads of photos, Michelle Malkin was there (albeit as a reporter, not as a counterprotester), and the story even made it to The Washington Post. I took the liberty of posting the photo to the left since I think it's SO great - Americans defending the Danes 5,000 kloms away from their country (I hope Tom doesn't mind, he's the guy in a green parka holding the Danish flag)! How I wish I could have seen these counterdemonstrations in Europe! The only ones I know of here were the two-man strong manifestation in Paris by Erik Svane from No Pasaran! and a colleague, and the ahem, ahem, sixty-strong delegation the Vlaams Belang sent to the Danish Embassy in Brussels, see pic to the right:
To me, the money quote from Tom's story was this one:
Shabazz came very close to losing his temper with us. When we pulled "Kumbaya" from our repertoire, he started ranting about how lucky we were the police were present. He pointed his hand at one of us and cocked his hand like a pistol and dropped his thumb down like he was 'firing'.
And how this guy no doubt wished it was a real gun. We grant them freedom of speech. NEVER FORGET that if they could, they wouldn't grant it us.
