Rightwing Jewish protesters in East Jerusalem chant, “Butcher the Arabs” and “Death to Leftists.”

Ynet reports:

Dozens of right-wing activists marching through Jerusalem Wednesday were filmed chanting inflammatory messages and singing provocative songs in the capital, including “Muhammad is dead,” “May your village burn,” “Death to leftists,” and “Butcher the Arabs.”

The disturbing utterances were made during the traditional “Flag Dance” on the occasion of Jerusalem Day, which drew tens of thousands of Israelis to the capital to celebrate its unification following the 1967 Six-Day War.

    This bit must make all those sycophants in the U.S. Congress pant with exuberance. How delightful to be identified with such a display. Can the same action in the U.S. be far behind? Oh yes, it was in New York City, (New York City?) about that Muslim Center, but of course, that’s another matter, isn’t it?

    Let’s see – I’ve seen many Muslims say “Kill the Jew” and “Death to Israel” lately on video so I guess this is just Israelis expressing their displeasure with all of the Middle East harassing their small, little country. Notice there was NO violence by the Israelis.

    FROM PHILIP WEISS @ MONDOWEISS, REGARDING THIS VIDEO:

    What has Zionism done to Jewish identity? I ask that question a million times a day, but this video of Jerusalem day, June 1, is particularly poignant.
    Celebrating the reunion of Jerusalem following the ’67 War, the demonstration is reminiscent of Freud’s father telling him about being attacked during the Hep-hep pogroms in 1819. Look at all these boys in their white shirts. Hear them shouting Muhammad is Dead! And spitting at a Palestinian compound. Giving the finger. And “butcher the Arabs… death to Arabs… May your village burn…” I’m trusting the translations. How deep in any people is the spirit of ethnic cleansing– and what licenses that spirit? How intractable is this conflict, and what can Americans be doing to wind these screwballs down?

    P.S. For these “white shirts” of the “Dati Leumi”, Zionism has essentially become a very regressive cult.
    It is therefore quite fitting that Glenn Beck will be holding his “Restoring Courage” rally in Jerusalem this August. As the old idiom goes, “birds of a feather flock together”!
    P.P.S. Only in Israel would a new luxury high-rise residence building proudly bear the name “White City”! It is so reminiscent of South Africa, circa 1980.
