That’s basically what ANSWER spokesman Emmanuel Lopez said when asked about cries to send Jews back to the oven at a Fort Lauderdale protest he planned. The people yelling that don’t represent ANSWER, and we’re kind of anti-Semitic… but it’s all the fault of the dirty, dirty Jews!!
But as the protest continued and crowds grew, one woman in a hijab began to shout curses and slurs that shocked Jewish activists in the city, which has a sizable Jewish population.
“Go back to the oven,” she shouted, calling for the counter-protesters to die in the manner that the Nazis used to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust.
“You need a big oven, that’s what you need,” she yelled.
… The protest organizers, asked to comment on the woman’s overt call for Jewish extermination, said she was “insensitive” but refused to condemn her statement.
“She does not represent the opinions of the vast majority of people who were there,” said Emmanuel Lopez, who helped plan the event, one of many sponsored nationwide on Dec. 30 by the ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism ) Coalition.
Lopez, a state coordinator for ANSWER, admitted there is a problem with anti-Semitism within his organization’s ranks. But then he went on to call the supporters of Israel across the street “barbaric, racist” Zionist terrorists.
“Zionism in general is a barbaric, racist movement that really is the cause of the situation in the entire Middle East,” Lopez said.
So, I guess Israel deserves all the terrorism and rocket fire and civilian casualties they’ve been putting up with for years now? Perhaps if they agreed to just let themselves cease to exist, liberals would be happy. After all, why on Earth should the Israelis be allowed to defend themselves?? They brought all of this on themselves because they had the gall to expect to be allowed to live peacefully, and now, NOW, they expect to be able to fight back?! It’s the EEEEEEEEVIL Zionist regime!!!!1!!!11!!!!!1!1!!
Oh, but remember, don’t call them anti-Semitic. Liberals are tolerant and they love everybody. Just because they want to see Israel nuked into oblivion doesn’t mean they don’t accept the Jews.
