There is little difference between the terrorists and those who support them

Anti-Israel, pro-jihadist protests in New York and Detroit.

With the massive anti-border protests of the past year, thousands of enemies of the Constitution of the United States assemble in public, in front of the entire world, clearly advocating the breaking of American law, and nothing happens. Now thousands more assemble to support terrorists.

What does it take for our government to do anything to stop those who would harm America?

From "We know that the president is being bought by the Zionist lobby.":
Carrying banners saying "Stop Israeli Terrorism" and chanting antiwar slogans, some 10,000 people rallied in the center of metro Detroit's Arab-American community in Dearborn on Tuesday, demanding that the U.S. government put pressure on Israel to halt attacks in Lebanon.
Although the protesters were peaceful, their message was strong, representing a profound difference of opinion between two of metro Detroit's most vital communities.
Arab-American marchers carried signs saying "Down, down Israel" and chanted, "One, two, three, four. Stop the bombing. Stop the war."

Saying that Israel is killing children and bombing innocent citizens, one of the speakers, Osama Siblani of the Congress of Arab-American Organizations, said, "This is terror." The crowd cheered loudly in response. "They are cowards."
"We know that the president is being bought by the Zionist lobby. We know that the (U.S.) Congress is being bought by the Zionist lobby. ... But we know that the American people are a great people," he said.
Some of those views concern many in the Jewish communities of metro Detroit.
"No one wanted this war," said Wendy Wagenheim, president of the Jewish Community Council, a coalition of about 200 Jewish groups in Michigan. "And certainly, emotions are running very high at this point. But there is nothing that will be served by importing the tensions apparently in the Middle East to metropolitan Detroit.
