Ugri, Thanks for posting this. If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I would not believe it. Perhaps the tide is turning finally.

I say this with a great deal of discomfort as a Jew, since it seems to imply that I am applauding some sort of targetting. we do have deep consciences. But I remind myself that there is no comparison between what the victimized Jews endured, having done no harm nor inflicted their customs upon society, while the rancor against Muslims is based upon facts and realities that the world has bent over backwards to try to accept, given that very recent history. This is a complex subject, but I am still glad to see that there is finally a reaction.
