Occupy Boston/Hinderaker illustrated

Glenn Reynolds links to Ira Stoll’s understated post on the contingent from the Occupy Boston protest camp that marched to the building that houses the Israeli consulate in Boston and held a brief sit-in in the building’s lobby. Stoll quotes a Twitter feed noting that the chants included, “Hey hey, Ho ho! Israeli apartheid’s got to go!,” “Long live the intifada! Intifada intifada!,” “Not another nickel! Not another dime! No more money for Israel’s crimes!,” and “Viva viva Palestina!”

Glenn links to Stoll’s post as an update to John Hinderaker’s “Is Democrats’ demagoguery fueling anti-Semitism?” Although these Occupiers don’t appear to need much fuel, I’d say it’s more like Hinderaker illustated. Stoll himself observes “how readily a protest against bankers can elide into one against the Jewish state.”
