Inside a “protest”

NRO staff reporter James Lynch embedded himself in the New York City edition of the April 15 Kill the Jews rallies staged by A15 around the United States on Monday. I wrote about the rallies yesterday in “From sea to shining sea.” NRO has published Lynch’s story in “‘Israel Is a Terrorist State’: Scenes from New York City’s Disruptive Anti-Israel Rally.”

Lynch’s story reflects the hatreds coursing through the mob, especially including hatred of the Kill the Jews variety as well as hatred of the United States. Lynch concludes:

The disruption in Brooklyn was one of many anti-Israel protests that took place nationwide on Monday in metropolitan areas including San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, and San Antonio. Left-wing activist organization A15 Action was the primary organizing force behind the protests, being formed specifically for that purpose.

We need some serious reporting on the organizers and supporters of A15. Who are they? Where is the FBI? The organizers of these events constitute a fifth column and mean the United States no good. Their coordinated actions go well beyond lawful “protests.” They invite criminal prosecution. The curiosity of the mainstream media is nevertheless curiously limited — i.e., nonexistent.
