Christina Gonzalez of Fox News recently covered a protest outside an AIPAC fundraiser at the Universal Hilton. While Gonzalez labels the protestors, “peace activists,” she fails to mention that many of those featured in this report are actually members of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network. Danielle Berrin and I covered one of their other protests at the Israeli Consulate in January (to watch that video, click here - for Danielle’s story, click here).
My only question: don’t these checkpoints help keep the peace? I really think these “peace activists” are protesting on the wrong thing. Then again, I don’t think anyone would want to see a protest that simulates a rocket attack.
I also would have liked to have seen a stronger effort to hear an AIPAC or pro-Israel comment, whether it was in person or phoned in. But I guess not everyone can cover a protest like VideoJew.
