Exploiting the people of Ferguson for ulterior political motives.

Bassam Masri Arrest

We previously highlighted the role of anti-Israel activists in exploiting and fomenting trouble in Ferguson, Missouri as a Grand Jury decision is awaited whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, Intifada Missouri – Anti-Israel activists may push Ferguson over the edge:

As much tension as there is, an underreported story is the active role of “pro-Palestinian” activists who have exploited the Ferguson riots and tension this summer and fall to push their anti-Israel agenda. That anti-Israeli agenda, which involves encouraging confrontation with police in solidarity with Palestinians, is helping provide the accelerant to an already volatile situation….

It also has involved a propaganda campaign to blame Israel for the killing of Brown because a former St.Louis County police chief three years ago attended a one-week anti-terrorism program in Israel. Presumably some Ferguson officers also have attended various training sessions routinely given in the U.S. and elsewhere to police departments, but the one-week training in Israel by someone who wasn’t even on the job when Brown was shot was enough for the usual suspects to try to blame Israel for everything that happens in Ferguson….

Israel has nothing to do with whatever did or did not happen in Ferguson.

But anti-Israel activists rarely care about the truth, it’s all propaganda for the cause.

But this propaganda, and this agitation, actively is pushing for a confrontation between police and protesters in Ferguson, in which people are likely to get hurt. And the activists like Masri will be there to take the viral videos and photos.

And that’s the point. Just as Palestinian and supportive Western leftist activists encourage children to throw rocks at Israeli police so they can get the video of the police arresting a child, so too this is all about the photo- and video-ops.

And it may push Ferguson over the edge.

One of the featured activists was Bassem Masri, someone active in the #Palestine2Ferguson movement to portray the Ferguson issues as somehow to be blamed on Israel.

Imagine the backlash if the GOP was responsible for these quotes

What if a Republican said this

Double standards are an unfortunate reality of the current media construct. Democratic flubs and gaffes seldom make headlines in mainstream outlets unless the offense is so egregious it can no longer be ignored. Of course their Republican betters aren’t afforded the same white washing.

This past week was a particularly inarticulate week for the Democrats fecklessly attempting to navigate their way through the amnesty cluster.

Imagine for a moment the wailing and gnashing of teeth if a Republican uttered any of the following.

So we present to you, What if a Republican said __________?

1. Just call me Emperor. Also, kiss my ring.

Obama being called emperor is a complement

Who could have guessed this would happen?

Amnesty Obama

Remember those “intended immigration consequences” I was talking about yesterday?

The word is out.

Brendan Bordelon of National Review captured this exchange on CNN:

Illegal Immigrant Tells CNN She Was Inspired to Cross Border by Obama Amnesty

“Did the possibility of immigration reform inspire you to come now?” CNN’s Alina Machado asked the Central American migrant waiting for a bus ticket on Thursday.

“Yes, that’s right,” the woman said. “That inspired us.”

“Now?” the reporter pressed.

“Yes, now,” the woman replied.

Watch the video:

Media responses to Obama’s plan have been mixed but I like this piece by David Harsanyi of The Federalist:
