"We Want Sarah. Shame On The Rally Organizer"

Blowback from the disinvitation of Palin from the anti-Iran rally.

UPDATE: Caroline Glick in The Jerusalem Post has an outstanding take on the pettiness of the Democratic Jews in America, and the meaning of their refusal to allow Governor Palin to speak. An excerpt:

It was a remarkable speech, prepared by a remarkable woman. But it was not heard. It was not heard because the Democratic Party and Jewish Democrats believe that their partisan interest in demonizing Palin and making Americans generally and American Jews in particular hate and fear her to secure their votes for Obama and his running-mate Sen. Joseph Biden in the November election is more important than allowing Palin to elevate the necessity of preventing a second Holocaust to the top of the US's national security agenda.

PS: I am no anti-Semite, so let me say this delicately: the politics of Jewish Americans, and the Joy Behar-ish in-your-face attitude with which those views are so often espoused, has done more to harm the reputation of Jews than anything that any 100 anti-Semites going off half-cocked about the Jooos! could ever do.

PPS: What is with the plethora of (relatively) new Jewish female writers who absolutely rock? Jennifer Rubin, Lisa Schiffren, Caroline Glick... It used to be just Mona Charen, but now there is an embarrassment of riches!
