  1. If you read the charges..you will note very clearly that "hate crime" is not included. And because the AADL does not stand a chance of getting donations from the small Chassidic community here, rest assured this won't even show up on their radar.

  2. isn't it "special" that these Hispanice who may be illegals are yelling at Jews to back somewhere? These toad-ugly pendejos need a visit from the JDL..the ones who train to fight back. Let these pieces of roadkill go back to Costa Rica or Mexico and rot.

  3. This is what we see in California nearly on a daily basis. These "thugs" are most likely illegals that were allowed to roam freely in the US. Just watch how we in California have to deal with losing our rights as citizens so that these illegals – which is a crime – will have more rights and be able to utilize our education institutions freely while our legal children will have to pay through the nose. Stop the appeasement.
