Tax dollars celebrating murderous invaders

I am all but speechless over the latest manifestation of San Francisco madness. Fortunately, Bookworm suffers no such malady, so I will let her do the work of explaining to you how public funds are being spent to celebrate Jew-killers on their way to do their evil, and why public authorities in San Francisco are just fine with it.

San Francisco's Mission District is, demographically, a primarily Hispanic district (about 50%), with the remainder of the population being White and Asian. Traditionally, it's been a mixture of immigrants (legal and illegal), poor, working-class, and artsy-funky. It's in the news today because the District used a $34,000 City-funded grant to paint a mural that shows joyful Palestinians overtaking Israel:

An emotional battle over a new mural in San Francisco's Mission district that depicts the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been squelched after the supporting organization had its funding stalled and agreed to alter the controversial image.

At issue is a large mural in a parking lot on the corner of 24th and Capp streets, designed by local artist Eric Norberg and painted during the summer by more than 200 Mission district community members with an overall theme of breaking down physical and social walls.

One panel of the 117-foot wide and 10-foot tall mural, depicting Palestinians breaking through a crack in the Israeli security barrier, angered members of San Francisco's Jewish community who said the image only portrays one side of the centuries-old conflict. The crack in the barrier is also shaped like Israel, and one Palestinian busting through wears a headscarf covering her face.

"The imagery took a radical position on a complex geopolitical issue that was out of touch with the international community, San Francisco and the overwhelming majority of Jews," said Abby Michelson Porth, associate director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, which raised the issue.

Bookworm nails the reason this outrage has been inflicted: encouraging the notion that The Great Satan (us) should be overrun from the south the way Palestinians and their Muslim allies want to overrun Israel.
