MINISTER'S PROTEST AGAINST ISRAELI ASSAULT ON GAZA, DOWNTOWN NORFOLK, VA, DEC. 30, 2008

Even though most people know Norfolk, Virginia as the home of the largest American naval base in the world, NOB Norfolk, in this greater area known as Hampton Roads, which is inundated with other military bases, schools and commands as well, there is still great diversity of opinions and peoples, even within military ranks. On little notice today, Dec. 30, some thirty protesters began gathering at 4:30 PM in front of the City Hall complex at the corner of St Paul Blvd and City Hall Avenue to speak out against the Israeli assault on Gaza. They were still going strong at nightfall when I left around 6:00 PM. I interviewed four of them during the protest. The 3rd interview was with Reverend Pamela Anne Bro from Virginia Beach, also a minister in Virginia Beach.

I was interested today to see that the Iranian govt shut down a newspaper for publishing a letter by Iranian students that Hamas was using schools and hospitals in Gaza as shields.
In all likelihood, the Iranians will track down those students and either imprison them, or shoot them.
That doesn't happen here, but it does make one yearn just a little wistfully for a little fascism, though, doesn't it.

Speak for yourself there, slick. However, the Scarlett Pimpernel would not be so wistful.

I had to delete a Pimpernel comment for ad hominen attacks. You have to half way behave yourself to comment on this site. Talk about facts and debate issues, and don't engage in sophomoric insults.
