"It's a pity they can't both lose"

Henry Kissinger, when asked about the Iran-Iraq war is quoted as saying “It's a pity they can't both lose". That about sums up my reaction when reading about  demonstration against the “Westboro Baptist church” by none other than the Ku Klux Kan.

I never thought that I’d find myself on the same side of a debate as the KKK, but the Westboro Baptists are truly vile. They are well known for protesting military funerals with hate-filled messages such as “Pray for more dead soldiers” and “God hates your prayers”. These messages are designed to upset and provoke a reaction, and they normally succeed.

JewsKilledJesusNot only are they against civilized debate, show zero respect, and re opposed to US values, they are also openly anti-Semitic. The text on the demonstrator’s TShirt says “JewsKilledJesus.com” (and no, I haven’t checked out the web site, and wouldn’t link to it).

If anti-Americanism is so closely linked to Anti-Semitism, it is no wonder that America can still be regarded as Israel’s closest friend, and the US people by-and-large support the Jewish State.

When two angry dogs fight it's best to just throw a fresh steak between 'em and clear out to a safe distance.

Westboro Baptists are the essence of dreck. No doubt on this count.

But so is KKK. A shootout between the two would be of benefit.
