Martyrs in San Francisco

'Go back to Germany!'
"What was supposed to be a peaceful Bay Area rally protesting Palestinian terror got a little ugly when the shell of Egged bus 19 arrived at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Park. Organizers faced a counter-demonstration by Palestinian supporters, some of whom, according to the SF Chronicle, didn't share in the spirit of the gathering:

"Two, four, six, eight, we are martyrs, we can't wait,'' chanted the group, most
of whom wore kaffiyehs -- the cloth headdress closely associated with
Palestinian militants. Some drove around the park, their faces covered, waving
Palestinian flags.
