religion | Jun 2, 2010 | By Martin Barillas

On Memorial Day, May 31, a lone Jewish teenaged boy encountered a mob of protesters in the streets of Los Angeles at the Israeli consulate. Waving Palestinian flags and shouting chants denouncing Israel for interdicting a flotilla of ships supposedly carrying humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, members of the mob began shouting "Allahu Akbar" - Allah is the Greatest - in Arabic and menaced the boy who defiantly raised an Israeli flag in silent witness.

The mob appeared the threaten the Jewish teen who was then escorted away by L.A. police who then had to form a cordon to protect him from further menacing. He told reporters that Israeli soldiers involved in the interdiction of the flotilla on the high seas near Israel were merely defending their country, while he also wished to express support for his native country in a peaceful way.
