Mayor Villaraigosa supports Israeli bombing of Lebanon

by Mayor Warhead Monday, Jul. 17, 2006 at 2:31 PM

At a pro-Israel rally organized by L.A.'s Simon Wiesenthal Center, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa made clear his support for the Israeli bombings of Gaza and Lebanon (Photo: AFP/Hassan Ammar - What if this was your mother?

The L.A. Simon Wiesenthal Center held a pro-Israel rally on Thursday, July 13th, ( ) to show solidarity with Israeli military attacks against the Palestinian people and the nation of Lebanon. At the 5 p.m. rally attended by around 1,200 supporters of Israel, Wiesenthal Center officials welcomed none other than Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who made it perfectly clear that he SUPPORTS the military actions now being carried out by the right-wing government of Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert. Speaking of the Lebanese Hezbollah guerillas who've fired missiles at Israel, Villaraigosa said, "What can you say about those who fire missiles at innocent civilians... at children." Yes, what words can possibly be used to strongly condemn the targeting and slaughter of innocent civilians! But perhaps Mayor Villaraigosa should look closely at the pictures on this page, it might then occur to him that Arab civilians, women and children, are also bleeding and dying - and their lives are just as precious.
