No, that's not a question. It's an accusation.
Why do we find a man who could pass as an actor on The Seinfeld Show turning up alone to demonstrate at a Hizballah rally in Boston, where he was assaulted by Death Hippies and Muslims, and yet no one else came to his defence or to the defence of the nation? A short fat bald guy turned up alone to confront fascist Islam and the Red Nazis of our day, and not one of our friends and fellows in Boston did a thing to support him.
Muslims attack Jew at U.S. Islamic rally
Man says his life threatened at protest demonstrating support for Hezbollah

A Jewish activist was physically assaulted and his life was threatened during a planned "peaceful" rally held by the Muslim American Society in Boston, he told WorldNetDaily today.
"I have never been physically attacked before. I've had slurs thrown at me, got into heated debates, but what was amazing was that I was actually physically attacked," Seva Brodsky said. "Since they were the majority, and felt invincible, they threatened to kill me!"
Brodsky, who recently returned from nearly six months in Israel, captured some of the confrontation on video, available at the weblog Solomonia.com.
Brodsky reported to Solomonia he was bullied, pushed, shoved, cursed and abused after showing up in Boston where Muslims said they planned to rally to call for an end to the "indiscriminate" loss of life in Lebanon.
The event was held by the Boston branch of the Muslim American Society's Freedom Foundation, where spokesman Mahdi Bray [see below] told WorldNetDaily his group's events always are peaceful.
Brodsky said he took out and turned on a video camera as he approached the assembled group, estimated by Boston police at about 500.
"As I approached the crowd I was confronted," Brodsky wrote. He said the man "tried to harass and intimidate me" and blocked his camera. When he tried to lift his camera overhead, to shoot over the top of the man confronting him, Brodsky said the man raised a large white banner to create a new barrier.
Then the crowd started threatening and verbally abusing him, he said, and a "short and skinny" woman screamed hysterically and grabbed his arm and his camera.
"At this point, indignant and even outraged, realizing that I was entirely on my own and no help was forthcoming, I yanked the camera and a scuffle ensued," Brodsky said.
But one man then told Brodsky he would be hunted down and killed.
The event was a big step among Muslims, said Caline Jarudi, of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in Massachusetts, because Muslims frequently are concerned about vocalizing their views.
I don't know Seva Brodsky. Will I stand with him and face down a mob of Muslims and Death Hippies? You bet. So would any decent and normal man. So what happened that no one in Boston came out to stand with him? Why did Madhi Bray get a crowd and Brodsky got shit?
Who is Madhi Bray? Look to the ever and all-knowing Hugh Fitzgerald:
A convert to Islam, Mahdi Bray is not one of those, like Ibrahim Hooper, who has attained national prominence. He is a tireless worker at the local level, however, and in his dual presentation of self, or presentation of dual selves, most instructive. Soft-spoken and smiling and all sweet reason, and with a comfortably American voice, when addressing Infidels, he becomes something quite different for Muslim audiences, where he has been known to chant-and-rant, as in his call of support for Hamas before a crowd in Washington, or whipping up a crowd to show up at a courtroom to mock the proceedings which involved charging a Muslim with plotting to kill the American President. He is also careful, at the local level, to carry out all those carefully-calibrated and well-publicized deeds of supposed charity – to earn Infidel goodwill – that are described as being so useful in the conduct of Da'wa at Muslim sites.
Mahdi Bray bemoans the treatment of Al-Timimi, the Muslim leader in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., who was just found guilty of urging followers to fight the Americans in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
In October 2000 he appeared at a demonstration called in support of Hamas and Hizbullah: "In American Jihad, [Steve] Emerson notes that when Abdurrahman Alamoudi of the American Muslim Council, who is now serving a 23-year prison sentence for a terrorism financing conviction, encouraged the Muslim crowd at an October 2000 rally cosponsored by MPAC to declare their support of the jihad terror groups Hamas and Hizballah, "MPAC's Political Advisor, Mahdi Bray, stood directly behind Alamoudi and was seen jubilantly exclaiming his support for these two deadly terrorist organizations." This was just three weeks after Bray "coordinated and led a rally where approximately 2,000 people congregated in front of the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C." Emerson reports that "at one point during the rally, Mahdi Bray played the tambourine as one of the speakers sang, while the crowd repeated: 'Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is calling us, let's all go into jihad, and throw stones at the face of the Jews [sic].'
Some of the monsters we face are out-right dangerous, there's no question of that. We do not expect our own to walk unprepared into murder and mayhem on principle. At our latest rally against the Death Hippies here in Vancouver we expected stereet-fighting from the losers who gathered at the suburb beach, and thus we brought back-up, a normal procedure for any situation like that. In any situation like that, only a very few of the attendees will be interested in fighting, the majority being idiots who are there for social reasons, not to be bothered with; and thus, only a small number of men able to defend the protesters need lurk in the bushes for the sake of the rest. Against a group of one thousand one needs no more than a dozen men to back up the counter-demonstrators. It's not that hard to organise. And yet in Boston not even one other man joined Seva Brodsy. What do you make of that?
