Ft. Lauderdale, 12/30/08

Curtsy to Powerline for this video, which ought to raise some questions for us.

The same questions occurred to me upon seeing the "Death to Juice" sign in New York City. Scott asks,
Is there anybody in his right mind who thinks that the United States should keep its doors open to Hamas supporters of the kind depicted in this video?
That's one line of questioning, but perhaps that ship has sailed? The imam depicted here seems to be a black American convert, and I heard a lot of accents that seemed American.

Is this different in kind from the anti-prop-8 demonstrations in California? (Note the specific physical parallels between the two videos --hateful slogans, physical threats, pushing cars, resisting cops.) In other words, what is our specific objection? And what is the proper response?
