Out of Line

2,000 people braved the sweltering heat today in Times Square to protest the disengagement, and most of them acted admirably in expressing their views. Except of course, Boro Park's favorite son, State Assemblyman Dov Hikind. From the JPost:
Hikind, the Brooklyn politician who has been ubiquitous at such protests over the last several months and has organized several solidarity trips to Gaza, said he was outraged by the "insanity" of the Israeli government's blockade this week of protestors marching in support of Gaza's settlers.

"Somebody should ask Jimmy Carter to come to the Middle East to observe the behavior of the Israeli government," he said.

"I just hope one thing: that somebody doesn't start shooting somebody," Hikind added. "For Ariel Sharon to be responsible for Jews killing Jews, that would be in his record for all history."
What exactly did Hikind mean by that statement? Are we to take it as a threat? Are we to take it as prophecy? Shouldn't the mere suggestion of violence be off limits for a public official? At the very least, it's extremely irresponsible. At the most, one could make the case for incitement.

Dov Hikind the Al Sharpton of the Jews? As much as I dislike Al Shapton, I think he deserves a bit more credit than that.

After all, the reverend was a major party candidate for president of the united states. I dont think Hikind has such appeal.

Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
