  3. I am generally politically correct, but the arabs are ruining me. I propose that just as they celebrated the shooting of Rabbi Gluck, thousands should assemble at the kosel, right under the noses of the muslims on Har Habayis, to sing, dance and celebrate the killing of his terrorist attacker.

    Uh oh. Did they get permission first from Susan Rice? When will the Lurch give out a statement with the “both sides” garbage?
