An open letter to the peace and antiwar movement : LA IMC

An open letter to the peace and antiwar movement has apeared on LA Indymedia. Wholly lacking in paragraphs, it makes this point:
Another year of war and occupation is about to pass and it is time for people to renew and increase their efforts for peace
Absolutely. It continues:
We must not be complacent do nothing as many Europeans did when the Nazis sent millions to the concentration camps. The Jews, the Roma, the Gays and Lesbians, and those who opposed fascism, war, and occupation perished in the camps while those who were complacent became complicit.
Quite right.

The only thing is, it's not actually aimed at Islamists, threatening to murder Jews or stone Homosexuals. They're fine. It's just another example of the so-called 'peace movement' representing anything but. Read it all and cringe.

Tim Blair offers this sage advice:
A tip for pro-Islam leftists: when next you feel the need to defend political Islam, just imagine you’re defending anti-gay, anti-abortion, Darwin-opposing southern US creationists. You may be surprised at the change in your thinking.
Sadly, the thinking (or total lack thereof) hasn't changed in some circles... From the original Indymedia article:
On Monday September 26, 2005 over 370 people were arrested in front of The White House protesting the war-occupation. On March 20, 2006 we must increase our numbers. We must send a clear message to our leaders that on March 20 it will not be business as usual at The Pentagon. On March 20th we will shut The War Machine down. We cannot turn away. We must respond, dissent, and resist. It is our duty.
Non-violently of course...
