Traffic came to halt this morning after more than 200 pro-Palestinian demonstrators yelped and hollered outside the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco. Here's a scene from the action at Third and Market streets. Exciting stuff.

Many protesters, according to reports, carried Palestinian flags, fetishistically sported checkered Palestinian head scarves, and held anti-war signs like, "End the massacre" (smart), "Gaza = Warsaw Ghetto" (retarded), and other damning signage.
