Pro-Israel Group Asks For Separate DNC Protest Zones [View all]

In a preview of the protests expected at September's Democratic National Convention, a pro-Israel group this week asked Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to create separate protest zones for its supporters and adversaries.

The Florida-based Shalom International, which made a similar request to police in Tampa for the Republican convention, plans to protest Obama administration policies at both conventions.

Shalom president Bob Kunst asked police to create separate free-speech zones for "those who support Israel and the Holocaust Survivors and one for the Jews haters and Israel haters.

"We don't want to be drowned out by 15,000 crazies," Kunst told the Observer.
