    what about over 1 million mooslime terrorists spawning in ny?

    Where are all the posters who were crying anti Semitism yesterday and reckoning in another Holocaust? Where is Dov Hikind? Someone should investigate him.

    This is the second time and less than a week that these people are up to their old tricks of vandalizing their own property and crying hate crime. First, there was the burnt cars insurance scam and now this.

    How come when things like this happen, it makes the front page headline or the top story on the news, but when the truth comes out, the story is usually hidden amongst other stories?
