On certain "right-wing" websites like Freerepublic, there are some posters who are too cowardly to post their real names, like Alouette, SJackson, M.Espinola and others who will, at any possible opportunity, slander, defame and abuse Cindy Sheehan and what she is standing for. Many of them are professional, paid, disinformationalists who tag-team together to turnbuckle slam any poor, innocent soul who wanders past their field of view. They swarm like insane wasps anyone who dares question the rationale for the war.

These "Zealots for Zion" seem to have forgotten what the words "compassion" and "empathy" actually mean. For them there is no other way than the Zionist Highway, and if you dare to criticize anything about the current State of Israel, they will go for your throat quicker than a starving, rabid Rottweiller.

The peaceful protest of Cindy Sheehan and her supporters is stirring up a lot of debate, which is a good thing.

Beware of mad Freepers and their ilk !
