On Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan suffered a great loss, and she has a right to speak her mind. However, it is disconcerting to see her being exploited by the anti-war crowd.

It is also disturbing that she has chosen to be associated with the Crawford Peace House. Solomonia details this group's anti-Semitism. Especially notable is the fact that the CPH has recently altered the home page of their website. (Original here; altered version here).

Solomonia concludes:
Cindy Sheehan's sacrifice is unfathomable, but as an adult, responsible for her own actions, her politics and public statements are open to examination because she has put them out there, and as I said at the beginning, she has tied her cart to a decrepit, decidedly Judenhass horse.
