From a Salon blog
Back on Monday I blogged on a report from Jews on First about a Jewish family who had allegedly been forced to leave town after complaining about aggressive proselytising by the local Indian River School District in Delaware. One detail which was not included in that report, but which I picked up on via a commentator at Dispatches from the Culture Wars, was that an organisation named the “Stop the ACLU Coalition” (STACLU) had publicised the family’s home address and phone number, in order to “expose” them as "ACLU plaintiffs". STACLU's denunciation wasn't even accurate – the ACLU has given the family some support, but they are in fact being represented by a Wilmington law firm.
Jesus’ General has now contacted STACLU director Nedd Kareiva, to congratulate him for his part in what he calls the “Indian River Pogrom”:
And here’s part ofJesus’ General’s
Dear Mr. Kareiva,
Please allow me to be the first to thank you and the staff of Stop The ACLU for all you did to make the Indian River Pogrom such a resounding success. It isn't easy to run a Jewish family out of town in these politically correct times. Usually, they just hunker down, hiding behind antiquated interpretations of the Constitution and the good will of those who wrongly believe that non-Christians are entitled to all of the benefits of citizenship.
And here’s my email -
Dear Mr. Kareiva,UPDATE1 2:20 PM
I would like to congratulate you on your complete bitch slap of those pesky Jews. Ever since the end of Nazi Germany, God’s chosen people have become more and more uppity, demanding that American law be applied in America. The nerve of them!
With your help, the fine Christians of Seaford Delaware have successfully completed their jihad against a Jewish family, running their dirty kind out of town, for good.
You get 32 Christ points, for the publication of their address. If it wasn’t for you, the great Christian tradition of running Jews out of town would never have been continued.
Thank you so very much,
P.S. Your Christ points are in the mail

The information is public info on the Internet, Brian, they're fair game.
RE: If it wasn’t for you, the great Christian tradition of running Jews out of town would never have been continued.
Really? Perhaps you should check the site of www.jews4fairness.org and see how Christians and Jews are united.
I love how you guys have no substance to your arguments.
My response back -
Dear Mr. Karieva,
I'm sure it is public information. I'm sure your address and phone number are public information, as well (even if they aren’t "public", I'm quite sure I could pay 7.99 to make them public). Heck, I could publish a google map to your house, as well as a google earth picture of what your house looks like. I'd probably even be able to run a traffic ticker on my site, so that people know what roads to avoid when visiting your house.
But I don't.
Do you want to know why? Because I have integrity, something that you have apparently never heard of.
The question is why haven’t you paraded the success of running these people out of town? This was your goal (what else could your goal possibly have been)?
Instead of taking on the laws that you do not like, you resort to these children’s games. Instead of facing the fact that the law does not agree with your philosophy, you make attempts at running people out of town, who wish to uphold the law. Seriously, are you like 10?
I really don’t think he gets it. At all.**If you would like to write for this blog, please check out BTL’s Contributor Call
