GIVE ME A BREAK: In Orange County in 1987, three veterans of the Afghan Jihad against the Soviets visited Orange County. They were greeted at John Wayne Airport with this sign: "Welcome to Orange County, Wounded Afghan Mujahideen." It didn't make self-righteous bloggers or Jewish rabbis upset. Things and times have changed. And how!

Take Rabbi Cooper. Instead of speaking out against real anti-Semitism, he whines and bitches about the names of Muslim football teams in California.

The issue is these are words that are linked to real terrorists, real threats, real murders today," said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

"There shouldn't be young Americans chanting the name Mujahideen as American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq are put in danger and attacked daily," Cooper said. "As for Intifada, it has been a disaster for the Palestinians and the nearly 1,000 Israeli children and parents murdered by suicide bombers."
Cooper happily ignores the fact that Afghan and Iraqi Muslims risk their lives alongside those same American soldiers. The same goes for the thousand dead Israelis. At last count, there were about 700 of them, alongside more than 2,100 murdered Palestinians.

Give me a break! It's just some Muslim kids declaring themselves warriors in a nice game of football. Other kids named themselves after Snoop Dogg. Give it a rest, will ya? Nobody called themselves "Fighter of the Zionists," "Sheikh Yassin's Soldiers" or "al-Qaeda Supermartyrs."
