Museum Protester Attacked and Beaten
"Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death."
David Willcox was among the protesters when the Holocaust Memorial Museum was dedicated. He waved a Palestinian flag. "I thought that somehow that day we had to make a presence for the Palestinians," he said. Later that day he was attacked and beaten.
Michael Schneider, self-identified leader of the Washington area's chapter of the Jewish Defense Organization, said that members of his group followed and beat Willcox and three other protesters. Police said they had no suspects in the beatings.
