“Such a perfect democracy constructs its own inconceivable foe, terrorism. Its wish is to be judged by its enemies rather than by its results. The story of terrorism is written by the state and it is therefore highly instructive. The spectators must certainly never know everything about terrorism, but they must always know enough to convince them that, compared with terrorism, everything else must be acceptable, or in any case more rational and democratic” (Guy Debord, Comments on the Society of the Spectacle).
Recently Governor Mitt Romney called for the wire tapping of mosques in Massachusetts.

The proponents, fanatics and soldiers of Zionism are active in Massachusetts but who is their to keep watch on them?
