Worthy of the AP

The StarTribune picks up the AP story of the Israeli flag scuffle. The article adds this piece of information:

The display featured Israel's flag, a list of terrorism victims in Israel and literature prepared and paid for by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

Nathan Church, vice president for student life and development, said Karasik became upset because she felt the use of the flag sent the message that the College Republicans had the support of the Israeli government and the Israeli people.
It does now appear that part of the problem was that they were Republicans. And confirms the title of my first post on the topic.

UPDATE: Jack just emailed that he heard the end of the story on KMSP, a Twin Cities TV station.

UPDATE 2: Also picked up by RightWingNews, who ties together the stories of the Israeli flag and the earlier anti-Semitism settlement. (Scroll up from these two links for more if you wish.)
