New immigrants and old anti-semitism

From covering the immigration marches in LA:

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villagairosa, a Los Angeles Unified School District victim himself before he turned his life around, is already undertaking a bold moved to wrestle control of the district from a Jewish dominated school board and a White superintendent that are just fleecing the schools of much needed funds. School board Jews like Julie Korenstein, Marlene Canter, David Tokofsky, Jon Lauritzen and Mike Lansing are just enriching themselves and their cronies through crooked deals involving school construction projects, and contracts with so called consultants and vendors. The LAUSD is the second largest in the nation, next to New York, with a multi-billion dollar annual budget. It has an overwhelming Mexican and Latino student population. Jews have their own private schools so why are 5 Jews out of 7 school board members interested in governing the school district? The answer is all too obvious. La Voz de Aztlan has interviewed LAUSD teachers that complained that they have to buy, with their own money, pencils, paper and other school supplies that the district should provide. Something has to be done and Mayor Villaraigosa is on the right track

There are some picture like this one displaying immigrants "yearning to be free" here, thanks to John Derbyshire.

There have been student walkouts in Dallas, too. Whatever it is they think they're accomplishing is beyond me.

The fact that La Voz de Aztl?n and other such groups think their cause is helped by an anti-Israel stance (there is a tremendous amount of pro-Islam/pro-Palestinian literature on the page) also seems odd and fruitless at first.

On the other hand, they're both fighting for an invented state, making claims to land they think should be theirs, and seeking a scapegoat to avoid addressing their community's internal problems.
