I saw a very similar display of kindergarden-age Palestinian children singing "Kill the Jews" and waving AK's in the air during a private intelligence briefing on a trip to Israel back in the early 90's. As you may recall, the second intifada began shortly thereafter.

CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are behind this travesty, just as they are behind the despicable Illhan Omar.

We need to urge President Trump to move quickly to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization and not rely on congress:

Todd Starnes: Philadelphia Muslim group's disturbing video illustrates clear and present danger to nation
The kids are lip-synching:

“We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation.”

“We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.”

“The blood of the martyrs is calling us. Paradise, men desire it. Revolutionaries, revolutionaries … Sword and text, oh free men.”

Philly implements a sugary drink tax.

Didn’t go as planned:

Layoffs in local bottling plants.

Layoffs in grocery stores as customers did their shopping outside of city limits with no drink tax.

Sales tax revenue declined more than sugary drink tax.

PA had a similar deal when we lived there. The prices at the official State liquor stores were very high compared to Maryland. People started driving across the border to make their purchases. PA dispatched State Police to sit at the border liquor stores and pull over cars with PA license plates that they saw go into those stores on reasonable suspicion of tax evasion. But "people I knew" had to periodically drive deep into MD for work and would return with contraband in their trunks. No RS for a PA car just driving on a MD highway. PA prices finally came in line with surrounding States.

This is clearly Trump's fault.

Some years ago, sociologists examined multiple large American cities, aiming to rank them for politeness vs. rudeness.

Who knows if their methodology was any good, but their stats ranked Philly as the rudest city in America.
YMMV, but remember, Philly is where Santa Claus was harassed by a stadium full of people throwing snowballs at him. Just sayin.....

17 teenagers attack 45 year old father of a lifeguard at the community pool. He is able to drive himself to the hospital.

Police are now soaking up the sun, guarding the pool.
