As I'm thumbing through the newspapers and browsing online to get ready for my radio show, with Fox News Channel on the TV in my office, I hear news anchor Lauren Green report that some Islamic activist group is "targeting" fellow radio host and friend Dennis Prager.  His offense?  He dared to say out loud what most Americans are thinking, that it's outrageous for incoming Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison to even consider using the Koran instead of a Bible when he takes his oath of office in January.

I'm intrigued by just what it is that this activist group means by "targeting" Dennis.  Just how, precisely, do they "target" a radio host?  During this war on terror, that's a pretty loaded word, eh?  My producer says that they want Dennis removed from the governing board of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Wow.  A group of Muslims wants Dennis Prager, a Jew, removed from his leadership post with a memorial to the millions of Jews slain during WWII because he believes an incoming U.S Congressman should refrain from swearing on the Koran as he begins his U.S. post as a congressman.

You gotta hand it to some of these groups:  they have some nerve.  After all, it takes a lot of gall for a Muslim to try and dictate to a Jewish organization who they should and shouldn't have on their governing board. 

Like the thousands of illegal immigrants waving Mexican flags in the streets of America this summer demanding "rights", there seems to be no shortage of "hutzpuh" on the part of some Muslim activists in our country.
