    Separatists Rebuke U.S. On Israel, Immigration

    By Justin Blum
    Hundreds of neo-Nazis and white separatists marched on the U.S.
    Capitol yesterday to protest American support of Israel, chanting, "What do
    we want? Jews out! When do we want it? Now!" and trading hostile words
    with an equal number of counter-demonstrators.

    A variety of white supremacist groups -- including skinheads from
    Pennsylvania and separatists from West Virginia -- carried giant Nazi
    flags and frequently pumped their arms in the air yelling, "Sieg Heil" as
    they marched in hazy, humid weather from Union Station to the West Lawn
    of the Capitol. They complained about non-European immigration to the
    United States, shredded an Israeli flag and chanted slogans in support
    of Palestinian independence.

    The counter-demonstrators included students who said they had come to
    preach peace; militants chanting, "Death, death, death to the Nazis!";
    and anarchists dressed in black. They were joined by a variety of
    others, including Palestinians who said they had come to reject the white
    separatists' support for Palestinian independence.

    As many as 1,000 people demonstrated on each side, said Chief
    Terrance W. Gainer of the U.S. Capitol Police. No injuries were reported.

    Police said their tactic was to prevent the two groups from getting
    close enough to harm each other. They were separated by about 1,000
    police officers, metal barriers and plastic fencing. Some officers marched
    in riot gear with batons drawn while others were on horseback and
    motorcycles. Police helicopters buzzed overhead.

    Authorities said one man was arrested after he pried loose a large
    cobblestone from the sidewalk at Union Station and hurled it toward the
    white supremacists. The rock hit the pavement, missing the
    demonstrators. Felipe Benjamin Findley, 23, of Chicago was charged with disorderly
    conduct/missile throwing and was released after paying a $50 fine, said
    Lt. Phil Beck of the U.S. Park Police.

    The supremacists' chants were peppered with ethnic and racial slurs.
    Both sides shouted obscenities and at times tried to charge police
    lines to get closer to one another.

    As hundreds of white supremacists marched by, Jeff Skinner, 32, of
    Arlington thrust his middle finger into the air and chanted, "Nazis out!
    Nazis out!"

    "These [expletive] fascists! . . . I don't want that in Washington,"
    he said.

    The march from Union Station to the Capitol was led by Billy Roper,
    deputy membership coordinator of the National Alliance, which calls
    itself a "pro-white group." Roper, who had an American flag in the pocket
    of his black sport coat and carried a bullhorn, said he was protesting
    "the U.S. government's one-sided support for the terrorist government of

    He added: "The Israelis think they have the right to their own state.
    White Americans should have the same right."

    In May, Roper and other white supremacists rallied outside the
    Israeli Embassy in a similar protest of U.S. support of Israel. He described
    yesterday's rally as the largest gathering of "white nationalists" in
    Washington since World War II.

    Hundreds of people followed Roper, many with tattoos, banners and
    T-shirts echoing their chants.

    Paul Gellar, 42, of Lambertville, N.J., said he joined the protest
    because of concern about "the destiny of European Americans in the United

    "I feel we're being displaced by a non-white immigration policy," he
    said. "And our allegiance with Israel is a little too strong."

    Counter-demonstrators said they were disgusted by seeing the groups
    march to the Capitol.

    Preston Toombs, 50, of Little Rock was in Washington yesterday for
    his job as a software engineer. And when he heard about the
    demonstration, he stood in front of Union Station to show his opposition to the

    "I'm very angry and disappointed in these people," he said, motioning
    to the other side of a police line, where demonstrators filed past
    carrying a banner reading "White Power."

    Lisa Gomez, 25, of Gaithersburg said she was saddened to hear both
    sides calling for violence against one another. She said she wanted to
    promote tolerance and oppose the neo-Nazis.

    "As a person of color, I get pretty frightened," she said as the
    separatists rallied nearby. "For some reason, those people don't like me
    because of the way I was born."
