Yes, it really happened: Jewish man arrested for asking a question.

Every time one turns on PBS television one is treated with old newsreels of Nazis arresting or harrassing Jews in 1930s Germany.

It is now happening here, in Kansas City of all places, But with an interesting twist. At a lecture given by neocon war hawk Dennis Ross, a young Jew, concerned about state-sponsored terrorism, asked an uncomfortable question.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The executive director the Kansas City library system says he is "outraged" that prosecutors continue to pursue charges against a man who was arrested after asking pointed questions during a library discussion about the Middle East peace process and an employee who tried to intervene.
Although the arrests occurred in May following a speech by author and diplomat Dennis Ross, the library system only recently went public about its opposition to charges, the Kansas City Star reported (
R. Crosby Kemper III, executive director of the city's library system, said "we're going to be living in a different kind of country" if people can be arrested for asking questions at a library. "If this kind of behavior is unacceptable to the police, then I guess we're going to have to shut the library down."
Issues arose after Ross finished speaking and took a question from Jeremy Rothe-Kushel concerning whether Jewish Americans like Rothe-Kushel should be concerned about actions by the U.S. and Israel that amount to "state-sponsored terrorism."
"When are we going to stand up and be ethical Jews and Americans?" Rothe-Kushel asked.
When Rothe-Kushel tried to ask another question, a private security guard grasped his arm, followed by an off-duty police officer, both employed by the Jewish Community Foundation. Rothe-Kushel then shouted, "Get your hands off of me right now!"

Yeah, they're preparing their exit in case anything goes wrong and their bid for world domination fails.
