An explosive video:

At the September 9, 2014 City Council meeting, President Susan Dabaja fought hard to block any discussion of a resolution to boycott all products imported from Israel. Why?

This was shortly after Israel massacred over 2100 Palestinians in Gaza, and destroyed over 100,000 people's homes.

"Protesters requesting council to boycott Israel, who also attended the Aug. 12 meeting, spoke just before 10 p.m. during the final minutes of the meeting. The protesters asked for a resolution by the city of Dearborn to boycott Israel. In July, over 2,200 people were killed, most of them Palestinians, during conflict between Israel and Hamas, a Palestinian militant group, according to the BBC. A ceasefire was reached between the two groups Aug. 26.

"Councilman Mark Shooshanian repeatedly interrupted the protesters to say that the issue was not a city matter...

"...The last moments of the meeting were filled with council members and protesters shouting over each other to be heard."
