Ball, a Carmel Republican who chairs the Veterans, Homeland Security, and Military Affairs Committee, released a photo of the Curious George stuffed animal with a paper Star of David stuck to its forehead and a piece of paper pinned to the monkey's chest that reads Final Destination: Auschwitz. The paper has a seven-digit number that appears to mock the ID numbers that were tattooed onto the arms of Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps.Ball, a Carmel Republican who chairs the Veterans, Homeland Security, and Military Affairs Committee, released a photo of the Curious George stuffed animal with a paper Star of David stuck to its forehead and a piece of paper pinned to the monkey's chest that reads Final Destination: Auschwitz.

Albany, N - A stuffed Curious George doll adorned with Star of David stickers, a hate-filled letter attributed to a radical Muslim blogger and a vial with an unknown substance were part of a suspicious package sent to state Sen. Greg Ball this afternoon, apparently in retaliation for his hearing last week that featured an anti-Islamic speaker.

What does he expect....when you give a platform to meshugaiim from one end of the spectrum, you elicit a response from the other extreme. We need to restore some type of civil dialogue in our political process.

I probably disagree with Sen. Ball on almost everything. But threatening any public official is beyond the pale. I hope that law enforcement authorities can find the perpetrator of this and that he/she is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Hope he brings this teddy to his next anti muslim hearing! that's exactly what the lady from egypt claimed! they are taught to hate from their diapers! what's this if not hate! BTW I love this, stating your mind, is being hateful, threatening someone for stating his mind, is loving. denying the holocaust (which is not as bad as denying mohammad) is just stating "the facts", while murdering a family, and everybody condoning it, partying, handing sweets, etc, is just simply caring. (cause they're suppressed, "occupied".)

I doubt this is any simple incident as I do not think that any person might readily just simply have this doll in their possesion or find it immediately in the store on the moment that they wanted to use it to perpetrate this crime. This is likely premeditated and waiting for a reason to transgress the bounds of decency. I bet that this was something that someone thought of many days or longer prior to this situation and that it was concocted well in advance. You didn't think that a moslem (presumably) just went out and bought a monkey doll on the spur or that a person who hates monkeys and other animals per se might have collected the said Doll just for their personal amusement. So that in effect makes me even sicker at the contemplation of this crime as it was not really the inflammatory statement that this senator influenced but rather Judaism as a whole which was the initial inception of the purpotrator's evil that came to light in this crime in my thoughts. But I didn't have to say that here did I? Just that I think that the crime is even worse than a flippant response to someone's disagreement and that the criminal is likely more than marginally dangerous in my thinking
