Think about your statement.

Does being a Muslim mean that you are offended by the existence of Israel?

What of this photo is an offense to Islam?

It's not about an offense to Islam in general - it's about a mayor not appropriately representing his constituents.

If he had gone to a pro-Hezbollah rally (and if they happen in Halifax, I'm sure they're going on in LA), and skipped an Israeli rally, wouldn't Jewish folks in LA have the right to be upset?

The man is allowed to hold his own personal views. I think what people are up in arms about is the fact that he is an elected representative of the people, and he is not appropriately representing those people.

The mayor of a US city does not represent constituents in international politics.

Again, is pro-Hezbollah really the opposite of pro-Israel? If so, it would be clear that you could pick one side over the other.
