October 18, 2015 – NYC – Times Square
Pro-Israel Rally (Stop The Terror) VS NYC Students for Justice in “Palestine” (Terror is their game).
STOP THE TERROR : “Zero Tolerance 4 Terrorism”
As usual, media coverage of the pro-Israel rally vs the “Pali-Commie” protest was NIL. But, the cost to the city- the public purse- just so our rights to peacefully assemble are not infringed upon, must be a dear expense.
A ‘ton’ of police came out for these two events (mostly attending to the Lefties, of course) The police were everywhere, including the plain-clothes cops that you could easily spot. The motor cops, too.
With their LOUDDDD sound system in place, on time at 4 pm and supposedly for ONLY an hour (say I with a wink-wink) the Commie/Pali contingent was set-to-go. They claim to have organized their counter-protest in 2 or 3 days ((I have some swamp land for sale if you believe them)
Typical. On the street you could hear – chants chants chants- over and over and over- even the speeches are just decorated CHANTS. Mind-numbing repetition. No one need think. Just rinse and repeat. CHANT CHANT CHANTING away…
That was Part 1 of the counter protest. Next, Part 2:
Once they knew the Pro-Israel rally was starting – it started an hour late, around 6 pm,different groups from the pali-left hit-the-street.
Plan A – the JEWS against Israel lined the block in front of the pro-Israel barricades- un-bothered by the police. Holding up signs – in a line- and handing out flyers.At some point they had a policeman shepherding them (to nowhere) He just followed them back and forth in the one block space.
Street decorum requires that they always pretend to be confused. (from their “How to Protest 101” instruction) Constantly changing direction – so, at best, they keep the cops confused.
All done like they were simpletons. (NOT)
Plan B- the younger contingent starts walking AROUND the Pro Pally barricades. SHOUTING SHOUTING SHOUTTTING their chants. (Mostly “free free “palistine” mixed with “Occupation no More” and “Israel is a Racist State”) Once Plan B caused enough commotion, the police FINALLY closed off the sidewalks. Leaving Troop B to SCREAM at the stage from the cross walk at 47th street (and IN 47th street-blocking the cross town traffic.) They managed to pull that off for awhile, as well. And the police basically, WATCHED.

Part 2 “palis” and Jews say no continue
And now, Part 3 – the coup de grace – the SLOW CRAWL aka MARCH – They pulled this off in a 5 blk square, ending back at their pen on 7th avenue, after ‘walking’ VERRRY slowly.
Blocking south-bound traffic on 7th avenue by bunching up at Broadway (a short block away and going no where ‘fast’, so that the scrunched-up 20-somethings in front of the the pro-Israel rally could SCRREEEAM for 10-15 minutes.
The YOUNGER participants at the PRO Israel/Stop The Terror rally crammed themselves against their barricades facing north – in front of the ANTI- Israel crowd (facing south) and the shouting matches were ON.
I stood a few feet from – Caleb Maupin – who now reports for Iran’s Press TV. He was beaming with PRIDE. After all, chaos, is a requirement of any planned Commie insurgency. Meanwhile Raja Abdulhaq – working so pleasantly WITH the police – was wrangling any stray ‘palis’, nudging them nicely back to their side-of-the-street.

Part 2 -Dueling sides
Eventually, the slow-crawl picked up speed – so easily- once the screaming was exhausted- and marched (no need to crawl now) to 8th Ave, then 50th, and back to 7th Ave.
Even though a large block away on 50th that huge “Pali” flag and chants were quite visible and audible.
Once back to 7th Ave, the”Palis” STAYED on. Beaming- Chanting- Jumping around. Basically acting like the LUNATICS they are while insanely screaming their success. A protest that was supposed to last ONLY an hour, ending at 5 pm, went way past 7 pm.

EXTRA VIDEO from “The Watcher”
“Got a real gem of the Paleostinians chanting the Racist “The Jews Are Our Dogs” chant in plain view. Further Arabic Translations Welcome. This group of Palestinians chant (at 1:27) the Racist “Al Yahud Kelabna” (The Jews Are Our Dogs) chant in plain view.”
“Notice the brave girl waving the Israeli flag across the street from the anti-Israel protest. The cops tried briefly to get her to leave. No matter, Nancy Mansour thug-in charge, and her fellow thugs from Resistance is Existence – CHASED her from 7th Avenue.”
And Tom D made them observation I had, while watching the Provocateurs in action: “Please NOTE – these Agent Provocateurs had an unfettered use of the area around the Pro-Israel site. Police simply followed them around.”
Closing Thoughts: In this PR battle for the TRUTH, are minds changed? Can the tide be turned? Is confusion the winner? (The soc.commie.anarchist.’muslim/”pali” chums thrive on confusion) Cocky. Preening. (nauseating) While the good kids on the pro-Israel side.(G-d Bless them) Hang in there. With HOPE.
Thankful to see them. Proud. Positive. Honest. Confident. They need our support and encouragement for them to succeed. (Nuff said)
Since I covered the Third Intifada Rally more than a week ago, I came across this article : A Short History of leftist Violence.
For more than a year, there’s been sustained debate about whether the ongoing tensions and fits of violence in Israel, the West Bank, and in particular, Jerusalem, would fully culminate in a third Palestinian uprising.
In recent months, amid failed peace talks, continued fallout from the latest war in Gaza, politically motivated riots and car attacks, deadly rock-throwing and deadly responses to rock-throwing, stabbings, fatal arson and shootings, clashes at holy sites, the expansion of settlements and price-tag attacks, the rhetorical canceling of both previous peace deals, and the future peace process, the answer seems to increasingly be this: A Third Intifada is here and it doesn’t resemble the previous two.
Final thoughts from AFSI (American For A Safe Israel) – Will It Be the “Fire Next Time”?- You Are Needed at the Rallies!!
Show your support for Israel! At this time of great danger to Israel and her citizens we must take to the streets to show our support and show the world that we will not remain silent.
We cannot ignore the terror. TERROR WILL NOT DISAPPEAR IF WE TURN AWAY FROM IT. WE MUST CONFRONT IT. Here, in relative safety where the battlefield is public opinion, that means exposing and opposing it.
NUMBERS COUNT. WE CANNOT LEAVE THE STREETS TO OUR ENEMIES:
American Muslims for Palestine – NY
American Muslims for Palestine (NJ Chapter)
Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition
Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
International Action Center
Existence Is Resistance
Labor for Palestine
NYC Solidarity with Palestine
Muslim American Society – MAS NY
Jews for Palestinian Right of Return
Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee
International Socialist Organization
CUNY Students without borders
Palestinian youth movement – New York
Jewish Blood Is NOT CHEAP.
The truth must be seen as well as heard. With more and more rallies supporting Israel on-the-streets, perhaps the truth will manage to be seen AND heard by those willing to listen.
Putting an END to the Third Intifada is our goal.
WE CAN NOT REMAIN SILENT.
