International Day of “al-Quds” NYC 2018 (pics & vids)

Friday, June 8th, 2018 . 4 pm. As usual, “The International Day of al-Quds” demonstrators gathered in Times Square to rally against Israel;  supported, nurtured and incited by the Marxist insurgents who led the way.”

 Later, showing solidarity with the  “Palestinians” “Great March of Return” in the Gaza Strip, mock coffins were carried by the “Palis”, Muslims, Neturei Karta —- capos—and Marxist leaders as they marched to the consulate general of Israel. (the JDL reported that, in NYC,  it was a LAME march)

The NYC protest was just a lot of noise against the Great Satan (U.S.)and,  of course, the Little Satan (Israel), met fortuitously by an equally noisy counter- protest hosted by the New JDL-NY

Whistles. LOTS of Whistles filled the air while the over-amplified al-Quds Day protest attempted to keep the focus on their LIES.

Though smaller in numbers, the New JDL counter-protest in support of Israel successfully mocked, derided and obscured the lies and hate spewed by the Marxists dominating the microphone.

The New JDL troops challenged the LIES and hate!

“On June 8th, Islamists will march from Times Square to the Israeli Consulate, calling for intifada. They will carry coffins calling terrorists victims of murder by the hands of the IDF. Pure lies and anti-Semitism.

We can not let anti-Semitism, in any form, go unanswered. Am Yisrael Chai!”

Later I found more info on the Gazan terrorists who sent helium balloons with burning charcoal over the border of Israel. MURDER is what the “Palis’ seem to do best.

[source for video at @divnews1 : Face Book]

A call to action from the NEW JDL-NY to stand up for Israel, to stand against anti-Semitism, suggested they bring Israeli flags, signs supporting the IDF, signs condemning the daily terrorist attacks against Israel and WHISTLES to drown out the anti-Zionist lies.

Yep, whistles. Loads of whistles. The JDL made a powerful impression on the “Palis” and Marxists. Causing the female “Pali” trying to lead some chants- against the whistles to scream , ” I can’t hear you.” [small pleasures) As the JDL taunted them with “Traitors ,Traitors”

We partied on Sunday (at the annual Israel Day Parade) now it’s time to defend. Am Y’israel Chai!

VIDEO of Marxist, anti-Zionist SPEAKERS onThe International Day of al-Quds” when Muslim demonstrators rallied against Israel; supported, nurtured and incited by the usual Marxist insurgents.

Bill Doares,Workers World Party.“Built on lies, blood and hate, Israel is a racist State”. We are here…because once again, “Palestinians: are being shot down in cold blood, shot down down for trying to exercise the most basic human rights in the world: the RIGHT to Go Home, the right to return to their own land; shot down by the hate-filled white supremacist soldiers in Israel. These hate-filled murderers are paid by OUR tax dollars.(1:26 …) the endless flow of arms , from M-16 rifles to F-16 Jag jet-fighters (…) which are being supplied-for free-to the racist murderous enemy called Israel. (2:14) so the struggle of the “Palestinian” people to return home is part of the struggle of the oppressed people around the world for justice. Israel is an apartheid State. It is part of global system of apartheid that keeps the world divided with the rich and poor (…) and the struggle of the people of “Palestine” is the heart of the struggle for freedom and justice around the world, which is why anybody, oppressed people and working class people every where need to stand with “Palestine”. Because, an end to Israel means an END to the U.S. military industrial complex and the Warfare State that lives off our backs and steals from our communities. “Palestine” will be free; They can kill, they can lie, “Palestine” will never die. (3:12 the New JDL responds with LIARS, Liars, Liars.) Israel will soon go the way of the Third Reich and the Confederate States of America and Rhodesia and all the other racist enemies thrown in the dust-bin of history. Long Live ‘Palestine’ .”

From Samidoun.net: “On International Day of Quds, people of conscience gather to express solidarity with all the oppressed human beings of the world and particularly the innocent civilians of Palestine who are victimized by the oppressive and racist Zionist regime.”

Black speaker:…black people know coffins. We know Emmet Till, we know Tamira Rice, we know Eric Garner, we know Nat Turner, we know Martin Luther King, we know Malcolm X. So, we’re very familiar with coffins ’cause coffins are part of our existence in… the Western Hemisphere.(…) that’s why it is important that the black people passing by know that we support the struggle of ‘Palestine”, because the struggle of “Palestine” is a struggle against institutional racism … every blow against institutional racism is a blow for our freedom HERE as well. Free Free “Palestine”. (00:59 a short moment with the New JDL) – he continues- “... so bear in mind, when people talk about the right to vote, and gutting the Voting Rights Act, and all those Civil Rights Laws that came out of our struggle to be free AND are being TAKEN BACK, think upon that when you think about U.S. citizenship. “Palestine” MUST be FREE.” [1:55]

Algerian female speaker (thick accent) 2:11 “Tell me now, are we terrorists? [crowd NO] Are we gonna stop marchin’? Are we gonna stop protestin’? (…) we say that U.S. imperialists are the number 1 terrorists. … we will continue to fighting against political oppression, whether (by) NYPD, la Migra, ICE,which separates children from their families, FBI (or DHS). We won’t stop protesting and we call on you to join us. (She ends with a popular Algerian chant)

Samidoun continues: “We invite all peace loving people to voice their opposition to the unjust and illegal occupation of the great Al-Aqsa Mosque and the usurpation of the Holy Land by the Zionist regime. In addition, we will also protest the current Saudi aggression in Yemen.”

Joe Catron (activist/reporter):”… 1918, at the time, Great Britain and the world’s other (?) imperialist powers, in collusion with the Zionist movement, were already determined to plant their own colonial outpost in the ancient Land of Palestine. Over the ensuing decades it became clear that nothing less than wiping Palestine off the map (…) Through the strength of its people and the ferocity of its struggle, Palestine survived. In the face of imperialism and occupation, followed by (?) colonialism, ethnic cleansing and fragmentation, their popular mobilizations, strikes, guerilla warfares, bombings, hijackings shattered the hopes of the imperialist Zionists ….. expulsions of the “Palestinian National movement”…. the unbelievable fact that it’s still here – fighting- despite the ferocity of its enemies and the betrayal of its allies. (…) despite oppression, exclusion, marginalization and siege the masses of our people continue to fight for the return to their land …to their homes … from which they were forcibly expelled. (… referring to the deal of the century at Camp David… ) The Great March of Return is the “Palestinians” unmistakable response. The children of the revolutionary classes, workers and farmers, have made perfectly clear that they will never allow their holy sites, their land, their prisoners, their right of return to be bargained or sold.”

Larry Holmes, International Action Center. “Comrades. Don’t pay too much attention to those silly whistles (referring to New JDL) People all over the world, of different races, different religions and different nationalities … support the struggle of the “Palestinian” people. The people who want to support them (refers again to New JDL) are racists and Zionists. They’re colonialists. They’re occupiers and imperialists. And the way the world is going, they’re days. are. numbered! (cheers) We must do more, Comrades. Especially here in what we used to call the Belly of the Beast. Israel could not exist, very long, without U.S. economic and military support. Everybody knows that. Everybody knows that the hundreds of billions of dollars in economic and military aide that the Zionists get all the time…. But, let’s make it more personal. That Israeli sniper that is shooting the borders … it is 99% that he shot … with an M16. That is an assault rifle made for the United States Army, right here. And it is the most common weapon carried by the Israeli(s)… Those helicopters. Those gun-ship helicopters that destroy people, kill children, tear homes and hospitals apart : Made in the U.S.A. (most of them, anyway). So, I just wanta make a suggestion, before I leave. (Holmes now mentions the North Korea meeting, that hadn’t happened yet)

“You know our Comrade, Kim Jong-un the head of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea … sometimes referred to as North Korea. You all know who I’m talkin’ about, right? He’s got a meeting with Donald Trump, in a couple of days. And it was a struggle of the Korean people that forced that meeting. Don’t be fooled. And we know that Comrade Kim Jong-un, he has a lot of business, along with defending his people at that meeting. But if he can, just for a minute … if it’s possible…divert from the agenda and say,”Trump. President Trump. (whatever) Racist Trump. I have a message from the “Palestinian” people, and the people of the world: Stop Giving Israel weapons to murder our people.” (cheers) Free Free ‘Palestine’

While the Marxists and the Muslims continue to march hand in hand against Israel and Jews, and AMERICA, the media accepts, in lock-step, their outrageous lies as FACT. What a sad world we live in.

IFTAR in the Streets, Linda Sarsour & NYPD to New JDL-NY: “You make a sound, you will be removed”

“You make a sound and we will remove you from the park”, NYPD Community Affairs liaison to New JDL-NY. ** scroll down for more on that outrageous muzzling**

IFTAR 2018 in-the-Streets.  6:30 pm Foley Square.

We’re standing in solidarity with communities across the country hosting #iftarinthestreets! Muslims and allies will gather and break fast in support for immigrant communities who are under attack … outside ICE headquarters, at Foley Square …  #iftarinthestreets for Immigrant Justice!” [Face Book]

Ramadan, when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset to please Allah, is considered their holiest month. Many non-Muslims are often invited to fast and even pray with their Muslim friends and also to share the IFTAR dinner.

Ramadan. Iftar. A dawah opportunity on the Road to One World Under Islam, the Umma.

Non-Muslims, like the Leftist Jews from JFREJ (Jews For Racial and Economic Justice) and JVP (Jewish Voice For Peace) were “free to participate in Ramadan” and that’s just what they were doing in Foley Square. Proudly.

This representative from JFREJ, decided to ask questions of the New JDL-NY.

… looking for “Common Ground” …

The New JDL-NY listened politely, but gave no quarter to the ignorance of these misguided leftist Jews, to the JFREJ and JVP who were dedicated to showing the world how to live in peace with their Muslim Sisters and Brothers.

These do-gooder non-Muslims encourage others “…. to be polite to someone who is fasting for Ramadan … greet them with Ramadan Mubarak or Ramadan Kareem, which means ‘Have a Blessed or Generous Ramadan’.” [Huff Po]

BUT, is this special time of year really genuinely welcoming the kafir?

Geller Report and Jihad Watch:

“Ramadan is quintessentially the month of jihad …. a month of holy war and death for Allah, a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.

In contrast, President Trump issued (sadly) a statement claiming that “Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life.”

So which is it? Does Ramadan remind us of  “the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life,” or is Ramadan “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers”?

Saw Raja Abdulhaq [Abulhaq is an active member of Al-Awda, a radical anti-Israel website that rallies for the “Right of Return,” otherwise known as the “One State Solution“].  City Councilman Brad Lander and Linda Sarsour, darling of CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, and MpowerChange. Peaceful?

… it would be dangerous, suicidal folly for Infidels to pretend that Ramadan is not the month of jihad …. as our Ramadan willful blindness continues, more Infidels will die. (LINK BELGIUM]

** The NYPD Community Affairs officer was apparently in the pocket of the IFTAR organizers. In the name of “peace”, and at the behest of the IFTAR event, he denied Freedom of Speech to the JDL protestors.


His reasoning? The “Iftarists” had the sound permit [which only means the opposition – JDL- cannot be amplified, NOT that they can not be heard.]

But, today he created a new rule. Just for the JDL. The Community Affairs Officer warned the New JDL protestors not to make a sound while Sarsour was speaking (on mic) OR they would be removed from this public park.

See video of Sarsour, a supposed champion of women’s rights, as she inspired those present with her fiery Ramadan thoughts. (Ramadan is her FAVORITE time of year- Jihad anyone?)

Sarsour quotes: “This is the Blessed month of Ramadan, some of our friends have fasted in solidarity with us,  a lot of our Christian and Jewish friends …. we got allies and friends and solidarity…. times we’ve shared in the movement.  I wanta give a shout out to our friends at FRJEJ. Before it was COOL to stand with the Muslims, these Jewish groups were standing with the Muslims .We are so great ful for you … and we will show up for you any time that you need us. We are all in this together. We are going to FIGHT this together. Because the opposition doesn’t like any of you here. They don’t like women, they don’t like Muslims, they don’t like Jews, they don’t like immigrants, they don’t like refugees, they don’t like black people, they don’t like LGBTQ people. We’re all in the same boat  together. If our opposition is treating us like we’re part of one movement … we gotta start acting like ONE movement. We thank you for your continued solidarity on the issues … impacting Muslims and ALL marginalized communities in these United States of America.”(cheers/applause)

As for the muzzling of the NEW JDL-NY, such actions are never imposed on the Muslim/Leftist protestors.

See more in video and follow link to the Pamela Geller CUNY protest opposing Sarsour as the Key Note Speaker for CUNY’s 2017 grads on May 25, 2017:

Something was very rotten in the City of New York that day (and every day really). Respectful silence was not on the agenda. The NOISE makers persisted, unabated, overwhelming the amplified sound. The NYPD just watched allowing the Leftards to create a hell of a NOISE.

… there’s no free speech to the right. Only the left. The only controversial speech the left believes in protecting is its own speech. [DGreenfield]

Sadly, the Tommy Robinson arrest in the UK  is a far more ominous example of free speech rights lost but this day in Foley Sq. was not a sign of progress. Anything but. We have been warned.

Video JDL and chants and responses in Foley Square BEFORE they were muzzled.

Found a couple of twitter posts from the IFTAR-ists mocking the JDL counter protest:

As people gather for the community building protestors with signs reading “Keep Sharia Out” and “Thank you ICE” and “Back The Ban” have show up to instigate those here. [twitter]

Some not-so-friendly folks arrived at our but we’re going to continue to celebrate with love and solidarity in [twitter]

The New JDL NY responded to complaints from the anti-Zionists, “.. guess, holding an American flag, thanking law enforcement and wanting to keep Sharia out is unfriendly.

 The end of Ramadan 2018 (on June 14) is called Eid ul-Fitr (Festival of the Breaking of the Fast), a 3 day festival. Three Days! Wow. So much to look forward to.

“Nakba” Day 2018 NYC – New JDL counters anti-Israel LIES

May 18 and 19,  2018. Two Days of the “Nakba Day 2018” protests began in Times Square and ended next day in Grand Central Station. It began at 3 pm, in Times Square. [Face Book]


The New JDL NY was there, countering the LIES put out by the anti-Israel protestors:“Jihadists and their supporters will assemble on Times Square and call for Intifada. They will spread the lies of “Nakba” and promote the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Israel…”From the river to the sea….”

“Silence is dangerous. Silence will not end the lies. The lies will only grow stronger and so will the violence.” [the New JDL NY Face Book]

See Flickr Slide Show for more of the opposing sides:

The LIES from the Marxist Fascist Left : “ALL OUT IN COMMEMORATION OF THE NAKBA AND THE ONGOING STRUGGLE FOR LIBERATION AND RETURN”

 “March 30th, Land Day, marked the first day of the Great March of Return, a 46 day struggle leading up to “Nakba Day “on May 15th. From now until then and beyond, we in New York and around the globe must support the ongoing struggle in Palestine.

As the struggle escalates throughout historic Palestine and the diaspora, join NY4Palestine as we reiterate our commitment to the liberation and the right of return of all of historic Palestine from the strangles of the settler colonial Zionist state of ‘israel.’ “

Present for the Times Square “Nakba was Sara Flounders (of International Action Center), Bill Doares, Workers World Party, Raja Abdulhaq [Abulhaq is an active member of Al-Awda, a radical anti-Israel website that rallies for the “Right of Return,” otherwise known as the “One State Solution“], and always, the very racist Nerdeen-Mohsen Kiswani (who tried but could NOT persuade the NYPD to give her special on street  parking privileges.

Video Part 1

“It has been 70 years since nearly 1 million Palestinians were forcibly expelled from their homes by Zionist forces during the Al-Nakba (Arabic for the Catastrophe) To this day they and their descendants are still barred from returning. Israel has recently escalated its racist and genocidal policies, with the detention and killing of children increasing whilst Al-Quds, the capital of Palestine, is under threat.

“In reaction to the increase in these policies of ethnic cleansing the resilient Palestinian people, alongside their international allies, are organizing to let the world know that the land, from Haifa to Jerusalem to Gaza and all in between, will be liberated and that a sovereign, independent, free Palestine is inevitable as long as its people remain beacons of resistance.”

“While we mourn the “Nakba”, we celebrate the resistance and its steadfast sacrifices in ensuring that the question of Palestine gets an answer. The Zionists did not expect that 70 years later Palestinians would still be fighting for their freedom and dignity.

As the fight for liberation continues in the homeland, the fight for liberation continues from inside the belly of the beast. We will be rallying to demand the right of return for ALL Palestinians in the diaspora, to demand Israel keep its hands off al-Quds, to celebrate 70 years of resilience and resistance, and to denounce the settler colonial state of “israel.”

Video Part 2

The chants from the anti-Israel, “palestinian” demonstrators always focus on the annihilation and demonizing of Israel:

The “Nakba” did not end in 1948, nor did the resistance: There is only one solution! Intifada Revolution!We don’t want two states!We want 48!

“This past Tuesday, May 15 marked the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba. Nakba, Arabic for “catastrophe,” describes the mass expulsion of 750,000 – 1,000,000 “indigenous Palestinians” and the destruction of over 500 “Palestinian” villages that Zionist settlers carried out in 1947-1949 in order to establish a Jewish-majority state.”

Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City —Thank you to everyone who came out to Grand Central on Saturday for remind New York that Palestinians have the right to live in freedom. Palestinians have the right to return home. #Nakba70

Video Grand Central

The “Nakba” has continued ever since through different forms of political, legal and military violence, including the ongoing theft of “Palestinian” land to build Jewish-only settlements; the military detention of “Palestinian” men, women and children; and the 12-year siege of Gaza.

“The day prior, Monday, May 14, Israeli forces killed over 60 “Palestinians” in besieged Gaza and wounded thousands. This is the response to the near-culmination of the historic #GreatReturnMarch, where for seven weeks, tens of thousands of “Palestinians” — families, children, elders — have been gathering along the fence that keeps 2 million people penned in in an open-air prison. Remember, Resist, Return. Free Palestine.”

Remember: Am Y’srael Chai!

Bowling Green Square sign post in the background commemorates “Evacuation Day (1783), November 25,1783, when the last British troops left New York


Evacuation Day
on November 25 marks the day in 1783 when British troops departed from New York City on Manhattan Island, after the end of the American Revolutionary War. After this British Army evacuation, General George Washington triumphantly led the Continental Army from his former headquarters, north of the city, across the Harlem River south down Manhattan through the town to The Battery at the foot of Broadway.[1]

( The fence is the ORIGINAL 1700’s fence.)

The last shot of the war was reportedly fired on this day, as a British gunner fired a cannon at jeering crowds gathered on the shore of Staten Island, as his ship passed through the Narrows at the mouth of New York Harbor. The shot fell well short of the shore.[2]

Bowling Green Park is where Gen. George Washington and his troops waved off the departing British Troops AND dismantled the statue of  King George III.

“On July 9, 1776, after the Declaration of Independence was read to Washington‘s troops at the current site of City Hall, local Sons of Liberty rushed down Broadway to Bowling Green, where they ordered their African slaves to topple the statue of King George III. The fence post finials of cast-iron crowns on the protective fence were sawn off, with the saw marks still visible today.[5] The event is one of the most enduring images in the city’s history. According to folklore, the statue was chopped up and shipped to a Connecticut foundry under the direction of Oliver Wolcott to be made into 42,088 patriot bullets at 20 bullets per pound (2,104.4 pounds). The statue’s head was to have been paraded about town on pike-staffs, but was recovered by Loyalists and sent to England. Eight pieces of the lead statue are preserved in the New-York Historical Society;[7] one in the Museum of the City of New York as well as one in Connecticut [8] (estimated total of 260/270 pounds);[9] “[wiki]

An historical day in Manhattan but not too sure the tourists saw anything to write home about – except- the modern day statues of the Bull and the Fearless little girl.

What a shame.

New JDL NY says: Temple Emanu-El “NO NIF, NO BDS.No Israel Hate In Our Shuls!”

On Thursday, May 10th,2018, Composing For Peace: A Concert For Social Change” was held at the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center – NYC.

“A Concert / fundraiser for New Israel Fund Esp important now that Netanyahu has targeted it again for supporting Israeli organizations working for democracy, pluralism, equality for Palestinians and African migrants.” []


The Composing For Peace” concert celebrated Seeds of Peace 25th anniversary with  David Broza , Mira Awad and Noa (Achinoam Nini)

“In times of turbulence and uncertainty, music has the potential to capture the zeitgeist of a society, while inspiring human solidarity and renewed hope for the future. In this spirit, we have invited three renowned musicians—David Broza, Noa (Achinoam Nini) and Mira Awad —to perform and share stories about the unique role that music and the arts play in social change and in Israel today.

 While the concert – co-organized by NIF – was held INSIDE Temple Emanu-El, OUTSIDE the New Jewish Defense League NY stood up against the New Israel Fund … and one of it’s enablers … Temple Emanu-El. 

FACT: The New Israel Fund (NIF) supports BDS  (Boycott, Divestment, Sanction) and BDS is Antisemitism.


What was Temple Emanu-El thinking!? 

Our rabbis should be leading the fight to end BDS. Our shuls should be places that we are learning Torah, to love Israel and be a place to proud of who we are. They should never be a place that supports anti-Antisemitism!” [New JDL NY]

The New Jewish Defense League-NY rallied outside the concert to condemn BDS, voicing their outrage at Temple Emanu-El who denies that the New Israel Fund (NIF) assists in financing anti-Israel groups.

Silence is not an option!  So the New JDL NY , “… did something about it.”

 “Proof that what we (the JDL) did had an effect, we heard from a friend  inside that the concert started late because they addressed the protest outside (claiming) ‘NIF does not support BDS’.” [New JDL NY]

Temple Emanu-El, shame on you!

“Fight Together, Strike to Win” – Marx at 200, May Day 2018 NYC (pics & vids)

“Fight Together! Strike to Win! Migrants and Workers Run the World!, a May Day celebration of workers, migrants and all oppressed people in Union Square.


Noon, May 1, 2018. However, the usual location, Union Square South at 14th street, was oddly empty. Then I saw WHY. There were signs directing everyone to 17th street, to the North end of the square.

Once there, I  saw an isolated anti-Commie protestor at this new location; a union man from New Jersey. Solid. Proud as he worked his “pen” with a double-sided sign. Then, once inside the larger pen, I found the busy Commie-bees setting up their Socialism and Marxism tables. Capitalism reigned as they hawked their books, t-shirts and BUTTONS. Lots of books. Lots of buttons.
If Reason prevailed we would forget the books, t-shirts and buttons and declare this day, “International Victims of Communism Day 2018″

May Day is a fitting time to commemorate the tens of millions of victims of this murderous ideology: COMMUNISM. [Volokh Conspiracy]

May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool to prop up their [authority]. I suggest that we instead use it as a day to commemorate those regimes’ millions of victims. The authoritative Black Book of Communism estimates the total at 80 to 100 million dead, greater than that caused by all other twentieth century tyrannies combined. We appropriately have a Holocaust Memorial Day. It is equally appropriate to commemorate the victims of the twentieth century’s other great totalitarian tyranny. And May Day is the most fitting day to do so….

But, the Commies avoid TRUTH with their revisionist history and false narratives: Capitalism Bad, Communism Good : Hypocrites All.So, with their $19 a day truck (banners attached), the stage was set for the communist shills to blast familiar agitprop to an oddly small May Day “crowd”. (video)

As usual, the speakers kept the “raptured commies” raging against the Capitalist Machine. Raging against Israel. Racism. “Islamophobia”Recruitment is de rigueur: hook the naive passersby, sucker them into hating-on America, the West and Capitalism and they are owned.
As Workers UNITE! Against the Capitalist Machinerang through the air, the “choir “obediently  raged on and on against Capitalism.

Another anomaly, even though this was a public park, the Reds created ‘guards’ – unchallenged- to intimidate the “unwashed’ from entering their “sacred” PUBLIC  space.



Flickr slide show:
  Since the Parks Department forced the Commies to gather at the North End of Union Square , they were NOT happy;  blaming the very small turnout on location. (small pleasures)

Interesting moment, a kid who was NOT a communist and then a girl from the radical Left who told us to Shut Up.

Jovi Val spoke with this kid … who was NOT a communist. Smart kid. Audio not the best (I was using my cell) and amplification from stage was a bit loud but you can get the kid’s drift. And THEN this girl from the RED Brigade came over to tell us to SHUT UP!


We need to LEARN, said Commie babe, and LISTEN. Yeah, that’s the ticket SHUT UP!
After all, this is an important year, as they “celebrate” Marx 200.

Washington Post : Marx German Hometown- 200 years

is split over whether a democratic nation such as Germany — a nation divided for nearly a half-century due in no small part to its native son’s theories — should be erecting monuments that are paid for, designed and built by an authoritarian one such as China. Marx wrote the cookbook for communist dictatorships all over the world.

Not so long ago, Germany was tearing down statues of Marx. An icon of communist East Germany, his likeness scrubbed from many a town square after the country’s reunification under democracy and capitalism in 1990.

Whether Marx would have approved of how his theories have been applied is the subject of fierce debate. Many defenders insist he should not be held responsible for the way his ideas were distorted for murderous ends decades after his death. And love him or hate him, there’s no denying that the problems he identified — particularly the tendency of capitalism to create conflict between classes — remain relevant two centuries later.

Modern-day Trier, with a population just north of 100,000, reflects little evidence that Marx’s ideas had much impact locally. Icons of capitalism — McDonald’s hamburgers, luxury watches, designer clothing brands — are on sale in the grand central square. Marx’s boyhood home, meanwhile, has become a “euro store,” where everything from Chinese-made flip-flops to sunglasses can be purchased with loose change. The Marx statue itself stares out at a hair salon.”

From what was observed in Union Square NYC this day, the Revolution continues to march on to the discordant tunes of Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong – three major Communist mass-murderers, and the Fools and Tools are CELEBRATING.

National Day of Action Protest: End U.S. Wars at Home & Abroad – NYC

U.S. HANDS OFF SYRIA! Sunday, April 15, 2-4 pm – Herald Square, NYC [FaceBook]

This was an interesting adventure, glad we made a last minute decision to head down to Herald Square to catch the bait and switch escapades of the American Marxist tools.

The usual memes polluted the the air: “Out of the Middle East! End U.S. Aid to Israel! Solidarity with Gaza!End U.S. Wars @ Home & Abroad” [FaceBook]

​Speakers included Medea Benjamin of Code Pink, Ajamu Baraka of the Black Alliance for Peace, Chris Silvera, Secretary Treasurer of Teamsters Local 808 and many others …. We Are United! (8 short videos in the play list)

The Marxist palaver rang through the air from speaker after speaker (and was also passed out to the unknowing passersby.) See pdf of the Workers World:

  • Oppose all U.S. wars, nuclear threats, sanctions, coups and bases

The CPUSA (Communist Party USA) … and Friends …  ranted for two hours, supposedly about U.S. HANDS OFF SYRIA (Out of the Middle East).

But, it was more obviously an anti-U.S. meme, not just a plea to end all war.

The TRUTH squared: oppose all things Western, Capitalist, U.S based and of course, Israeli.

The Good News: American Patriots were there countering the Marxist lies. Patriot Jim McDonald was interviewed a couple of times, once by a Marxist passerby pretending to be reasonable.

Another interview with Jim McD was with Radio wNYC.

More from the Marxists and their anti, anti everything message: UNACpeace.org  called for:

  • End U.S. overt and covert wars, drone wars, sanction/embargo wars and death squad assassination wars.
  • Close all U.S. bases on foreign soil. Dismantle all nuclear weapons.
  • Bring all U.S. troops home now. Self-determination, not military intervention. U.S. hands off the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
  • End military aid to apartheid Israel. Self-determination for Palestine. The U.S. cannot be the cop of the world.
  • $Trillions for human needs … for jobs and social services, quality, debt-free education and single payer health care. No to anti-union legislation. For $15 and a union now.
  • Defend the environment against life-threatening, fossil-fuel-induced global warming. For a just transition to a 100 percent clean, sustainable energy system at union wages for all displaced workers.
  • No to white supremacy, police brutality/murder. End racist mass incarceration. Black Lives Matter.
  • No human being is illegal. No to mass deportations. Yes to DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program] and TPS [temporary protective status].
  • End all Wars at Home and Abroad! [unacpeace.org]

Scroll through a Flickr slide show of  the COMMUNIST RALLY/PROTEST, where NO American Patriots were welcomed.

The signs and banners, a mind-numbing example of what our media and educational institutions swallow as fact from the agit-prop machine of anarchy.

Some personal observations. At 1:45, the Communist sympathizers quietly assembled in front of Macy’s at 34th and Broadway. Hip-hop type music was blasted as this happy group of anarchists greeted each other; smiling, laughing.

I was left unchallenged (in a public square) for easily 30 minutes or more. Usually Sara Flounders (of IAC)  assigns someone to chase me away (today this didn’t happen til about 3:15 pm) So, I wandered, taking pictures of the many signs.

The protest is supposed to be about SYRIA, but sign after sign regurgitates all the many familiar anti-U.S. and anti-Israel memes.


Anything they can hang on the American DEVIL they will put on a poster. This is a protest against America.  Against Israel.

Then I saw our eponymous patriot, Jim McD boldly going where many in Manhattan fear to go: offering support for President Trump AND for AMERICA. I watched Jim and the Commies for about 15 minutes and then … Patriots of many colors and ages began to join him!

Eventually, the anti-Capitalistas surrounded the Patriots with the agit-prop signs and Syrian 2-star flags (the Commies are not represented by the Syrian 3-star flag) while spirited exchanges – some actually civil- took place for about an hour. (No police seemed concerned by the swarming of the patriots.)

The swarming was finally addressed around 3:25 pm. The police began to build a ‘wall’ of barricades – separating both sides with a never ending stream of police barricades. (Seemed a bit late since the march to Trump Tower would begin in about 30 minutes) But the separation of the factions – the push-back was on ….


Observed high emotions from some; seemed the barricades made a few of the Commies more angry than the sight of the patriots, arguing AGAINST the police creating any kind of barrier. (How dare they)

Some final thoughts from the LEFT on why they gathered this day and their “ALL OUT AGAINST WAR! STOP U.S. Bombing of Syria” campaign.

“The bombing of Damascus is underway.  With no legal authority and in clear violation of international law, the Trump Administration has started its criminal attack on the people of Syria with the largest U.S. Navy task force, including U.S. nuclear aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines, since the attack on Iraq in 2003. Trump and the Pentagon’s criminal attack on Syria endangers us all.

It is time for all of us to express our strong opposition to the U.S. bombing of Syria and the endless U.S. wars.The time is now to return to the street to make our voices heard … to challenge the war makers and defend humanity. The future is in our hands. Not Another War!”

(Pics & Videos) Commie/Fascisti “Palestinians” vs the NY-JDL Patriots – Union Sq

Great March of Return in the Gaza Strip.

What follows is their agitprop announcing an “All out for Gaza Action” in NYC’s Union Square.

“On Friday, March 30 an estimated 30,000 Palestinians in Gaza took part in the “Great March of Return” along the electric fence that has kept more than 2 million people ‘imprisoned’ for more than a decade.

The march, organized by a cross section of civil society, grassroots activists and political factions in the occupied enclave, called for an end of the Gaza’s brutal siege and the right of return for ‘Palestinian’ refugees. Conditions in Gaza are currently ‘unlivable,’ as described by the UN, with severe electricity shortages and water contamination, on top of periodic military assaults by Israeli forces.

(They claim that) ‘Israel reacted to families walking and chanting with a brutal show of force. Israeli snipers opened fire with live ammunition against the protestors and deployed tear gas against them by drones, killing at least 20 ‘Palestinians’ and injuring more than 1,500, half of which were shot with live ammunition.

And yet, tens of thousands of ‘Palestinians’ remain steadfast. They aim to stay 45 days until May 15, the 70th anniversary of the ‘Nakba,’ Arabic for ‘catastrophe,’ when 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled from their homes for the creation of the state of Israel.

We condemn these killings. We mourn the 20 ‘Palestinians’ killed. (And even more outrageous) the protestors claim that, ‘New York City stands with the tens of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza in this historic new wave of organizing and their quest to return home.’

Join us to show solidarity with the tens of thousands of ‘Palestinians’ in the besieged Gaza Strip carrying out the historic #GreatReturnMarch and to mourn the 20 ‘Palestinians’ shot and killed by Israeli forces along the border.”

I saw the usual Soc/Commie/Fascisti “Palestinians” at this “Hate on Israel” protest.

And also, the patriots from NY-JDL who managed a successful counter-protest, marching round and round — and round —  these militant anti-Semites; all the while holding the Israeli flag VERY HIGH above the crowd.

Slide show at Union Square

EA8_3251

A few of the anti-Israel Fascisti were assigned to the JDL marchers, sticking like glue and attempting to block their march, hoping that ultimately the NYPD would remove the patriots from this public square.

Videos, Part 1- Nerdeen Kiswani from NY-Students For Justice in ‘Palestine’ lead this action – SCREAMING into her megaphone – while patriots from NY-JDL (Jewish Defense League) marched while holding an Israeli flag high, VERY HIGH, above these militants.

Part 2 – Actress Kathleen Chalfant marched with the anti-Israel contingent…
…. seen at approx. 3:45 in the video.

Part 3 – There was much pushing and blocking – attempting to force the JDL out of the public square – it did NOT work. No laws were broken (by the JDL) They just keep walking, exercising their freedom speech and assembly.

Part 4- Eventually debates were taking place, some very contentious, like this exchange – instigated by a man (at 1:13) claiming he is a REAL Hebrew based on the color of his skin. His obnoxious ‘facts’ was challenged by a young Israeli.

All the while Nerdeen Kiswani from NYC- SJP (Students For Justice in Palestine) SCREAMED!! hatred into her megaphone.

And then, I spotted a familiar face, Nancy Mansour, smiling, laughing as she waved her ‘fakestinian’ flag.

Nancy’s method of protest is usually very aggressive. She would relentlessly block any opposition and usually get the NYPD involved, on her side.  But, today, Mansour has a new tact: smiles and dialogue.

Her questions were intended to twist my every word under the polite guise of dialogue. (she has a very proper British accent) She was so reasonable. (I was so ill-informed, uniformed, MISinformed) I had nothing right.

Questions came rapidly from Mansour : How can I support the Israeli (IDF) murders. The OCCUPATION. (She is a fast talker so responding was a challenge)

She stops me each time: I don’t know the truth about the Koran. Islam. Palestine. Israel. The EUROPEAN Jews should go back to Europe. And of course, there is no two State solution. Bottom line: I am guilty of gross generalizations that have dehumanized the ‘Palestinians’.

New info, Nancy is a Palestinian Christian. She says members of her family had been murdered by the Israelis, for decades. The Israelis are the enemy, not the “Palestinians”. (and she finds my air quotes and “fakestinians” to be demeaning)

Nancy’s father had her read the Quran, the Bible, the Torah and she ascribes to the “they worship the same G-d meme.” (How can she allow herself to be so wrong)

I attempted briefly to open a discussion on Islam: We must “speak truthfully about God, and the only way we can do that is to use the names God gave Himself. The God of the Bible is not Allah, and Allah is not the God of the Bible.” That went no where.

Mansour was unwilling to answer the few questions I asked of her regarding the murder of Jewish families sleeping in their homes. The bombing of busses and cafes. MURDERING Israeli citizens. She actually said, these murders are lies, Didn’t happen.

Her position unswerving: No peace until the OCCUPATION is over and the IDF murders end.

Nancy Mansour aka : Harrabic Tubman. Crusader for a ONE State Solution.

I know we ( Existence Is Resistance ) have participated in the past in events like the Gaza 5K run but in all honesty, we are done supporting this temporary, enabling bullshit ‘power’ called the United Nation

Palestinians do not need fucking food stamps, Palestinians need Justice and Freedom.

Shitty schools, shittier healthcare and sardines provided by the UN are basically helping continue the occupation and the UN os basically taking our money and footing the bill to continue Israels Occupation.

The United Nations should take all the money and actually hold Israel accountable for its atrocious war crimes against the Palestinian people and the 60 plus International laws it has violated.

Interesting, her attack on the U.N., but even so, we reached an impasse: there will be No Peace as long as anti-Israel activists like Nancy Mansour refuse to consider THEY might be wrong. (They REALLY might be WRONG.)

And that’s the rest of the story…..

An addendum of relevant info:  See Mark Langfan (AFSI) maps of Judea, Samaria [West Bank-Gaza Strip)

The Judea and Samaria Area covers a portion of the territory designated by the ancient names Judea and Samaria. Samaria corresponds to part of the ancient Kingdom of Israel, also known as the Northern Kingdom. Judea corresponds to part of the ancient Kingdom of Judah, also known as the Southern Kingdom.

The RT video of the action at the Gaza border reveals that the April 6th ‘Tire Protest’ was at best a pollution success.

UNREAL: Palestinians Who Burned Tires – So Israel Could Not See Terrorist Infiltrators – Demand Israel Give Them More Tires!!

But, the protestors really didn’t think this through….


Poster Courtesy of Honest Reporting

FACT: They burned no where near 10, 000 tires, a few hundred tires were burned, even so there is now a SHORTAGE of TIRES!!! and they blame ISRAEL (of course)

…. a spokesman for the Palestinian Transport Ministry complained of the ensuing shortage of tires, demanding that Israel supply more.

Ofir Gendelman, an Israeli diplomat and current spokesperson to the Arab media in the Prime Minister’s Office…Gendelman pointed out the the burning tires would create massive amounts of pollution and destroy nearby agriculture, adding to the suffering of the Palestinians. “But Hamas doesn’t care,”  … meanwhile… Israel has halted all imports of tires into the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian Authority official said on Sunday.“We have been informed by the Israeli side that imports of tires have been halted until further notice,” !!

Sanctuary Passover Seder/Jericho Walk : Solidarity with Illegal Migrants – NYC

How is This Walk Different From All Other Walks: A Passover Seder & Jericho Walk in Solidarity with Immigrants Foley Square . April 5, 2018 – 10:15am – 11:00am

(This Walk? Different?) Just the same ol, same ol from the Sanctuary City Coalition, EXCEPT this time they did a Passover Seder; a foolish display opposed by NY-JDL.

During the holiday of Passover, the Jewish community invited people of all faiths to gather for a pre-walk Seder ritual, in which they sought to connect Jewish tradition’s commitment to ending oppression and to welcoming the stranger with the fight for immigrant rights today; gathering as an act of solidarity with the New Sanctuary Coalition and friends who are “at risk” for detention and deportation from ICE.

The sedar was organized and led by Rabbi Joshua Stanton, Rabbi Lauren Grabelle Herrmann and immigration attorney/Avodah alumna Rachel Davidson – in collaboration with Ravi Ragbir and the New Sanctuary Coalition.

The JDL successfully frustrated the lefties, particularly illegal felon Ravi Ragbir, who attempted to block the JDL from assembling  in a public park (see video)

Every Thursday, Ravi Ragbir and his New Sanctuary Coalition bring together faith leaders, immigration activists and community members to march in silence and pray outside 26 Federal Plaza — in solidarity with those ( illegals) whom they claim are “denied their Right to Remain”.

NO BORDERS USA- SI! (that’s their ticket)

Part 1 video – at 3:16 to 3:28  Ravi foolishly attempts to force the JDL (in a public park) to move away from the Sanctuary Sedar.

Ravi Ragbir (illegal felon) demanding Solidarity with Illegal Migrants.

Part 2 video. Ravi’s Passover Sanctuary Sedar demanded LIBERATION for all illegals.

The NY-JDL leaders asked: Should I bring matzah?  🙂

The sedar was followed by the Jericho Walk from 11:00 am-12:30pm, SEVEN times round and round  26 Federal Plaza (Foley Square is between the courts and Federal Plaza). I left: been to one seven times around- you’ve been to the ALL.

If Not Now Dayenu LIES (and Kaddish) countered by NY-JDL Facts

April 4, 2018 – 4 pm to 7 pm- Both sides met up at Third Avenue and 40th street for this “Dayenu, Gaza and STOP the LIES” protest-kaddish for terrorists, the pro-Israel NY-JDL and the IF NOT NOW Leftist Jews.

The anti Israel “If Not Now” Jews then did a VERY short march to 633 Third avenue (outside the Union for Reform Judaism.)

Outside 633 they attempted to give more speeches as they read the names of the 17 dead terrorists (Kaddish) while the NY-JDL patriots chanted LOUDLY back at them.

The contrast between these two opposing groups, feeling sad and worried about the future as we listened to and watched these American Jewish youths rally outside the Union for Reform Judaism (and say Kaddish for the dead Hamas terrorists.)

So misguided.

But also encouraged by the determination of the patriots to fight BACK against the LIES of the LEFT. The TRUTH shall make you FREE.

Part 1 video it begins as both sides meet

Part 2 the (very short)  march to 633 Third Ave.

Part 3- “Kaddish” for the Muslim terrorists, as they mourned their deaths …. which enraged the patriots … which is when  I heard cries of “GOOD” and “17 More” coming from the patriots!

Links to reports on the march protest: Jewish Press; JPost.

“17 dead, over a thousand injured after Palestinians clash with IDF on Gaza border.”

“PA leader Mahmoud Abbas said on Friday that Israel is responsible for the deaths of Gazan protesters who participated in the Friday riots near the border fence.

”The marches today prove that the Palestinian people will not aid any plan that wishes to close the lid on the Palestinian issue”, he said.

”Jerusalem will remain Arab,” said Abbas.

The US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital angered many in the Arab and Muslim world, leading some Palestinians to argue that the US may no longer be a suitable peace negotiator between Israelis and Palestinians.”

JERUSALEM WILL NEVER BE ARAB.
