PROTEST HIRING CEO DAVID MYERS AT CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY

ACTION ALERT!PROTEST THE HIRING OF DAVID MYERS AT THE CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY – WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2017 [ 5-8 PM ]

Stand with Israel. Say No to BDS.

“Hey hey, ho ho. David Myers has got to go.”

David Myers called the founding of the State of Israel a NAKBA!

“On Wednesday evening, Oct. 18, outside the NYC Center for Jewish History (CJH) , Americans For a Safe Israel/AFSI and JCC Watch.org led a protest against David Myers, the new President and CEO of the CJH.

The protest demonstration at the Center for Jewish History called for the firing of CEO David Myers – a foe of Israel and Jewish history.”

“Over 200 people assembled in front of the stage set up on W. 16th Street to hear speeches from AFSI’s Co-Executive Directors, Helen Freedman and Judy Freedman Kadish, JCCWatch.org President Richard Allen, ZOA’s Liz Berney, AFSI’s Charlie Bernhaut, Concerned Citizen Stewart Cahn, Yom HaShoah Committee Chair Lynn Bursky-Tammam, along with rocking music by the trio of brothers, Pey Dalid.”

The overall message was the following:

“We, the people, the grassroots, are here to speak up for TRUTH. Enough of the lies and falsehoods. Enough of the revisionist history. The time is NOW, as we stand before the Center of Jewish History – the home of five esteemed institutions – that has allowed itself to be trapped in a quagmire. With David Myers as CEO and President of the Center, it becomes the Center of Revised Jewish History, with the Jewish story, the Jewish entitlement – biblical, historic, and legal, lost in the fictions and distortions that he brings with him.

Myers has preached the “inevitable demise of Israel”. How dare he deny our 4000-year-old history, and Hashem’s promise to us that we are his chosen people, to whom he gave the Torah and the Land of Israel? How dare Myers speak about removing Israel as central to Jewish identity?

There is no other people that has always made Jerusalem its central core. In the midst of the joy of the Jewish wedding, the glass is shattered, reminding us of our connection to Yerushalayim.”

“Has David Myers been to the “settlements” in Judea and Samaria? Has he ever been on a trip such as an AFSI Chizuk mission, where we climb the hills of Itamar, Yitzhar, Kedumim, Elon Moreh, Shilo, Eli, and on and on? Has he met the people and seen their homes, schools, work places? If he has, then he knows there is no “occupation” and these are the biblical holy places, and NOT the West Bank. If not, then he must visit them before he condemns them.”

Joining the protest hosted by AFSI and JCC Watch was the peaceful support of the New JDL – NY.

All were there to support the State of Israel and to peacefully protest the egregious hiring of David Myers as CEO for the CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY. It is an outrage.

“How dare David Myers excuse the evil terrorism of the Arabs which has been going on since the early 1900’s and continues on a daily basis today. He says that it is “frustration” driven. What drivel is that? What humanity is that? Do we excuse mass murderers because they are “frustrated?”

How dare David Myers rewrite Jewish history so that the Balfour Declaration of 1917 is questioned, the Israel victories of 1948 and 1967 are declared disasters, and a case of Israel “conquering” its own land, rather than re-claiming it?

We have to change the trajectory – anti-Israel propaganda against Israel cannot be tolerated – especially in an institution named THE CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY. The time is NOW!!

What history will David Meyers be teaching those who walk through those doors? What lies and defamations will he be promoting, disguised as historical facts? Will it be the propaganda of J Street, the New Israel Fund, BDS, If Not Now, Open Hillel  and the Academic Advisory Council of Scholars for Israel and Palestine? This is intolerable.

We denounce the evil of such teachings and plead with the Center of Jewish History to purge itself of this infection in its midst – FIRE MYERS – FIRE MYERS – FIRE MYERS!!”

What can YOU do? It is URGENT that all those concerned should CONTACT THE CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS AND ASK,”WHY AREN’T THEY PROTESTING AGAINST DAVID MYERS?”

The five organizations comprising the Center of Jewish History have been silent about David Myers’ ascendancy to the leadership of CJH. We must ask them, WHY?

  • WHY are they silent when Myers believes Israel is an “occupier”?
  • WHY are they silent when Myers is a supporter of Israel’s enemies such as J Street, New Israel Fund and If Not Now?
  • WHY are they silent when Myers sees the Israeli victory of 1948 as the “wound of the Naqba” – Arab disaster?
  • WHY are they silent when Myers believes that “the root cause of BDS is the “occupation” and “West Bank settlements”?

DAVID MYERS MUST RESIGN FROM CJH AND THE ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS AMONG ITS LEADERSHIP MUST BE EXPOSED AND EXPUNGED.

WE MUST NOT ALLOW CJH TO BE TAKEN OVER BY THOSE OPPOSING ISRAEL AND TRYING TO REWRITE JEWISH HISTORY.

CONTACT THE LEADERSHIP OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS AND ASK THEM, WHY?. After all, what’s more important than saving the Jewish Future and protecting Jewish History?

NYC Columbus Day Parade 2017 – the parade and politics (pics and vids)

[twitter.com/staceysager7] [ABC News]

Mayor de Blasio, Gov. Cuomo wade into controversy in city’s Columbus Day Parade

“A torrent of boos rained down on Mayor de Blasio as he walked in the Columbus Day Parade in Midtown Monday. Some New Yorkers at the celebration of the city’s Italian-American heritage were irate that de Blasio is considering removing the iconic statue of Christopher Columbus at Columbus Circle. “ [NY Daily News]

But, what I heard and saw was a lot of happiness, particularly when they saw the Save the Columbus Statue signs.

“The usual suspects have discovered that Christopher Columbus was no 21st century liberal. Of course, that shouldn’t surprise anyone since he lived in a time of empires, slavery, monarchies, and ignorance.
But he rose above his time and literally united the world. Without him there would be no America, no us.

We don’t celebrate Columbus for his failings, including holding once common beliefs which we rightly have come to abhor. We celebrate him for his unique, even heroic, virtues. We celebrate him for having helped make the modern world.” [townhall]

NYC Italian-Americans: Save Columbus Circle Statue!

“They have forgotten what the contributions of different cultures have meant to various societies. There is the bad, as we have seen from history, and as we see now, but there is also the good. If Caucasians are so bad, then why is one section of the world struggling to empty into the Western lands? Do you see any exodus headed elsewhere?” [Facebook]

** 1891 lynchings Italian Americans

In late 19th-century America there was a growing prejudice against Italians, who were immigrating to the American South in large numbers to fill the shortage of cheap labor created by the end of slavery. Sugar planters, in particular, sought workers who were lower paid and more compliant than former slaves; they hired immigrant recruiters who began bringing the Italians to southern Louisiana. In the 1890s, thousands of Italians were arriving in New Orleans each year. Many settled in the French Quarter, which by the early 20th century became known as “Little Sicily.”[22] 

Southern Italians were not considered full-fledged members of the “white race”… Between 1890 and 1910, Sicilians made up less than 4 percent of the white male population, yet were roughly 40 percent of the white victims of southern lynch mobs.[54] ** [The Silent Majority No More]

Italian-Americans fight movement to abolish Columbus Day

Some 35,000 people are expected to march in Monday’s Columbus Day Parade, which will wind up Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 72nd Street, honoring the explorer sent by Spain.

Columbus is celebrated in Latin America, too. A massive monument to the explorer, the Columbus Lighthouse, opened in 1992 in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. Puerto Rico commemorates Discovery Day on Nov. 19, marking the day Columbus landed there. [NY Post]

Ralph Arellanes, chairman of the activist group Hispano Round Table of New Mexico, said that as a Hispanic, he supports Columbus Day. Arellanes also said he doesn’t understand why Italians claim Columbus for themselves when Columbus was sailing for Spain

“It was the marriage of two peoples creating a new people, in a new land,” he said. Though Columbus “wasn’t a saint,” he said, he believes Anglo-Americans like President Andrew Jackson should be held more responsible than the Spanish for the hardships Native Americans faced[NY Post]

Why We Should Celebrate Columbus Day from Osia.org

>

Columbus Day is the ONLY Day recognizing the contributions of 26 million Italian Americans.

“INDIGENOUS : originating or occurring naturally in a particular place is native. “Indigenous Peoples Day” is a FRAUD.”

How did “indigenous peoples” get to America? Conventional wisdom says that “Native” Americans descended from prehistoric hunters who walked from northeast Asia across a land bridge, formed at the end of the Ice Age, to Alaska some 12,000 years ago. American Indians resemble the people of Mongolia, China and Siberia.

Where did the “Native” American Indians come from? The ancestors of “Native” American populations from the tip of Chile in the south to Canada in the north, migrated from Asia in at least three waves… An overview of the people who first discovered and lived in the Americas, called American Indians or Native Americans.

Many thousands of years ago, late in the Ice Age, the Indians journeyed across the Bering land bridge, from Asia into Alaska. Their descendants explored along the west coast of North America.

Most of the scientific evidence is that Indian ancestors came from Asia in prehistoric times, when mammoths and other ancient animals did. This would have had to happen more than 20,000 years ago, when there was still a land bridge there … [NOT Native: CASE CLOSED.]

Raise Your Voice, No Muslim Ban Ever Prayer Vigil NYC

“Raise Your Voice” Prayer Vigil in Foley Square – October 15, 2017 – 6 pm (The JDL was there too – in SUPPORT of travel RESTRICTIONS)

“On October 18th, the newest Muslim Ban will fully go into effect. Our coalition is mobilizing supporters to go to Washington that same day, but we’re also organizing for candlelight vigil the weekend before. As this administration continues to exclude thousands of people with discriminatory policy, we stand up and fight back… to show the world that New Yorkers stand with our brothers and sisters affected by the Muslim Ban! #NoMuslimBanEver”

This event began with Debbie Almontaser (Intifada NYC T shirt) as she announced the Maghreb Prayer, with a look at the crowd and the JDL protestors;  then an excerpt of the Maghreb prayer. (video 1)

After the Maghreb prayer Almontaser introduced the groups, many progressive Jewish Groups, that supported the march, rally, prayer vigil.

Queens Solidarity Coalition
South Asian Fund for Education, Scholarship & Training -Safest
Veterans for American Ideals NY-NJ
Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City
Arab American Association of New York

Lastly, they were followed with words from members of the affected (Muslim) states as Almontaser introduced two of the speakers (video 3)

Vice President for Academic Affairs & Associate Provost Dr. Reza Fakhari, elected by the Board of Directors of Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) as its Vice Chairman,

Almontaser mentioned the Yemeni Bodega Strike, where as many as 5,000 business owners and their supporters gathered in Brooklyn for a protest against President Trump’s immigration ban. The speaker led Yemeni Bodega strike and is Vice president of the Yemeni American Merchants Assoc. Zaid Nagi.

FYI- The Facebook info-link for the Wednesday – October 18 – No Muslim Ban March and Rally in DC

#NoMuslimBanEver Campaign, was a grassroots awareness and mobilization effort that “happened” in the weeks leading up to and on October 18, 2017, when the newest “Muslim Ban” went into effect.

Dr. Almontaser is currently President of The Board Of Directors of the Muslim Community Network. The Muslim Community Network identifies and cultivates the leadership skills of all Americans to fully participate in the social landscape.

” MCN’s strategies include creating strong relationships with other faith-based communities; articulating and advancing an understanding of the need for citizen engagement; developing the skills and ability of our community to affect change; and building the next generation’s identity and capacity as leaders.

  • Social Justice Framework – We use a social justice framework to encourage engagement in addressing the root causes of inequality.
  • Inclusion, Unity, and Diversity – We work with all of New York’s diverse Muslim and non-Muslim communities. We value diverse leadership and voices.  We seek to facilitate the emergence of a Muslim identity that transcends generational, ethnic, gender, racial and class-based boundaries.
  • Mutual Consultation – We believe in mutual consultation as a decision making process which works to build consensus and cooperation among diverse opinions, identities and experiences.
  • Self Determination  — We create spaces for all New Yorkers to engage one another and take an active role in their society. Rather than attempt to represent all Muslims or New Yorkers, we prefer to bring people to the table to represent themselves.
  • Empowerment – We facilitate individual and community empowerment by providing spaces for reflection and consciousness-raising within the Muslim community, which develops the confidence and self-reliance necessary for the realization of power.
  • Partnership – We value partnership as a means of effectively expanding the ways in which we can serve multiple communities through multiple methods.
  • Creating Connections – We do not seek to reinvent the wheel, but rather to connect those with experience and expertise to audiences that can benefit from their teachings.

We believe that social justice is both a goal and a process. We also believe in supporting the Muslim community to not just actively work to assure its own civil rights, but the rights of other groups as well. We believe in cultivating cross-generational leadership which will serve as a foundation for the building truly inclusive communities.”

“Building Bridges” NYC Muslim Day Parade 2017

The ANNUAL Muslim Day Parade, September 24, 2017. With CAIR and Rabbi Marc Schneier as Honorary Grand Marshal, the theme this year was “Building Bridges”: a message of UNITY.

The New JDL said, “Since CAIR will use the parade as an opportunity to recruit and promote their false agenda, exposing CAIR should be everyone’s mission.”    [see AFDI subway ad from 2014]


In 2010, Nihad Awad Exec Dir and Founder of  Council on American-Islamic Relations was a Grand Marshal. (Hamas-loving, Nihad, is second from right.)

And now,for the first time in the parade’s history (in 2017) a Jewish leader will be honored: Rabbi Marc Schneier will serve as the honorary grand marshal.”

Who is this bridge-building rabbi?

“Rabbi Marc Schneier , the philandering spiritual leader was booted from the Rabbinical Council of America two years ago after dumping wife No. 4 so he could marry wife No. 5. He is now married to wife No. 6.  …. one congregant told The Post last year, “It’s like, ‘Marc cheated on his wife again — what’s new?’ It became a running joke: the annual Marc Schneier wedding.”

This desperate attempt to jump-start the dwindling Muslim Day Parade, with a philandering rabbi and terror-loving CAIR, came to naught. It remains a fragmented event … yearning to “build bridges” to no where.

After 32 years, not even the Muslim community is motivated to show up.

I heard more than one reporter/photographer comment on the very THIN turnout this year .


They had expected a larger crowd due to claims of Trump-Islamophobia, but that was NOT the case.

As usual, the parade started with tarps laid out on Madison Avenue for the noon-day Dhuhr prayer.

“All Muslims must have to support this noble cause. We must have to come out, stay united and show our strength minimum at this platform which called a Muslim Day Parade.”

“It’s not me it’s not you. It’s US brothers & Sisters. It’s all of US and all about US.  Building Bridges.”

“As salamo Alikum brothers & Sisters. Come with your entire family. Remember together we strong and unbreakable strength divided we fall. Show your strength. Send the message to entire world thru your unity. God bless you all. Ameen.”

 10 years I’ve observed this annual event. And now, with dwindling stats perhaps it begs for a look-back …. before I walk away.

The PRAYERS

“Friends, try as much as possible to participate. Many reasons why it is crucially important to take part.”

 Flickr Slide Show Part 2 (after the prayers)

IMG_9165

Typos aside, as I re-read their mission statement from Imam Shmasi Ali, I noticed near the end, an allusion to a ‘lack of interest’ in the parade.

      ” 1)This is new yorker. Muslims are an integral part of this great city.

2) This is the city of bridges. With our non Muslim friends we continue building those bridges as our theme says it.

3. We must response to the current challenges (hate, racism, Islamophobia, anti Semitism, xenophobia) by action.

4. This parade shows brotherhood/sisterhood, both on communal and human level.

5. More importantly, this parade is dedicated in solidarity with Rohingya people. Are you a part of that one body?

6. Either you believe in the parade, or not (as it the case to some), I am sure you’re all believers in faith unity (wihdah imaniyah) and human family (usrah insaniyah).

God bless you all. Ameen. Regards, Imam Shamsi , Shabir Gull & Sheikh Tauqeer ul haq.”

Part 2

The NEW JDL  peacefully protested the parade and its organizers. “No Bridges With Terrorists” NO CAIR !


How do you build bridges when one of your sponsors works with the Muslim Brotherhood and finances Hamas?

The organizers claim the parade will address anti-Semitism. Really? With CAIR on-board the parade supports attacks against Jews in Israel. 

Predictably, the ‘progressive’ Jewish groups were there lending support to CAIR and terrorism. (Capos.)

The Turk-undertaker (Erhan Yildirim), also a community co-ordinator for the NYPD, gave a hard-stare to the JDL signs.

 The Muslim Day Parade legitimizes CAIR as a positive advocacy group, which we know they aren’t, and the idea that Islam means peace.

After the prayers, I decided to skip the walk down Madison Ave. But the New JDL went the whole distance. This was their report.

“Yes, we walked with them, however we started to feel less love the closer we got to the staging area. (25th St and Madison Ave) One “lady” insisted on calling us “Hitler’s children”.

“On the flip side, a very nice black guy, who was a medic assigned to the parade, gave us ice packs and a male participant from the parade shook James’ hand. When we got to the speakers’ area, the love was gone.”

 The stage in 2015

“One rather angry “lady” took our pic and then went to parade “security”. A large black dude who told us since CAIR is part of the event, we can’t stand there with the signs. He told us if we didn’t leave he would get the police”

“We told him very nicely fine, get the police. If the police ask us to leave, then we will go. His final attempt at having us removed, he went to a couple of large police officers in riot gear and told them about the “bad Jews”. (the saga ends)

The speeches were boring as all hell. Most of the speakers could not be understood. They should have spoke in their native languages. Carolyn Maloney spoke. I understood her. The rabbi (Mark Schneier) … the rabbi spoke liberal gibberish.”

The rabbi speaking to www.itvusa.tv Global Dawah Television : “Call to Peace, Save Humanity . Our primary objective is to propagate Islam and it’s true nature of love and care for the humanity.

The NEW JDL continues, “They spoke of love for the U.S. but then spoke of standing with Kapernick & other football players.  They spoke of standing with the president but then condemned DACA and his policies towards immigrants. One speaker praised Sarsour a few times.” (Note Sarsour and Schneier at “I am a Muslim, too” – Times Square 2017)

“Oh yes, there were three floats. THREE . We couldn’t figure out why there was a Turkish flag and two others (not sure where they were from) on the Temple Mount float. They called it Al Aqsa. Tried to inform them otherwise but they wouldn’t listen.”

Floats in 2011- they are the same every year

2010

2010 

“We tried to decide which float was the best. It was very challenging because there was such a variety. (snark intended)

One more thing, no Muslim Day Parade would be complete without some hard core “I love Jesus” people coming over. One of them danced some sort of jig. Now their t shirts were “inflammatory”. On it was – Muslims bad, Homosexuals bad, etc. (I’m paraphrasing.) No one said anything to them. Only the bad Jews/JDL.

This had to have been the most boring parade I have ever been to. Good grief. We decided we were probably the most entertaining people there.

On a good note; we brought awareness about CAIR. Many people never heard of CAIR. Now they have. End the silence! Anti-Semites have no place on our streets!”

IN CONCLUSION: Part 3

Supported by CAIR and the very LEFT Jewish BDSers, these elements did not make the bridge inviting nor strong. Obviously. And it is not the first time that terrorism made it’s presence known within the ranks of the Muslim Day Parade.

In 2013 – the militant flags marched down Madison.

2013 – The Muslim Brotherhood Black Hand salute.

2014, plastic guns and virgins.

Plastic guns. Jailed virgins. What were they thinking?

Women hung. The scaffold. The noose.  These were the parade ” floats” in 2014.

 In 2017, the creeping jihad was still at work. As the Indonesian/Indian Muslims, historical victims of the Muslim invasions, marched in praise of their  conqueror. Islam forced upon their countries and yet, they do not, cannot change. Living the lie that Islam can live in peace with America (and perhaps the world).

This year the signs of worldly discord exposed were the HINDUS “anti-Islam” Myanmar uprising. Who is the victim? Who is the aggressor?

“The media and the international elites are framing the jihad in Burma as another “Muslims are victims” story. But it is not. It is another Islamic supremacist holy war to kill and conquer — more of what we are seeing in the Philippines, Nigeria, Kenya, Israel, Congo, Thailand, Chechnya, etc. etc. “Rohingyas threat to national security, they have link with Jihad.” [Pamela Geller]

Is this the Crusades. Andalusia. Taking back their countries from centuries of Muslim horror. Perhaps Myanmar has had ENOUGH.

An addendum:

And then, I remembered my NYC niqab and hijabs photo essays from 2012, more evidence of creeping Islam- CAIR- ISNA- ICNA – the Linda Sarsours- Muslim Brotherhoods, Muslim Student Assoc., slowly but surely bringing the 7th century to the public square – making it the ‘norm’.

Are the second- third generations  of Muslims assimilating? Or not. Since I found the 7th Century walking around Times Square. I wondered. It was unsettling.

New JDL – NY says “Honor the Victims not the Killer, Rasmea Odeh

At 4:30 pm, Monday, August 14th. The anti-Israel Left held a rally to CELEBRATE murderess Rasmea Odeh (an ICON of Resistance) in Union Square Park.

“We urge all to join us on 14 August in NYC to show our love and support for Rasmea Odeh before her sentencing in federal court three days later in Detroit. This will be her last court appearance and Rasmea is planning to make a statement.

Rally to support Rasmea Odeh Hosted by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network

The plea agreement that has already been reached states that Rasmea will not get additional jail time – but she will have to leave the U.S. This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader.

This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader. This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader. Gather on the steps in the southern plaza.” [Face Book]  

They were endorsed by an obscenely LONG list of puppet and ghost organizations:

BUT, the New-JDL had a counter-demonstration to “Honor the Victims NOT the Killer, Rasmea Odeh”.

They were there to counter the Samidoun LIES with FACTS: Rasmea Odeh is a terrorist convicted of the murder of two young Jews, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner on Feb. 21st, 1969.

They were killed in an explosion in an Israeli market. Odeh murdered them, yet she was being honored  at a rally in Union Square Park.

“The public must be made aware that she is a convicted murderer and not a victim. The public must be made aware that Edward and Leon are the victims. Please join us and help fight the lies of radical Islamics and their supporters.” [Face Book]

The JDL gathered “at the steps in the southern plaza” before the Samidoun arrived, creating a dilemma of sorts for the anti-Zionists. Now they couldn’t display their signs on the steps as planned.

Video 1

But, did they have a Plan B? Perhaps not, as the Samidoun stood around laughing, smirking and pointing at the JDL while they pondered what to do next.

A decision was finally made to walk in a circle (they love going round and round) and that they did while chanting “Racists go Home”.

VIDEO – 2

Eventually, some of the younger terrorist-lovers did the predictable, standing in front of the JDL signs.Then some of the younger JDL’s became more vocal as they two sides edged closer and closer  finally coming nose to nose just as the NYPD arrived.

Video 3

 The JDL counter-protest was VERY successful proving it does NOT take an army to weaken the resolve of these radicals – even though that may be brief – it was FUN to watch their confusion. They obviously expected only SUPPORT for their murderous darling, Rasmea Odeh.


Interestingly, the NYPD officers seemed almost bemused as they placed barricade after barricade between the two groups, building a Wall to keep the PEACE.

Maybe there’s something to be said for walls, PEACE and safety from the violent animus of WAR-mongers like Samidoun and Hamas.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas share certain goals and values. To each, it is not a question of whether a peaceful settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is possible. It never will be acceptable. What is acceptable is violence against civilians. [investigative project]

 SO, Goodbye and Good Riddance to Rasmieh Odeh

The creation of a state of terror, instability and panic in the souls of the Zionists” is a goal spelled out in the Islamic Jihad’s internal bylaws […] Hamas unveiled an updated charter this year […] it remains committed to never recognizing Israel’s right to exist and demands “the full and complete liberation of Palestine : “from the river to the sea”. 

In other words, no peace while Israel exists.

Rasmieh Odeh bombed that grocery store before either group was created [Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad] so America has lost a pioneer in Palestinian terrorism. Take note of who grieves for that loss more than the loss of life she caused. [investigative project]

 == UPDATE on Reparations PAYBACK 2017==

Norway Demands Palestinians Repay Funds and U.S. Congress Cheers. No moneys can be  used to HONOR KILLERS like Terrorist and Murderess, Dalal Mughrabi

A total of 38 Israelis, including 13 children, were killed and 72 were wounded by Dalal Mughrabi [eight other militants died as well as Mughrabi]

Leaked photos of Dalal Mughrabi’s remains in a Palestinan propaganda leaflet which purports to show former PM Ehud Barak taking a suicide belt off of Mughrabi.

Members of the US Congress are hailing Norway’s recent actions and calling for Washington to take similar steps.

Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recently introduced an amendment to an appropriations bill that would have prohibited US funds from being used by the PA to publicly honor terrorists. The amendment was disqualified by the House Rules Committee on a technicality, but Sarah Stern — the president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) — said that she and her colleagues will be working with members of Congress to reintroduce a similar amendment “at the earliest opportunity.” [Pamela Geller, Jewish Breaking News]

Tell Roger Waters “No BDS Here!” at the Belasco Theatre

“Music is intended to transcend political barriers and promote cultural exchange, pluralism, and diversity. Instead, Roger Waters is promoting hate. The Jewish Defense League will continue to take actions against Roger Waters until he renounces antisemitism in all of its forms, including the unjust boycott of the Jewish state.” [Face Book]

 Video below of Waters arriving to a chorus of “Shame on you” at the  Sept 10th protest :

The Belasco Theatre, where the equally despicable, Michael Moore is appearing in  his failed Broadway show, “THE TERMS OF MY SURRENDER“.

Roger Waters has been a vocal advocate for BDS and anti-Israel rhetoric making it imperative that organizations like the JDL and AFSI hit the streets in opposition to his anti-Israel, anti Jewish animus.

Still, many of the passersby outside the Belasco had never heard about the anti- Jewish, anti-Israel agit-prop supported by Waters (and Moore).

Many, like this woman, were sorry they had tickets for the Barclay Center.

Roger Waters may be a giant to some, but this is one despicable human being coming to Brooklyn’s Barclay Center on September 11th and 12th.

Advocates FOR Israel will be outside the Center NOT welcoming him:  “WE DON’T NEED NO ROGER WATERS!”

They will carry signs like, “BDS NOT WELCOME HERE!”,  “HELL NO! ROGER MUST GO!” and “Say NO to Roger Waters” and ENOUGH!

Silence equals complicity.

Silence permits anti-Semitism to grow.

We must be SILENT NO MORE!

9 -11 NEVER GIVE IN – NEVER FORGET!!

A Day of Remembrance. A Day of Mourning.

“It’s a day the left would rather we ignore. It’s a day that Islamic supremacists secretly and not so secretly celebrate. It’s a day the elites call a day of service. In service to whom? The attackers? The simpering soft selling and apologetics is a deliberate distraction and a diversion from discussing the enemy and their ideology. September 11th is national day of mourning. Period.” [Pamela Geller]

A Day that lives in Infamy.

I don’t remember what year I took this video, it was possibly 2010 or earlier. What caught my eye, as I got closer, was the Jewish bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace”, with the tower blue lights shining heaven ward, reminding us that This is NOT a Day of Service, Obama.

This is a Day of Remembrance. A Day of Mourning.


Never, Never, NEVER FORGET!

Sadly, in 2017 the truth is silenced and the enemy grows bolder making “Can’t We Talk About This” an important tool in the fight against Islamic Terrorism. Never Give In.
