On October 6, 2015, the “forces of Fakestine” called for a “Day of Rage” falsely claiming the indiscriminate killings of Fakestinian youth. While ignoring the TRUTH : these Muslim youths are terrorists who are INDISCRIMINATELY murdering the people of Israel.
The THIRD Intifada (a euphemism for DEATH to Israel/ Death to the Jews) was mentioned often at this rage-filled protest, hosted by NY4Palestine and co-sponsored by:
Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition
American Muslims for Palestine
NYC Students for Justice in Palestine
Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
Jews for Palestinian Right of Return
Existence Is Resistance
Labor for Palestine
MENA Solidarity Network-US
NYC Solidarity with Palestine
Direct Action Front for Palestine
Muslim American Society – MAS NY
International Action Center
Of course there was the ubiquitous Guy Fawkes masked ‘crusader’ with the flag of “fakestine”
Familiar faces appeared in the crowd at this protest. Leaders of previous paleo-protests against Israel who have not been as visible in recent years.
Where have they been? No matter, the Third Intifada pulled them from obscurity.
Part 1 -Video
Lamis Deek, attorney to the paleos, was back running like the girl-in-charge. (missing her ubiquitous coffee cup).
Caleb Maupin, North Korean Commie lover and now a reporter for Iran’s Press TV was smugly at hand (Seen to the Right of this picture)
Andy Pollack, the older guy, is a union-pali-illegals-commie agitator always lurking on the edge of the crowd.
This seemed to be a college-age crowd. Perhaps that brought the agitprop-sponsors out to inspire the next gen of paleo-agitators.Missing in action- Sara Flounders (IAC) and Bill Doares of the Workers Party. Others, familiar college-age advisors to the college Muslim Groups were also missing, like Dima Abi Saab, an organizer with Al-Awda-NY, who claimed to have been a passenger on the Mavi Marmara .
This seemed to be a guys event – the leaders. As for the distaff participants, there were pretty Muslim girls with flyers – New York ‘Students for Justice in Palestine’ –Jewish females Hating on IsraelAnd all pumping Nazi-fists to the sky.
One of the protest leaders was an argumentative Paleo in the black shirt, Raja Abdulhaq, a huge Muslim Brotherhood supporter. Also, working the crowd, was fellow Israel basher (kuffiya-guy with Andy Pollack) for whom I have no name, but I KNOW his face ….
MIA : Eddie Pages (their 20 something photographer) and Nancy Mansour (aka “Harrabic Tubman“) of Existence is Resistance. What happened to that angry, abusive Brit. Is she still hanging out in Fakestine ? Apparently not. UPDATE: Nancy will be on-the-scene screening T-shirts at the next big Anti- Israel/Solidarity with the Third Intifada Protest on October 18, 2015.
Back to October 6th –New and refreshing participation at the Paleo-protest as the anti-Israel chants droned on and on: Three brave Israeli girls who boldly sang and challenged those Paleo-Lies:
“Settlers, settlers go back home, Palestine is ours alone!” INTIFADA! INTIFADA!”From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!” “From CUNY to Palestine, occupation is a crime”
Part 2 -video
The girls stood right where the crowd could see them, and the cops left them alone! (That was a thrill to see.)
The cops usually hop to Lamis Deek – whatever she asks for- but this time her complaints about these young women went ignored. (how NICE)
PICTURES Slide Show-
Luckily, coverage of this protest seemed to be limited to a few blogs and TV media that supported the Paleos, like Demotix News : Articles One and Two
The Russian RT-TV (Lamis Deek reported for them)
AND IRAN’s Press TV – Caleb Maupin– US #infrastructure crumbles, we have no jobs… ” But we give $18 Million/Day to Israel.
Activist Vienna Rye filmed the street march to NO WHERE -that she posted on face book- just a lot of noisy chants (From the River to the Sea , etc) literally marching no where .
An addendum of thoughts: The threats of a genocide bubbling beneath the surface, always there, are like the non-too subtle messagse on these T-shirts (from 2010).
Mujahideen is the plural form of mujahid (Arabic: مجاهد), the term for one engaged in Jihad. Right up there with Intifada NYC. No hidden meanings? puhlease…
And leading the way, t-shirt wise, in 2007, was the infamous Intifada NYC
The “Paleo” Terror Wave and the Third Intifada may be here, encouraged by the horrific How to Kill a Jew video. Disturbing events, these horrid, hateful anti-Israel rallies. They should be sent to the dust bin of history, their LIES exposed by film makers like Pierre Rehov who dedicates himself to exposing those lies. Recently Rehov made available these two important videos.
FROM THE RIVER TO THE SEA: A Call For Genocide
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.
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 heard by those willing to listen. And seen.
Putting an END to the Third Intifada is our goal.
WE CAN NOT REMAIN SILENT.
