“No Art for ApARTheid’s Sake” vs the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

No Art for ApARTheid’s Sake’. Protest Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. [Face Book]

On February 3,  2019, New York’s Carnegie Hall hosted an outrageously expensive fundraising brunch for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO), followed by an IPO concert performance. Tickets for the IPO brunch started at $1000. Protest the Israel Philharmonic was hosted by Adalah-NY

New York human rights advocates gathered in a noisy, musical protest in front of Carnegie Hall to demonstrate against an extravagant fundraising brunch and performance by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO). The IPO website proudly states that the Orchestra “represent[s] the State of Israel across the world.” [Mondo Weiss]

Adalah-NY

It’s gonna be a nice warm day in the 🌞40s!!!🌞 – perfect for protesting the Israel Philharmonic’s fundraising brunch! We’ll have our own ☕️anti-apartheid brunch☕️ with Palestinian pastries and music from the Rude Mechanical Orchestra! 🎺💓🎷So come on over to Carnegie Hall at 1 p.m. and bring your friends!

BDS is being attacked in Congress! Please support this and other such demonstrations if you can.

…. tell the IPO that music should be for liberation not whitewashing occupation!

“As the IPO’s wealthy supporters attend a lavish brunch inside to sustain its whitewashing of Israeli apartheid, we’ll be outside sustaining our love of justice with a small Palestinian brunch and music for liberation with the big freedom sounds of the Rude Mechanical Orchestra.”

“The IPO is no apolitical cultural institution.” Israel systematically deprives Palestinians of their basic rights, whether they live under Israeli military occupation, as unequal citizens in Israel, or as refugees, denied their right of return to their homeland.”

“Our protest responds to the Palestinian civil society call to boycott cultural institutions like the IPO that are complicit in sustaining Israel’s apartheid rule over the Palestinian people.” [Face Book]

American Socialists Rally to Free Ahmad Sa’adat and all “Palestinian” prisoners!

Jan 15, 2019. Washington Sq. Protestors lead by Samidoun gathered in Washington Sq ranting about “Palestinian” prisoner Ahmad Sa’adat. However, it was “Palestine” that put this guy, Sa’adat, in prison followed by Israeli incarceration. But, ONLY Israel is the bad guy. Sa’adat is a VICTIM of the Israeli OCCUPIERS, not “Palestine”

These protestors are more about spewing their anti-Jewish, anti-Israel agit-prop [If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes PALESTINE] and less about these prisoners who deserve incarceration.

The Samidoun mantra: “We urge you to join us for an International Week of Action between January 15 and 22, 2019 to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners!” [samidoun] ….. “US” refers to their comrades:Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) is a national organization of revolutionaries fighting for socialism in the United States. Our home is in the working class.”[FRSO]

UPDATE: Thank you President Trump for your SOTU speech. Thank you for stating that the United States will NEVER be a Socialist country.  But, revolutionaries like the FRSO will never stop subverting America. As unimportant as a protest like this may seem, the American Socialists know every protest is an opportunity to gain new recruits.

Short video of the protest next:

The JDL-NY (Jewish Defense League) was there supporting Israel while the soc/commie/leftists falsely claimed Israel to be an occupier. [The Judea, Samaria,West Bank controversy:wiki]

[Jerusalem Post] “There was never a Palestinian state nor political entity that belonged to the Palestinians. Historically, Judea and Samaria, commonly known as the West Bank, belongs to the Jewish people.

According to the evolution of international agreements from 1917 until 1947, the land of Israel was divided into three states:  Jordan, which is east of the Jordan River, and a Jewish and Arab state to share the land west of the Jordan River.

This painful compromise shrunk the size of Israel by over 75% but the Arabs refused launching a war of aggression against the re-established state of Israel in 1948. Jordan occupied the area of Judea and Samaria and illegally annexed it.

It should be emphasized that the Palestinians never claimed to establish a Palestinian state following the Jordanian annexation (…) they wanted to establish an Arab state instead of the state of Israel, the land they previously refused and consequently lost in the 1948 war.” [Jerusalem Post]

In Conclusion: The Samidoun “Palestinian” Prisoner Solidarity Network claims “the ‘Palestinian’ Authority kidnapped Sa’adat under false pretenses and imprisoned him for four years … before its prison was attacked by  the Israeli “occupation” …  leading to the repeated “imprisonment” of “Palestinians” for their political involvement by the PA. The JDL-NY does not suffer these lies quietly.


Love those double-sided signs

After a violent attack on the PA’s Jericho prison in 2006 (…) Sa’adat was sentenced to 30 years in prison; convicted in an Israeli military court of leading a prohibited organization and “incitement.

“Sa’adat is a leader in the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and the Palestinian national liberation movement (…) He stands alongside nearly 6,000 fellow Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails (…) he is a symbol of Palestinian, Arab and internationalist resistance to capitalism, racism, apartheid and colonization.”

 “As long as it continues to exist, Israel will be a prison for the Palestinian people. But the day of liberation is coming and we can help bring it closer. (Soc/Commie instigator, Joe Catron)

“Join us in a collective call for the freedom of Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian Prisoners. Join us to build the global grassroots campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions from Israel and complicit corporations. Join us to fight for an end to aid and support for the Israeli occupation that has been confiscating land and lives for over 70 years.”

 The Lies. The never ending Jew-hating lies. Still.

Two opposing Women’s March Rallies same day in NYC Jan 19, 2019

January 19, 2019. NYC. Two opposing “Women’s March” rallies were scheduled. This was the UNITY rally lead by extreme leftists; progs, socialists, racists and anti-Semites. They gathered in Foley Square to denounce all things “Trump”; while proclaiming to the world that only they represent “true diversity and unity“.

However, reading the New Women’s March Manifesto Includes Support for Anti-Israel Agenda says it all : DIVISION is their mantra.


The anti-Jewish, hate-mongering sponsors at Foley Sq. were led by Louis Farrakhan-linked, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Sarsour’s Arab American Association. 

The JDL-NY counter-protestors loudly denounced the racism and hatred that was spewed from the stage, boldly challenging the do-gooder fraud of diversity and unity.

“About a half-dozen counter-protesters stood across the street and screamed “Jew haters!” and held signs saying “The Farrakhan March.” [NY Post]

Agunda Okeyo , the director of Women’s March NYC, a Pan-African New Yorker was the first speaker. We applaud her for leading the charge!

We applaud Laura Loomer who appeared on-stage as Okeyo  began reading a list of names. Loomer looked at first like any photographer taking a crowd-shot. [so I looked down – doh!] I failed to catch Laura as she began to shout at the crowd.

“Keynote speaker and filmmaker Agunda Okeyo was interrupted when right-wing activist Laura Loomer, who is Jewish, crashed the stage and tried to commandeer the mic, shouting, “What about the Jews?” “The women’s march hates Jews!” she shouted repeatedly. “Linda Sarsour’s a Jew hater! Tamika Mallory’s a Jew Hater!” she hollered as she was led away by security. “I thought Jewish women were invited! I came to your party!” [NY Post]


Please note, Loomer was herded off the stage by a Muslima and Muslim-male advocate, Murad Awawdeh.  He is VP of Advocacy and “prez” of a Muslim voters advocacy group, Yalla Brooklyn.

Caught site of feminist,  Gloria Steinem, watching Loomer’s exit from the bottom of stairs.


VIDEO of Okeyo getting “Loomered”

Even though ONE renegade Leftie held a sign professing support for Israel, her sign went against the published position held by this Farrakhan-sponsored Women’s Movement.


Found more outrageous Sarsour agit-prop, “Sarsour Posts Article Claiming Jews Waging War on Black People“. The lies piled on for all the silly progressives to dine-on.


Anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, the racist  New York Immigration Coalition  all promised to highlight the women-of-color leadership, (Sarsour, BTW. was a NYC no-show, opting for DC instead)

Of course, the anti-Jewish women’s march wouldn’t be complete without anti-Semites traitors like Jewish Voice for Peace.— See [Facebook]  and [Face book]


“Join the Jewish Contingent for the Women’s Unity Rally hosted by Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City. We will rally against racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, colonialism, and violence. We will fight for the empowerment of women and girls, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQI equality, and Palestinian liberation.
Join this contingent of inter-generational, diverse, loud, progressive, Jewish New Yorkers”

JDL – NY was there to EDUCATE the passersby with NEVER AGAIN; challenging the hypocrites at JVP who support BDS. [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions]

The  Jewish Voice For Peace “progressives” continue with: “We stand against  … the false accusations of anti-Semitism so often used to divide us as women, Jews, and activists for transformational justice. We will stand together against rising fascism and we will create a more just world with safety and liberation for all.” [JVP Face Book]

They met to share songs and prayers for Shabbat, at 9:30 am that morning, led by Rabbi Ellen Lippmann, Rabbi Amichai Lau Lavie, and Rabbinic Student Mackenzie Reynolds before the rally began at 10:00am.

++ Over and over we were told, the Women’s March NYC, is a group led by women of color activists and their allies from across New York; celebrating the progress we’ve made over the last two years and the work that lies ahead.”

“In response to the Trump Administration’s continued assault on immigrant communities and communities of color, the march includes a coalition of grassroots & labor orgs who celebrate ALL women!”  [Action Network]

“The Women’s March Movement” claims they were born out of frustration over Trump’s 2016 election.” I guess they were. But, YOU LOST, so GET OVER IT!


Commie-Babe, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, spoke after I left. No matter, who ever speaks and wherever they speak, they all belly-ache the same tropes over and over:  Trumpers and Repubs are BAD.


Repetition is their friend. Conning the people through the ages. Breeding ignorance that continues to destroy generations.


These women below were giddy while sharing their abortion services.

Giddy while promoting genocide.

“If the BDS Jewish Jihadists were really concerned about Arabs, they should be speaking out about the murder, beatings, harassment and flight of Christian Arabs from Bethlehem, the birthplace of the Christian messiah.

WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! Protest Columbia University’s lack of protection for students supporting Israel (SSI)

October 4, 2018 (4:30 – 6:30 pm ) NY-JDL joined protest against Columbia University’s lack of protection for Students Supporting Israel. (SSI) [click picture for Flickr slide show]

DSC_8164

“Students Supporting Israel (SSI) have been harassed and intimated time and again. Columbia has done nothing to protect the pro-Israel students, and has shown apathy and total disregard for their safety.

All Columbia University students deserve protection! Freedom of speech for all! Members from Students Supporting Israel, Columbia’s chapter of Alums for Campus Fairness, faculty, and the local community have had enough. We demand fair and equal treatment by the administration!

Last semester SSI filed a detailed, thorough, and evidence-based complaint documenting our members’ harassment by anti-Zionist groups and individuals on campus, and of their clearly numbered violations of the CU Rules of Conduct. And yet, Columbia University has taken no action, summarily dismissed the complaint, and left its students without any protection from harassment and bullying. Since then, SSI submitted three more complaints, and the Columbia administration has failed to appropriately address any of them.

SSI has spoken with university administrators on numerous occasions, but all of their requests have fallen on deaf ears. It is time to show the university that we will not stand by quietly while SSI and other pro-Israel students are harassed and systematically silenced on its own campus.”
++
Unfortunately, they were ill-advised, practicing, rather than opposing, the type of censorship they had come out to protest.

They attempted to censor the NY-JDL. + I would suggest a new advisor+

A parent asked to speak to us re the reasons the students were protesting outside Columbia University’s gates, challenging the university’s  blatant anti-Semitism. I wonder, was she aware that the SSI students were guilty of censorship …  against the NY-JDL? Most unfortunate.

THEN, holding her supposedly BANNED children’s Book,” P is for Palestine“, was opportunist and HYPOCRITE: Golbarg Bashi.

Her book was banned? By whom? Where? When?

She was rude. Confrontational as she railed at the protestors in front of Columbia, particularly the NY-JDL.

Insisting the American people were afraid to know that Jesus Christ was born in PALESTINE, while hawking her P is for Palestine book to the passersby. BTW- Bashi “ is an atheist … an Iranian/Swede (born in Iran, raised in Sweden, and educated at the Universities of Manchester and Bristol and obtained her doctorate degree from Columbia University  and now a feminist professor of Iranian Studies at Rutgers University ) And definitely NOT pro-Israel.

[The Geller Report] A student group at Columbia University protested on Thursday against what it described as the administration’s tolerance of harassment directed at pro-Israel students […] This time I will no longer sit quietly and allow others to dehumanize my people and my community,”

“The administration is repeatedly failing to forcefully respond to antisemitism, and so it comes back worse and worse each time. A line needs to be drawn and it needs to be drawn now.” [The Geller Report]

Barnard College hosts anti-Israel panel “BREAKING BARS: Fighting Incarceration from the U.S. to Palestine”

Thursday August 2, 2018 (7:00 PM – 9:00 PM) Barnard College, New York City, the latest bastion of higher-ed to become a shameful conduit for anti-Israel animus.

They offered an intimate discussion between two groups on the front-lines —  fighting incarceration and supporting prisoners — one in Palestine, the other in the U.S. — and how we can understand these shared systems of domination and resist them.” [Algemeiner]

Addameer (Arabic for conscience), is a Ramallah-based outfit accused of ties with the “Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

Barnard chose to “Stand with ADDAMEER”, a “Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association” working for “political prisoners” held in Israeli and Palestinian prisons. “Addameer vs Israel“.

How much more “effed up” can our centers of education become?

The New JDL- NY was there, outside Barnard, in protest and to Stand With Israel.

“…. after a “difficult past semester” — during which Barnard students voted to endorse a divestment campaign against Israel in a referendum — “it is dismaying to see the College further used to discomfort members of its community.” [Algemeiner]

Barnard College, shame on you.

Addameer has called attempts to link it to the PFLP part of a “smear” campaign. According to Jewish Virtual Library, the PFLP has been involved in various suicide bombings, airplane hijackings and an assassination.” [Jewish Journal]


For more of the New  JDL protest, see Flickr slide show

DSC_7382

Addameer, according to NGO Monitor, has several members who are either currently in Addameer, or were formerly in the organization, that have extensive ties with the PFLP.

For instance, Addameer’s chairperson, Abdul-latif Ghaith, is currently in the midst of an Israeli travel ban due to his PFLP membership. Addameer vice-chairperson Khalida Jarrar was convicted of belonging to the PFLP and calling for violence against Israeli soldiers, serving prison time as a result.

Yacoub Odeh,an Addameer board member, was sentenced to life in prison for his PFLP membership and was only released as part of a prisoner exchange.

Barnard College to Host Prisoners’ Group Accused of Ties With Palestinian Terrorists

The speakers this evening were:

  • Lana Ramadan, Addameer’s International Advocacy Officer, was born in Dheisheh refugee camp, near Bethlehem in the West Bank. She’s worked with Badil Refugee Resource Centre and been active in community activities, such as Dabke. She studied Human Rights and International Law in the joint Al Quds University and Bard College program and has a Master in Human Rights from London School of Economics.
  • David Joseph Deutch, or DJ, Addameer’s Advocacy Coordinator, is a native of Australia who has worked with indigenous Australian youth, asylum seeker children, Amnesty International Australia and the UN in New York and Palestine. He is now Addameer’s Advocacy Coordinator. He studied Philosophy and Religious Studies at the University of Sydney and has a Master in Public Administration at Columbia University in New York.
  • Laura Whitehorn served 14+ years(of a 20 year sentence) in US federal prison as an “anti-imperialist political prisoner“. She was convicted for the “Resistance Conspiracy” case, which involved attacks on US and Israeli military installations and companies. [FYI- she BOMBED the headquarters of the Israeli Aircraft Industry right here in NYC]  In 2016, she was part of a delegation with other former “political prisoners”, labor organizers, and academics to Palestine.

Laura Whitehorn is a proud anti-Zionist Jew.  She was charged with conspiracy to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government by violent and illegal means

In the 60s, Whitehorn was active in the “civil rights” movement, supported the Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Movement, the New Afrikan Independence Movement and Puerto Rican IndependenceWhitehorn also lists fighting the KKK and organized white supremacy.

She advocates the creation of ANOTHER Islamic State – in the Middle East, those “BASTIONS of Equality!

The Adameer members at Barnard were joined by Release Aging People in Prison – RAPP ; Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City.

Release Aging People in Prison/RAPP works to end mass incarceration and promote racial justice by getting elderly and infirm people out of prison.

Links: Release Aging People in Prison – RAPP; Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City; Jewish Voice for Peace; Addameer Website; Face book; twitter

The Barnard fools and tools welcomed these terrorist organizations, presenting them as voices of reason and proclaiming “Incarceration to be a system of domination”.

The new Barnard school motto, perhaps: “Breaking Bars. RESIST! Resist! Resist!”

“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)

DSC_4791

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:

World

  • Oppose all U.S. wars, nuclear threats, sanctions, coups and bases
  • Fund Human Needs, Not Endless Wars


* Solidarity with oppressed peoples under attack at home and oppressed people all around the world [SpringAction2018.org]

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.

commies usa 1. jpg

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!”

Anti Israel Rally To Free Terrorist Ahed Tamimi and End IDF “Child Detention”

Dec 22, 2017 – NYC – 4:30 pm: The NY4″Palestine” Coalition  in Union Sq.

Joined by their Communist handlers in a typical anti-Israel (anti-America) protest to “Free Ahed Tamimi “and to end (what they claim) is IDF Child Detention.

The protest was led by many groups , including NYC Students for Justice in Palestine, Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, Al-Awda NY, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, American Muslims for Palestine, the International Action Center, the Palestinian Youth Movement, US Palestinian Community Network, the ANSWER Coalition, Labor for Palestine, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return, BAYAN USA, Stony Brook Students for Justice in Palestine, Workers World Party, Decolonize This Place, Adalah NY and Jewish Voice for Peace.


Participants included members of the Tamimi family living in New York.

Every year (they claim) nearly 700 Palestinian “kids”- like 18 years old Ahed –  are brought before Israeli military courts.  In the past several years (they claim) dozens of these “kids”  are jailed, under administrative detention order, without charge or trial.”

The New JDL – NY was there to counter the LIES :”Shirley Temper” is in jail. She’s 18 + should be tried as an adult. (watch the REAL Ahed in action)

What a vile human being. One can only imagine how reprehensible her parents must be to have raised such a disgusting, hateful brat. [more reportage on the protest from Samidoun]

And this from the vile Marxist,  Charlotte Kates December 24

The counter protest by the New JDL – NY was small, but their mere presence irritated the IAC (International Action Center) Commies and their “Pali” chums – a LOT!  (small pleasures)

FACTS:

Video 2 – Union Square

From U.N.Ambassador Nikki Haley, the truth; always inconvenient for the Marxist cabal. These insurgents have to be fools to support the Hamas Marxist Islamic terrorists or just plain scum. Either way, rolling over is NO Longer an Option.

BTW- familiar insurgents appear protest to protest. This obnoxious woman, in August 2017, was out for DACA. But, on the evening of Dec 22, she transferred  a very familiar tirade from DACA to the “Palis”.

Who is she? …. Still no name ….

Anti-Zionists Protest Israel Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall – again

October 25th, 2017, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) gave a concert & gala at Carnegie Hall.  This was fantastic, yes?

Nope. These anti-Israel / anti-Zionist groups did not agree.


They organized ANOTHER anti-Israel protest outside Carnegie Hall aimed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel. AGAIN.

Each year, anti-Zionists return to protest the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra [IPO]. (For previous IPO Carnegie Hall protests, follow links to 2011 and 2012.)

Fortunately, their lies and hateful anti-Semitism did NOT go unchallenged.

The Jewish Defence League and other Zionists were there to “Stand Up For Israel”, to “Stop the lies” and “Stop the hate!”


AM YISRAEL CHAI!

Some anti-Israel protest chants compliments of Adalah NY and the other anti-Zionists.

Protest musical accompaniment- OUTSIDE Carnegie – was provided by the eponymous, Rude Mechanical Orchestra. Facebook.

Adalah, however, remains OFFENDED the IPO representing the State of Israel across the world. “Let the IPO know that apartheid is out of tune.”


“It (the IPO)”, says Adalah, “serves as a cultural ambassador for the State of Israel, playing a public role in the official Israeli propaganda campaign. Brand Israel uses art and music to distract attention from Israel’s human rights ‘abuses’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the ‘Palestinian’ people.”

Adalah claims that, “the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is not an apolitical cultural institution.”

“We (Adalah and other anti-Zionists) are responding to the call from ‘Palestinian’ civil society to boycott cultural institutions that are complicit in Israel’s ‘systematic repression’ of the Palestinian people living under Israeli ‘military occupation’ in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as unequal citizens in Israel or as refugees denied their right of return to their homeland.”

BTW- Adalah (the protest host for the evening) was connected in 2007 to the infamous Intifada NYC T-shirt .


Former Brooklyn Principal, Debbie Almontaser, defended the t-shirts, telling the NY Post that “intifada” meant “shaking off”, that the shirts represented women “shaking off” oppression. …. Peace be upon you ….

And now, the REAL STORY behind the Israel Philharmonic and its ORIGINS:

“Since its inception in 1936, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra has been dedicated to presenting exceptional music to audiences in Israel and throughout the world. From its inaugural concert, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, world-renowned soloists and conductors have performed with the IPO.

On December 26, 1936, the Palestine Symphony played its first concert in Tel Aviv under the baton of Arturo Toscanini. A staunch anti-Fascist, the legendary conductor enthusiastically accepted Huberman’s request to join the Symphony as a demonstration against Nazism, declaring, “I am doing this for humanity.”

“The public reception to this inaugural performance was overwhelming, with crowds standing outside near the windows and even climbing on rooftops in an attempt to hear the Symphony. The ovation at the end of the night lasted over 30 minutes.”

 “The IPO is Israel’s foremost cultural ambassador and travels throughout the world, particularly to countries where there is little or no Israeli representation. In some cases, performances of the IPO are the only example of Israel’s existence.”

“The goodwill created by these tours, which included historic visits to Japan, Argentina, Poland, Hungary, Russia, China and India, is of enormous value to the State of Israel.”

Unfortunately, the anti-Israel protests never stop; good-will be damned.

NEXT WEEK, on Thursday, November 2,  I found two more anti-Israel events. FYI: November 2nd, 2017 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.

“At 5:30 pm, outside Israeli Embassy at 42nd St and 2nd Ave, a rally to “protest 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, to protest 100 years of colonization”, hosted by NYC Students for Justice in Palestine . The SJP claims that the Balfour Declaration was the first step toward the objective of political Zionism. [Face Book]

They will gather to protest the continued occupation of “Palestine” by Israeli Zionist forces.”
