Protest OUTSIDE NY Times for blatant Anti-Semitic Cartoons

April 29, 2019 . 5:30 pm OUTSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES. A protest holding the New York Times RESPONSIBLE for publishing this offensive anti-Semitic cartoon that appeared over the weekend in the International edition of the NY Times. (The Times’s international edition often publishes political cartoons, while the domestic edition does not.)


The cartoon depicted President Trump as a blind man wearing a yarmulke and being led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  – in the shape of a seeing eye dog wearing a collar adorned by a blue star of David. (May 1: The New York Times claims to have canceled its contract with CartoonArts International)

As for the cartoon: It was drawn by António Moreira Antunes, a Portuguese cartoonist and originally published in Expresso, a newspaper in Lisbon, before being picked up by CartoonArts International, the cartoon syndicate. (The editor from The Times’s Opinion section who decided to publish the cartoon has not been named.)

 BUT, then, on Sunday …  another anti-Semitic cartoon. This was drawn by Norwegian cartoonist, Roar Hagen. Netanyahu was dressed as Moses holding a stone tablet taking a selfie; once again raising doubts about the paper’s judgement. [link]

SHAME ON THE NY TIMES!!

The protestors expressed outrage over the newspaper’s publishing of an anti-Semitic cartoon by waving Israeli flags and holding signs saying “NY Times feeds Jew Hatred” and NY (slimes) Has Blood On Its Hands.

The protest was lead by a number of Jewish organizations [The Coalition for Jewish Concerns, Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI), and a coalition of other organizations, such as JDL-NY]

With an impressive roster of speakers that included Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Prof. Alan Dershowitz, Rabbi Elie Abadie. They called for the firing of editors and individuals responsible for these outrageous cartoons. They also prayed for the victims of the San Diego synagogue shooting. 

Video the crowd of protestors:

Video Dov Hikind:

The NY Times has a 120 year old campaign of slander and bias against Israel and the Jews and even though the Times attempted to lay the blame for the cartoon on one careless editor, the entire newspaper and its owners are responsible.

Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon said: “The words, the demonstrators and the cartoons turn into shootings against worshipers in synagogues.

Update on May 5, 2019, proving words and cartoons do matter: Israel has been under constant attack by Hamas terrorists since Shabbat. Over 500 missiles have launched by Hamas terrorists targeting Israeli civilians. Three Israelis have been killed. Over 100 have been injured. Silence from the United Nations. No condemnations. Nothing. 

The shameful record of the N.Y.Times giving unswerving  support to the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel Congressional trio of Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Rashida Tlaib  reinforces that silence is no longer an option. We must actively combat the rising anti-Semitism in America and world wide. It must not be ignored. SILENCE IS NOT THE ANSWER.

SHAME ON THE NY TIMES! People must be fired.

New York City Hall Presser: “Zionists do not represent NY Jews”

April 2, 2019 – 4:30 pm. NYC Hall Presser, Orthodox Jews say: “Zionists do not represent NY Jews. Anti-Zionism is NOT Anti-Semitism!

Perhaps they expected a lot of press due to the anti-Israel media ledes that dominate the headlines: Israel. Bad. Racists. However, once Councilman Yeger was removed from the Immigration Committee, the press was absent. Those present were moi, the JDL-NY and eventually two very late cameramen. Oh, wait! There was also ONE hijabbed Muslima blogger.

JDL- NY was there, too, with the message: No Such Thing as PALESTINE.

We will NOT be Silenced! Israel We Stand With You!

From JDL-NY :

“NYC Councilman Yeger responded to a tweet last week with the facts- “Palestine does not exist” & “Omar is an anti Semite”. Since that hundreds of anti Semites & anti-Israel organizations have attempted to discredit him. He was removed from the Immigration Committee yesterday.

None of the organizations or individuals condemning Councilman Yeger & demanding for his removal, have demanded any actions against Omar. A news conference is scheduled to take place today April 2nd
organized by Rabbi Hershel Klar to continue the condemnations
against NYC Councilman Yeger.

We are calling for all people of good conscious to join us to condemn the witch-hunt against a Jewish elected official. Omar remains on the Foreign Affairs Committee after numerous blatantly anti-Semitic tweets. She must be removed! Anti-Semitism is NOT okay. We can not be silent!”

Propaganda’s Use of Palestine

“During the last few centuries, the world, Christians included, has fallen into a bad habit. We have bought into some early Roman propaganda. We have used the name Palestine, which Roman Emperor Hadrian placed on the country of Israel in 135 A.D., for so long that it has become common usage. This would be as incorrect as calling the Russia of today the “Soviet Union” or referring to Berlin as “East Germany.” The thoughts below by our ministry’s senior theologian, Dr. Thomas S. McCall, completely explore the subject. If you know somebody who’s fallen into this habit, please share this article with them.”

Does Palestine Exist  – Front Page Mag

“Two weeks ago, a local New York City Councilman named Kalman Yeger noted on Twitter that “Palestine does not exist.” That statement, controversial as it is, is grounded in fact — in the sense that the United Nations Security Council, the only UN body capable of establishing international law through binding resolutions, has never conferred legal status to “Palestine,” and never accepted “Palestine” as a UN member state.”

All should be deeply offended  by these misguided flyers.

An anti-Zionist statement from the presser:

“We are against Zionism because we are Jews!” “The State of Israel is the biggest misfortune for the Jewish people” “Thousands of young Orthodox Jews are tortured in Israeli prisons because they are not willing to serve in the Israeli !” “We want to live in peace with all. We want to live in peace with our neighbors & respect EVERYONE no matter his color or creed!’ [https://twitter.com/TorahJews]

See short Flickr Slide show

twitter announcement

And  two short videos: at first, it looked as though the presser was only in Hebrew ,which certainly limited getting their message out.

Later, in a 12 minute speech (in English) references to the “teachings of  Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and  founder of the Satmar Hasidic movement in 1961 (Book  Vayoel Moshe)

“Teitelbaum argues that Zionism is incompatible with Judaism. As Teitelbaum explains in the introduction, the book’s title is taken from the biblical verse of Exodus 2:21, and hints to Teitelbaum’s first name (Yoel), and to his grandfather, Moshe Teitelbaum. The verse, which states “And Moses agreed to stay…an alien in a foreign land”, hints to Teitelbaum’s conclusion that the Jewish people should remain in exile.[1]

They claim that THEY are Torah Jews.

PALESTINE letter 1947 ( I think it actually makes OUR case that Palestine refers to the JEWS.)

In video at 6:20 : “Letter from Chief Rabbi Jerusalem re Palestine Problemand the Jewish people . The Holy land and the Gates of Palestine were to be open to all those Jews who have no home, to lead Jewish lives in accordance with the commandments. But, he was OPPOSED to a Jewish State.”

At 8:38Re inflammatory remarks from any one in public office ” (remarks) … are totally unacceptable (so) Councilman is way over due to apologize to Councilwoman Omar – to orthodox Jews . Otherwise, you should resign from your post to heal the deep wounds. We ask for peace and tranquility worldwide …  a day of global peace when there won’t be any wars. Any bloodshed. Any animosity. The entire universe, all the nations should serve one G-d in harmony and peace, omein”

“Inflammatory remarks from any one in public office” … and yet the ONLY person he mentions is Councilman Yeger.

See quotes from Congresswoman Omar that are INFLAMMATORY as she addressed CAIR: “Someone did something on 911.”

In conclusion, Rabbi Shulem Lefkowitz speaking in a post presser release:

“The Rabbinical Alliance of the USA, a group representing Orthodox Jews from Brooklyn neighborhoods, held a press conference on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, on the steps of City Hall in Manhattan, regarding recent statements by Brooklyn councilman Kalman Yeger, who recently ignited a conflict with his comment that “Palestine does not exist”, thereby making an impression that Jews have Zionist interests.

“Over the decades, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a long chain of both, a violent one and a war of words,” said Rabbi Hershel Klar, an organizer of the event. “Now Councilman Yeger has unfortunately brought this war of words to our own Brooklyn neighborhood of Borough Park, giving the impression that religious Jews, his constituents, are interested in adopting the Zionist narrative and creating friction with our neighbors.

Jews and Zionists could not be more different. 
Jews are commanded to live peacefully in their countries during  exile, while Zionists wish to conquer land and oppress other people.
The Zionists, both leaders in the State of Israel and their supporters here in America, do not represent the Jewish people.

“Yeger deepened his offensive comments by leveling the accusation of anti-Semitism against a member of Congress, Ilhan Omer, who has been critical of the State of Israel and its supporters.

The Zionist approach of accusing their critics of being anti-Semitic is wrong.
Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism.
Judaism and Zionism are diametrically opposed.
Judaism is a religion to be subservient to the Almighty, while Zionism is a transformation into a political nationalist movement.

In fact, Judaism forbids a sovereign Jewish State since the destruction of the Jewish temple.Likewise, Judaism forbids Jews to wage wars, provoke conflict, or oppress any nation or peoples.

We Jews have always lived in the utmost peace and regard alongside our neighbors in all countries of our exile. We respect our government leaders and fulfill the commandment of Jeremiah 29:7, ‘Seek the welfare of the city to which I have exiled you and pray for it to G-d.’

The Zionist protagonists do not speak in our name.
It’s against Jewish law and tradition.

Kalman Yeger’s comments don’t represent the Brooklyn Jewish community. Numerous leading Rabbis have condemned him. This is not what we elected him for.

We need our politicians to keep our streets and parks clean and safe, and to advocate for services for our neighborhoods and schools, and not to drag our communities into the Zionist agenda.

We call upon Yeger to retract his comments.”

NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

CAIR Rally Against “Islamophobia” Times Square

[face book]

After covering the poorly attended Kirsten Gillibrand’s “I’m running for President” Rally, headed to Times Square (47 th st and Bdway) and the very predictable CAIR “Rally Against ISLAMOPHOBIA”. This too was not the attendance expected, but definitely better than Gillibrand’s big fail.

The Muslim signs, and the speeches, were laden with Hate, Racism and Victim Mania. Pretending to be anything but what they actually were: racists masquerading as victims. The big lie of the day, CAIR is LOVE. White America is HATE!

The Racism and Xenophobia Rally was hosted by “Majlis Ash-Shura, Islamic Leadership Council of New York, Muslim American Society – New York (MAS-NY), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC), Arab American Federation (AAF), and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, New York (CAIR-NY).”

They claimed that this  rally and march “showcased the solidarity of New Yorkers against the ideology of hatred” most recently manifested in the New Zealand terror attacks that left 50 fatalities. There was a recruitment call for “action and unity” to push back against growing Islamophobia, white supremacy and anti-immigrant bigotry in America …  and around the world.”

Once again they claimed that the people gathering at AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) represented the worst in humanity, not the best. In speech after speech, we were told that Muslims and their supporters are the BEST of humanity.

Video 1:AIPAC, Zionism Times Sq CAIR sponsored “Islamophobia” Protest”- 2 male speakers this video – excerpted. (They think the MEDIA is their enemy)

First male Speaker ranted on and on about victims and the so-called war on terror, Islamophobia, anti-black and brown racism and ZIONISM … massacres … Guided missiles fired by racists. the Victims in New Zealand no different than the victims of the Gaza Freedom March of Return. And before that the 10s of thousands of people of Palestine. The million plus people in Iraq. The 100s of thousands in Afghanistan. All victims of this system of oppression and injustice…we must call out those who commit the crimes AND the powers behind them. The AIPAC conference … from Palestine to Mexico all the walls have got to go.

Second male Speaker: …. 300 million dollars a year to Israel to build walls against Palestinians …. if you support this you are not in solidarity with the Muslim community. … We are not coming here as peaceful Muslims, we are coming here as Muslims who demand justice. We demand our rights. We demand our god given rights ….. the Constitution … all the oppressed people of the world. We cannot cower. we cannot hide our identity. the people who have spread this bigotry. who are complicit. From the media, CNN. NY Times. who propagate hate.

Video 2:  Muslim Prayer  Times Sq CAIR Rally against Islamophobia

We hear a Muslim prayer to allah, with a look at the crowd and signs; with lots of takbir (allah is greater) – allah akbar (allah is greater) inshallah (if allah wills to happen) and Jalla jalālahu (his glory be glorified) and WE WANT JUSTICE. WE WANT PEACE.

Video 4 – White Supremacy, Muslim censorship & David Weprin
            [50 Muslims were killed simply for being alive. It’s not okay.]

“White supremacy  and Islamophobia is an enemy we cannot see.  It is something very subtle that happens in our interactions every single day.  You have to remember the enemy is the White Man with a gun it is also the institutions that uplifted and empowered that man. It is the media. To allow him a voice. He published before hand what he was going to do, but of course censorship only happens when MUSLIMS want to raise their voices.

The 24th Assemblyman, David Weprin (looking lost in Muslim Prayers- Oct 19, 2018)  She says, “Allies (like Weprin) are important”

Weprin: ” I have the largest mosque in NYC – the Jamaica Muslim Center  in my district. I was there after the New Zealand tragedy in solidarity, identifying with my Muslim brothers and sisters. Albany declared yesterday Pakistan Day in the State of NY. He and Jon Liu have the religious garb bill they expect to get past the Senate this year; prohibits discrimination against hijabs employment, promotion, in PRIVATE. For wearing religious garbs  like HIJABS. It’s very important to our sisters in the Muslim community. Discrimination for wearing hijabs is very subtle. Employers with uniforms can discriminate against our sisters in the Muslim community. And that’s outrageous! I’m optimistic that the bill will pass for the first time …and become law.”

Video 4 – Rise and Resist Comrade, Travis Morales of Refuse Fascism (and Bob Avakian apostle) in Aug 2017 holding mic:

Morales: “They’re the sickness. They’re sick people. There’s a sickness going on. There’s a group of people that are very sick.” That is what Trump said about Muslims. He gave an O.K. to that murder. Trump said he would very closely look at the closing of mosques in this country. That was an okay to this murder in New Zealand. The Blood is on his hands. On this whole system of Capitalism and Imperialism. He has blood on his hands. …whether Democrat or Republican who supports Israel. This country was founded on slavery and genocide. They put black people in this country in chains. What kind of system does this? It’s a system that cannot be reformed. A system that must be over thrown. 

WE ARE REVOLUTION.  The Communist party. We have the strategy and the leadership for a REAL revolution.  If you’re not down for revolution, we still gotta come together. We have to unite to drive out this Trump-Pence regime.  Refusefascism.org- we have a strategy. To start with thousands of people in the major cities…growing every day … growing to hundreds of thousands and  millions til our demands are met: The Trump /Pence regime must go. In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a Fascist America. Driving out this regime as soon as possible.”

Video 5 & 6 – Speaker 1, a Jeanine Piro tirade, brotherhood demands change the Constitution .

“A salaam alaikum. We want to send a message to the powers that be …. to understand … that we are ONE Brotherhood. Whatever hurts any of us brothers anywhere on the planet hurts all of us. Want to read something that took place on Fox News, a statement by Jeanine Piro attacking Congresswoman Omar for wearing hijab. She said, “Think about it …  hijab.  Is this indicative of her adherence to the sharia law … which is unethical to the United States Constitution.”

This is pure bigotry for wearing of the hijab. It’s not a contradiction to the Constitution. It is something the women do out of purity. If purity is against the Constitution, then maybe we need to talk about changing the Constitution. (cheers/whistles)

I want to demand that this woman never be allowed to be on Fox News again. (cheers) And if the President of the United States backs what she said, then he’s a bigot too. We gotta a lot of work to do. We must stand together. We must be resolved. We must be strong in our resistance. May Allah give us the strength … inshallah …. a salaam alaikum”

Speaker 2 – CAIR NY Exe Dir, Afaf Nasher begins at 2:31

“(we see in studies) that 268 right wing extremists prosecuted in Fed Court,  not under the terrorist law that should have applied to them, but under other laws. No surprise, because 80% of narratives in the media that portray Muslims, is a negative portrayal. Do we understand …  the systemic racism that we see. (click pic to enlarge)


Malcolm X warned us. He told us to be careful. He told us the newspapers will have you hating the people that are being oppressed, and have you loving the people who are doing the oppression. These relentless messages of dehumanization and hatred that creates this animosity; that emboldens the extremists with hatred and attacks and murders and massacres. And these Islamophobes keep pedaling the idea that terrorism is by one people.
But we know… that terrorism has no religion. We understand that terrorism is antithetical to faith, antithetical to god’s mercy; antithetical to god’s love. It is antithetical to god’s peace. It is antithetical to compassion and justice.  Together, if we stand shoulder to shoulder we can defeat the racism and the hatred that is sweeping through our country and the world. (cheers)  We have the responsibility to challenge the media; to challenge racism To challenge Islamophobia, xenophobia, white supremacy. I am hopeful that we can  illuminate the very darkest corners of hate. Hopeful, that if we stand together, we can shut down those politicians who spew hate with our votes. Hopeful that we can shutdown the mega corporations who use their platforms to spew hate … Hopeful that as citizens, as friends, as neighbors we can create our own narrative,  a TRUTHFUL narrative.  One that recognizes and affirms the dignity of every single human being. We together, as New Yorkers and as family in this world of humanity, hopeful that if we have this responsibility, that we can shoulder with success and LOVE and dignity. That we can protect one another and create a legacy that is rooted in a common cause for justice, equality, compassion for all. That is you and me together. Now let me hear you. Can we do it? (cheers) Do we love one another? (yes) Will we shut down hate? (yes) Will we take our dollars else where when somebody seeks to profit through division? (yes) Will we VOTE and get those politicians OUT who want to divide us? (yes) Are we committed? (yes)  Are we dedicated? (yes) Will we show up day after day (yes) My brothers and my sisters …  I feed off your determination … we will bring it to the next generation. Inshallah.”

The JDL-NY was there. They managed (against the amplification) to speak the truth over the din.

They managed to balance the message.

Even though the police weren’t all that helpful (see video)

Video 7 –  Because JDL yelled, police claim “combative”

JDL-NY, while marching around the AMPLIFIED protest, was informed by a NYPD legal rep (it’s difficult to HEAR him because the amplified “Say it Loud, Say it Clear” was SO LOUD) that they could not yell. JDL agreed, “They stay in their area, we stay right here.” Not good enough. The NYPD legal accuses them of being combative because they were yelling [unamplified]. He said, the sidewalks would be closed, the JDL moved, if they continued to yell. And then, a very loudly amplified prayer was heard for blocks.

BTW- off camera I mentioned to the officer that the NYPD failed to follow through on these rules at our #CancelSarsour Protest/Rally on May 25, 2017. [Listen to the videos – says it all] Of course, since he claims to have not been there, he can’t address our claim. However, when you look at this picture from May 25, 2017, sure looks like the same officer. Obviously, the rules change depending on who is in charge.

crowd 1

IN CONCLUSION: The media will be praising Gillibrand and defending CAIR as victims of “Islamophobia”. Even our NYPD legal guy, put on the street to control potential confrontations, is snookered. Clearly the LEFT/Muslim factions are coddled. WE are not. EXAMPLE FOLLOWS:

Patriots marching on the sidewalks with signs with unamplified voices. It’s allowed. In NYC, these are the rules:  Keep moving. Nothing amplified (FYI- musical instruments, drums, whistles are not amplified). The Left, whenever countering patriots, knows these rules and always marches round and round,  chanting and blowing whistles (sometimes not even marching. Just standing still) .We have suffered these offensive actions by the Commies and friends when they wish to rain on our rallies. AND the police LET them. We used to accept being separated by blocks from the rallies on the Left. No more. We, too, now march around. Keep moving and using our unamplified voices to respond to what we see and hear. But, this day we were put ON NOTICE. Our voices were COMBATIVE. If we spoke up, the NYPD would close the sidewalks. If we did not march  silently, they would remove us.  BECAUSE the CAIR rally had the permit which included not just the street but BOTH public sidewalks. For comparison: see our Geller/Spencer protest against Linda Sarsour . The NYPD did NOTHING to remove the leftists from our staging area. The NYPD – whom we support- sadly, they do not support us.

“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.

Elbit Systems – the parent company of Everysight – is Israel’s largest weapons manufacturer. They make weaponized drones, sniper ammunition, surveillance equipment for the separation wall and the U.S.-Mexico border, and other tools of killing and repression.” [Face Book

“Elbit has taken their death and destruction tools mainstream by selling Everysight Raptor cycling glasses …  the glasses use the same technology Elbit provides for fighter jets enabling the killing of countless numbers of civilians in Gaza.”


The COUNTER PROTEST  was led by JDL-NY
The JDL was there to counter the LIES . The Propaganda. Informing the passersby that this The location was chosen because b8ta sells Everysight Raptor cycling glasses …  while the manufacturing company also makes products that the IDF uses.” [how dare they!]

“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. Their faux “tikkun olam” is evident by their protests and anti-Israel rhetoric. [Face Book]

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

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)

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.
