March 1st, 2017 – RAIN- and Apartheid Week 2017 at Columbia University and its vile Apartheid WALL was getting rained-out. (little pleasures) March 3 was the last day of this annual week of hate and lies and with no rain predicted the next day, I headed for Columbia.
But, now it was WIND. (What’s next frogs and locusts?) Whatever, once I arrived, I rather enjoyed the low-impact caused by this inclement weather. The Wall of Hate had to lay flat on the ground. The visual impact was down to zero.
Oddly, after about 20 minutes, I was quizzed by a Columbia Media Relations Rep. Where was my press permit (really?) He begrudgingly let me stay an extra 15 minutes since I explained I was “hanging, hoping the wind would abate and the wall placed upright – for a better picture. I waited 15 minutes. 1 pm arrived; gusty winds still blowing so: No “Wall”.
Really there was nothing new to see. Never is. I’ve been following the NYC Apartheid Week since 2007. Been to one Apartheid Week offensive you’ve been to them all: the anti-U.S., anti-Israel, anti-Jewish message is deeply embedded and never grows dim. The annual event has grown from 2005 to 2017. Ever stronger, they hold court, spew their litany of lies eagerly accepted as FACT. NO opposition allowed.
If ONLY we could get equal time to counter their outrageous lies. If only our truth could be heard …. by open minds. If Only.
Feb 15, 2017. Grand Central NYC. A National “Day of ACTION aka Hate”.
Arranged by those lovable Fascists, the “NY Jewish Voice For Peace”.
Their face book instructions:, “Meet under the clock, 5;30 . Chants 6 PM. March to Trump tower 6:30” The commuters HATE this use and abuse of a public space. Jammed with thumb sucking Leftards.
(Flickr slide show of the action)
This was “Jerusalem,Israel” vs the BDS insanity of the NY Jews for “Peace”- during Rush Hour. Really. Now? Since the rush hour madness is in full swing. many commuters were aggressive – angry- their tone and body language said it all- as they did a perfunctory excuse me rushing for their trains.
Annoyed that they suffered this preachy knot of anti- Israel, anti- Trump, pro- Islamist FASCISTI. These are the hard-core militants who hate the America we love.
A short video as I took “a trip “around the Gordian knot- planted Stage Center.
Many, MANY police are pulled off the street to baby sit these insurgents – as they assemble and then marched from Grand Central to Trump Tower. Jew HATING is legal here. Not exaggerating. This is a very familiar crowd. They HATE-hate any thing and anyone that threatens their LEFTARD utopia. LOVE is NOT what they do best. Stir the revolution. That’s the ticket. RISE UP and march us all to the ovens. But LOVE — is just a word.
Hatred of Israel. Jews and America. Make no mistake. That is what they preach. That is what the Love. Smiles coming from the wicked-at-heart should send chills through your spine. If they win this battle for the hearts and minds of the masses. Be afraid. Be very afraid. ++
Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016 , 5:30 pm – NY’s Plaza Hotel A protest organized by Jewish Voice For Peace, co-sponsored by Code Pinkos and Adalah NY and joined by World Can’t Wait. The protestors ranted and chanted:
Irate that Netanyahu was receiving an award from the “right-wing” Hudson Institute, they marched in front of the hotel with their versions of Netanyahu’s awards.
“The 10-year, $38 billion military aid package signed between the two countries earlier the month and opposition to efforts to boycott Israel. ”
(Facebook photo by Neha Sood)
Three short videos:
The protestors carried smarmy signs like, “Natural Born Killers” (click on picture below to flip through slide show)
And banners that declared Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to be a WAR Criminal.
From the protest announcement:
“Come show the world that we do no see these individuals as heroes–but rather as criminals. Come show these war criminals that New Yorkers of conscience will not stand by while they prance around our city and pat each other on the back for their misdeeds. We will present “Bibi” with our OWN awards–ones that expose his crimes and vile behavior”
Join us as we raise our voices against Netanyahu’s regime of human rights abuses. Come show the world that New Yorkers of conscience do not welcome Netanyahu. We will present him with our own award, one that sheds light on the rights violations of the Israeli government.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was booed and met with cries of ‘Free Palestine’ after going to watch the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton”.
Melanie Colton tweeted: ‘At Hamilton… two women entered the Richard Rodgers Theater screaming, ‘Free Palestine!’ They were “escorted” out of the theatre after trying to shove their way through Netanyahu’s heavy security.
And then came RAMADAN 2016 (June 5th to July 5) On Wednesday, June 8, 2016 (the day before the “Shame on Cuomo” protest) Jihadis MURDERED innocent people sitting in a restaurant in Tel Aviv. In celebration, Muslims shared candies, laughing, smiling, cheering for this ‘successful’ act of terrorism.
Hamas has praised the attack … Fireworks were set off in Gaza and Hebron in celebration of the attack.
Some Palestinian citizens in East Jerusalem and Tulkarm started to celebrate the event by handing out candies … Jpost reported that Salma al-Jamal, a Palestinian news anchor working at Al-Jazeera TV, wrote on Twitter: “The Ramadan operation is the best answer to stories about ‘peace process’ that some people are trying in vain to revive.”
On Thursday, June 9, 2016. The “Shame on Governor Cuomo“ protest gathered outside the NY Governor’s Manhattan office building. Soc/Commie/Progs, many anti-Israel Jews, were angry.
Very angry that the Governor had signed an executive order against the BDS movement.
Jewish Voice for Peace, a social justice group that co-organized the protest, blasted Cuomo’s executive order as an unconstitutional “attempt to repress the growing movement for Palestinian rights.”
“I am signing an Executive Order that says very clearly we are against the BDS movement,” Cuomo tweeted on Sunday.
About the BDS bill: “Gov. Cuomo’s executive order – the first of its kind signed by a governor – demands that a list of businesses supporting BDS directly or indirectly be drawn up over the next six months.”
“In New York, we lead by example. We are also a place of action. We want to take immediate action because we want Israel to know that we are on their side,” the governor said …
[…] A wave of anti-BDS legislation has been introduced, and in some cases passed, in Congress and in state legislatures across the country, including South Carolina, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, California, Indiana, and Virginia.”
“This order sends the message that this state will do everything in its power to end this hateful, intolerant campaign. New York and Israel share an unbreakable bond and I pray that the Israeli and Palestinian people will find a way to live side by side and find peace, prosperity, and security,” he said.
Next, videos and slideshows. A look at the “Shame On Cuomo” protestors and the stalwart opposition.
A confident pro-Israel counter-protest,comprised of AFSI (Americans For A Safe Israel) and JCC Watch members, were a very vivid presence.
[scroll through a 4 page PDF handout from anti-BDS counter-protest,” How Progressive are We When we are Supporting Or Promoting Hatred of Jews?“]
The “Thank You Gov Cuomo” counter-protest infiltrated the sidewalk maize of Lefties, their THANK YOU Governor signs held high over the crowd.
They walked within the gridlocked Commie-circle of bodies that was thickest at the entrance to the office building (of course).
The Commies pretended to co-operate with the police who worked valiantly to keep them moving.
But, the well-rehearsed sidewalk blockage (“somehow”) did not get loosened …. while the drum, drum, drummer kept on drumming along.
Two Flickr Slideshows : The anti-Israel/PRO-BDS protestors
The counter-protest in support of Cuomo’s anti-BDS executive order.
RAMADAN 2016 [June 5-July 5] there have (already) … been Jihad murders… There will be many more …. as many Muslims [observing Ramadan] worldwide read the entire Qur’an … [it is a FACT that]
Jihad groups routinely and unanimously couch their appeals and justifications in Qur’anic terms.
… come out and shut down Bill de Blasio’s re-election fundraiser. A mayor who pushes Broken Windows policing, continued torture at Rikers, gentrification-lite and calls himself the ‘defender’ of Israel might choke on his champagne when he sees NYers aren’t falling for his ‘progressive’ mirage.
Mayor de Blasio’s thinking re-election this week with a fancy fundraiser gala at the Sheraton Hotel.”
Donations can go as high as $4,950 but the cost of shutting down this empty suit: priceless.
Almost two years into his administration we recognize how willing BdB is to sell out our communities by working hand in glove with developers, hospital executives and a racist police commissioner while using the language of social justice.
We want to make it clear that this so-called ‘progressive’ mayor is not only NOT our ally, but works against all of our collective interests:
– His support for Broken Windows policing – Giuliani-style crackdowns on the homeless – A continuation of the status quo at Rikers Island – Bloomberg-style selling out of NYCHA to private developers – An ‘affordable housing’ agenda real estate interests love.
– Proclaiming himself ‘defender’ of Israel, where he was last week.
“The return of Bill Bratton, welcomed back by the faux-progressive Mayor de Blasio, signaled a return and continuation of racist policing policies and philosophies that affect so many of the black, Latino and working class voters who voted for de Blasio.
Bratton’s racist and unproven Broken Windows theory continues to target the vulnerable New Yorkers de Blasio’s empty ‘Tale of Two Cities rhetoric promised to fight for.”
– New Yorkers Against Bratton
“The police continue to be purveyors of violence, and de Blasio continues to back them. The mayor made this clear when he chose to use taxpayer money to hire 1,300 new police officers instead of investing that money into needed social services like education and affordable housing. New York’s Black and Brown youth need better education and jobs not more police harassment!”
– People’s Power Assemblies
“BdB repeatedly rubber-stamps proposals made by his Department of Correction (DOC) Commissioner Ponte, the most recent of which include DOC and NYPD collaborating to conduct comprehensive background checks on visitors to Rikers Island [… ] Commissioner Ponte’s vision for NYC jails could potentially go unchecked, giving DOC free reign to implement “reforms” that perpetuate oppressive systems and promote practices that are dehumanizing and deemed torturous by U.N. standards.”
“Just as Bill de Blasio avidly supports the settler-colonial state of Israel, he also promotes imperialist and white supremacist policies within New York City […] In addition, through crackdowns on the homeless living in the streets of the city, plans for the privatization of the NYC Housing Authority, and the designation of Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), DeBlasio has continued to promote the interests of real estate developers and gentrifiers and has disregarded oppressed people all over the city who are being pushed out of their communities and out of New York City.”
“Did you guys know the occupy people are supporters of de Blasio?
How come so many of the groups are run by same people? Aren’t you guys getting tired of the same old thing that doesn’t work? Who are you? Please identify the organizers of the group. Why does every action have the same 30 people at it?
Why organize on Facebook? Don’t you know it’s an NYPD surveillance tool. How many of you are working with the groups started by people from the occupy “movement?”
The protest blocked the sidewalk in front of the Sheraton for a few hours. Oddly, the police never moved them to the ubiquitous ‘pens’.
++ PART TWO : Some of what I observed (pics and videos) at the Gala Crashing ++
(Place cursor on picture to see slideshow of pictures)
Part 1 of 3-The usual carousel of hateful, racist chants from the Commie hoards as they protested Mayor “Red Bill” deBlasio, NYPD Commissioner Bratton and (of course )Israel
Part 2 of 3 – The “Fakestinians” decided to deny free speech rights to moi – following me and blocking my camera. Made them even more insane when I stepped inside their sidewalk-blocking-circle to film Imani Henry’s Commie-blather. Silly little provocateurs…
Part 3 of 3-The usual chants from the Commie hoards as they protested Mayor “Red Bill” deBlasio, Israel, NYPD Commissioner Bratton and tragically their actions will most likely send the Central Park horses to the slaughter-houses in Mexico.
Their guy WON and NOW they don’t want him in office.
Seems “Red Bill” broke with the Party Plan when he sided with the City Council decriminalization proposal, “I agree with NYPD’s Bratton on ‘broken windows” – Yep. And now, they are very,very angry. How could Bill even think of siding with that ‘Nazi’, Bill Bratton.
Has “Red Bill” really become a ‘bad little commie?” Not likely. ‘Tis all part of the Commie-game. Make it look like there is division in-the-ranks – but the goals FOR ALL remain the same:
Among those notably absent at the Sheraton Times Square Thursday night were city Comptroller Scott Stringer and Public Advocate (of the Working Families Party) Letitia James, potential de Blasio rivals in 2017. Both instead attended the Queens Democratic Party’s annual dinner at Antun’s banquet hall in Queens Village.
Sources at de Blasio’s fund-raiser said it was attended by no more than 150 people — most of them lobbyists. The de Blasio campaign put the count at 300 and said it raised $1 million.
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.
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 ….
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.
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.
WELCOME THE REFUGEES KICK OUT NAZIS, POLITICIANS, AND COPS
Call for a No Borders and Antifascist contingent to the 9/12 Syrian Refugee solidarity demonstration
In Budapest, Lampedusa, Lesvos, Berlin, Calais, Kobani, Manus Island Melilla, the Negev, Yarmouk, Rafa, Santo Domingo, San Antonio and Nogales, we see the same crisis, the same dehumanizing rhetoric. We are told those fleeing violence and poverty of in Latin America, North Africa, and the Middle East are contagions of instability, that in order to defend our national character, we must build walls and detention camps, and ruthlessly exploit the chosen few we allow in.
They call this the worst refugee crisis since World War II. And today, just as Jews, Roma, Queers and others were turned away by the Allies, the thousands of Syrian, Iraqis, Kurds, and Afghans now fleeing ISIS, Assad and Erdogan are labeled pariahs and infiltrators.
In Turkey, Hungary, Germany, Britain, Sweden, France, Greece, Israel and the United States, nationalist politicians and fascist groups have used the crisis to heighten the friend/enemy and inside/outside rhetoric that props up their disgusting militarism, bigotry, and ethnic cleansing.
Over the last four years, sections of the United States have begun to wake up and take to the streets, confronting the bourgeois state and the murdering racist police that protect it.
In New York this Saturday, hundreds will call for the United States to take in Syrian refugees. We will stand with them to push that rhetoric even further:
– Solidarity with all those displaced by bombs, markets, or discrimination – Abolish borders, and the nationalism and racism that depend on them – Free entry for Syrian refugees, and everyone else!
Invite friends! Bring your crew… you’ll know us by the antifa and black flags!
Long live social revolution! Down with tyranny! THE ANARCHIST FIGHTERS.
A member of NY-ICEgave me a heads-up on this rally. Glad I caught it.
SEIU was on hand— as always-
As was NY-ICE ( New Yorkers For Immigration control)
The age of the rally participants was YOUNG, obnoxious and very ANTI- America.
Followed by the older die-hard ‘seniors’ who won’t rest til America (and Israel) are both destroyed.
The more recent addition: the Muslims.
ALL working together to deconstruct-America by brainwashing our youth. One Day. One Class. One meeting at a time.
There is a sickness in our colleges. Our schools. Our text-books. A disease fed and nurtured by the soc/commie/progs (ALL of whom are welcomed by our media and our educators)
ANARCHY breeds contempt (for America)
Contempt and the death of FREEDOM (they just don’t ‘get’ that—yet—)
John Hawkins | Sep 12, 2015 – As millions of Syrian migrants stream into Europe, the Obama Administration has announced that the United States will be taking in 10,000 refugees… if we were picking nations to recruit new Americans from, Syria would be pretty close to the bottom of the list.
People speak Arabic there, not English… it’s a dictatorship… the people of Syria have little experience with democracy, freedom of the press or the rule of law….Syria is not a fertile breeding ground of the sort of people who are going to fit into the culture of a country like America and make a big contribution…
Syria is also an ISIS stronghold and the terrorist group has publicly promised to use the migrant crisis to sneak its members into Western countries. This is not an idle threat.
… the United States has already done more than any nation in history to help nations in the Middle East… We already take in 70,000 refugees a year, we have north of 5 million illegal immigrants here using their kids to live on the dole (and that’s a VERY conservative estimate), we spend billions we don’t have in foreign aid every year and the American people give more to charity than any other group of people on earth. When is enough, enough?
… It’s time that we let other nations do their fair share for once instead of risking the next 9/11 by taking in Syrian migrants.
In closing,a look at, what for now, is the local political front:
I missed the ubiquitous Linda Sarsour. I left after the main speech. Look at the picture behind her. That display must have come with/for Sarsour’s speech. (she is being groomed to run for political office in Brooklyn) so manipulating the hearts and simple-minds of the indoctrinated…is pro-forma.
Next up – I’m off to the Annual Muzzie Day Parade – 2015 –
Monday, August 10, 2015. NYC. Our call to rally in support of Sen. Schumer was on short notice. (He announced his position on Friday). But, deciding to counter the Soc/Commie/Progs (who were demanding Sen. Schumer change his vote) was easy. Those who could make it to this counter-protest made a MIGHTY NOISE.
But, the Soc/Commie/Progs were not happy. They were heard to whine and whimper about our presence as they paraded their anti-Semitic signs and banners.
Guess they wanted the police to make us go away – Snarling – they were heard to say, “Why don’t you get your own protest”, and, “You shouldn’t be here.”
Since they couldn’t get rid of us, they went to Plan B: Clog the sidewalk with signs, people and cameras.
Their purpose: To block our signs and banners from the passersby.
BUT, they couldn’t block our very large mushroom cloud!
As the Commie/Progs marched in opposition to Sen. Schumer we heard “Death to America” repeatedly as well as lots about “Diplomacy, Not War”.
One woman screamed at our group, jabbing her finger in our faces, “You.You. YOU are burning babies”. (see video above at 6:19)
“The Commie/Progs” say they are anti-Nukes (nuclear power etc) BUT they support giving nukes to the anti-Semitic/anti-America and VERY genocidal Iran. How is that anti-Nuke?
To support their lies about nuclear parity, they had a map filled with nuke ‘facts’ .
Schumer was slandered by snarky anti-Semitic signs, insinuating he is a pawn of Israel
Yet the allegiance of the Soc/Commie/Progs is with murderous regimes like Hamas, Hezbollah AND Iran: All enemies of America and Israel.
The Commie/Progs have burrowed deep within City Hall (de Balsio’s minions) and through out Obama’s White House. (Not good)
Found a great article from Daniel Greenfield exposing the hypocrisy of these commie agitators.
As for the press at this rally, there were lots of cameras but little reporting to be found.I saw WOR radio and the NY Daily News.
Oddly their lede was the Neturei Karta?
I saw ONE Neturei Karta. ONE! At the END of the MAIN protest from 1 to 2 pm. (amazing)
Did the media miss the large protest, the signs, the loud exchanges and chanting from noon to 1 pm.A crowded, animated and contentious protest. Typical – the mean-spirited demeanor of the Commie-Left (Commie-Jews) from Brooklyn and the Upper West-Side who were there in SUPPORT of a Nuclear Iran. (Slideshow)
But, the protestors in SUPPORT of Schumer’s “NO Nukes For Iran” were equally animated.The report that follows in an excerpt came from Americans For a Safe Israel (AFSI), one of the groups that rallied in support of Schumer’s decision:
Our opposition: protesters from MoveOn.org and Peace Action and other dyed-in-the-wool leftists, who were protesting against Senator Schumer’s rejection of Obama’s deal with Iran.
Their true colors came out: Chuck is the enemy because he supports Israel over the US. Chuck is the enemy because he is in the pocket of AIPAC and the Jewish lobby. Chuck is the enemy because he supported the Iraq war (as did many Democrats – including Hillary – along with Republicans). We, who were protesting against the deal were the enemy because we supported Israel over the US. We were the enemy because we supported Bibi over Barack.
WE WERE THE ENEMY BECAUSE WE WHO OPPOSE THE DEAL WITH IRAN, SUPPORT ISRAEL, WHICH SUPPORTS THE BURNING OF BABIES! These words were yelled at us, along with the foam and spittle, from one angry woman’s mouth.
Their anti-Semitic venom came roaring out. They couldn’t argue the merits of their position so they resorted to that time-tested alternative: blame the Jews, and of course today, blame Israel, the Jew of the nations. Their moral bankruptcy was plain to see as they resorted to name-calling, racial slurs and epithets.
For the media, NOPE, no story here…Do the Commie/Progs REALLY believe Obama? Or do they just hate America and Israel so much that this is a convenient meme.
As usual with Obama, opposition to his policies is “partisan.” But support for his policies is non-partisan.
–-Obama: “The bottom line is, if Iran cheats, we can catch them, and we will.”
In fact, the Iranians are already cheating. As Bloomberg reported last week: “The U.S. intelligence community has informed Congress of evidence that Iran was sanitizing its suspected nuclear military site at Parchin, in broad daylight, days after agreeing to a nuclear deal with world powers.”
There are so many loopholes that we will awaken one day to find out that Iran is testing nuclear weapons just as North Korea did after signing its nuclear agreement with the United States
A sick cartoon posted by the American leftist political Web site the Daily Kos depicts New York Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer as an eyeglass-wearing critter. In the comic, “Senator Woodchuck Schumer’’ is interviewed by a cartoon dog about his opposition to President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
In one panel, he stands beside an Israeli flag as his front paws grow claws and the interviewer asks,
“TRAITOR SAYS WHAT?’’ A traitorous beast? Seriously?
As a Post editorial noted, Schumer’s bold stance against the nuke deal has made him the target of European-style anti-Semitic slurs throughout America, including MoveOn.org writing that “our country doesn’t need another Joe Lieberman in the Senate.’’ (Schumer and Lieberman are both Jewish, get it?) White House favorite Fareed Zakaria on CNN advanced the anti-Jewish stereotype that Schumer is motivated by “money’’ — the potential loss of campaign contributions. The president reportedly blamed pro-Israel lobbyists for stirring up divided loyalties.
(From Kieran Michael Lalor, a Republican member of the New York State Assembly.)
Obama broke with the bedrock American principle of not negotiating with terrorists. He did so without preconditions… The Iranians knew they were dealing with a weak president when Obama refused to speak out for reform in repressive Iran…Meeting and negotiating with Iran…treating them as a respected member of the community of nations… because Iran is more dangerous than a terrorist organization. As a state sponsor of terror it has greater resources and more deadly capabilities than does a stateless organization.
… we should strengthen sanctions to further weaken the Iranian economy, increase espionage and cyber sabotage efforts with regard to Iranian nuclear ambitions and encourage the reformers…tell the Iranians that we will never permit them to build nukes….avoid the inevitable Middle East arms race that will occur when Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia are faced with an Iran that is strengthened militarily, economically and on the road to becoming a nuclear power as a result of this deal…
A PROTEST Rally was led by the Coalition Against Kinghoffer Opera outside the Metropolitan Opera
Opening Night of the Metropolitan Season. September 22, 2014 – NYC –
The Metropolitan’s Season will include this Anti-American, Anti-Jewish, Anti-Israel, Pro-Terrorist SNUFF Opera, ” The MURDER of Leon Klinghoffer”
More appropriate title should be. ” The MURDER of Leon Klinghoffer“… Leon Klinghoffer didn’t just die… SHAME ON PETER GELB
Thousands came out to protest the Snuff opera. They gathered on both sides of the Avenue and managed to have a presence on the Plaza as well.
Even though attempts were made to confine the massive gathering to one location across from the opera…the protest peacefully but with determination spread out ( before, during AND AFTER)
The Official Protest ended at 6 PM. but many stayed on with signs and flyers to greet those attending the Opening Night of the opera season.
Demanding this Snuff Opera be removed from the season.
Important questions were asked of the media as well, “WHO is FUNDING this Terrorist Opera?”
There were many speakers. Please watch them all in the 3-part videos below. (Videographer, Pamela Hall)
Part 1 Video [Please watch videos in HD for best quality]
Speakers listed in order: Introductory remarks, Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, David Weprin, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, NYPD Detective Steven McDonald and Debra Burlingame.
Part 2 – Video
Speakers listed in order: Tony LoBianco, Richard Allen, Bill Donohue, Bruce Blakeman, Sarri Springer,Wendy Laski, Consolee Nishemwe, Dr. Paul Brody reading a letter from Judea Pearl, Former Attorney General, Michael Mukasey and Congressman Eliot Engel.
Part 3 – Video
Speakers listed in order: Rabbi Avi Weiss, Dov Hikind, 3 students:Hannah Cohen, Ben Kahn, Ari Brandspigel (student council president DRS Yeshiva H.S.), Gov, George Pataki, Charles Asher Small, Rabbi Steven Burg (Simon Wiesenthal Center), Rabbi Zev Freidman, Richard Allen, MK Nissim Ze’ev, Mort Klein, Devorah Halberstam, Beth Gilinsky and Helen Freedman.
There are two side shows of pictures. First slideshow is the Speakers-
“One of the lines in this anti-semitic opera is: “wherever poor people are gathered they can find Jews getting fat. America is one big Jew.” So who is this “exploiter Jew,” the one that Peter Gelb, the director of the Metropolitan Opera and himself a Jew whose father was a New York Times Managing Editor, allows to be denigrated on his stage?
Leon Klinghoffer was born a poor Jew from the Lower East Side, a man who invented an electric mini-grill you could also wash in your sink, an early predecessor of the current George Forman Grill. I recall one of these mini-grills in my home as a child in the 1950s. From this, Mr. Klinghoffer was able to create jobs for a number of people in manufacturing and sales and to support his family.
“John Adams can work his clunky, chunky music to his heart’s content. And so I suppose can Alice Goodman work her poetry. Ms. Goodman was born a Jew. She is now an Anglican priest, serving the Church of England, first as chaplain at Trinity College, Cambridge, latterly at a group of parishes near the university. The truth is that it is not Mr. Adams’ music that is at the core of the controversy. It is Ms. Goodman’s words. She is no free spirit in this church, which has been fighting with the Jewish nation and the British Jewish community for decades. ”
This so-called opera is actually a sophisticated attack by wealthy, cosmopolitan Jews on a self-made New York Jew with limited education who had the audacity to make something of his life.” [End Jack Kemp]
Never Again Means NEVER AGAIN!
Join the Coalition on October 20. Opening night of the actual opera: “The Death MURDER of Leon Klinghoffer”
“For the first time, defenders of Israel and representatives of minorities persecuted by Islamic jihadists from around the world gathered together to stand for life and for freedom. Finally, the truth.
Our speakers provided harrowing insight into the full breadth and depth of the havoc and destruction that Islamic jihadists have unleashed upon the world. New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind gave a stirring appeal for Israel in its struggle against the jihad, and was seconded by the eloquent Ethiopian Jewish spokesman Mordechai Tasman and an IDF soldier who spoke of his own experiences. Dr. Mordechai Kedar flew from Israel for the rally, and showed how the jihadists are proceeding according to quranic imperatives.
What was unprecedented and groundbreaking about our rally was that these strong defenders of Israel were joined by others: Yazidi spokesman Haider Elias, the toweringly courageous and eloquent Sudanese freedom fighter Simon Deng, Palestinian Christian Mazzen Warra, Pastor Matthew Singh of Christians United for Israel, Indian human rights activist Arish Sahani, and Kurdish spokesman Salar Motidi — all of them recognized that we all face the same foe, and all of them ringingly affirmed the necessity for us to stand together for freedom.”
Playlist of 15 great videos. Wonderful speakers gave support to Israel and to other victimsof devout Islamists.We heard from the victims. We heard their warnings.
Concern for those who fear for their lives 24/7 rang through the air. Cries and pleas ignored by the media. They can’t handle the truth. So they ignore it.
We sang of Hope,Hatikva, of Yerushalim. A crowd favorite was , “Hashem Melech, Hashem Malach“, The Lord is King!
It was a fabulous rally.
Perhaps “new blood”, like Ari Lesser, will expose the media lies and propaganda with his hip-hop lyrics (which you can enjoy in the video playlist above) His lyrics smartly meet the challenge for the Next Generation.
“This is their Battle. Their Future.” A great day for freedom lovers. Inspired. Our counter protests grow.
Thinking about our media battles. Looking back at July and August. I am posting some pictures and videos of anti-Israel protests from the summer of ’14
August 1, 2014.Columbus Circle. NYC.
Community Organizers prop-up these Muslim protests. Soc/Commie/Progs working behind-the-scenes to kill Western Civilization one protest-at-a-time. Fools and Tools. They. Never. Stop.
Slideshow August 1st PRO-Israel COUNTER PROTEST: Emotions ran deep from those who came out to support Israel in the midst of another anti-Israel hate-fest. They hung in there, even though the police kept moving them from corner to corner.
Death to Israel chants. Fists pumped in the air. Angry. Hateful. No call for peace. Not real peace. Not from these professional agitators. The leftist agitprop of genocidal hatred rang through the air, “Stop the killing. Stop the Hate”. Pleas meant to mislead the gullible press who choose to ignore the Nazi-like fists pounding over-head.
The heart-felt pain of one womanwho came to support Israel .
They called this ‘hate’.
All I saw was despair. (August 1st playlist 5 short videos)
They NEVER stop.
This next rally was a “Takbir-fest”, in July.
July 17 , 2014 – Times Square-Pumping fists. Screaming. Yelling. Chants-of-Hate.
Intifada, Intifada and “Takbir, Takbir, Takbir” (allah is greatest)
To be Free from Fear. Free Of Islam. Free from Tyranny. From brutal, murderous Savages. That would be REAL Peace.
All the isms want ‘peace’. Communism, fascism, islamism etc.Their peace where everybody agrees with their philosophy/religion and always does what they are told. Non-conformists are of course severely punished or murdered.
The battle for peace continues as we fight to stop the Media lies and distortions.
Never Again means Never Again….
Protests. Rallies. Counter-Protests.
Be Aware. Be Ready.
