Israeli Apartheid Week 2017 – Columbia University

This year the 13th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week took place all around the world between March – April 2017. Israeli Apartheid Week is organized by an international network of grassroots solidarity groups, unions and activists.

apartheid-week-2017
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.

short video:

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.

Lawfare Project Presser- Kuwait Airways vs Israeli Citizens – NY City Hall

November 4, 2015 – The latest on the ARAB LEAGUE BOYCOTT ATTEMPTS TO STRANGLE ISRAEL. The BDS Movement. Worldwide explosion of anti-Semitism against Jews. Focus at this NY City Hall presser was on Kuwaiti Airlines and their discrimination against Israeli Citizens flying to London.

VIDEO of FULL PRESSER – 25 minutes

The nine speakers in order: Lancman,Hoelein,Goldstein,Levine,Moerdler,Greenfield,Levitky,Maisel and Dr. Stone.

Elected Officials, Advocates Call on Department of Transportation and Port Authority to Enforce DOT Decision Prohibiting Kuwait Airways’ Discrimination Against Israeli Citizens.
 
WHAT:

The Lawfare Project, New York City Council Members Lancman, Greenfield, and Maisel, and others call on the Port Authority and the Department of Transportation (DOT) to enforce federal anti-discrimination laws and the anti-discrimination provisions of Kuwait Airways’ lease at JFK Airport to prevent the airline from continuing to refuse to sell tickets to Israeli citizens.

DOT has already determined that this policy violates federal law, and its practice violates the airline’s lease with the Port Authority. The Council Members and advocates publicly released a letter to DOT and the Port Authority requesting enforcement action or termination of Kuwait Airways’ lease and ability to fly out of JFK Airport.

WHO:
  • Council Members Rory I. Lancman, David Greenfield, Alan Maisel, Mark Levine
  • Malcolm Hoenlein – Executive Vice Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations
  • Professor Richard B. Stone – Former Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations
  • Jeffrey A. Moerdler – Former Commissioner, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
  • Jeffrey Lovitky – Attorney at Law, counsel for complainant in action against DOT
  • Brooke Goldstein – Director, The Lawfare Project
WHERE:
City Hall Steps (City Hall Park, New York, NY 10007)
WHEN:

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 @ 12:00PM ET

STATEMENTS:

“I commend the Department of Transportation on reaching its just conclusion, and urge both the DOT and Port Authority to take all steps necessary to ensure that Kuwait Airways’ flagrant discrimination is not permitted in the United States.”

– Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations

“The Department of Transportation’s decision is a crucial step toward the elimination of unlawful discrimination in air travel and the protection of human rights. Now, it is imperative that DOT and the Port Authority staunchly enforce this decision such that Kuwait Airways ceases its deplorable conduct. All travelers within the United States should expect to be treated equally in our nation’s airports, regardless of their ethnicity or national origin.” – Brooke Goldstein, Director, The Lawfare Project

“The Arab League boycott, of which Kuwait Airways’ reprehensible practices are part and parcel, is discriminatory at its core. Like the modern-day BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement, the Arab League boycott and its offshoots are expressions of bigotry. This is precisely why the U.S. Congress and state governments have enacted anti-boycott legislation to protect individuals and entities who are singled out for unequal, punitive treatment based not on what they do, but on who they are.” – Professor Richard B. Stone, Former Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations
 

Kuwait Airway’s action establishes an intolerable precedent for the airline industry. If an airline stated that it would not accept passengers with Mexican passports, people would justifiably claim discrimination against Hispanics. If an airline stated that it would not accept passengers with Saudi passports, people would justifiably claim discrimination against Muslim passengers. The same is true here, except that the discrimination is directed against citizens of the Jewish state. The Arab League boycott of Israel is a manifestation of religious intolerance, motivated by the Jewish nature of the State of Israel.

The illegal discrimination practiced by Kuwait Airways is inconsistent with our laws and our fundamental values as a nation. By its terms, the permit granted by the Department of Transportation to Kuwait Airways has lapsed because that airline is not in compliance with U.S. law. Therefore, the Department of Transportation must swiftly terminate all Kuwait Airways service between New York and London. Such termination is mandated by statute, and is fully consistent with Article 4 of the U.S.-Kuwait Air Transportation (“Open Skies”) Agreement.”

– Jeffrey Lovitky, Attorney at Law
 

“The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has a long tradition of doing the right thing.  Now that the U.S. Department of Transportation has determined that Kuwait Airlines’ policy of not selling tickets on flights to London to Israeli passport holders violates United States law, we call on the Port Authority to do the right thing here too and enforce the anti-discrimination provisions of its lease with Kuwait Airlines.” – Jeffrey A. Moerdler, Former Commissioner, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

What’s next? GLOBAL INTIFADA: (coming way too soon to a town near you) These lowlifes have BIG Plans.

Michigan City Council is now All Muslim Majority

New Muslim Majority City Council in Michigan Warns, “Today we show the [non-Muslims] and everybody else….”

 

From AFSI In the Middle East, the Muslims are moving the clock back to the seventh century, as they attempt to regain the glory of the early years of Islam. Today, Islam is on the march. ISIS, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah are all the same thing, and make no mistake – all are bent on jihad and the destruction of western civilization.

The “Little Satan” – Israel – is the only bulwark keeping Islam from conquering Europe, by preventing a total Islamist takeover of the Middle East. Israel is buying Europe a little time. Alas, to its grave misfortune Europe is squandering the opportunity Israel is presenting it. Europe is importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims; people who will never integrate into European society, but who are creating parallel governments, education and social systems, with one aim: conquest. Forget bombs or a decades-long battle of the womb. Muslims are very quickly reaching critical mass in major cities throughout Europe, and only need to be a small percent of a society’s population before they are empowered to use their power. It is happening in front of our eyes.
 

Here in the United States, the Obama administration has made several pronouncements indicating a decision to take in and resettle at least 100,000 “refugees” from the Middle East.

If it goes ahead and is successful with this plan, woe is us.

 History DOES repeat itself as documented in these videos on the horrors of anti-semitism – Film maker Pierre Rehov has dedicated himself to exposing the murderous lies and anti-Semitism by recently making available these two important videos.

Closing thoughts, as the Global Warfare metastasizes and the THIRD Intifada continues. The Religion of “Peace” has struck AGAIN:

“the attack on france is what israel goes through daily for close to 70 years. when arafat turned down the bill clinton-brokered peace treaty (june, 2000) in which the palestinians got 98% of what they demanded (still, without recognizing israel!), arafat started the second intifada, in which 1000 israelis were blown up on a daily basis, in pizzeria’s, on buses, etc. Considering the population differences (israel has 7 million people, america, 325 million), that would be the equivalent of an uprising in this country where 50,000 people were killed. did you read that? every time 5 israelis are stabbed or murdered —which is an everyday occurrence — that’s the equivalent of it happening to 50 people in france.daily. and all obama and hillary and kerry and the EU and Ban at the UN can do is blame israel for building apartments in its own territory as the main cause for the worldwide terror. sure.” [seth swirsky]

“… isn’t it about time to rethink this whole diversity-for-the-sake-of-diversity nonsense?? How do we co-exist with crazed… lunatics?”

Global Anti-Semitism: A Threat to International Peace & Security – United Nations (9-8-14)

UN houses, but does not sponsor, anti-Semitism conference

September 8, 2014 – The United Nations- NYC
UN-flag Conference on “Global Anti-Semitism: A Threat to International Peace and Security”
According to the World Zionist Organization, since the recent Israel-Hamas conflict there has been more than a 400-percent rise in anti-Semitic incidents in Europe. In South America and South Africa, anti-Semitic incidents have spiked 1,200 and 600 percent, respectively. In the U.S., such incidents are up 127 percent.

The conference was co-organized by the UN Permanent Mission of Palau and the Engr Aja Eze Foundation.
Attendance to this historic event was free. The place was packed.
The hall was packed!

On the third floor of the United Nations, just two doors down from the Security Council, more than 500 people gathered  on September 8, 2014,  for a conference on the rise of anti-Semitism. For some, the location was a touch ironic … it wasn’t the UN that decided to address the threat global anti-Semitism posed to international peace and security… it was the UN Permanent Mission of Palau and the Aja Eze Foundation that sponsored the lunchtime conference.

Energy. Intense. Positive.
Serious. Purposeful. Supportive.
The speakers explained how the rising tide of anti-Semitism, if not stopped, will have a catastrophic effect on the safety and security of the world.
A thought-provoking afternoon. Rather than just post a podcast, I decided to post the entire audio with stills that I took during the Conference. I encourage you to listen to each speaker .
  In Two-Parts (total is 1 hour 45 minutes): Ms. Ugoji Eze Esq, President of the Eng Aja Eze Foundation, a non-profit organization focusing on the rebuilding of societies following conflicts, was the moderator

PART TWO – VIDEO

PART TWO VIDEO Begins with Pastor Mario Bramnick, Chief Liaison for Israel and the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference: “The Root Causes of the Current Rise of Global Anti-Semitism”. (00:29 – 13:43 ) He said, “ There has never been a meeting on anti-Semitism like this in the halls of the U.N.”

The final speaker before a short Q and A was Dr. Michael Llorenz
, Professor Touro College Graduate School of Business, “Entrepreneurship: A Tool to Social Integration”  (20:56 – 35:33) This, too, was a powerful a speech.

Dr. Llorenz posted a comment at Algemeiner I felt compelled to share. So eloquent. Passionate. Determined to make a difference. In spite of the United Nations blatant anti-Semitism!

Professor Michael Llorénz

Dear Editors:
Thank you for conveying the message of my speech at the United Nations last Monday. Too often, those of us who Israel stand on the sidelines and wait for someone else to act. Most often, fiery rhetoric substitutes for effective action.
You may know what impelled me to agree to speak and to help with the historic event that we experienced on Monday.

Hashem is not the God of coincidence. These Recommendations I made are part of a larger strategy that I prepared as a response to two questions asked of me at a book signing where a frustrated colleague who knew that I had successfully aided other communities and institutions to address their complex difficulties. “Israel and Jews are in trouble. Why don’t you come up with something to help?” I was surprised as the person walked away. A little later, Dr. Donne Kampel, founder and chair of the Women’s Leadership Council introduced me to the Barrister Ugoji Eze, CEO of the Aja Eze Foundation that produced the program at the United Nations. She asked me what could be done to help Israel and to reduce anti-Semitism in the United States. It was a curiosity that two persons would ask me similar question within perhaps an hour and a half.

This time, I responded. My answer took perhaps twenty minutes inclusive of analysis, alternatives, and recommendations. She then told me she wanted me to speak at an anti-Semitism program that she was going to produce at the United Nations. I smiled, then agreed. Having been for five years the Principal Accredited Representative at the UN of one the largest NGOs in the world and having presented before the Fourth Committee, I was cogently aware of the sentiments of many of the key actors. Hence, I had difficulty imagining such a thing taking place. Yet, who would imagine that that the two of us who earned law degrees from English universities, she of African father and a British Jewish mother, and I, an American of Cuban heritage and some Jewish ancestry, would be blessed with the support of Ambassador Otto of Palau and later be joined by like-minded persons to make this historic program take place. Barrister Eze demonstrated prescient leadership.

Since my speech, I have had numerous requests to help apply practical and substantive ways to address anti-Semitism. I shall do my best to help.

This is a story of Hashem’s people doing His will.

Thank you again.
Michael Llorenz

Lastly,  Short Q and A (35: 34 – 45:43) and Final Remarks by Ms. Ugoji Eze Esq. (45:45 -47:40)

Final Thoughts:
I had never been to the United Nations. Held no interest for me. But, the seriousness of this conference pulled me in. Very glad I went. Post-Conference:
Had a sandwich in the cafeteria overlooking the East River (Where they CHARGE you 10 cents to use a TRAY)

Took some pictures as I wandered the halls from the third floor to the first. (lots of glitter and gold items that were donated by RICH oil emirates)


And one obnoxious set of panels that greeted the conferees as they exited the third floor elevator on the way to the Global Anti-Semitism Conference (SURELY this was NO accident)


Our exit from the building, after this spectacular conference, was made even more meaningful when these OBNOXIOUS PANELS were turned AWAY from the Exit.  Go Team!
