Tell Roger Waters “No BDS Here!” at the Belasco Theatre

“Music is intended to transcend political barriers and promote cultural exchange, pluralism, and diversity. Instead, Roger Waters is promoting hate. The Jewish Defense League will continue to take actions against Roger Waters until he renounces antisemitism in all of its forms, including the unjust boycott of the Jewish state.” [Face Book]

 Video below of Waters arriving to a chorus of “Shame on you” at the  Sept 10th protest :

The Belasco Theatre, where the equally despicable, Michael Moore is appearing in  his failed Broadway show, “THE TERMS OF MY SURRENDER“.

Roger Waters has been a vocal advocate for BDS and anti-Israel rhetoric making it imperative that organizations like the JDL and AFSI hit the streets in opposition to his anti-Israel, anti Jewish animus.

Still, many of the passersby outside the Belasco had never heard about the anti- Jewish, anti-Israel agit-prop supported by Waters (and Moore).

Many, like this woman, were sorry they had tickets for the Barclay Center.

Roger Waters may be a giant to some, but this is one despicable human being coming to Brooklyn’s Barclay Center on September 11th and 12th.

Advocates FOR Israel will be outside the Center NOT welcoming him:  “WE DON’T NEED NO ROGER WATERS!”

They will carry signs like, “BDS NOT WELCOME HERE!”,  “HELL NO! ROGER MUST GO!” and “Say NO to Roger Waters” and ENOUGH!

Silence equals complicity.

Silence permits anti-Semitism to grow.

We must be SILENT NO MORE!

al-Quds Day LIES Returned to Times Square 2017

al-Quds Day, June 23, 2017. The anti-Israel LIES and agitprop returned to Times Square. Again.

Every year. Same ol’, Same ol’. (Rinse. Repeat)

Commies and their anti-Israel chums (Muslims and the Neturei Karta) gathered on Seventh avenue to proclaim – LOUDLY- that the Holy Land. Israel. Jerusalem (al-Quds). The Temple Mount (al Aqsa mosque). The City of David. ALL are the ‘ancestral’ property of those “Palestinain”  pretenders from Jordan (“victims’ of the Jews).

The Big LIE, claiming to be “Palestinians”. You name it. They  claim it. “From the River to the Sea”.

In Arabic, Jerusalem is known as al-Quds :  “The Holy” or “The Holy Sanctuary”.


al-
Quds Day (Jerusalem Day; Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem), an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan …. initiated by the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and Israel,[1] as well as Israel’s “occupation” of Jerusalem and Jewish settlements in Israeli- occupied territories[2][3]. Nominally, it exists in opposition to the Jerusalem Day (Yom Yerushalayim) celebration instituted by Israel in May 1968.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quds_Day]

The videos begin with al-Quds Day chants and pep-talk speeches (of course).

 The usual anti-Israel, anti-Zionist LIES made by the delusional Neturei Karta were countered vociferously by the The New Jewish Defence League NYC.

The New JDL-NY counter-protest had legs, determined to confront the LIES, still — even the truth confused some and irritated others.

But, the JDL-NY  had a permit so their counter-protest was not buried blocks away. The Commies got Alinskied! (Right back ‘atcha)

 The al-Quds Commies displayed “outrage” as they shouted (screamed) their Fakestinian agitprop across 42nd and 7th.

Lead by the usual culprits: Ramsey Clark’s IAC (International Action Center Commies) and WWP ( Workers World Party), Sara Flounders .

Also from IAC and WWP (Workers World Party),  Larry Holmes .

Veteran Communist organizers ran the ‘show’ along with Cyrus McGoldrick (once head of NY-CAIR) ….

Most of the speakers SCREAMED their message of HATE , except for Sara Flounders. She spewed just as much hatred for Israel and America, but in an oddly quiet-tone. Either way, it’s still HATE. “It is Right To Rebel- Israel Go To Hell” (at approx 1:35) But, TODAY, they did not “OWN the streets”, just their hatred.

As the JDL- NY counter-protest continued, walking back and forth, with the JDL and Israeli flags, sullen was added to the Communist demeanor.

Now the al-Quds protest-leaders slipped profanity into their pro-forma, anti-Zionist, anti America diatribes. They were not happy.

Even the always confident Cyrus McGoldrick seemed to grow weary of the JDL-NY commotion.

The JDL-NY contingent, like gnats on a hot summer-night, were annoying but legal.

…. just keep walking …

So the Israeli, American, Trump in 2020 and JDL flags strolled back and forth.
Including an “al-Quds is HATE” sign.
 
The whistles. The rams horn. The acoustic megaphones. The jeering back at the speakers. It all worked. But, next time, I’d recommend MORE WHISTLES (maybe more cowbell!)

The JDL-NY counter-protest was unrelenting. Countering the LIES. A new day was dawning.

 The NK – holding HORRID Nazi signs – were confronted by passersby, the JDL and a guy in a truck draped with Israeli flags.

He stopped his truck right beside the Neturei Karta, shouting at them in Hebrew.

Then, he drove SLOWLY down 7th. Next to the protest pens.

Yelling at the protestors, they yelled back and threw signs, as well as other small detritus at his truck. [caught this action in the video at about 1:38] All while NYC Students for Justice in Palestine organizer, Nerdeen Kiswani,was screaming hatred from the stage.

Soon after, very soon, the the police closed that traffic lane next to the barricades. No way would he, or anyone else, make a second pass.


  Seems the war-of-flags and banners led to an arrest on the Left.  No matter. Lefties LOOOVE anything that gets them more attention. Especially arrests.

The arrestee was activist Nick Maniace of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. The Maniace arrest in picture below includes two of his co-horts, the woman in the  green hajab and Sara Flounders of International Action Center

Arrest Report from Samidoun : NYPD illegally arrests Samidoun organizer at al-Quds Day rally in Times Square


Nick’s arrest took place midway through Joe Catron’s speech for the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.  A small team of demonstrators engaged in jail support arrived with Nick to the al-Quds Day Iftar organized by NYC Students for Justice in Palestine after the demonstration, meeting with cheers and strong solidarity and support.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
denounces the unjust and illegitimate arrest by the NYPD of Nick Maniace.


Such attacks are in no way surprising from a police department engaged in daily terror against Black people and other oppressed communities. This incident reflects ongoing NYPD support for Zionism and racism and the framework of repression and surveillance targeting the Palestine movement and Arab and Muslim organizing and community existence.

We urge full support for Nick Maniace at his scheduled court date on 28 August and, most importantly, continued and intensified organizing, protest and action against racism, Zionism, imperialism and colonialism, from NYPD repression on the streets of New York to Zionist settler colonialism in occupied Palestine.

In my own words, as I watched Sara Flounders argue against the arrest and JDL-NY’s permit.

JDL-NY  had a PERMIT, not a sound permit, but an NYPD permit allowing them to protest across from the al-Quds protest; challenging the al-Quds lies, relentlessly. This annoyed dedicated Ramsey Clarke Commie, Sara Flounders. So she confronted an NYPD captain.

I over heard Sara arguing with the Capt. “Why was the JDL allowed to be so close to their protest?” (shouting – WHISTLING)

She waved her permit form. The Captain responded, “They (JDL-NY) have a permit, too.”  Sara (shocked) “THEY have a permit?” (Capt) YES! ( Sara) flustered. annoyed. Jammed her cell phone to her ear – making a call (to someone) They do this a lot when manipulating the police. BUT- heh- nothing worked!

The Captain waved her away. Crossed back to the al-Quds pen, on the east side of Seventh Ave, telling an officer to get her out of the street. She was blocking traffic. (sweet)

As for that ARREST, remember: Commies LOVE to be arrested : victimology 101.

More on the arrest in a comment from the “belly-ache” of the beast:

While we’re on “Fact or Fiction” reportage- found an odd reference while  searching Google for “Israel”.  WHAT pray tell is THIS?  Google- protesting history?

“DEPRECATION ANNOUNCED” from Google?

Definition: of Deprecated- a recommendation against using it “to express disapproval”


Perhaps the sponsors dedicated to spewing these FREE al -Quds LIES, might also work for GOOGLE. (friends in ‘high’ places?)

The list of  sponsors for al Quds

Names and organizations: Students for Justice in Palestine organizer Nerdeen Kiswani. Speakers included Kiswani of NYC SJP, Joe Catron of Samidoun, Sara Flounders of the International Action Center, Bernadette Ellorin and Mike Legaspi of BAYAN USA, longtime activist Esperanza Martel, Richard Kossally of Peoples’ Power Assembly, Mike Bento of NYC Shut it Down, Syed Istafa Naqvi of the Islamic Association of North America, Shahid Comrade of the Pakistan USA Freedom Forum, Larry Holmes of the Workers World Party and Lawrence Hamm of the Peoples Organization for Progress, reflecting an alliance of social justice movements.
They do not relent. Neither should we. The TRUTH must be heard.  No matter what the Commies and Muslim “fakestinians’ claim, these inconvenient (and IGNORED) FACTS remain what they are : FACT- NOT LIES!

“… there are no records to support the Palestinian narrative. In history, art and literature there is no trace at all of any Muslim people referred to by anybody as “Palestinians.”

Records show that it was 19th and 20th century Jewish settlement and the resulting employment opportunities that drew successive waves of Arab immigrants to Palestine. “The Arab population shows a remarkable increase ….. partly due to the import of Jewish capital into Palestine and other factors associated with the growth of the [Jewish] National Home..” (The Peel Commission Report – 1937)

“..in the Jewish settlement Rishon l’Tsion founded in 1882, by the year 1889, the forty Jewish families settled there, had attracted more than four hundred Arab families…. Many other Arab villages had sprouted in the same fashion.” (Joan Peters – From Time Immemorial p. 252 – referenced further as: FTI)

British PM Winston Churchill said in 1939: “.. far from being persecuted, the Arabs have crowded into the country [Palestine]..”

Before the Six Day War in 1967, when Jordan controlled the West Bank and Egypt ruled in Gaza, there was never any suggestion on the part of the “Palestinians” that they wanted independence in their ancestral homeland. The reason was that the “Palestinian” nation hadn’t been invented yet.

In fact, before the State of Israel was born, the term “Palestinians” was used by the Jews to refer to themselves and their organizations. “The Palestine Post”, the Palestine Foundation Fund, Palestine Airways, and the Palestine Symphony Orchestra were all purely Jewish enterprises.

We first hear of Arabs referred to as “Palestinians” when Egypt’s President Nasser, with help from the Russian KGB, established the “Palestine Liberation Organization” in 1964. It was only during the 1970s that the newly minted “Palestinians” began to promote their narrative through murder and assassination. The Arabs have justified their attacks as acts of the indigenous people struggling for national liberation.[snip]

The claim that “Palestinians” are the indigenous people of Israel and that most of the present Palestinian Arabs have lived in these lands since time immemorial is a total fraud. “

National “Day Of Hate” (Commie Style) Grand Central Station – NYC

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)

EA8_0707

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. ++

BDS Leftists enraged by Cuomo’s anti-BDS support for Israel (6-09-16)

Ramadan 2016 : ISRAEL.(June 8) Murder by Jihad; Orlando (June 10), Mass Murder by Jihad; France (June 14) Murder by JIHAD.

Ramadan-the Month of Jihad” when Jihadi’s Kill the Infidel”.

https://media.licdn.com/mpr/mpr/jc/AAEAAQAAAAAAAAW5AAAAJDlmYzZlNjJkLTc1NjYtNGRhOS05YmFlLWJhMTQ4YmI5MmU0MA.png
Yet, the Jihadis remain a mystery to those who control the message. The media (the President) BLAME anyone or anything BUT NOT Islam. Islam, is the Religion of “Peace”.

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.[48]
  • 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.”

Boycott for Justice Flyer0001Gov. Cuomo proclaimed, “If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.

https://i0.wp.com/www.thejewishweek.com/sites/default/files/images/2016/06/10-0.feature_580x320.jpg

“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.”

Boycott for Justice Flyer0002

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.

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.

(proclaiming it to be) “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers”?

Brace yourself: there are (still) 16 days to go.

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 AFSIIn 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?”

Celebrate Israel Parade – A Look at Both Sides (Pro & the BDS Con)

May 31, 2015. NYC. The Annual Israel Day Parade.

logo-67-usa222CELEBRATING Israel, That’s WHY we were there. To CELEBRATE!But, the BDS’ers (Boycott, Divest Sanction)  … the Neturei Karta …. the NIF (The New Israel Fund) …They came to RAIN on this parade not to praise it.The insanity of  the Prog – Commie – Leftist Jewish organizations (the NIF, Adalah , Breaking The Silence) offended the eye as they marched IN the parade (Thanks to the JCC

Other anti-Zionistas stood along the parade route with obnoxious signs and banners. Liars, proclaiming Israel to be an Apartheid State.

From Mark Langfan :

The Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel…  everyone ignores the simple truth staring them in the face: The so-called “Two-State Solution” is the sole cause of the BDS movement.  Until the Israeli government exposes the “Two-State Solution” as a charade and a fraud, the Israeli government’s de jure endorsement of a “Two-State Solution” will continue to fuel the BDS movement. 

At 59th and 5th avenue, when it came to who was PRO-Israel … these two giving a thumbs-down to the BDS’rs … were like most in attendance: Proud and Clear!Mega-Dittos
Of course, the parade was a HUGE success (IN SPITE of the anti-Zionists.)

New York’s annual celebration of Israel was greeted by tens of thousands of spectators devoted to the Jewish state with about 30,000 participants”

As the Prog-Soc-Lefties marched in opposition to the State of Israel, some on their side found the JPAC to be an odd bunch-of-coconuts, even for them:

“Who the heck is the Jewish Political Action Committee?”

Said Gilli Getz , a photographer posting on the ‘progressive’ JewSchool blog:

From the photos it looks like the Westboro Baptist Church picked up some day laborers outside a Home Depot, gave them some offensive signs, taleisim and Na-Nach hats and paid them to stand at the parade.”

(look closely at who is holding the JPAC signs) >
The view from behind, was when I first took notice of the unusual participants holding signs for the  JPAC .Even the JPAC flyer criticized the BDS Movement….

jewish
As for Getz and his defense of the BDS Movement, he complains about the attempts to block the anti-Israel ‘progressives’ from marching in the CELEBRATE Israel Parade. (posted on JewSchool)

He continues, “I was marching as I do every year at the Celebrate Israel parade with the Progressive cluster.

Despite a loud and nasty campaign to keep us out of the parade, we marched proudly under the banner of New Israel Fund, T’ruah, Partners for Progressive Israel and Americans for Peace Now.

Celebrating the inspiring Israeli human rights organizations and the fight in Israel for social and economic justice and the end of the occupation.” (TSM: They were NOT Celebrating Israel)

Anyone who cares about Israel stands against the New Israel Fund.

מצעד-בניו-יורק
From Stand With Us regarding the BDS Movement:.

“The last decade has seen a sharp uptick in the amount of traction gained by BDS and its associated partners.”

“Recently major supermarket chains like Tesco in the UK have begun labeling products made in Israel, while a major Norwegian state fund has divested from Israel companies, Danya Cebus and Africa Israel, for their involvement in building projects over the Green Line.”

Some of the PRO-Israel supporters
were at 63rd and Fifth. AFSI and JCC Watch. They had banners and signs to expose, chastise and protest the participation of these anti-Zionist groups.


Shamefully, these groups were sanctioned by Alisa Doctoroff and the Parade’s organizers at the JCC.

About 8 days after the CELEBRATE Israel Parade, Obama, our first ‘Jewish’ President (!) 2011-10-07-FirstJewishPresidentsucceeded in denying ISRAEL as country-of-birth.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a law that would let American citizens born in Jerusalem have Israel listed in passports as their country of birth, saying it encroached on the president’s exclusive power to recognize foreign governments. It can no longer be listed a Country of Birth on American passports (for anyone born in Jerusalem). ”

Anti-BDS Protest @ UJA Headquarters &100+ Shofars (5-11-15) Vids /Pics

Anti-BDS Protest At UJA Headquarters – Oh, What A Night!

Richard Allen, founder and head of JCC Watch, was the MC.

The protest took place in the late afternoon/early evening of May 11, 2015 outside the UJA headquarters in Manhattan. Members of the pro-Israel community were out en force energetically protesting Lisa Doctoroff (President of the UJA), BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) and the NIF (New Israel Fund).

Shame on the UJA for funding these groups that work to disenfranchise Jews from their homeland in Yehuda and Shomron, and indeed, throughout Israel!

The following is a synopsis  of the protest from AFSI: 

“An energized group of more than 100 people protested outside the UJA, blowing shofars (real and toy) to wake up the UJA leadership to the dangers they are perpetrating on the Jewish people.

Richard Allen explained that Alisa Doctoroff, President of UJA-Federation,uja1_hh is guilty of supporting the New Israel Fund (NIF) with millions of dollars which are then given to NGO’s that work to destroy Israel. Doctoroff-BDS-NIF-ad1

 

 

 
Incredibly, some of these groups are marching in the Celebrate Israel Parade when their purpose is NOT to celebrate Israel, but to denigrate it.

He then introduced Rabbi Allen Schwartz, Rabbi of Ohab Zedek on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, who spoke about all the remarkable contributions Israel makes to the world, but regardless, is still castigated and ostracized by much of the world.

And Lauri Regan spoke for EMET (Endowment for Middle East Truth), outlining the injustices of the BDS system and the great harm it does both inside and outside Israel.

Helen Freedman, Executive Director of AFSI spoke next.
She began by asking, “Does Israel have the right to exist?” The crowd roared back with a resounding YES. She then asked, “Do you want your tzedakah supporting those who de-legitimize Israel?” The crowd responded with a strong NO. She then stated, “Our purpose here today is to announce that we are closing our wallets to UJA – while it supports the demonizers of Israel.”

Helen mentioned how Europe is consumed with BDS, and how the Netherlands cut the pension of a 90 year old Holocaust survivor for the “crime” of moving to Israel and living over the green line.

Helen then listed some of the groups funded by the NIF, including Adalah, B’Tselem, Breaking the Silence, Machshom Watch, Mossawa, Partners for Progressive Israel and Physicians for Human Rights. She held up the photo of an IDF soldier cradling a Nepalese child.

The caption read, “0.1% of the world is Israeli. 30% of the international medical team in Nepal is from Israel. Will the UN and BDS groups condemn Israel’s “disproportionate response.”?

Helen continued, naming Alisa Doctoroff, Michael Miller, Eric Goldstein and Jerry Levin, all officers or former officers in UJA and JCRC, as being responsible for allowing the delegitimizers to have standing. The crowd booed their disapproval.

Helen concluded, “Rejecting Israel’s legitimacy by accusing Israel of war crimes, and violations of humanitarian law, which would justify international intervention, like the International Criminal Court, is criminal.

All the condemnations are built on lies and fabrications. They must not be allowed to pass for truth. That is why we are here today and why we must continue to raise our voices against those whose greed and willful blindness lead Israel and America into a dangerous downward spiral. We won’t let it happen. ”

Other speakers followed, including Rabbi Algaze, Paul Brody, Mort Klein, Robin Ticker and Charlie Bernhaut.

They all emphasized the intolerable and dangerous de-legitimization and demonization of Israel spurred on by the BDS movement.

Final Thoughts: ”  We hope UJA heard us and will heed our messages BEFORE this years CELEBRATION of Israel Parade. ” (thank you to AFSI for this report)
