Nov 12, 2017 – 4:30 to 7 pm – outside the famed New York Public Library at 5th Ave and 42nd St.
WHY? “Last year, over 500 members of the #JewishResistance marched to #FireBannon and push rising White Nationalism out of the White House.
Bannon was finally removed from his post as Chief Strategist in the White House: the people fired Stephen Bannon. (That Nazi. White Supremacist) FIRE Bannon AGAIN!”
Their many signs included: “If Not Now – When”, “Which side are you on”,”Just say NO to COLLABORATION”,”Fire Bannon” and “Endless Occupation”.
“On this day (Nov. 12) the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) invited Steve Bannon to speak at their annual gala; attempting to give Bannon a second career pitting U.S. Jews against our Muslim neighbors and rallying support for Israel’s 50-year military Occupation.
#IfNotNow NYC wants to see Stephen Bannon off to an early retirement. We’ll celebrate the movement, join in the fight against White Nationalism, the Occupation and call for freedom and dignity for all Palestinians and Israelis.
We must resist all of their attacks on Muslims and Arabs, immigrants, women, people of color, and Jews, both within and outside of the Jewish community.”

BANNON Urges Jews to Join ‘Insurgency’ Against anti-Trump Republicans. “Bannon, who left the White House in August, is now trying to raise money to defeat several sitting Republican senators he says are blocking Trump’s agenda in Washington.
“President Trump needs our back,” Bannon declared. “We’re a nation at war. This war is only going to be won if we bind together and work as partners.”
Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, in his own speech, called for centrism and warned of extremism, “The right has no influence today on college campuses, which are the future leaders of America. [haaretz.com]
And, what about Bannon’s refusal to lunch with a terrorist?
“I refused to attend a lunch meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas because I didn’t want to breathe the same air as a terrorist. I didn’t want to eat lunch with a guy that had the blood of innocent Jewish civilians on his hands. I just don’t.” Steve Bannon [Breitbart.com]
Professor Dershowitz warned of extremism, particularly pointing to the far-left,
“I think today the hard left is far more dangerous to Israel’s existence and to the safety of the Jewish community.” [haaretz.com]
