Yad Yamin NY “Solidarity with Israel” outside Friends of IDF Headquarters NY

On Wednesday, March 30th, 2022, Yad Yamin-NY, and other supporters of Israel, met across from the headquarters of Friends of IDF  Headquarters (at 60 East 42nd Street) to show SOLIDARITY with Israel.
Video Part 1- begins across from the Friends of the IDF Headquarters.

At the same time,inciting violence against Jews, here and in Israel”, “Zionaphobics” demonstrated in front of the NY Friends of IDF headquarters.
The anti Zionists declared this to be  “Land Day  (an annual commemoration of the killings of six Palestinians by Israeli forces during a general strike against land expropriation in 1976.)

Inciting violence against Jews.
THIS is anti-Zionism.
And Anti-Zionism is one form of anti-Semitism.

Even though anti-Semitic crimes are up FOUR HUNDRED PERCENT in NYC, these anti-Zionists continue to call for Intifada, a pogrom targeting Jews in Israel.

.Calling for Death to Israel (and the U.S.) Calling for the murder of Jews right after a week of terror in Israel. The anti-Zionist -“Zionaphobics”  demanded the closure of the Friends of the IDF.

This must not go unanswered.
This is not the time to be silent.

Re “LAND DAY” 2022, a statement from an anti-Zionist sponsor explaining their protest:

“We mark the 46th Palestinian Land Day on 30 March 2022. This day is an occasion to celebrate, intensify and uphold Palestinian resistance to Zionism, colonialism, apartheid and occupation, recalling those whose lives have been stolen in defense of the land and people of Palestine and to organize and struggle for return and liberation: from the river to the sea. As the Palestinian people continue to rise up and take action in resistance to defend their people and liberate their land, the Day of the Land is not only an anniversary but a day of living struggle to uproot colonialism from Palestine.” (samidoun)

Sponsors were Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and Within our Lifetime • United for Palestine 

Video Part 3 – NYPD was very present for these two groups. No incidents. Just lots of anti-Israel chants.

..They challenged settler-funding Zionist organizations that fund Israel: Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the Central Fund of Israel and the American Friends of Ateret Cohanim.

#DefundRacism and #DefendPalestine.

Resist “settler colonialism”. Defend “palestine”.
Show solidarity with the “palestinian” people.
End Israel’s “settler colonialism”.
One-way narratives are dangerous.
