Islamic finance is not confined to Muslim countries but is spread over Europe, the United States and the Far East; nor is it limited to Islamic borrowers, but is also used by many companies as an alternative source of funds. The principles of Islamic banking are similar in many respects to conventional banking, asset financing and project financing principles commonly used and applied under English law worldwide. Islamic Finance is the application of the Sharia to the finance sector.
So Nasdaq bowed to the CAIR Lobby ’cause money talked.
But, really, Nasdaq: CAIR. Hamas. Sharia. Have you no shame?
By the time they actually started – after much waiting – Washington Square was packed. 5 pm was really just hurry up and WAIT.
We had to wait, chant, and wait some more …. while our Muslim brothers and sisters finished their Maghrib (sunset) prayers. Call a presser to coincide with their prayers; to impress the media with their faithfulness. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Spread the Prayers. Spread the Love….
Finally, Afaf Nasher, Executive Director of CAIR-NY, Muslim. hijabbed and photogenic, began to introduce the speakers.
Missing, BTW, was Linda Sarsour. Muslim. Photogenic. Sarsour led most of these protests as the hijabbed-face of Islam. Groomed for public office, but she seems to have disappeared from the forefront of this diverse and inclusive enclave.
Even so, there was no shortage of local and State government politicians, anti-Trump and in-the-pocket of the pro-Hamas “CAIR Demolition Express” .
The short individual videos of the speakers, throws the spotlight on the outrageously predictable speeches of NYC’s hard-core Marxist politicians. To paraphrase Sun Tzu,another step in the “Know Thy Enemy” loop. We have ignored their agenda for too long.
Slideshow of the Emergency Rally protest
To keep the American reformation from happening they “Dance with the Devil” (shaitan). Preaching to “the Oppressed”. The Good. The Needy. The “Tired and Poor”. A recipe for Deceit. Duplicity. For Treason.
Repetition is their drug of choice: “NAZI. Trump. Fascist. Trump. Racist Trump AND Dump Trump. Dump Trump. Dump Trump.” He must be stopped. Impeach Trump! (amidst cheers, cheers. and more cheers)
The prominent agitators behind this presser/ rally/protest : CAIR / Workers Party/Communist Party/ Socialist Party. SEIU. NYCLU. The NY City Council. All seek treasonous ways to create and maintain the disaffected masses. Their goals never change. Agitate. Propagate. Exterminate. (rinse and repeat) Agitate. Propagate. Exterminate. (rinse and repeat ) Agitate. Propagate. Exterminate. (rinse and repeat)…. ad nauseum ….
We are at war. Traitors from within. Temper tantrums from the Left. And the media still LOVES them.
The “resistance” is a collection of elites, from actors at award shows to fashion magazines to tech billionaires, decrying a popular revolt against their rule. They are not the resistance. They are dictators in exile. They had their chance to impose their vision on the people. And they lost.
The protests aren’t a revolution. They’re a counterrevolutionary reaction by a fallen establishment.”
The People have spoken. At the ballot box. We the Revolution!

Next day, CAIR thanked all the little people and their political sycophants on face book for joining The Resistance:
Our most sincere thanks to the thousands of New Yorkers who joined us last night to take a powerful stand against President Trump’s attacks on Muslim and immigrant New Yorkers. More than 3,000 people joined this remarkable rally, and there wasn’t a single arrest during the CAIR-NY sponsored event (though we were saddened to learn of several arrests during a later splinter demonstration).
Yesterday was the easy part, now we tackle the long, strenuous task of building the legal and advocacy capacity to fight any attack on our Muslim and undocumented neighbors. Please consider making a donation today to help cover the costs of last night’s demonstration and build CAIR-NY’s ability to advocate for all New Yorkers. We don’t receive any funding from our national organization, so CAIR-NY depends on the New York community for our financial support. http://www.cair-ny.org/donate.
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.
Pro-Israel -Pro-Idan Raichel Rally was held outside the Beacon Theatre in NYC, April 12, 2015.“Ironically, Adalah-NY was protesting against the appearance of the Israeli mega-sensation, Idan Raichel who was performing at the Beacon later that night. Ironic, because Raichel collaborates with and has created Israeli fusion music with Ethiopian Jews, Yemenite Jews, and Jews from other diverse traditions, as well as global fusion music with musicians from a large variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds from around the world.
Raichel is a unique Israeli cultural ambassador, whose music is a bridge to mutual understanding.”
There was a solid counter-protest, between 125-200, who supported Israel as well as Idan Raichel; challenging the predictable lies and agitprop sung and chanted by the anti-Israel – BDS protestors.
A Pinocchio balloon loomed large over the pro-Israel/Pro-Idan supporters, aimed straight at the anti-Israel BDS crowd.
Pinocchio mocked perfectly the stream of lies that came from the Adalah’s as they maligned Idan Raichel and Israel.
Those who came out to counter the Adalah/BDS’rs, sang happily and carried Israeli flags, as well as the American flag. “Our side out-numbered theirs by much more than 10:1 and exhibited tremendous energy and Ahavat Yisrael (Love of Israel).”
“On the evening of April 12th, on Manhattan’s upper West Side, the usual anti-Zionist and pro-Palestinian groups such as Adalah-NY, the BDS National Committee, and the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel protested the performance of an Israeli musician.
Probably the most insane leftist protest ever. Idan Raichel and apartheid? If it weren’t so sad, most Israelis would burst out laughing.
They had a sound system which blared anti-Israel, angry “black”-style rap hate music. Most were white leftists; two were visibly Arab-looking.”
“It read: “What kind of musician is an ambassador for apartheid? Serenades soldiers who destroy homes, lives, and land? Feels happy with a state characterized by racism, violence, and land theft?”
” My friends– Welcome to Upside-Down Land.”
(Continuing with Chesler) She engaged with one of the white pro-“Palestine” women (Sherry Wolfe) who told Chesler that “the people you are covering for endorse genocidal hatred and violence.”
The response, straight out of the Ivory Tower of multi-cultural relativism was this:
“We have our narratives and you have your narrative”
“At the moment in history when Syrians are massacring Palestinians in the Yarmouk camp, about which neither President Obama nor the PLO seem to be doing anything— This is how anti-Zionist pro-Palestinians chose to spend their time.”
