Feb. 19, 2018. Noon The Isaiah Wall in Ralph Bunche Park, across from the U.N. where AFSI (Americans For a Safe Israel) protested “Palestinian President” Mahmoud Abbas’ Address to U.N. Security Council.
AFSI (Americans For a Safe Israel) organized the rally, joined by the New JDL-NY and opposed by members of the obscene Neturei Karta.
“On First Avenue, across from the United Nations in New York City, sits a small park, less than a quarter of an acre, named for Ralph Bunche, the first African-American recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize […] also home to the famous “Isaiah Wall” … which many people naturally associate with the United Nations and its peacekeeping.”( it’s not)
“Carved into granite, is the old prophesy of an obscure Hebrew itinerant, predicting a day that seems as far away now as it did then in ancient Mesopotamia– a day when “nation shall not lift up sword against nation, and neither shall we learn war any longer.”
Abbas and the lies of Yasser Arafat continue to thrive in the halls of the U.N. while thousands of years of Jewish history are IGNORED. DENIED.
[WaPo] “During a rare address to the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, February 20th, “Palestinian” President Mahmoud Abbas called for an international Middle East peace conference to be convened by the middle of this year and slammed the Trump administration for its recognition last December of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
[JPost] “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu summed it up nicely: Abbas “has torn off the mask and shown to the public the simple truth: . . . The root of the conflict between us and the “Palestinians” is their steadfast refusal to recognize the Jewish state in any borders whatsoever.”
“Abbas will deliver his statement in New York only weeks after US Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, delivered a scathing rebuke of the Fatah (formerly the PLO) chairman’s “lack of leadership.”[JPost]
AFSI spoke in front of “Peace Form One, a stainless-steel obelisk 50 feet (15 m) high, erected in 1980. The sculptor, Daniel LaRue Johnson …

[NY Times 2-26-18] “Jerusalem. the American Embassy set to open in Jerusalem in three months … Trump administration’s decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem … formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital … open a temporary embassy in Jerusalem in time for the 70th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel, on May 14 …”
“This is a great moment for the citizens of Israel, and this is an historic moment for the state of Israel,” Mr. Netanyahu said. (American officials also said on Friday that Sheldon G. Adelson, an American known for his hawkish support of Israel, had offered to help pay for the new embassy building.)”
“… the “Palestinians” .... for them, May 14 is the 70th anniversary of the “Nakba”, or “catastrophe,” when hundreds of thousands of “Palestinians” were expelled or fled their homes amid the hostilities surrounding Israel’s establishment ... this year’s anniversary could also fall on the eve of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting … Days later, “Palestinians” are likely to flock for Friday Prayer to the “Al Aqsa Mosque” [aka THE TEMPLE MOUNT], which has often been a flash point in the conflict between Israelis and “Palestinians”...” [NY Times]
FACT: “Why the Temple Mount Belongs to Jews and Israel [FrontPageMag]
“Rarely has there been such clarity that Israel has no partner for peace. As such, the possibility of more terrorist violence cannot be minimized. Just yesterday, Israeli authorities removed a cellphone bomb from Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus in the West Bank. It was detonated by security forces not long before 1,000 Jewish worshippers were scheduled to come to the spot considered to be the burial site of the biblical patriarch.” [Michael Goodwin: NY Post]
