No Art for ApARTheid’s Sake’. Protest Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. [Face Book]
On February 3, 2019, New York’s Carnegie Hall hosted an outrageously expensive fundraising brunch for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO), followed by an IPO concert performance. Tickets for the IPO brunch started at $1000. Protest the Israel Philharmonic was hosted by Adalah-NY
“New York human rights advocates gathered in a noisy, musical protest in front of Carnegie Hall to demonstrate against an extravagant fundraising brunch and performance by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO). The IPO website proudly states that the Orchestra “represent[s] the State of Israel across the world.” [Mondo Weiss]
“It’s gonna be a nice warm day in the 🌞40s!!!🌞 – perfect for protesting the Israel Philharmonic’s fundraising brunch! We’ll have our own ☕️anti-apartheid brunch☕️ with Palestinian pastries and music from the Rude Mechanical Orchestra! 🎺💓🎷So come on over to Carnegie Hall at 1 p.m. and bring your friends!
BDS is being attacked in Congress! Please support this and other such demonstrations if you can.
…. tell the IPO that music should be for liberation not whitewashing occupation!”
“As the IPO’s wealthy supporters attend a lavish brunch inside to sustain its whitewashing of Israeli apartheid, we’ll be outside sustaining our love of justice with a small Palestinian brunch and music for liberation with the big freedom sounds of the Rude Mechanical Orchestra.”

“The IPO is no apolitical cultural institution.” Israel systematically deprives Palestinians of their basic rights, whether they live under Israeli military occupation, as unequal citizens in Israel, or as refugees, denied their right of return to their homeland.”
“Our protest responds to the Palestinian civil society call to boycott cultural institutions like the IPO that are complicit in sustaining Israel’s apartheid rule over the Palestinian people.” [Face Book]
“Anti-Semitic attacks are occurring with greater frequency and intensity in NYC. A contributing factor are the anti-Israel groups infestation into mainstream society in the U.S. On Sunday, February, 3 the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing inside Carnegie Hall.”
“Outside of the theater, anti-Israel jihadists will be prey upon Israeli musicians, dignitaries, theater goers and unsuspecting pedestrians as they walk by, We can not let their anti-Semitic agenda continue unopposed. We must all do our part to stop the anti-Semitic attacks! Stand up for Israel! Stand up for Am Yisrael! “[Face Book]
On Sunday, September 16th, Ari Fuld, HY”D, (may Hashem avenge his blood), was brutally murdered in Gush Etzion, Israel by a Jihadist Muslim Arab.
After exiting a store, Ari was stabbed in the back. That didn’t stop Ari. Ari chased the terrorist and shot him. He made sure that the terrorist didn’t hurt anyone else. That was Ari. Our friend and protector.
Ari was a Zionist and warrior. He served in the IDF, was a reservist, worked tirelessly to raise funds to assist the soldiers and brought us news from Israel that we would never have seen unless he broadcast it. Ari was a non-stop activist for Israel; online and on the streets. He was a father, husband, brother, son . He was loved and respected worldwide.
Video Funeral of Ari Fuld הי’ד part 1
On Thursday, September 20th, 4:30 pm outside of the Permanent Observer Mission of the “state” of “palestine a vigil was held to remember Ari Fuld. To stand up for Israel and let the “palestinians” know that targeting Jews for murder must stop.

We will not be silent as our brothers and sisters are targeted for murder because they are Jewish in Israel. Remember the warrior.
Fatah publishes children’s guide detailing how to effectively stone Jewish passersby.
“In order to hit the target, there are three conditions:
1. Stand stable and balance your legs, arms, and body well
2. Focus your gaze on the center of the target, and do not look at anything else
3. Keep the desired balance between your body and your weapon; you are the one that controls the weapon, and not the other way around
If you did not understand this, read it again, and if you still have not understood, here is a pictorial example for you.”
لإصابة الهدف هناكشروط ثلاث
١. قِف بثبات، ووازن جيداً بين قدميك ويديك وجسمك
٢. ثبّت نظرك في مركز الهدف، لا تلتفت الا الى اليه
٣. احفظ التوازن المطلوب بين جسمك وسلاحك، انت من يسيطر على السلاح لا العكس

Rocks hurled at moving vehicles have caused hundreds of injuries and many deaths, including infants killed by stones thrown at their family’s cars.
Yehuda Haim Shoham, aged 5-months; Yonatan Palmer aged 12-months (his father Asher was also killed); Adele Biton aged 3l, were killed by rocks thrown at their cars by Palestinian Arab terrorists.
The 5 terrorists convicted of murdering Adele were all teen-aged.
PMW called on UNICEF to issue a stern condemnation of Fatah’s recruiting children to commit acts of terror, since according to PMW, “Recruiting children to attempt to kill others and to endanger their own lives is clear child abuse.”
PMW has exposed similar posts by Fatah calling for violence. In one post on Facebook, Fatah urged Palestinians to “strap on your weapon,” while in others the movement called for “rage,” and to “continue the intifada.”
December 3, 2017 – 33 E. 33rd St- NYC. 12:30 PM. JDL – NY was there, countering the JVP Boycott of the Israel Birthright Gala. Even though the gala was postponed, the RETURN the Birthright protest was still on.
“Birthright was criticized by liberal Jewish groups last month after it announced that it would no longer bring groups to meet Arab-Israelis, a move the organization claimed was only temporary.
So, JVP has pledged to refrain from the sponsored trips, saying more than 1,000 people have already signed.” [Forward]
“Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP)want the Birth Right trip to include “palestine” and Gaza, so they can see the oppressed “palestinians”.
They allege the trip is racist. They allege the trip doesn’t show all sides of Israel. They allege that Birth-Right is Birth-WRONG.
This is preposterous and anti-Semitic. JVP does NOT speak for U.S. Jews!
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”.
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.
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?
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. “
Due to their pressure, Columbia administration imposed a last-minute restriction on the event’s attendance preventing many Israel supporters and other interested parties from hearing the ambassador’s speech.
Wait listed means …. NO ADMITTANCE !
Let us show the UN ambassador of the only Middle East democracy a warm welcome. Let us show our support to Students Supporting Israel at Columbia University – SSI Columbia who organized this event.
Let us send a message to the Columbia administration that the university’s responsibility is to protect and encourage free speech and civil discourse instead of restricting it.
And let us show anti-Israel hate groups that false and bigoted messages will not prevail. This is a non-partisan pro-Israel, pro free speech event!.
Flickr slide show:
What we saw outside (and others inside) was predictable. They did not fail to agitate. The SJP …. and others…. were there to SHUT DOWN Free Speech.
Video of BOTH sides – the confrontation outside Lerner
Saw them assemble to march at approx. 6:30 and then- as they began marching back and forth in front of Lerner Hall- they grew in numbers.
Glutting the sidewalk. Jamming egress for anyone just trying to walk by. And SHOUTING. CHANTING. Hateful. Nasty. Smug. Shrill.
Eventually the police brought more barricades- to clear the center of the public sidewalk. But, the noise pollution continued, unabated,
…. while other kuffeya-clad REGISTERED GUESTS continued to gain entry.
INSIDE- as predicted- was the shut Danon down phase two.
SHOUT and SHOUT and SHOUT so he can’t speak. not answer questions. after all- someone might hear the TRUTH. These fascist thugs can’t have that – EVER
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)
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. ++
Disappointed I wasn’t able to capture a more complete recording of the protest, there were many speakers. Unfortunately, it was impossible to get a good position to film the speakers . The many police officers kept pointing towards the back of the enclosure, which is useless for photographers and video. But, the signs themselves convey the purpose of this rally, speakers and signs, held true …. U.S. the time is now…. Get OUT of the U.N. !
Time to say “buh bye” to the tyrants who hijacked the UN. Let them move back to Europe (or wherever). The building is falling apart anyway and the winds of REAL change are finally HERE. NO MORE BILLIONS should go in the coffers of tyrants. ~ Man up! Move on!~
During his disappointing Middle East foreign policy address on Wednesday, December 28th, Secretary of State John Kerry spewed forth his usual litany of lies and exaggerations while threatening Israel with its very existence if she did not agree to commit suicide by capitulating to the creation of an Arab terrorist state in the Jewish heartland of Judea and Samaria.
As he uttered his didactic rhetoric, a hearty gathering of pro-Israel activists gathered outside the US Mission to the UN, protesting the despicable anti-Israel Security Council resolution passed last week, and strongly condemned Kerry’s pathetic and plaintive cries. The resolution should never have passed, except for the direct intervention of the Obama administration who gave explicit instructions to UN Ambassador Samantha Power to abstain, rather than vetoing it as has been the decades long policy of the US when it comes to Israel at the Security Council.
The rally, (coordinated by David Ben Hooren, publisher of the Jewish Voice as well as Fern Sidman, the editor of the paper), saw speaker after speaker lambast the Obama administration for its abysmal perfidy, while encouraging those gathered to “stand strong, and to stand strong with Israel.” As President-elect Trump recently tweeted, “Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”
Speakers at the rally included renowned Jewish activist and philanthropist Jeff Wiesenfeld, Executive Director of Americans for a Safe Israel, Helen Freedman, longtime Jewish activist and cantorial impresario Charlie Bernhaut, President of JCC Watch Richard Allen, former Congressional candidate Philip Rosenthal, Rabbi Gideon Shloush and prolific author, speaker and Jewish personality, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
The speakers addressed the following issues:
1) The US should end its funding of the United Nations, and better yet, relocate that bastion of infamy to another country, say, Syria or Angola.
2) The US action in the UN harms not just Israel, but the US itself. There is bipartisan understanding in Congress that Obama’s action to abstain in the UN was a terrible decision, detrimental to the US.
3) More and more people (including Democrats!) are realizing how dangerous Obama has been to the United States, and are finally acknowledging the poor state of affairs he is leaving the country in, for the next president.
4) People are also realizing that the recent and ongoing brouhaha regarding Israel in the UN, and between Israel and the Obama administration, is not just an Israeli or Jewish issue, but one that concerns the country as a whole.
5) How fitting, that the current furor is occurring during the holiday of Chanukah, when Jews celebrate the victory of a small handful – the Maccabees – against the Greeks, and the victory for religious freedom against assimilation.
Nearly 100 sign-waving, chant-shouting protesters crowded the UN as American and Israeli leaders continued to spar over the U.S. delegation’s controversial vote last week on the touchy settlement issue.
“Stop U.S. $ to the United (Arab) Nations,” and “Hussein Obama betrays Israel, protesters condemned Obama and spoke of the incoming president with hope and excitement.
I believe that the steps taken by the president here on his final 30 days in office break historical president, barriers, and present all kinds of problems — not only for the security of our most important ally, that being Israel in the Middle East, but also for potential implications on how it affects us, and our relationship to the region,” said Kevin McCullough, a syndicated writer and talk show host, who spoke at the rally.
“It is impossible to accept what President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry even were talking about this morning with any degree of seriousness. We have not been a good friend to Israel over the last eight years and it is time that we stop kicking them in the teeth at every opportunity.”
NY Jews express their frustration and disagreement with UN Resolution 2334 that calls to halt settlement construction on Palestinian-owned lands. It describes Israeli settlement activity as illegal, and demands that Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the ‘occupied’ Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem.”
“I don’t see how anybody who cares about Israel, who cares about their fellow Jews can countenance [the resolution], even if we feel as though the settlement enterprise has been in some ways mistaken.”
Wednesday’s protest took place as Secretary of State John Kerry gave his speech at the Department of State, laying down his vision for peace between Israelis and Palestinians and justifying the administration’s choice to abstain from voting on the anti-settlement resolution passed by the UN’s Security Council.
Demonstrators rallied Wednesday to protest the U.S. delegation’s controversial refusal last week to block a U.N. Security Council vote condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016 , 5:30 pm – NY’s Plaza Hotel A protest organized by Jewish Voice For Peace, co-sponsored by Code Pinkos and Adalah NY and joined by World Can’t Wait. The protestors ranted and chanted:
Irate that Netanyahu was receiving an award from the “right-wing” Hudson Institute, they marched in front of the hotel with their versions of Netanyahu’s awards.
“The 10-year, $38 billion military aid package signed between the two countries earlier the month and opposition to efforts to boycott Israel. ”
(Facebook photo by Neha Sood)
Three short videos:
The protestors carried smarmy signs like, “Natural Born Killers” (click on picture below to flip through slide show)
And banners that declared Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to be a WAR Criminal.
From the protest announcement:
“Come show the world that we do no see these individuals as heroes–but rather as criminals. Come show these war criminals that New Yorkers of conscience will not stand by while they prance around our city and pat each other on the back for their misdeeds. We will present “Bibi” with our OWN awards–ones that expose his crimes and vile behavior”
Join us as we raise our voices against Netanyahu’s regime of human rights abuses. Come show the world that New Yorkers of conscience do not welcome Netanyahu. We will present him with our own award, one that sheds light on the rights violations of the Israeli government.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was booed and met with cries of ‘Free Palestine’ after going to watch the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton”.
Melanie Colton tweeted: ‘At Hamilton… two women entered the Richard Rodgers Theater screaming, ‘Free Palestine!’ They were “escorted” out of the theatre after trying to shove their way through Netanyahu’s heavy security.
I begin this post two weeks after al Quds Day. July 14 – Bastille Day- 2016 . July has been a horrid month for the world-wide jihad. A terrorism that knows no end. These orthodox Muslims plot endlessly to kill the infidels, yet we never see it coming.

Domestic Terrorism. BLM. New Black Panthers. CAIR. Muslim Brotherhood, anything Fakestinian and all groups Socialist and Communist. Creating chaos whether HERE or in Europe, the Middle East….or…in Israel. Death to the Infidel. Revolution of the worst kind is their goal.
Whose side are you on?
Al Quds Day, 2016. Late afternoon, July 1. Times Square. The arrogant “al-Quds” protestors have returned. Mostly Muslim with the usual Communist facilitators amongst the crowd.
They demand the END of the State of Israel. Masquerading as peaceful Muslims while screaming “From the River to the Sea“. That is genocide, against the JEWS, and there is NOTHING peaceful about genocide.
Their LIES are many.
To begin with, there never was a Palestinian people. They have no history yet they claim the Holy Land belongs to Islam. Not just Jerusalem (al-quds), but also “the hill country of Samaria and Judea“. It is NOT the West Bank. But, facts are inconvenient as they accuse Israel (and the Jews) of murdering the hapless “Palestinian” Muslims.
And with the fraudulent “Nakba” meme
They nurture a powerful anti-Israel and anti-Jewish animus with this LIE.
They usurp the history of others. A violent fraud supported by the Leftists and their comrades in the media and academe. The TRUTH is an inconvenient impediment. Destroy the State of Israel by any means.
BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction) , another of their LIES supports an Israeli economic boycott. They claim that Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, is “greedy, cruel and violent”. Ignoring peaceful gestures , whether from a single Israeli citizen or the whole country. They are NOT interested in PEACE.
When I first arrived, everyone was setting up. The “Palis” and their Commie friends and the Pro-Israel supporters across avenue.
While taking pictures, I was approached by an older Muslim man. He asked my opinion on Jerusalem – aka al-Quds. He did NOT like my answer. Storming away angry telling me that “the JEWS have no claim. They came from Egypt.” [They CAME from Egypt?]
Then Cyrus Mc Goldrick, former head of CAIR-NY, approached me with a very friendly “hello”. (he likes to do that)
I returned the pleasantries, asking if he was still living in Florida. Nope. He’s now in TURKEY. Istanbul. “Really?”, said I, as he replied, “It’s not as bad as you might think. Its quite nice.” And he moved on.
As for this protest, it was not a large protest by the usual al-Quds standards. But, loud. Of, course. They are always LOUD.
The ubiquitous genocidal chants [From the River to the Sea] AND the usual Commie facilitators: Bill Doares (Workers World) and Sarah Flounders of IAC (International Action Center). All, when not chanting, making VERY loud speeches.
[Video] a view from the al-Quds side of the avenue
The Pro-Israel side was on the west side of Seventh Ave. Lead by the very vocal ADL.
And their co-host, Congressional Candidate, Dr. Phillip Rosenthal.
Video of the Pro Israel side of the avenue
After about an hour, it started to rain, so I packed up my gear. But, as I left, I heard Doares and Flounders speaking(finally). Over an hour in to the protest, NOW they start speaking….in the RAIN….. So, I used my smart phone voice-recorder. Not the best audio (due to rain and traffic) but enough that I was able to transcribe excerpts from their Communist RANTS. Angry, anti-U.S. and anti-Israel LIES. Agitprop they could spew in a coma. If you have never listened to them, Doares and Flounders, they are like a BAD movie, that needs to be heard.
We should never forget how hostile they are to everything that has made America and Israel great.
There was also a young Muslima poet and Cyrus McGoldrick, all the way from Turkey, just to M.C. al-Quds Day.
And the Neturei Karta who always confuse the passersby. That was it. Both sides shouting back and forth. And one fellow, from the Israeli side, Robert K., who spontaneously sprinted across the avenue to shake hands. To make a peaceful gesture. (apparently the officer said – NOT TODAY) as he was ushered back to the west side of 7th. (ah well…at least he tried) Israel. Jerusalem. The Middle East. The LIES: al-Quds (Jerusalem), al-Aqsa (aka the Temple Mount!), the Nakba (day of “catasrophe”) Innocents die at the hands of the Islamic Terrorists emboldened by media support. Commie support. And the “good-will of fools”. Will Truth ever prevail?
The audio transcripts – excerpted follow next.
(IAC) (Excerpted to the end)
“…. the State of Israel that exists because of the support and defense and military aide of U.S. Imperialism. Life without it, Israel could not exist a day, not a minute without U.S. Imperialism, Zionism would be a racist, rotten dream but not in fact, a …. State.
Every country that stands for independent force, they want to destroy. And yet, they are failing. They’re failing on a world scale. The Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement shows that people all over the world are finding a way to shut down Zionist quotas, Zionist economy and it has huge support that has grown so strong that now they want to pass laws against it in violation of the U.S. Constitution, by the way.
So Gov. Cuomo and Gov. Christie and all these Zionist supporters, they want to make it illegal to support the BDS Movement. I tell ya, it’s gonna make the BDS movement stronger politically.
And the terrorists across the street, the Jewish Defense League, this is a terrorist organization. They for decades in Brooklyn, and in the West Bank and Israel… they are the racist forces that come right out of Brooklyn. They made war on the Black Community and on the Palestinian Community. (cheers from crowd) They want to shut down this movement and they’re the ones that are being shut down all over the world by our unity, by our strength, by our determination.
And why? Because the Palestinian people have shown resistance, generation after generation, under the most damnable conditions. Under starvation. Under sanctions. They have resisted with every form of resistance, from the youngest to the oldest. So when we salute Palestine, we are giving a vote of confidence to the future. We are saluting resistance of all humanity. And together, together we will win. (cheers)”
Bill Doares -Workers World Party and IAC (amongst many other Commie linked organizations)
[He SHOUTS everything]
“(July 1- NYC) … those were the words of Muhammad Ali, who passed away a few weeks ago, because he, like Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela ( the U.N.) : Zionism is Racism. And that’s why it’s so good to see so many of these people, so many diverse communities of New York City, like around the world, coming out on a holiday week end … in the rain… to stand with the people of Palestine, because Palestine means diversity. Just like New York City means diversity.
… those Nazis across the street, they’re from a group called the Jewish Defense League that was originally formed to keep Black People out of Flatbush and these Black and Latino people out of the jury system and, to keep Black People from moving in to Forest Hills. They are Nazis. Today is a day of al- Quds Jerusalem. An International Day when people around the word stand with the people of Palestine. Stand against Terrorism and Racism and Bigotry.
The State of Israel will mean nothing without the end(less) of flow of tax dollars [?stolen] from our communities, our schools, our hospitals and transportation system to pay for it. It’s in the hands of the giant U.S. Military Industrial Complex and the bankers of Wall Street, Zionists mostly. It is no wonder they support Donald Trump .
None of the racists understand Israel … not just because racists love racists and bigots love bigots. Not just because anyone who’s already done all that Donald Trump is promising to do: building walls to keep people out and warning people. Because native people in the land of Palestine, their ethnicity, from a racial pure society, if there can ever be such a thing. That’s because of Israel, the racist State of Israel and the giant military plan.
Stand with the people of Palestine [Crowds CHEERS]”
Muslima Poet – this is an excerpt to the end (1:43) “…Take each others hands. Let’s be smarter than the divide and conquer. For humanity we stand together. We stand stronger. And from the threats … dividing our strength and unity. So, let’s raise our fists to the sky. Where there’s no more pain to see. Until the skies no longer bleed. In resistance we shall live, each of us stronger on our beliefs. And if in resistance we should die, our (souls) shall last for eternity. Our dreams be kept alive and the truth become plain for all to see.
One day our children will not die, and their blood will not spill upon the street. One day our mothers will not cry. When their sons and daughter will be free. One day the dream will be alive. One day we will march in victory.
One day “Palestine will be Free” From the River to the sea ( crowd) Palestine will be free. “Palestine will be Free” From the River to the sea (crowd) Palestine will be free. “Palestine will be Free” From the River to the sea (crowd) Palestine will be free. (enter Cyrus) FREE FREE Palestine!”

July 7, from Friday July 1, to the next Thursday, all hell broke loose in Dallas,Texas. A domestic act of terrorism that preceded Bastille Day by a week.
The deadliest day for police since 9/11. I did not cover the massive street action (the Day of Rage protests) as I have in the past. I’m too familiar with the arrogant hostility unleashed towards whites, sometimes , physically . Something I’ve experienced first-hand (Muslim, Black and Commie hostilities) So, I decided to not add a white face to the planned chaos. (To be a target) The police will be busy enough.
Obama and Company has left us a racially divided country ready to explode. I fear we are too close to the fire.
Just last week I was assaulted by a 60 years old – healthy but small- black woman. She ran at me – like a foot ball player. Slammed her purse (it felt like sandpaper) across my face. accusing me of getting in her way on the sidewalk. OK. This is NY. The sidewalks are crowded. But, this was a QUIET avenue and I was no where close to causing this woman a problem. She was crazy perhaps but, getting a purse slammed across your face, that is assault. Nasty. She yelled at me. Accusing me of doing something BLOCKING HER on the sidewalk (that was a bizarre accusation) She remained very aggressive as she walked away, calmly eating her ice cream sunday. Her ice cream unsullied.
Thanks Obama. Race. Division. Hostilities. Your legacy grows worse every day. BLM. Terrorists-at-large. Unchecked. Abusive. Intimidating. LETHAL. Tearing this country apart. Just as they planned all along. MLK’s dream torn asunder.
Can’t we all get along is NOT in their lexicon.
