STOP Muslim Activist Linda Sarsour Keynote Speaker at CUNY Graduation

April 27, 2017. 4:30 pm. We gathered outside CUNY’s midtown Manhattan offices because Linda Sarsour, anti-Zionist, pro-Sharia Muslim, has been announced as their Keynote speaker for the June 1, 2017 graduation of CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy. THIS is an OUTRAGE.


The JDL was there as the protests begin.


The JDL demanded that anti-Zionist, Linda Sarsour, be dropped as  a CUNY Commencement speaker. NO to Sarsour!


“Governor Cuomo, NOT with Public Funds!” and CUNY – “Drop Linda Sarsour as  Keynote speaker.


Coming NEXT- on JUNE 1 –  Pamela Geller and AFDI will be protesting outside the Commencement.

“We will be there. We will protest — this will not stand. Be there June 1st at Harlem’s Apollo Theater at 253 West 125th Street, from 5 – 7:30pm

CUNY has invited a pro-terror, pro-sharia, anti-semite to give the keynote commencement address. And they will not reconsider.”

“Universities have dis-invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Ann Coulter, Milos; legions of conservative thinkers and voices in defense of freedom. But, a vicious, pro-sharia, Jew-hater they will defend to the death and that is it right there. They fear jihad. They fear Islamic supremacists.

They know no harm will come to them if they smear, defame, libel or cancel us. They know we don’t destroy, maim, behead like Sarsour supporters and their violent running dogs on the left.”

“CUNY is defending its decision to honor pro-terror Jew hater Linda Sarsour with the Commencement keynote address.

The norming of evil. Such sanction is so malignant and so evil, it cannot be ignored.There is a responsibility for the time we are living in.  That is why AFDI has organized a protest of CUNY’s Keynote Speaker, pro-terror, anti-Semite Linda Sarsour on June 1.”

         Please RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/1766093383704173/

JOIN the No to Sarsour protest outside the Apollo Theater at 253 West 125th Street.  June 1st, from 5 – 7:30pm. Be There!

++  For more info on Sarsour see these links below that reported on CUNY’s obscene decision++

From CBS  Local:

… state Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said Sarsour’s activisim – and her support of Sharia Law – makes her unfit to by the speaker at the June commencement.

“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing,” Hikind said.

Hikind was referring to a tweet Sarsour put out on Oct. 11, 2015, showing a young boy apparently throwing rocks at Israelis with the caption saying, “the definition of courage.”

From Breitbart:

Anti-Israel, pro-Sharia Law leftist activist Linda Sarsour will deliver the commencement speech at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health on June 1.

CUNY is a public university that is paid for by taxpayer funds.

“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” Barbara Aaron, chief of staff to CUNY Graduate School of Public Health dean Ayman El-Mohandes, told The Daily Caller.

From Fox News:

A Muslim woman (LINDA SARSOUR) who has referred to “Zionist trolls” and lauded the “courage” of of rock-throwing Palestinians will deliver this year’s keynote address at the commencement ceremony of a New York City university.

Linda Sarsour is listed as a featured speaker for the June 1, 2017, graduation at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy, according to the school’s website.

We are excited to announce that our inaugural commencement ceremony will feature three powerful public health and social justice leaders:

Honorary Doctor of Science
Chirlane McCray, First Lady of New York City, will receive an honorary Doctor of Science in Public Health degree in recognition of her leadership of ThriveNYC, the most comprehensive mental health plan of any city or state in the nation.

Champion of Public Health Award
Mary Bassett, Commissioner of the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, will receive the Champion of Public Health award for her transformational work addressing population health in New York City.

Keynote Address
Linda Sarsour, co-organizer of the National Women’s March and former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, will deliver the keynote address.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, says it is “nuts” that a taxpayer-funded institution like CUNY would invite a supporter of Shariah law to speak, CBS New York reported.

“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing,” Hikind told the station. “I mean, it’s just nuts. It makes no sense. It’s crazy to have this woman be the person who’s going to speak to the students.”

Linda Sarsour … daughter of “Palestinian” immigrants  and DARLING of the LEFT

… has said in her Tweets, referring to “Zionist trolls” and states (that ) “Nothing is creepier than Zionism.”  She SUPPORTS Violence!

Sarsour’s anti-Israel tweets include a photo of a young Palestinian boy with a rock in each hand. It is captioned: “The definition of courage. #Palestine”

CUNY. Stop this Madness. Say NO to Sarsour!

Linda Sarsour, #Women For Syria NYC Union Sq

NYC – 6 pm – Union Square. April 13, 2017.  Linda Sarsour, darling of the Left; adored, respected, was host of the  #Women For Syria Vigil

In New York this Saturday, Women’s March organizers are planning vigils in 34 cities in the U.S. and abroad to call attention to the plight of the Syrian people and to demand a humanitarian response to the situation. Hundreds will call for the United States to take in Syrian refugees.


We will stand with them to push that rhetoric even further:

– Solidarity with all those displaced by bombs, markets, or discrimination

Abolish borders, and the nationalism and racism that depend on them

Free entry for Syrian refugees, and everyone else!”

 “NYC’s Women For Syria vigil is to be led by Muslim activist, Linda Sarsour, National co-chair of the Women’s March.

Sarsour is the Exec Director of the Arab-American Association of New York.  She is a “proud Muslim woman” who finds no fault with CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood and supports Sharia LAW who became one of the main organizers of the recent Women’s March on Washington and now, was a leader for their next project, #WomenForSyria 

The crowd was comprised of the usual Leftists, anti-Israel protesters and ‘social justice” warriors, like “NO! REFUSE Fascism“.

#WomenForSyria makes the claim that Americans are waking up:

[…] sections of the United States have begun to wake up and take to the streets, confronting the bourgeois state and the murdering racist police that protect it.”

As Linda took the ‘stage’, speaking with her usual THICK Brooklyn accent, she reminded this small but very supportive crowd that she’s just a GIRL from Brooklyn. Deftly adding a convenient photo-op by holding a friend’s toddler.

Video of Sarsour’s opening speech was engaging, but scattered. Predictably, she managed to include mention of “Palestinian” solidarity and Islamophobia.

The United States must take-in MORE Syrian refugees. A plea I’ve heard often over the past 5 years, during Obama’s presidency and now Trump’s. SYRIAN REFUGEES must be given sanctuary.

++ A brief look back at previous mostly anti-Assad, Sanctuary for Syrian Refugees signs and flyers; the anti-Bush, anti-Obama screeds etc, in posts from Sept 2012, Aug 2013, Sept 2013Aug 2014, Sept 2015, Dec 2015 ++

In 2013, from a World Can’t Wait protest. A familiar message while holding Assad’s two-star flag. [Not the revolution three-star flag.]

 In 2013, World Can’t Wait, DEFENDING Assad?

https://thesilentmajority.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/flyer-copy1.jpg?w=345&h=486

A 2013 Face book complaint felt misled by the “World Can’t Wait” action:

facebook copy


By 2014, the message was clearly against Assad and gassing Syrians.

Back to 2107. A man from Refuse Fascism ranted that Trump does NOT care about the Beautiful Children. Saving the Children is just a U.S. war machine ploy. The Commie contingent fomenting turmoil. confusion. conflicting messages.

But, saving the refugees. the women. the babies. the families from the terrors of gassing has complications; caveats that preclude thanks.

From their press release: 

“We are outraged that the President and his cabinet are banning the very refugees that are escaping the same terrorism we are claiming to fight. The United States has taken in a very small number of Syrian refugees. We demand that we be a sanctuary and safe haven for Syrian refugees. We call on the administration to let in at least 75,000 refugees. This will help alleviate some of the suffering of the children and their families. There is no easy solution — but providing Syrians with a life of safety and security is the least we can do.”

Amongst the few speakers I heard was a Muslim man, a social justice leader and best friend of Linda’s; a male ally.

Followed by a Christian Syrian woman.

The Christian speaker mentioned that there are NO opposing factions in Syria. Then WHY are there TWO flags?

From Wiki: there are currently two governments claiming to be the de jure government of Syria, using different flags to represent the state. The incumbent government, led by Bashar al-Assad and the Ba’ath Party, is using the red-white-black United Arab Republic flag in use since 1980; while the Syrian Interim Government, led by the Syrian National Coalition – seeking to overthrow the Assad government – readopted the green-white-black Independence flag in 2012.

AND this clarification:  “The Assad regime is backed by Iran and other Shias.

2012–present, Flag used by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces
2012–present, Flag used by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces
1980–present, Syrian Arab Republic
1980–present, Syrian Arab Republic

Sounds like factions, to me. But, in Union Square, we saw only the flag of the revolution opposing Assad.

Peace and Love. Love not War.

>A young woman, Hibah Javed, stands with friends at #WomenforSyria

Apparently these Social Justice warriors are THE BEST arbiters of Peace. Linda said we must LISTEN to the SYRIANS, they are the only ones qualified on how to deal with Assad etc. All decisions should come from SYRIANS.

[From 2013 – Times Sq]

So, if Syrians are the only ones qualified to fix the Syrian problems. WHY aren’t they fixing them? IN Syria? And , why is the U.S. being pressured so take in Syrian refugees? More and more.

Sarsour has the answer (in Salon):

“We absolutely have to take responsibility for the refugee crisis. Our flawed foreign policy in the Middle East has created the fertile ground for groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. We can’t act like we have nothing to do with that.”

         Sarsour continued

“Hate is not going to divide us. People need to be held accountable for hate speech … words that are inspiring actual violence against innocent people who have nothing to do with these terrorist attacks happening.”

Who is doing the HATING? From today’s gathering, one would surmise it’s America. America is characterized as a racist, hate-filled State. America, she is BAD.

“Stop the War. Stop the Hate.” Refers only to the U.S. imperial war machine. No one else seems to be responsible.

Sept 2015 – The Nation explains why:

“The Syrian civil war has displaced more than 4 million people, most of them to other countries in the region—though conspicuously not to the Persian Gulf states or Saudi Arabia, friend to the West and armorer of Islamist fighters in Syria. The rise of the Islamic State, or ISIS—now terrorizing Syria and Iraq and threatening neighboring countries—was sparked by the aftermath of the Iraq invasion and further fueled by the misguided tactics of the United States and Britain in Syria. Yet the United States has accepted just 1,500 Syrian refugees since the civil war began.”

Listen UP President Trump, the #Women For Syria are calling you to task:

“If you stop bombing and OCCUPYING their countries, there won’t be MILLIONS of refugees trying to flee…”

 AMERICA, YOU MADE THEM. LET THEM IN.

Part 2 – A Day Without A Woman Strike with Sharia Compliant Linda Sarsour

Part 2. March 8, 2017. Noon. 59th and Fifth avenue. Part 1 link >>here>> The crowd was jammed around the stage, from all sides – no elbow room, sight-lines poor. A Day Without a Woman Strike. Obscenely popular.
Amidst a sea of Red and PINK, a lot of foolish women worshiping at the altar of sharia loving feminazis like Linda Sarsour. SAD. Cameras on all sides struggling to get a shot of Sarsour, whose pursuit of public office, Brooklyn Borough President or even Mayor NYC, looks more and more probable. They worship her. The Anti-Trump Women’s Movement Teams Up With Islamist Terrorist ,Linda Sarsour, Islamist apologist and activist, a supporter of shariah law. Catching her speech, recording it, was high on my bucket list. Sarsour always needs to be heard not just seen.

I had a difficult time filming Sarsour, photographers crowded so tightly at the front of the stage but what matters …  you hear every bloody word.

The gist is, Republicans – Bad. Some men – always bad, like melanin-challenged Repubs, which makes, of course, America Bad. After a couple of other speakers, I moved on. Forgetting there was a ‘march’ on the books. I focused on the crowd. By now it had swelled from 59th to 58th and across the avenue into Grand Army Plaza.


I wound up missing phase two: THE MARCH.  Around 1:30 the sharia compliant feminazis marched arm-in-arm to Trump International Tower. Blocking the streets, were Sarsour and approximately 12 of her minions [see Womens March Team Bios ]

They staged an arrest – see womens’ march twitter feed coming from INSIDE the paddy wagon.  Hard times? Really? I think not.

(LINKS below of more arrest coverage)

Huff Po :  Organizers Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour, co-chairs of January’s Women’s March on Washington, emerged from a police precinct exhausted but optimistic, greeted by a couple dozen activists who had waited to give them food and support. Police said 13 people were arrested. Also, Women’s March co-chair “Bob” Bland.

Free Beacon

The Fader

The Daily Wire

Back to the speakers portion of the protest/rally. I heard not a critical word from Sarsour or her comrade sisters-in-arms ( like Faiza Ali who spoke as well) about the horrors of Sharia Law.

No one mentioned the INTERNATIONAl, GLOBAL abuses in ISLAMIC countries; heaped on women, children, homosexuals (lesbians) trans- genders

PLAYLIST 3 short VIDEOS

Excerpted transcription from one video:

Hey, New York, whats-up? […. ] I stand before you as a girl from Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY. (cheers) […] Trump does not have respect for women but he also doesn’t know the POWER of women. Despite ATTEMPTS by Trump and Republicans to diminish women, we know our value and we know that America does not function without us. (cheers) We know that this GLOBE doesn’t function without us.

Two years ago when I visited Palestine, I had a woman tell me that women will be the leaders of the revolution because we’ve (??) half the population and  we ARE half the population. (cheers)

Today I strike for every woman, who like me, couldn’t pull together enough money to afford college and had to work a 9 to 5 job and a retail job. Or went in to massive debt because they had to pay to go to college.

I strike for every incarcerated (women) out there, because women are the fastest growing population behind bars and “enough is enough”.

I strike for every woman and every family torn apart by deportation. And for every (women) [??] that we are less than men.

I strike for trans-women who keep on being murdered on our streets and I. Have. Said. ENOUGH! There is a massive resistance movement that is growing. We are a part of it. But, we need to put our bodies on [??]

We need to stand, to stand-up for black women. We need to stand-up for Palestinian women. We need to stand-up for Southeast Asian women. We need to stand for ALL women. (CHEERS) Because equal pay is not just equal pay for white women (I love ya’ll) But, equal pay should be equal pay for ALL of us. And we should not go to sleep knowing that we can go home and [??]

So I leave you with this song. [Sarsour joins singing] “Ain’t gonna let know body turn us around. Turn us around. Turn us around. Ain’t gonna let nobody turn us around. We gonna keep on a-walkin’, keep on ta-alkin’, marchin’ on to Freedom Land.” Thank you, New York.

Nope. It’s all about this country. America: Bad. America, where Individualism Rules. (for now) Even obscenity is OKAY. (for now)America, where these privileged educated women can rant, without FEAR, about their imagined enemies. Spewing their fantastical version of abuse, while ignoring the real enemy of women, children AND men- of the free world: Islamic Global Terror . The  CRICKETS were very LOUD

IF ONLY- they understood and cherished the country they live in. Where their white privileged daughters will have the same GOOD life as their privileged mothers. (As long as there is No Sharia Law allowed here)
The next Generation will suffer? WHY?

Linda Sarsour Leads A Day Without A Woman Strike NYC

 The Anti-Trump Women’s Movement Teams Up With Islamist Terrorist  and Linda Sarsour, Islamist apologist and activist,  a supporter of shariah law. Linda was our HOST for the day at 59th st and Fifth Avenue. Noon and the sidewalks were jammed, both sides with a sea of Red and PINK. A lot of foolish women worshiping at the altar of sharia loving feminazi, Linda Sarsour. SAD.

Banner4.png

“Anti-Trump activism seems to have little to do with the political arts required to win elections — finding common ground, forging alliances, making friends. Instead all of these demonstrations are about denouncing enemies, and making yourself feel better about the November defeat by gathering publicly with those who share your rage. This sort of thinking leads to such self-defeating acts as interrupting traffic in places like New York City (where Trump got 18 percent of the vote) or San Francisco (9 percent).

If you want to persuade working-class Trump voters in Wisconsin to join your cause, annoying rich liberal Democrats trying to get to work a thousand miles away is a strange way to go about it.” [NY Post]

A second post will follow soon.

“I am Muslim, Too” Fools and Tools Return to Times Square

I am Muslim, too has returned, proclaiming across Times Square: We Stand With American Muslims!


An I Heart Muslims event organized by the Foundation For Ethnic Understanding — a coalition of religious groups led by record label founder Russell Simmons, Rabbi Marc Schneider (and others)

1486586933833
The crowd was jammed, of course, with all the  UWS (upper west side) and Brooklyn Liberal Jews. Signs advertising their blind obedience with “I am a Jew. Today, I’m a Muslim too’ and  Muslims, of course, filled out the crowd..

Otherwise- the claim by comic, Dean Obeidallah (the Muslim MC) that we were surrounded by a SEA of Brown faces [stretching to 57th st] was GREATLY exaggerated. [See more in Flickr slideshow]

DSC_7770

But, how else would Dean be able to lead with his fake-news punch-line LIE, that Trump’s Florida audience had been a sea of angry white faces filled with HATE. (obviously he didn’t see the black trump supporters in Melbourne, Florida. Sitting proudly behind trump, with signs held prominently towards the cameras.

Screen shot from itv.com

stream_img
BTW- co hosting with Obeidallah was lesbian, Jewish comic, Judy Gold. Her level of ignorance re Islam and its deathly intolerance for homosexuals obviously runs DEEP. Nope. the truth is always inconvenient.

SO – onward  and upward with I am a MUSLIM, Too – Part Two. Starting things out was the comic co-hosts who screamed us into auditory hell, followed by that that great humanitarian, Def jams’ own Russell Simmons.

Simmons gave a speech to be expected,  ‘We are here, unified, because of Donald Trump, so we won’t speak too harshly of him tonight – today. We want to thank him for bringing us together. Middle America’ has been misled. The seeds of hate that were small, and maybe just ignorance, cannot be watered. That hate cannot grow’. Anti-Trump, Pro- Muslim. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Susan Sarandon. The token STAR of the event, gave a DEEP-voiced speech (my god- what happened to her voice) Pro-forma leftist blather as she railed against Trump’s America destroying the constitution and ending with ‘We will fight hatred with love’ and OF COURSE, I am a MUSLIM, too.

Rabbis and pastors – imams, a Sikh, a Buddhist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Mennonite, Seventh Day Adventist, Baptist and Hindu – all gave short speeches praising Islam.

As did Rabbi Marc Schneier (President Foundation For Ethnic Understanding) who twice in one short speech proclaimed, I am a Muslim, Too , followed by a sequence of Takbirs (Allah is Greater) … [1;13 in the video]

Ashamed of being Americans in what they claim to be an INTOLERANT America.

Local politicians and civil rights advocates, too. Parading their ignorance of Islam’s INTOLERANT history towards Judaism and Christianity, even NOW in the 21st century. No matter what the historically intolerant facts reveal about Islam, they shouted – each one of them – I AM A MUSLIM, TOO.

So, as the pathetic display of naive inclusiveness and good will continued for the cameras, we heard the required Muslim prayers; allahu akbars and takbirs from the stage . (even got the extra treat of some prayers at the side of the stage)


Linda Sarsour
,
Brooklyn-born Palestinian-American activist,  “I am unapologetically Muslim, all day, every day,” she told the cheering crowd. “I am not afraid because fear is a choice; it is not a fact. So today I ask you, in the true grit and spirit of a New Yorker, that you choose courage in the face of fear.”

Sarsour was also touted as one of the proud organizers of the DC Women’s march .
Fist bumping and ONE finger umma pumping Sarsour. The symbolism did not go unnoticed.

Sarsour BTW resurfaced after seeming to be persona non grata at some recent Muslim pressers down town. But, here she was  – front and center –  along with intifada NYC’s Debbie Almontaser.

nyc-intifada-copyright

The media war for the hearts and minds of a naive America, whose desire to Love Muslims (Islam is off the table), this circus was the darling of the media for about 4 hours on Sunday, Feb 19.

A circus that will continue to play across the country, dominating the media.  Enjoyed. Unchallenged.


As long as the Hate Trump machine rolls on, these LOVE fests will continue. Appearing soon at a school, college and artistic venue near you.

The Future is a terrible thing to waste.

“Syrian Refugees Welcome” & “Dump Trump” Columbus Circle (12-10-15)

Thursday – Dec 10, 2015 –   NYC . “Stand in Solidarity with Iraqi and Syrian Refugees” – Columbus Circle

Lurking in the background,  COMMUNIST and PROUD, the white and mostly Jewish Communist/Soc/Prog facilitators …
From Daniel Greenfield: ‘The Left’s Muslim Replacement Theology for Jews . Muslims are the new Jews; time to get rid of the old Jews.

grandson-jewish-refugees1

 As I arrived – agitprop – screeds – chants – droned on and on to the ubiquitous beat of a drum

It was United Nations “Human Rights Day” held under the statue of that “racist, murdering Christoforo Columbo.
Even Obama was getting slammed by some in the crowd, “Trump Slanders Muslims, Obama Bombs Them”
Their voices rang loud and clear through-out the noisy traffic circle:  “Dump Trump “,”There is no Debate, Trump Equals Hate”,”Say it Loud, Say it Clear, Refugees Are Welcome Here”,”From Mexico to Palestine, Border Walls Are A Crime”, etc, ad nauseum.
I spotted almost immediately, one protestor’s sign (Keep Syrians Out) peering confidently above the crowd

Part 1  video – chants as the event was beginning –

More than one angry young woman, mostly Muslimas, indicted the United States as imperialist and racist . The signs below suggests, “Will Trade Refugees For Racists” and “Grief has no Borders”.

,

Another sign held by a Muslima, welcomes us all to the Fourth Reich.
Sign after sign carried on about that “Racist Donald Trump”, Wall Street (and Donald Trump), Migrant workers (and Donald Trump) and the Central Park Five – with a picture of Donald Trump (whatever)

For an hour and a half this crowd chanted while laughing and making merry, I guess, about the virtues of atheistic Communism.  Even so, one Christian Leftie (she seemed to be a Pastor of some sort) managed to carry a pithy Bible sign.

 Mirna Haidar, lead organizer at the Arab American Association of New York, claimed that anti-Muslim comments like Trump’s are about far more than words.

“It’s violence,” argued Haidar (speaking above) a refugee from Lebanon who came to the United States in 2010.

Haidar says she’s frightened by the recent political climate, combined with the rise in hate crimes targeting MuslimsLittle did I know that here, I will face fear, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and arabophobia


The Most Dangerous Terrorist groups in the USA
are the Republicans and Democrats”?  But…what about the  Isis. Daesh. The Muslim Brotherhood. Al Qaeda!! ” FREEDOM FROM FEAR” proclaims the signs.

Other signs: “Can You Hear the Beating Heart of every Refugee” and “The Jewish Community is United Against Fascism”

While ” on the pedestal-turned-stage, seasoned Syrian activist Hamid Imam led the crowd in chants (“Dump Trump” and “Donald Trump, Listen Here. Refugees are Welcome Here”) He gave an impassioned speech calling for the dismantling of both ISIS and the Assad regime. “The only way to end the suffering is to end the war,” urged Imam, a refugee from ar-Raqqah who now studies social work at Rutgers.”

PART 2  video :  [please note at 00:43 and 2:32 the counter protestor holding up a sign “Keep Syrians Out]

  

Hussam, a refugee from the besieged Syrian city of Homs who came to New Jersey four months ago, exposed the cowardly racism of the fear-mongers by describing the actual events driving millions of people from their homes. An activist in the movement against the dictator Bashar al-Assad, Hussam talked about the last protest he attended, where the regime fired live ammunition on the crowd.

“I fled the country for my children, to take them away from the killings,” he said to the crowd through a translator. “But we hope to God we will go back.” As Sarah Aziza reported for Bedford and Bowery, after that last comment, many in the crowd shouted back, “Yes, you will!”

 Hosam stressed that he considered himself a victim of ISIS, and emphasized that “anyone who thinks ISIS is Islam is very wrong. Islam is a religion of peace. We greet one another by saying, ‘Peace to you.’

Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York which co-sponsored the rally , spoke like she was running for office (and those in the know) have no doubt that’s where she’s headed : Elected Office.

Hate is not going to divide us,”. “People need to be held accountable for this hate speech. These are not just words; they are words that are inspiring actual violence against innocent people who have nothing to do with these terrorist attacks happening.”

Sarsour told Salon, in the past few weeks, as presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Ben Carson have ramped up their Islamophobic rhetoric and proposed explicitly anti-Muslim policies, there has been a rapid increase in the number of attacks and threats against Muslim Americans.

“We absolutely have to take responsibility for” the refugee crisis. Our flawed foreign policy in the Middle East has created the fertile ground for groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. We can’t act like we have nothing to do with that.”

Linda Sarsour, the safe face of  a ‘moderate’ Islam.  Just don’t read or listen to her racist screeds and the electorate can remain blissfully unaware . (Link to her video from multi-faith menorah lighting on Dec 12)


SARSOUR
  tweeted – “This country right here was built on the backs of black people and immigrants”

America – BAD.  (The Donald VERY Bad)


They have the answers –  bloviating from every sign:


Another sign : “If you stop bombing and OCCUPYING their countries, there won’t be MILLIONS of refugees…. etc”


As I left, this banner below caught my eye:  Halkların Demokratik Kongresi. The HDP is seen as the Turkish variant of the Greek SYRIZA and the Spanish Podemos parties, similar in their anti-capitalist stance

DSC_6122 copyThe Peoples’ Democratic Party originates from the Peoples’ Democratic Congress (Halkların Demokratik Kongresi, HDK), a platform composed of various groups including left wing parties Revolutionary Socialist Workers’ Party, Labour Party, Socialist Party of the Oppressed, Socialist Democracy Party, Socialist Party of Refoundation, the Greens and the Left Party of the Future DSC_6122 copy2

Human Rights. The U.N. vs the U.S. Accusations of oppression by those who are the real oppressors. (Not the US) Which begs these final questions, “Who are the actual oppressors? Who is actual purveyor of racism and hatred?”

Pamela Geller asks, “Do Muslims Around the World Really Hate the United States? Yes.”

The hatred of infidels is a religious imperative in Islam. No matter how fast we dance, appease, pay, accommodate, and submit, the hatred and holy war will not cease. On the contrary, the more we submit and reward the hatred and terror, the more we will have to surrender.

Linda Sarsour (& others) Shed “Light on Darkness” – Hanukkah in Bklyn 2015

It was Chanukkah. Saturday, December 12, 2015. Brooklyn.
Residents protest anti-Muslim violence.
“Residents of all faiths united against the exclusion of Syrian refugees. ”  
Shed Light on Darkness this Hanukkah
!”
#WeAreBetterThanThis

“At the December 12, 2015 candle lighting ceremony at Brooklyn Borough Hall: Rabbi Ellen Lippmann, Cantor Lisa Segal, politicians, dozens of members of Kolot Chayeinu  and rabbis, pastors, imams from all over Brooklyn, standing together to Shine Light on the refugee crisis and rising ‘Islamophobia’.

Organizers say the goal was to send a message that America is a nation of refugees and that it must continue to keep its doors open.


Daniel Greenfield describes perfectly the nature and associations of the crowd gathered in Brooklyn. If you had no idea who they are – you will NOW.

Even though Jews are the most common victims of religious hate crimes, not Muslims, Susan Talve (of the anti-Israel group T’ruah)  added anti-Semitism only as an obligatory afterthought. Jewish lives don’t matter. Not to radical leftist clergy.

Because I was filming, I needed to find some pictures as well. So, Thank You TWITTER! (and Facebook).

tweetedBeautiful crowd outside @BPEricAdams office showing love to their Brooklyn Muslim neighbors during #Hanukkah.

 FYI –  (Channel 12) seemed to be the ONLY MEDIA that filmed the event as  “Residents protest anti-Muslim violence”

(12/13/15) BROOKLYN – Members of Brooklyn’s Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities came together on the steps of Borough Hall Saturday night to protest hatred they say is fueling anti-Muslim violence.

Residents of all faiths united against the exclusion of Syrian refugees.They say anti-Muslim violence is getting out of control.“I was allowed into this country,” said supporter Harry Rayman. “I feel it’s anti-American for us not accept a number of refugees here.”

[TSM – Rayman doesn’t clarify, when,where or why he was a “refugee” – a term used too loosely, of late]

My last two videos from this menorah event: Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer (Refugee Advocate & Educator)   [Jews For Racial and Economic Justice)]  and [HIAS] “my religious tradition teaches to place human dignity & respect above all else.” She leads with the Torah and how we are to treat the Stranger ….

 As I was leaving the menorah protest (in support of open borders) I had a brief look at the counter-protest that Rabbi Lippman referred to earlier:  No to Open Borders – We Can’t Vet them, Don’t Let Them In. Protect Americans FIRST.

AND THEN :  The Next Day : THERE WAS MORE! as Jewish Voices For Peace returned to Columbus Circle. Surely this was the “Cherry on the Chanukkah Cake


Jews Against “Islamophobia” and Racism – Rekindling our Commitment to “Justice”

           

 They ended with some folk-singing (of course).

BTW- “This Little Light of Mine” is a Christian Gospel song – not a secular soc/commie/prog song – (just sayin)

 After attending FOUR consecutive events held by these PROG-insurgents, I felt numb from listening to days of their fast and loose mantras. Their message never strayed: Anti-Trump/Anti-America/Pro-Islam/ pro-Refugees aka Open Borders claiming their goal was to send a message of PEACE, “that America is a nation of refugees and that it must continue to keep its doors open.

Reality Check post haste! ” … this abuse of language sows the seeds of intolerance and tyranny….”

NIF, T’ruah, BDS. JVP- THEY ARE THE SICKNESS nurtured by these “PROGRESSIVE Thought-Blockers

“Encumbered with a fossilized illiberal ideology, progressives must rely on … empty words and phrases that comfort and rouse the party faithful and camouflage the lack of coherent argument, consistent principles, and empirical evidence.…these empty words and phrases that lie at the heart of progressivism are the tools for increasing the progressives’ political power and influence, at the expense of everybody else’s freedom.” [Bruce Thorton]

I close with quotes from a timely article by Daniel Greenfield (referring to the San Bernadino terrorists )

“The problem is obvious and we can’t make it go away with gun control and wishful thinking.”

“It’s not the internet that is a threat, it’s immigration.”

 “They aren’t radicals. They aren’t extremists. They’re the enemy.

The Terrorists are everywhere. Vetting is not possible. This a dangerous time to hold back. Now is the Time to NO LONGER REMAIN Polite and SILENT.
