New York City Hall Presser: “Zionists do not represent NY Jews”

April 2, 2019 – 4:30 pm. NYC Hall Presser, Orthodox Jews say: “Zionists do not represent NY Jews. Anti-Zionism is NOT Anti-Semitism!

Perhaps they expected a lot of press due to the anti-Israel media ledes that dominate the headlines: Israel. Bad. Racists. However, once Councilman Yeger was removed from the Immigration Committee, the press was absent. Those present were moi, the JDL-NY and eventually two very late cameramen. Oh, wait! There was also ONE hijabbed Muslima blogger.

JDL- NY was there, too, with the message: No Such Thing as PALESTINE.

We will NOT be Silenced! Israel We Stand With You!

From JDL-NY :

“NYC Councilman Yeger responded to a tweet last week with the facts- “Palestine does not exist” & “Omar is an anti Semite”. Since that hundreds of anti Semites & anti-Israel organizations have attempted to discredit him. He was removed from the Immigration Committee yesterday.

None of the organizations or individuals condemning Councilman Yeger & demanding for his removal, have demanded any actions against Omar. A news conference is scheduled to take place today April 2nd
organized by Rabbi Hershel Klar to continue the condemnations
against NYC Councilman Yeger.

We are calling for all people of good conscious to join us to condemn the witch-hunt against a Jewish elected official. Omar remains on the Foreign Affairs Committee after numerous blatantly anti-Semitic tweets. She must be removed! Anti-Semitism is NOT okay. We can not be silent!”

Propaganda’s Use of Palestine

“During the last few centuries, the world, Christians included, has fallen into a bad habit. We have bought into some early Roman propaganda. We have used the name Palestine, which Roman Emperor Hadrian placed on the country of Israel in 135 A.D., for so long that it has become common usage. This would be as incorrect as calling the Russia of today the “Soviet Union” or referring to Berlin as “East Germany.” The thoughts below by our ministry’s senior theologian, Dr. Thomas S. McCall, completely explore the subject. If you know somebody who’s fallen into this habit, please share this article with them.”

Does Palestine Exist  – Front Page Mag

“Two weeks ago, a local New York City Councilman named Kalman Yeger noted on Twitter that “Palestine does not exist.” That statement, controversial as it is, is grounded in fact — in the sense that the United Nations Security Council, the only UN body capable of establishing international law through binding resolutions, has never conferred legal status to “Palestine,” and never accepted “Palestine” as a UN member state.”

All should be deeply offended  by these misguided flyers.

An anti-Zionist statement from the presser:

“We are against Zionism because we are Jews!” “The State of Israel is the biggest misfortune for the Jewish people” “Thousands of young Orthodox Jews are tortured in Israeli prisons because they are not willing to serve in the Israeli !” “We want to live in peace with all. We want to live in peace with our neighbors & respect EVERYONE no matter his color or creed!’ [https://twitter.com/TorahJews]

twitter announcement

And  two short videos: at first, it looked as though the presser was only in Hebrew ,which certainly limited getting their message out.

Later, in a 12 minute speech (in English) references to the “teachings of  Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and  founder of the Satmar Hasidic movement in 1961 (Book  Vayoel Moshe)

“Teitelbaum argues that Zionism is incompatible with Judaism. As Teitelbaum explains in the introduction, the book’s title is taken from the biblical verse of Exodus 2:21, and hints to Teitelbaum’s first name (Yoel), and to his grandfather, Moshe Teitelbaum. The verse, which states “And Moses agreed to stay…an alien in a foreign land”, hints to Teitelbaum’s conclusion that the Jewish people should remain in exile.[1]

They claim that THEY are Torah Jews.

PALESTINE letter 1947 ( I think it actually makes OUR case that Palestine refers to the JEWS.)

In video at 6:20 : “Letter from Chief Rabbi Jerusalem re Palestine Problemand the Jewish people . The Holy land and the Gates of Palestine were to be open to all those Jews who have no home, to lead Jewish lives in accordance with the commandments. But, he was OPPOSED to a Jewish State.”

At 8:38Re inflammatory remarks from any one in public office ” (remarks) … are totally unacceptable (so) Councilman is way over due to apologize to Councilwoman Omar – to orthodox Jews . Otherwise, you should resign from your post to heal the deep wounds. We ask for peace and tranquility worldwide …  a day of global peace when there won’t be any wars. Any bloodshed. Any animosity. The entire universe, all the nations should serve one G-d in harmony and peace, omein”

“Inflammatory remarks from any one in public office” … and yet the ONLY person he mentions is Councilman Yeger.

See quotes from Congresswoman Omar that are INFLAMMATORY as she addressed CAIR: “Someone did something on 911.”

In conclusion, Rabbi Shulem Lefkowitz speaking in a post presser release:

“The Rabbinical Alliance of the USA, a group representing Orthodox Jews from Brooklyn neighborhoods, held a press conference on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, on the steps of City Hall in Manhattan, regarding recent statements by Brooklyn councilman Kalman Yeger, who recently ignited a conflict with his comment that “Palestine does not exist”, thereby making an impression that Jews have Zionist interests.

“Over the decades, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a long chain of both, a violent one and a war of words,” said Rabbi Hershel Klar, an organizer of the event. “Now Councilman Yeger has unfortunately brought this war of words to our own Brooklyn neighborhood of Borough Park, giving the impression that religious Jews, his constituents, are interested in adopting the Zionist narrative and creating friction with our neighbors.

Jews and Zionists could not be more different. 
Jews are commanded to live peacefully in their countries during  exile, while Zionists wish to conquer land and oppress other people.
The Zionists, both leaders in the State of Israel and their supporters here in America, do not represent the Jewish people.

“Yeger deepened his offensive comments by leveling the accusation of anti-Semitism against a member of Congress, Ilhan Omer, who has been critical of the State of Israel and its supporters.

The Zionist approach of accusing their critics of being anti-Semitic is wrong.
Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism.
Judaism and Zionism are diametrically opposed.
Judaism is a religion to be subservient to the Almighty, while Zionism is a transformation into a political nationalist movement.

In fact, Judaism forbids a sovereign Jewish State since the destruction of the Jewish temple.Likewise, Judaism forbids Jews to wage wars, provoke conflict, or oppress any nation or peoples.

We Jews have always lived in the utmost peace and regard alongside our neighbors in all countries of our exile. We respect our government leaders and fulfill the commandment of Jeremiah 29:7, ‘Seek the welfare of the city to which I have exiled you and pray for it to G-d.’

The Zionist protagonists do not speak in our name.
It’s against Jewish law and tradition.

Kalman Yeger’s comments don’t represent the Brooklyn Jewish community. Numerous leading Rabbis have condemned him. This is not what we elected him for.

We need our politicians to keep our streets and parks clean and safe, and to advocate for services for our neighborhoods and schools, and not to drag our communities into the Zionist agenda.

We call upon Yeger to retract his comments.”

NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

AFSI Protest Mahmoud Abbas’ Address to U.N. Security Council

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 A
venue, 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.

Ambassador Haley addressed  the absent Abbas  (he left as soon as he had spoken) — Trump’s declaration in December that the United States considers Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital — ( she) told Abbas he can do nothing to reverse the U.S. position. Abbas should channel his anger into action toward a settlement and a better life for his people, Haley said.” [WaPo]

“Now in the 14th year of a four-year term, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has been something of a riddle. His modest, gentlemanly demeanor was a welcome contrast to that of his thuggish predecessor, Yasser Arafat […] Underneath it all, Abbas is a two-faced, feckless leader who harbors a classic, anti-Semitic view of Jews and world history.” Abbas proves to be nothing more than a two-faced anti-Semite [Michael Goodwin: NY Post]

[JPost] “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu summed it up nicely: Abbashas 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

… as those peace loving Neturei Karta taunted them from above with “Down, down with Israel” and “Is-ra-el go to hell” .

Part 1 video, opening remarks from Helen Freedman, Co-Executive Director of AFSI.

Part 2 video, Irwin ….  was introduced by Helen Freedman. He then spoke eloquently for ISRAEL.

Part 3 video – As Helen Freedman spoke the Neteuri Karta met the opposition!

[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 capitalopen 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]

Israel Day of Action (JDL-NY) vs anti-Israel Global Day of Action

Feb. 19, 2018 . Outside the NYC Israeli Consulate. (3:30 – 5 pm)


The usual anti-Israel protestors (the Soc/ Commie Left)  gathered along with the traitorous Neturei Karta

As part of the Free the Tamimis Global Day of Action, demonstrators gathered outside the Israeli consulate to demand freedom for Ahed Tamimi and all “Palestinian” political prisoners.

The New JDL-NY  PRO-Israel counter-protest came out loud and proud against the familiar anti-Israel protestors.  (who were also quite LOUD)

The piercing voice of Socialist Michela Martinazzi, chant leader for the LEFTists representing the”Committee to Stop FBI Repression-NY“. (Who knew one person could be so irritatingly LOUD.)

Even so, the JDL-NY did NOT back down. The anti-Israel LIES exposed as they vociferously projected their message too, “ENOUGH means ENOUGH“!

The Facebook event page from the “Free the Tamimis” Leftists included their GLOBAL mission statement for the day.

Found an obscenely detailed report on Ahed’s “innocence” from Middle East Eye  which requires only one response: FREEDOM? NO WAY! for  “TERRORIST” Ahed Tammi!


The JDL – NY demands Justice: PRISON for TERRORIST Tamimi!

But, it was not all about Ahed Tammimi. The Soc/Commie Brigades have big plans to indoctrinate, indoctrinate, indoctrinate.

A statement from the screeching chant leader,  Michela Martinazzi and one of her Socialist cohorts ,confidently revealing their plans:  “While they are in school, students and youth must become anti-imperialists, and take up the struggles of the multinational working class and oppressed nationalities and put those demands in the forefront, working to advance the interests of the people and land blows against the ruling class and their cronies.” said Ian Gallagher of FRSO, highlighting the importance of organizing in the student movement.[3]”

Besides the International Action Center (Commies) and Socialist Front at the Stop the FBI Event page, the protest was called for by the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network .

Also attended by NY4Palestine coalition and NYC Students for Justice in Palestine.

Welcomed by our  schools and media , this anti-Israel propaganda grows unabated, with no end in sight. But, only if we remain silent.


SILENCE is No Longer an Option: Am Yisrael CHAI!!
