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]
Jan 15, 2019. Washington Sq. Protestors lead by Samidoun gathered in Washington Sq ranting about “Palestinian” prisoner Ahmad Sa’adat. However, it was “Palestine” that put this guy, Sa’adat, in prison followed by Israeli incarceration. But, ONLY Israel is the bad guy. Sa’adat is a VICTIM of the Israeli OCCUPIERS, not “Palestine”
These protestors are more about spewing their anti-Jewish, anti-Israel agit-prop [If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes PALESTINE] and less about these prisoners who deserve incarceration.
The Samidoun mantra: “We urge you to join us for an International Week of Action between January 15 and 22, 2019 to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners!” [samidoun] ….. “US” refers to their comrades:“Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) is a national organization of revolutionaries fighting for socialism in the United States. Our home is in the working class.”[FRSO]
UPDATE: Thank you President Trump for your SOTU speech. Thank you for stating that the United States will NEVER be a Socialist country. But, revolutionaries like the FRSO will never stop subverting America. As unimportant as a protest like this may seem, the American Socialists know every protest is an opportunity to gain new recruits.
Short video of the protest next:
The JDL-NY (Jewish Defense League) was there supporting Israel while the soc/commie/leftists falsely claimed Israel to be an occupier. [The Judea, Samaria,West Bank controversy:wiki]
[Jerusalem Post] “There was never a Palestinian state nor political entity that belonged to the Palestinians. Historically, Judea and Samaria, commonly known as the West Bank, belongs to the Jewish people.
According to the evolution of international agreements from 1917 until 1947, the land of Israel was divided into three states: Jordan, which is east of the Jordan River, and a Jewish and Arab state to share the land west of the Jordan River.
This painful compromise shrunk the size of Israel by over 75% but the Arabs refused launching a war of aggression against the re-established state of Israel in 1948. Jordanoccupied the area of Judea and Samaria and illegally annexed it.“
“It should be emphasized that the Palestinians never claimed to establish a Palestinian state following the Jordanian annexation (…) they wanted to establish an Arab state instead of the state of Israel, the land they previously refused and consequently lost in the 1948 war.” [Jerusalem Post]
In Conclusion: The Samidoun “Palestinian” Prisoner Solidarity Network claims “the ‘Palestinian’ Authority kidnapped Sa’adat under false pretenses and imprisoned him for four years … before its prison was attacked by the Israeli “occupation” … leading to the repeated “imprisonment” of “Palestinians” for their political involvement by the PA. The JDL-NY does not suffer these lies quietly.
Love those double-sided signs
“After a violent attack on the PA’s Jericho prison in 2006 (…) Sa’adat was sentenced to 30 years in prison; convicted in an Israeli military court of leading a prohibited organization and “incitement.”
“Sa’adat is a leader in the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and the Palestinian national liberation movement (…) He stands alongside nearly 6,000 fellow Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails (…) he is a symbol of Palestinian, Arab and internationalist resistance to capitalism, racism, apartheid and colonization.”
“As long as it continues to exist, Israel will be a prison for the Palestinian people. But the day of liberation is coming and we can help bring it closer. (Soc/Commie instigator, Joe Catron)
“Join us in a collective call for the freedom of Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian Prisoners. Join us to build the global grassroots campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions from Israel and complicit corporations. Join us to fight for an end to aid and support for the Israeli occupation that has been confiscating land and lives for over 70 years.”
The Lies. The never ending Jew-hating lies. Still.
What was this? Jewish Jihadists in Manhattan appropriated Christmas carols to spread their anti-Israel propaganda.Again.

” Elbit Systems – the parent company of Everysight – is Israel’s largest weapons manufacturer. They make weaponized drones, sniper ammunition, surveillance equipment for the separation wall and the U.S.-Mexico border, and other tools of killing and repression.” [Face Book]
“Elbit has taken their death and destruction tools mainstream by selling Everysight Raptor cycling glasses … the glasses use the same technology Elbit provides for fighter jets enabling the killing of countless numbers of civilians in Gaza.”
The COUNTER PROTEST was led by JDL-NY The JDL was there to counter the LIES . The Propaganda. Informing the passersby that this “The location was chosen because b8ta sells Everysight Raptor cycling glasses … while the manufacturing company also makes products that the IDF uses.” [how dare they!]
“If the BDS Jewish Jihadists were really concerned about Arabs, they should be speaking out about the murder, beatings, harassment and flight of Christian Arabs from Bethlehem, the birthplace of the Christian messiah. Their faux “tikkun olam” is evident by their protests and anti-Israel rhetoric.[Face Book]
Four short videos: Part 1
Seems the hard-coreLeft would rather live in the stone age (click picture to enlarge)
At 4:30 pm, Monday, August 14th. The anti-Israel Left held a rally to CELEBRATE murderess Rasmea Odeh (an ICON of Resistance) in Union Square Park.
“We urge all to join us on 14 August in NYC to show our love and support for Rasmea Odeh before her sentencing in federal court three days later in Detroit. This will be her last court appearance and Rasmea is planning to make a statement.
The plea agreement that has already been reached states that Rasmea will not get additional jail time – but she will have to leave the U.S. This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader.
This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader. This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader. Gather on the steps in the southern plaza.” [Face Book]
They were endorsed by an obscenely LONG list of puppet and ghost organizations:
BUT, the New-JDL had a counter-demonstration to “Honor the Victims NOT the Killer, Rasmea Odeh”.
They were there to counter the Samidoun LIES with FACTS: Rasmea Odeh is a terrorist convicted of the murder of two young Jews, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner on Feb. 21st, 1969.
They were killed in an explosion in an Israeli market. Odeh murdered them, yet she was being honored at a rally in Union Square Park.
“The public must be made aware that she is a convicted murderer and not a victim. The public must be made aware that Edward and Leon are the victims. Please join us and help fight the lies of radical Islamics and their supporters.” [Face Book]
The JDL gathered “at the steps in the southern plaza” before the Samidoun arrived, creating a dilemma of sorts for the anti-Zionists. Now they couldn’t display their signs on the steps as planned.
But, did they have a Plan B? Perhaps not, as the Samidoun stood around laughing, smirking and pointing at the JDL while they pondered what to do next.
A decision was finally made to walk in a circle (they love going round and round) and that they did while chanting “Racists go Home”.
VIDEO – 2
Eventually, some of the younger terrorist-lovers did the predictable, standing in front of the JDL signs.Then some of the younger JDL’s became more vocal as they two sides edged closer and closer finally coming nose to nose just as the NYPD arrived.
The JDL counter-protest was VERY successful proving it does NOT take an army to weaken the resolve of these radicals – even though that may be brief – it was FUN to watch their confusion. They obviously expected only SUPPORT for their murderous darling, Rasmea Odeh.
Interestingly, the NYPD officers seemed almost bemused as they placed barricade after barricade between the two groups, building a Wall to keep the PEACE.
Maybe there’s something to be said for walls, PEACE and safety from the violent animus of WAR-mongers like Samidoun and Hamas.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas share certain goals and values. To each, it is not a question of whether a peaceful settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is possible. It never will be acceptable. What is acceptable is violence against civilians. [investigative project]
SO, Goodbye and Good Riddance to Rasmieh Odeh
The creation of a state of terror, instability and panic in the souls of the Zionists” is a goal spelled out in the Islamic Jihad’s internal bylaws […] Hamas unveiled an updated charter this year […] it remains committed to never recognizing Israel’s right to exist and demands “the full and complete liberation of Palestine : “from the river to the sea”.
In other words, no peace while Israel exists.
Rasmieh Odeh bombed that grocery store before either group was created [Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad] so America has lost a pioneer in Palestinian terrorism. Take note of who grieves for that loss more than the loss of life she caused. [investigative project]
David Jamesnovitch August 14 · “Racist scum from JDL just showed up to the anti Trump event waving a “blue lives matter” and were shouted down by the crowd and left abruptly”
We Say: Goodbye and Good Riddance to RASMEA ODEH!

== UPDATE on Reparations PAYBACK 2017==
Norway Demands Palestinians Repay Funds and U.S. Congress Cheers. No moneys can be used to HONOR KILLERS like Terrorist and Murderess, Dalal Mughrabi
A total of 38 Israelis, including 13 children, were killed and 72 were wounded by Dalal Mughrabi [eight other militants died as well as Mughrabi]
Leaked photos of Dalal Mughrabi’s remains in a Palestinan propaganda leaflet which purports to show former PM Ehud Barak taking a suicide belt off of Mughrabi.
Members of the US Congress are hailing Norway’s recent actions and calling for Washington to take similar steps.
Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recently introduced an amendment to an appropriations bill that would have prohibited US funds from being used by the PA to publicly honor terrorists. The amendment was disqualified by the House Rules Committee on a technicality, but Sarah Stern — the president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) — said that she and her colleagues will be working with members of Congress to reintroduce a similar amendment “at the earliest opportunity.” [Pamela Geller, Jewish Breaking News]
NEXT: THE LIES CONTINUE on SEPT 19 from 6 PM – 8 PM at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza – outside the U.N. “From the U.S. to Palestine” (#BuildMovementsNotWalls). Hosted by American Muslims for Palestine – NJ Chapter and Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City.
Genocidal Chants and Lies commemorating the“nakba” fraud were blasted outside NY City Hall on Sunday, May 15, 2016.
The “nakba” is the failed invasion of Israel by foreign Muslim armies, by Egyptian, Iraqi, Syrian and Jordanian forces, that began on May 15, 1948 and is now an annual “day of mourning” over the miserable defeat of their invading armies at the hands of the indigenous Jewish population.
The LIES: An exhibit in March 2012, at the Metropolitan Museum, perpetuated the HOAX of a peaceful Islamic Cultural expansion. FACT: Islamic culture is genocidal appropriation comprised of “historical” LIES and Fraud.
The Muslim INVADERS claim that King David was a Muslim, that Jesus was a “palestinian” and that theStar of David, which long predated Islam, is an Islamic symbol.
150 years ago, Mark Twain visited Muslim-occupied Israel and wrote of “unpeopled deserts” and “mounds of barrenness,” of “forlorn” and “untenanted” cities.
Palestine is “desolate,” he concluded. “One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.”
The same is true of the “palestinian” Museum which opened in 2016 with much fanfare and one slight problem: while admission is free, there’s nothing inside for any of the visitors to see except the bare walls.
‘palestine’ has no past … no future. When the Muslim Invaders take over countries. cities. villages. churches. cathedrals. synagogues. temples. All must accept Islam, SUBMIT or Die.
They ERASE all evidence of any history before Islam. Perpetuating the LIE that ISLAM is not the problem. The JEWS are. Israel IS.
The INDIGENOUS peoples of the Holy Land are THE JEWS. Which is WHY a museum a few miles outside the capital of the “palestinian” Authority… find(s) (no)thing “palestinian” to exhibit in what it claims is historic (“palestinian”) land…. The bare walls testify that… there is no palestinian culture. There is no palestinian history.
VIDEO 1 – THE TRUTH denied as anti-Israel Genocidal Chants and Lies assault all who pass-by
The chants: Hudna, Hudna don’t you cry, “Fakestine” will never die” – We Want 48, We don’t want a Two State – We don’t wanta a Two- State, We want 48! – “When People are Occupied, Resistance is Justified “(followed by the ubiquitous chants) “The People United will Never be Defeated” and “Free Free “Fakestine”, “Long Live “Fakestine”.
A male speaker:“When we say we want to return, it’s not just a slogan. We don’t play any games. We are genuine about our cause and about our beliefs. Make no mistake, when we said we want “Fakestine’ to be free, we MEAN just that : “From the River to the Sea! “Fakestine” will be Free.” Let the whole world hear you. let the politicians , the Zionists walking around taking picture (I think he means ME)… the Mossad. We have no doubt that ONE DAY, no matter how long it takes, we will return to our beloved “ancestral-homeland” “Fakestine” . LONG LIVE “FAKESTINE”. It’s not over til we get our LAND back. Never Forget. Never FORGIVE. We WILL Return! Free Free “Fakestine”
VIDEO 2 – “nakba” lies outside NY City Hall joined by Communist radicals warn that “violence is necessary”. Laura Whitehorn & Lamis Deek–Whitehorn spent 14 years in Federal Prison. Deek is an attorney who never met a radical she didn’t want to represent. Both in New York’s CITY HALL Park demanding the creation of ANOTHER Islamic State of Apartheid – in the Middle East- those “BASTIONS of equality!”
[00:00 to 00:48] Excerpt from Communist Radical [aka “political” prisoner] LAURA WHITEHORN was charged with “conspiracy to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government by violent and illegal means”. She received a sentence of twenty years – released after 14. In the 60s, Whitehorn was active in the “civil rights” movement, supported the Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Movement and the New Afrikan Independence Movement, Puerto Rican Independence and the liberation of women, gays and lesbians. Whitehorn also lists fighting the KKK and organized white supremacy … YET she was in CITY HALL park demanding the creation of ANOTHER Islamic State of apartheid – in the Middle East- those “BASTIONS of Equality!” WHITEHORN insists that “the delegation Jews are anti-Zionist Jews .This has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. It is an national Liberation Movement.”
[00:49 to 3:56] Second female speaker most likely, Jihadi Attorney at Law- LAMIS DEEK.“Fakestinians” do not accord legitimacy to Israel. Israel is called the 48. BRING that message HERE. Stop saying Israel! Israel is “48”. Israel’s BANNED from the Land of “Fakestinians”. we must FREE “Fakestine” A “Two-State Solution” is ABSOLUTELY NO Solution. We fought apartheid. We fought racism. we fought genocide in “Fakestine” and it is our responsibility here in the U.S. to make sure that this does not continue to happen. The U.S. as we all know funds Israel to the tune of 4-5 BILLION dollars. That means in the U.S. our hands are filled with blood. We need to take a stand against it. We need to be in the streets. And we need to LINK the Black Liberation Movement AND the Liberation Movement of OPPRESSED people IN the United States – Native Americans, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans…. fight to ‘free Fakestine” . We stand here in solidarity. Every year. The crowd cheered as Lamis gave encouragement and support for violence as a necessary act of resistance (when necessary)
Re Political Prisoners: Whitehorn and Deek waxed on and on about violent felons [also “political” prisoners”] claiming they were imprisoned wrongfully. Bombs – they’re just another form of litter…perhaps… Lamis seems to think so…. As she mentions that Whitehorn spent 14 years in prison (in part) because she BOMBED the headquarters of the Israeli Aircraft Industry right here in NYC. (the crowd CHEERS). “Part of what we need to understand, people who’s Nations have been under ‘attack” have THE RIGHT- by any means necessary to DEFEND their homeland “(the crowd goes wild with CHEERS again) “In the United States- Black Political Prisoners. White Political Prisoners. Chicanos. Native Americans. We say FREEDOM to “Fakestine”. We won’t stop until Freedom until “Fakestine” is Free.“
Outside NY City Hall Park- Patriot Jim defended Israel by exposing the LIES about “Fakestine”.
At one point he was joined by a British fellow passing by who also challenged the “Fakestinan” LIES. This man, as well as Patriot Jim, were a huge source of irritation for the Commies and Muslims .
VIDEO 3 – “What a SUCCESS story you guys are. yeah yeah Liberal States have been great for Gays…good for gays, good for women…what a joke…you’re all so confused…44 Arab States, not enough: Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq- another one and then another one- you’re a BASTION of equality; a bastion of democracy.”(Responding to a Muslim female) “Every Arab country’s apartheid. How about women’s rights, gay rights…you’re an f-ing moron. How about women’s rights?”
(The Muslima responds) “They’re Great” (followed by a non sequitur) “A 100,000 ‘palestinians’ died.” (The Brit responds as cops make him leave ), “You’re not a Liberal, you’re a MORON”. Move along-mustn’t upset the Muslim protestors chanting over and over for “One solution- Intifada- Revolution”. Translated: “Death to the Jews. ERASE “the 48, aka Israel” from the history books.
The TRUTH: “There is no such thing as a “palestinian” people, no such thing as a “palestinian” history and no “palestinian” language exists. There has never been any independent, sovereign “palestinian” state in all of recorded history.”
VIDEO 4 – A couple of“Fakestinians’ claim they are the NICE guys.
City Hall Park- NYC- Muslims. Communists. Black Panther Racists join the media (our schools) our educated fools to preach the “Fakestinian” narrative: “Muslims Good. Zionists (Jews) BAD.”
The “Fakestinian” Hoax. The Fraud is dedicated to the destruction of “the 48” (Israel) and teh LIE that the Zionists have NO right to live on “MUSLIM” land (ISRAEL)

IN CONCLUSION. The agit-prop on the Fakestinian Facebook page :
“On the 68th anniversary of the “occupation” of palestine … as the palestinian people enter the 68th year of “dispossession” and “exile”, we call on all… supporters of “justice” and “liberation” to come together to… commemorate the “nakba”, stand against the “continuing” nakba… to call for the “right of return” for palestinian “refugees” and freedom for palestine.
… The war of 1948 … over 800,000 palestinians driven from their homes… the State of Israel created on that land …the”struggle” for their “right to return”…. continues today.”
The speakers included representatives of New York City Students for Justice in Palestine, Al-Awda NY, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, American Muslims for Palestine, International Action Center, Existence is Resistance, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return, Muslim American Society, BAYAN USA and other groups struggling for “Justice” in “Fakestine” and internationally.
“We don’t want two states – we want 48!” Lamis Deek (Jihadi attorney)
Nerdeen Kiswani of New York City Students for Justice in palestine wrote that “the rally was full of palestinian youth, which gave me an intense feeling of hope and optimism, that the next generation does not forget their history, their roots, and the right of return. They cheered loudly whenever someone proclaimed that refugees languishing in camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, don’t want to just go to the West Bank and Gaza, they’re entitled to go back to the homes they were expelled from. Back to Yaffa, back to Haifa, back to Akka. Although so many here today were people born and raised in Brooklyn, because their grandparents were displaced from palestine, they know where their roots lie and that the right of return is not just symbolic but a key aspect of the palestinian struggle.”
The Truth does not change. Truth is truth. If something was true 50 years ago, 40 years ago, 30 years ago, it is still true today. And the truth is there was very little confusion on this issue of “palestine”…
FACT:“There is no such thing as a palestinian people.” (the late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir)
June 5, 2016 – NYC CELEBRATES the TRUTH and The State of Israel! Am Yisrael Chai!
