Video and Photos: Jerusalem,Times Square,”Palestine” vs Patriots

Times Square – December 8, 2017 – 4:30 pm to 7 pm –  Seventh Avenue and 42nd st.

4:15 pm. The “Palestinians” were already gathering in their pen and YELLING. I soon saw why, the PRO Israel patriots, they TOO were already on-site. Not as many. But the flag of Israel was driving them to taunt their opposition with as much NOISE as they could muster.

 

 

 

 

 


For the next 90 minutes, I heard many vile chants. Like, “Khaybar Khaybar, ya yahud, Jaish Muhammad, sa yahud,” (“Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning”) a battle cry when attacking Jews or Israelis.

While a young hijabbed Muslima taunted the Israelis supporters with, “We’re still HERE!“.

“Al-Aqsa and the THIRD Intifada“….

And , ” ‘al-Quds” is ISLAMIC LAND, no one can change that reality

3 video PLAYLIST – Khaybar” chants and more  as “Palestinians” swarm Jews and ignore NYPD- Times Square

What is an intifada?  Most commonly, the Arabic word انتفاضة is associated with two long Palestinian uprisings against Israel. The first one occurred between 1987 and 1993, followed by a more violent second uprising in the early 2000s that lasted for about four years. The uprisings are known as the first intifada and the second intifada, and both proved destructive to the Palestinian economy.

The word itself carries a lot of other meanings, however. Apart from “uprising,” it can be translated as “shaking something off,” or “tremor.”  WaPo (Just like Debbie Almontaser’s Intifada NYC t-shirt)


On college campuses and in op-ed pages, the same crowd wraps itself snugly in the mantle of social justice, arguing that it wants nothing more than peace and equality for Palestine’s oppressed, but in the streets the picture’s sharper and more ghoulish: It’s all about violence against Jews.[Tablet Mag]

Boldly OUTRAGED against  the Jews, Israel AND Trump:  “Call it the Sarsourization of New York (and national Dem) politics. Under Giuliani there were clear red lines for rallies and protests. Calling for terror and death was a red line. But Bill de Blasio, New York’s current top dog, had crawled deep into bed with Linda Sarsour and Islamists. And that’s where you get this from. “[D. Greenfield]

Part 1 video. After quite few years of diminished “Fakestinian” rallies, today was back to the old formula: BUS ’em in from Jersey. Pack the pens. And that is what happened.

Part 2 video. They kept coming. Families – young and old. hijabs and kufiyas.  A visual blight.

Part 3 video.  They made  A LOT of NOISE.

Part 4 video. At first the NYPD didn’t have many officers on site, but that soon changed. Once this crowd of Muslim “yoots” (and friends) made it clear they were NOT going to obey the rules of public assembly. Perhaps this is what we get from 24/7 media coverage of the BLM and Antifa anarchists.

Part 5 video. The NYPD was GREAT. Very impressive while dealing with a complicated bunch of Muslim “Palestinians”. OUR laws were not going to be obeyed. No way. No how.

Part 6 video.  As the “Palestinians” surrounded and harassed the pro- Israel contingent – on a public sidewalk. It was a very heated attempt at intimidation but, THEY did NOT succeed. We STAYED. Even when the police suggested we leave as the Fakestinians marched to the Israeli Consulate. We thanked them, but NO. We were fine. We stayed. Am Yisrael Chai!!

And then, 3 days later, December 11, 2017.  A Muslim JIHADI strikes again, taunting Trump before he struck, “Trump you failed to protect your nation..” NYPost

We have been warned, and yet, the ignorance rolls on….

 … AOL … “make these folks feel comfortable”…

“Despite Ullah’s alleged words and Trump’s efforts to restrict immigration, statistics suggest that the threat posed by terrorism is exceedingly low.

For example, a person living in the US is about 123 times as likely to die in a gun assault than by a foreign-born terrorist, and more than 400 times as likely to die in a vehicle incident.

“We’re doing an awful lot of effort for a very low-risk threat,” Oxley said. “Maybe we need to work harder to make these folks feel comfortable and assimilate into our society … If we let these people in, maybe we should work harder to make them a part of our culture.” FOOLS

JDL- NY counters JVP Boycott of Israel Birthright Gala

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!

Time to get LOUD! Time to STAND WITH ISRAEL!” The New Jewish Defence League NY

Wilful ignorance: arrogant AND obscene.

Anti-Zionists Protest Israel Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall – again

October 25th, 2017, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) gave a concert & gala at Carnegie Hall.  This was fantastic, yes?

Nope. These anti-Israel / anti-Zionist groups did not agree.


They organized ANOTHER anti-Israel protest outside Carnegie Hall aimed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel. AGAIN.

Each year, anti-Zionists return to protest the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra [IPO]. (For previous IPO Carnegie Hall protests, follow links to 2011 and 2012.)

Fortunately, their lies and hateful anti-Semitism did NOT go unchallenged.

The Jewish Defence League and other Zionists were there to “Stand Up For Israel”, to “Stop the lies” and “Stop the hate!”


AM YISRAEL CHAI!

Some anti-Israel protest chants compliments of Adalah NY and the other anti-Zionists.

Protest musical accompaniment- OUTSIDE Carnegie – was provided by the eponymous, Rude Mechanical Orchestra. Facebook.

Adalah, however, remains OFFENDED the IPO representing the State of Israel across the world. “Let the IPO know that apartheid is out of tune.”


“It (the IPO)”, says Adalah, “serves as a cultural ambassador for the State of Israel, playing a public role in the official Israeli propaganda campaign. Brand Israel uses art and music to distract attention from Israel’s human rights ‘abuses’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the ‘Palestinian’ people.”

Adalah claims that, “the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is not an apolitical cultural institution.”

“We (Adalah and other anti-Zionists) are responding to the call from ‘Palestinian’ civil society to boycott cultural institutions that are complicit in Israel’s ‘systematic repression’ of the Palestinian people living under Israeli ‘military occupation’ in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as unequal citizens in Israel or as refugees denied their right of return to their homeland.”

BTW- Adalah (the protest host for the evening) was connected in 2007 to the infamous Intifada NYC T-shirt .


Former Brooklyn Principal, Debbie Almontaser, defended the t-shirts, telling the NY Post that “intifada” meant “shaking off”, that the shirts represented women “shaking off” oppression. …. Peace be upon you ….

And now, the REAL STORY behind the Israel Philharmonic and its ORIGINS:

“Since its inception in 1936, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra has been dedicated to presenting exceptional music to audiences in Israel and throughout the world. From its inaugural concert, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, world-renowned soloists and conductors have performed with the IPO.

On December 26, 1936, the Palestine Symphony played its first concert in Tel Aviv under the baton of Arturo Toscanini. A staunch anti-Fascist, the legendary conductor enthusiastically accepted Huberman’s request to join the Symphony as a demonstration against Nazism, declaring, “I am doing this for humanity.”

“The public reception to this inaugural performance was overwhelming, with crowds standing outside near the windows and even climbing on rooftops in an attempt to hear the Symphony. The ovation at the end of the night lasted over 30 minutes.”

 “The IPO is Israel’s foremost cultural ambassador and travels throughout the world, particularly to countries where there is little or no Israeli representation. In some cases, performances of the IPO are the only example of Israel’s existence.”

“The goodwill created by these tours, which included historic visits to Japan, Argentina, Poland, Hungary, Russia, China and India, is of enormous value to the State of Israel.”

Unfortunately, the anti-Israel protests never stop; good-will be damned.

NEXT WEEK, on Thursday, November 2,  I found two more anti-Israel events. FYI: November 2nd, 2017 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.

“At 5:30 pm, outside Israeli Embassy at 42nd St and 2nd Ave, a rally to “protest 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, to protest 100 years of colonization”, hosted by NYC Students for Justice in Palestine . The SJP claims that the Balfour Declaration was the first step toward the objective of political Zionism. [Face Book]

They will gather to protest the continued occupation of “Palestine” by Israeli Zionist forces.”

The LIES Never Stop.

“The United Nations Palestinian Rights Committee cordially invites you to a lecture on the Balfour Declaration and the impact it has had on the Palestinian people. The lecture will be delivered by Professor Rashid Khalidi, the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University and director of the Middle East Institute of Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs in the ECOSOC Chamber of the United Nations Secretariat in New York. It will bring together a broad range of participants, including members of the diplomatic community in New York, UN staff members, representatives of civil society organizations and the general public.”[Face Book]

HUGE “STAND WITH ISRAEL” Rally – UN Plaza (7-28-14) vids & pics

July 28, 2014 UN Plaza. NEW YORK STANDS WITH  ISRAEL

download

The crowds were HUGE. Coming together to STAND With ISRAEL. Walking to the UN Plaza from all-sides. Converging on two small tables where bags had to be checked . BTW- this is NOT required when going to lefty/muzzard protests … ONLY to Israeli protests. (That tells us a lot about who is threatening whom.)

It was impossible to see or hear anything. The UN Plaza was JAMMED with people who had come to show SUPPORT for Israel.

DSC_4443 copy

I had to hang around the the edges of the rally.

DSC_4453 copy

Which is OK when you realize so many people gathered in the name of PEACE… and they are PEACEFUL.

DSC_4467 copy

No angry, fist pumping chants demanding anyone’s death (as we see at the anti-Israel events)

DSC_4438 copy

As I was leaving, I came upon a few passersby who had decided to chastise the Neteuri Karta. (Some days you just can’t ignore them)

During this ‘talk-back’ … aimed at the Neteuri Karta…. I loved it when the girl with the Israel Flag headband started to SING, am Yisrael CHAI!  Singing is usually the order-of-the day (even when angry) SING!

IMG_1710 copy

I understand their frustration. Too many passing-by think the Neteuri Karta represent “True Judaism”.

IMG_1713 copy

The Leftists and Muslims find the confusion they create very useful.  They love it when  the media writes there are even ‘Jews’ who say Israel is illegal”

That makes our Show of Support more important with every day.

This Sunday. In Union Square. Another opportunity to join together in SUPPORT of Israel AND Minorities Persecuted Under Islamic Rule. July 17, 2014.

BE THERE if you can!!
