Lev HaOlam Dutch activist Carolina said: “We came down here to stand at Israel’s right and against the self-righteousness of the seventy countries who follow the farewell gift from Obama and John Kerry. The atmosphere here is wonderful, a lot of people, a thrilling sight! Am Israel Hai!”

Lev HaOlam founder Attorney Nati Rum said, “It’s heart-warming to see more and more people getting up and acting against these anti-Semitic decisions and the voices wishing to harm Israel.”

#ShameOnTheUN Thursday Rally to Send Message on Coming Resolutions

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

A #ShameOnTheUN rally taking place tomorrow, Thursday, January 12, at 12:30 PM, in front of the French mission to the UN, 885 Second Avenue, NY, NY, will “send a strong message prior to the Mid-East Summit in Paris being held January 15,” according to rally organizers.

The rally will take place amidst rumors that the Paris conference will result in recognition of a Palestinian state, which will be followed by a UN Security Council resolution confirming the statehood, this time binding, on Tuesday, January 17, with the US either voting in favor or abstaining. Such a resolution could be the foundation for future sanctions against Israel should it refuse to comply by removing its settlements from the newly invented state alongside its border.

“We will NOT allow the UN and her gang of Israel haters to target Israel unjustly,” state the rally organizers (all caps in the original text). “NO MORE Anti-Israel documents or resolutions! The UN’s attempt to revise and erase Jewish history is deplorable. We call on the UN to focus on REAL issues such as Syrian Genocide and Global Islamic Terror instead of vilifying Israel unjustly.”

The following organizations have declared their support for the rally, according to the Israel Forever foundation’s Facebook page:

Israel Forever foundation, AISH Center, AMCHA, Americans Against Terrorism, Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI), Bnai Zion, Congregation Or Chayim, Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET), Fuel For Truth, Hadassah, The Zionist Women’s Organization of America, Hasbara Fellowships, Indian American Intellectuals Forum NY, Iron Dome Alliance, Israel Forever Foundation, Jewish Action Alliance, Jewish National Fund, Jewish Voice, London Center for Policy Research, Manhattan Jewish Experience, National Conference on Jewish Affairs, National Council of Young Israel, One Israel Fund, Phyllis Chesler Organization, Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), Republican Friends of Israel, Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, Shomrei Haam, StandWithUs, Strength to Strength, The World Values Network, and Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), RAJE, JCCWatch, Z Street, Israel Independence Fund, Union for Traditional Judaism, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Protest: Jewish Blood Isn’t Cheap!

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Israelis vowed to gather for a protest Sunday evening at 6 pm at the site of a savage truck ramming terror attack that took the lives of four young Israeli soldiers earlier in the day, and left 15 others wounded.

A poster in large red letters, proclaiming “Jewish blood isn’t cheap!” was circulated on social media within hours after the attack.

In big letters at the bottom, the poster declared, “Revenge to the enemy!”

Clicking on the poster led to a photo of the attack site that showed the truck used by the terrorist, over which big red letters said in Hebrew, “The people of Israel demand REVENGE!”

Neo-Nazi ‘March on Jews’ Planned for Jan. 15 in Whitefish, Montana

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

The townspeople of Whitefish, Montana are gearing up to deal with the impact of an upcoming ‘March on the Jews’ in their community by neo-Nazis who also vow to bring “high-powered rifles” to the event.

The Daily Stormer neo-Nazi website founder, Andrew Anglin, is behind the march which allegedly is set for Sunday, January 15.

Anglin made the announcement through public media, a local ABC FOX television station and the Missoula Independent newspaper. But there has been no application yet filed for a permit to march in the town, according to The Forward, which interviewed researcher Marilyn Mayo from the New York-based Anti-Defamation League on the matter.

“We haven’t seen any evidence that the march will happen at this point,” Mayo told the news outlet.

Anglin, on the other hand, has been promoting the event — or at least, threatening to hold it — for at least a month.

“We are planning an armed protest in Whitefish,” he wrote on his website last month. “We can easily march through the center of the town carrying high powered rifles.”

He said he plans the march against “Jews, Jewish businesses and everyone who supports either.”

Whitefish Police were not available to comment. But in the state of Montana, a permit is not required to buy a weapon, nor to carry one openly. A permit is needed to carry a concealed weapon only in certain circumstances, according to the National Rifle Association.

Demonstrators in NYC to Demand: ‘Defund The UN’

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

A flyer is making its way around the internet, calling on demonstrators to show up at 12 noon on Wednesday, Dec. 28 at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, 799 UN Plaza, First Avenue between 44th and 45th Streets in New York City to call on the U.S. government to defund the United Nations in response to last week’s vote against Israel at the UN Security Council.

“As we begin the joyous festivities of Chanukah, we find ourselves beset with angst over the colossal betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration at Friday’s United Nations Security Council,” writes organizer David Hooreen in the Jewish Voice.

Demonstrators are urged to gather to “send a clarion call to the United States government to defund the morally bankrupt and highly tendentious United Nations.”

“Because we are cognizant of the fact that this resolution will become fodder in the obsessive crusade by the international community to create a terror-driven Palestinian state in Israel’s backyard, thereby jeopardizing its security, we have taken initiatives of our own to counter these nefarious agendas and we ask that you play an important role in them,” the notice continues.

“Make your voice heard and stand with those who support the timeless values of decency, democracy and equality as we show a united front for Israel and America.”

Jews Rally, Counter-Rally outside Hoenlein’s Group’s Hanukkah Party at Trump’s DC Hotel [video]

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

More than 150 Jewish young adults yelled anti-President-Elect Trump slogans and sang traditional Hanukkah songs with anti-Trump twists marching from Freedom Plaza to the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC Wednesday night, during a pre-Hanukkah party that was being held inside by the Conference of Presidents of American Jewish Organizations, the Washington Post reported.

Another, albeit smaller group of about 15 Jews called Jews Choose Trump held a counter-protest nearby. Lee Green, a Jewish member of the electoral college from North Carolina, traveled from his home state to voice her objection to the idea that US Jews demonstrate against Trump.

The group opposing Trump and Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents, was made up of the usual leftwing, Reform-affiliated suspects, including Rabbi Rick Jacobs, head of the URJ, who called Hoenlein’s decision to celebrate Hanukkah at a Trump owned joint “tone-deaf at best, naked sycophancy at worst.” The protest was organized by If Not Now, a leftwing, anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian Jewish group.

Hoenlein told the Post a week ago that the Trump hotel was picked for the party “purely on a pragmatic basis,” and that “the reasoning behind it was nothing to do with the Trump name.” He explained that the Azerbaijani Embassy, which co-hosted the party with the Conference of Presidents, planned it close to a month ago, and couldn’t find a venue that was able to accommodate a kosher gathering.

The counter-protesters sang patriotic Israeli and American songs, and at one point, according to the Post, pro-Trump protester David Goldberg yelled at Sharon Kleinbaum, the clergywoman of New York City’s LGBT Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, “What is it that you think we celebrate on the festival of Hanukkah?” adding, “You would have been on the side of Antiochus rather than Judah the Maccabee.”

Back in 2014, Kleinbaum was chastised by many in her own congregation for reading the names of Arab children who were killed in the Gaza war, alongside the names of Israeli soldiers who gave their lives in the same war, creating the impression that the latter bore responsibility for the former. She is also infamous for her statement: “I do believe that Israel violates the human rights of Palestinians every single day. Both things are true.”

Trump Rushed Offstage by Secret Service at Rally [video]

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Donald Trump was rushed off the stage by two of his Secret Service agents when a commotion in the front of the crowd made his Secret Service agents suspect someone had a gun.

Other secret service agents then entered the crowd and led someone out of the rally that was being held in Reno Nevada on November 5, 2016.

Afterwards, Trump returned to the stage and continued his speech.

Fox News reports that someone in the audience yelled “Gun” a few times, after seeing someone reach around his back towards his waistband, and that caused the commotion.

A person holding an anti-Trump sign was briefly detained.

No weapon was found in the audience.

Trump followers are claiming the person who was detained is on the Wikileaks list of DNC operatives.
