It had to happen. The American college student who seemed destined for first place in the least tasteful of all misguided acts of protest has been bested by Jews. And these Jews are so desperate for attention that they not only pervert the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge into an act of anti-Israel protest, but succeed in committing acts of historic blasphemy as well.
The group of protesters go by the name of “Jews Against Genocide.” Of course, the only genocide they protest is the fake genocide of Palestinian Arabs in Gaza, not the any number of actual genocides currently taking place in the world, even in the nearby Middle East nation of Syria.
These misguided JAGs created a video of themselves proclaiming their moral abhorrence of (and superiority towards) the Israel Defense Force’s defensive action against the thousands of rockets lobbed into residential neighborhoods and the creation of a labyrinth of terror tunnels designed to kidnap, hold hostage and murder innocent Israelis. But that isn’t how their story goes.
According to JAG, Israelis intentionally murdered Gazan civilians in yet the latest act in a series of acts of genocide. Whether one can keep committing acts of genocide against the same people was an esoteric not discussed by these JAG members.
The video captures various JAG members reading a list of indictment against Israel, shot at various locations in Israel including in front of Yad Vashem, the Israeli Memorial to and Museum of the Holocaust, the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, the Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem, the Israeli military radio station in Tel Aviv and in front of the Knesset.
Some of the native Israelis reading from the script stumble over the words, which were obviously written by English native-speakers. And the words are so extreme, recalling the “Nakba” (the Arabic word for catastrophe, which refers to Israel’s creation), and Israel’s repeated genocides against Gazans. They JAG members. In fact, the entire Operation Protective Edge is summarized by the first speaker as “the 2137 women, men and children murdered by Israeli war criminals.”
As the excellent website Legal Insurrection points out, JAG enthusiastically supports the Boycott of, Divestment from and Sanctions against Israel (BDS) movement.
The press release issued by Jews Against Genocide justifies its actions and threatens to undertake blood bucket challenges at Israeli Embassies around the world because “until the price that Israel pays for its crimes is higher than the profit it is making from them, Israel’s genocide of Palestinians will continue.”
