Anti-Israel hate-mongers are commanding their followers to “Find where these zionist fools live” and harass Jews at prayer and on the street
A new video by the pro-Israel research group Canary Mission compiles recent calls by anti-Israel activists for their followers to physically locate and go after Jews and Jewish organizations.
“I think that we need to take responsibility for the Zionists in our communities,” Lamis Deek, founder of the group al-Awdah (Palestinian Right of Return Coalition), says in the video, “and we need to start finding them, [and] identifying them…”
“We need to pay attention to the Zionist synagogues. They are your enemies,” says Zahra Billoo, the executive director of CAIR’s San Francisco chapter.
“…[E]very single [Jewish] organization,” including the Jewish National and Communal Funds, “are Zionist organizations hiding behind Judaism,” says Nerdeen Kiswani of Within Our Lifetime, with each being “a legitimate target.”
Just to make clear that these hate-mongers’ use of the word “target” means physical harassment of Jews or pro-Israel organizations and not criticism, an online post from the New York group Decolonize This Place leaves no room for doubt: “Find targets nearby, find where these Zionist fools live, and where there [sic] offices are, and act!”
The video ends with a mash-up of Jews being jeered, beaten, and punched in the streets, largely in New York City, where anti-Jewish attacks increased 409% in one year.
Jewish leaders have criticized such statements, but never forcefully, and they have never taken action.
Just imagine: If pro-American and/or pro-Jewish activists were to publish the names and addresses of school board members who were promoting anti-American and anti-Jewish curricula — as these bigots are actually doing — the DOJ would be hauling them in as “domestic terrorists.” So why don’t Jewish leaders call the FBI on those preparing to attack Jews?
They prefer to “build bridges” with the very Muslim communities which — according to the ADL itself — harbor so much hatred for Jews.
Israel-hating Muslims are already attacking Jews in the streets and in their synagogues, and Jewish leaders are writing weak, PC tweets.
Will it take Jews being killed in the streets and in their synagogues — like they are in Israel — for American Jewish leaders to take this incitement seriously?
Right now, it certainly looks that way. Please (politely) tell them that they need to reconsider their commitment to politics as usual:
