At a Free Palestine rally, Ben Kawaller meets the war protesters who’d rather give violence a chance.
Jew were living in that part of the world before Islam even existed. Who are the real colonizers??
BTW-- The Christians are calling, they want Constantinople back.
The ignorance of those protesters is astounding.
"It's not about the Jews, it's about colonizers and the colonized."
Sell that story to someone dumb, protestors. It's about the Jews. If you were remotely interested in the other, you'd have been protesting every other nation on the face of the Earth. You picked Jews, and only Jews, because you think they can be pushed around.
IDF regrets to inform you otherwise.
The absolute cluelessness of so many college students is breathtaking. They have no clue about how ugly the world they advocate for would be.
"it sure would be nice if we could say with a straight face that Israel’s current government has pursued nothing but peaceful coexistence with its Palestinian neighbors."
That's true for Israel's current government, but Israel has been trying to make peace with Palestinians--and give them the land they claim they want for their own state--since 1967. Pali leaders, most notably Arafat, responded with The Three Nos.
If Palis want peaceful co-existence--hell, I do too--they need to find leaders who will bargain in good faith, make the deal, and built their state already.
And ask the nice Jewish neighbors for cups of sugar, not fuel for Hamas rockets.
Remember when the left was against war and big pharma? I member! Every free press reader should take a pledge not to vote for the party that backs these psychopaths.
You should head over to San Francisco next week for some before and after photos. They finally got rid of homeless encampments to save face in front of CCP dictator Xi Jinping and his Commiefornia court eunuch Gavin.
My God, it’s starting to feel like you’re better off hiring high school students than your college grads. We’re in a lot of trouble once these people decide that they want positions of power and start running for office.
“global intifada”—by which he meant the overthrow of capitalism—“is a desire shared by all working people across the world.”
The only people I've ever heard calling for the overthrow of Capitalism are tatted, over pierced, purple haired baristas and burger flippers; you know, those young people who think the world owes them a living and want everyone else to pay for it.
Great job. Takes about 5 seconds of questions to see how shallow these peoples' understanding of the situation is.
I couldn't get through even 45 seconds of that without feeling nauseous. The first five words say all you need to hear, "Peace is not the answer." That this comes from the mouths of a group called "Peace and Freedom Party" is an irony only Orwell could truly appreciate.
At the risk of being labeled a tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist, I can't help but wonder how this intensely savage anti-Semitic movement (for lack of a better word) came together in such a quick amount of time. The first of their now endless hatefest rallies began less than 24 hours after the Hamas assault. FFS, the bodies of the slaughtered innocents were not even cold yet before "River to the Sea" echoed from bullhorns across the country -- and the world.
You can't tell me that this was purely organic, "grass roots" organizing. I'm more than willing to accept that the FBI or even the CIA has a hand in this. Consider for a moment the shift in public dialog. Just like that, nobody is talking about Ukraine, the impending implosion of the economy (Moody's just downgraded the U.S. again yesterday), transphobia, climate "crisis" any more. Death to Israel is the new "Latest Thing". Because the carbon footprint of massive and endless war doesn't count.
As the Free Press has pointed out repeatedly, the ignorance of history and even of current events expressed by these “protesters” is due to the total capture of our education system, from kindergarten through University. Unless we reform the educational system, we will continue down this path. Withholding donations to Universities is a start but much more needs to be done.
The most pathetic of all the pathetic individuals in this video is the woman who rambles on about DACA when asked what decolonization would look like here. Here, decolonization would look like Native Americans storming into her home and scalping her and her family. If she isn't OK with that, she shouldn't be OK with it happening to Israelis.
So disgusting... There may be hope for the Israelis, but this country isn't going to last much longer.
I know I shouldn’t be shocked, but I always am. These people are so unbelievably ill informed. They know nothing about nothing, yet they’re out there marching in the streets. These useful idiots put us all in danger. The young lady on the stage talking about growing mangoes obviously has no idea that Israel left countless greenhouses in Gaza when they withdrew in 2005. Hamas burned down every single one of them. She has no idea that Palestine is run by kleptocrats who line their pockets by stealing aid money. Ugh.
Jewish blood really stirs up these monsters.
I believe that the notion that these "kids" are going through their adolescent idealistic crazies and will grow out of it is wishful thinking. They have been radicalized in their cultish zeal and have actively invested too much of themselves in their delusions to acknowledge the naiveté of their imagined enlightenment. The theme of antisemitism is the current rallying focus serving to reenforce their sense of meaning, purpose and identity as crusaders, but when that loses its momentum and no longer provides the self-elevating shot-in-the-arm that it does today, there will be the next straw enemy to provide "purpose". If they continue to be treated like youths needing patient tolerance, they will likely get more organized and possibly even more radical. I'm afraid that the US is entering a long struggle with its own home grown expression of the ISIS phenomenon.
