DC AIPAC Protest Solidarity Vigil- Newton
06 Mar 2006
"Whenever the ACLU holds one of its infamous "emergency town meetings" their nefarious allies generally show up to voice their solidarity. Typical of these is the vicious anti-Israel crowd that disgraced the entrance to Newton North with such vile signs as "Victory to the Infitada" (translation: kill all the Jews in Israel) or "Free Palestine from Walls, Terrorism and Occupation" (then take the Jewish homeland). Our Jewish mayor permitted these Israel-haters to brandish a huge PLO-Hamas flag in the auditorium. Meanwhile Congressman Frank, who recently returned from Israel as a participant in the International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians, was too busy attacking the president and all things Republican and pretended not to notice the huge PLO-Hamas flag staring him in the face."

A few Palestine solidarity folks had a small vigil at the ACLUs emergency civil liberties town meeting in Newton today. Congressman Barney Frank was the arrogant bastard of honor and as he is a paid shill for the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee we felt it our duty to protest his appearance. AIPAC is the focus of No attack on Iran, Free Palestine and stop spying protests during their yearly mass conspiracy in DC today so we stood out in solidarity with those brave souls.

We held the usual Free Palestine and Victory to the Intifada signs plus we had some poster board with Barney Franks connections to AIPAC detailed.

The neighbors called 911 but the cops have gotten used to us so they drove away after seeing we weren’t real terrorists.

We successfully predicted the retorts of a few SUV drivers in the time it took them to open their power tinted windows. A few locals stopped by to gripe about the new and old Newton High schools and alleged corruption in the building contracts. Some one suggested we demo in Dorchester because we would get a better response and we agreed that Newton is a bad neighborhood for Palestine activists.

The Mayor slithered by and we heckled him.

A delivery car drove up with at least 50 pizzas in it so we had to go into the meeting to see if the democrats were buying liberal votes cheaply.

We were surprised the ACLUs Brian Coor tried hard to rip the flag of Palestine out the authors hands as we walked into the Newton North auditorium. Fortunately the Newton, Lynn, Andover, Lexington, Boston University and Harvard University Police have been exercising our free speech muscles and we made it into the nearly full, vote for a democrat in November meeting with the colors of freedom intact.

The scene of hundreds of white Newton liberals laughing and clapping for a un principaled, Israeli funded, hypocrite was as shocking as Ripleys discovery of the pod birthing lair in Aliens.

Indy media does not have enough server space for the contempt these people deserve but Zionists and capitalists do deserve credit for their ability to house train liberals.

Afterwards the discussion turned to Israeli involvement in the World Trade Center demolitions. We did some recycling out back and the Israeli flag was spotted hanging high in the high school cafeteria.

No one from the ACLU was seen trying to rip it down.

Tom Mountains "slurs" local activists

Tom Mountains tirade of slurs against local activists demonstrating their concern for the residents of the Balata refuge camp in Nablus Palestine on Wednesday night at city hall was indicative of a bigger problem.

Calling courageous Americans “scum”, “anti Semites” and “terrorists” revealed the depths to which supporters of the Israeli state like Tom and will go to defame legitimate dissent. What could incite more effort for the growing movement of Americans and people throughout the world who are working to divest from, boycott, and sanction that apartheid state for its crimes against humanity in Palestine?

Tom’s outburst did nothing to answer the question I asked him. Why did the Tab fail to report that at a rally presided over by Mayor Cohen and the Newton police, supporters of the settlements in Gaza during the disengagement were chanting “Kill all the Arabs! Kill all the Arabs!”?

To answer Mr. Mountains demands to know if we had a permit to vigil I would refer him to the Constitution of the United States which we consider to be the only permission we need to assemble and express political opinions and dissent.

What Tom might not have noticed in his hurry to condemn us was the constant surveillance we were under by agents of unidentified government agencies who it appeared were acting in concert with the Newton police and City hall. The Newton Anti Patriot Act Resolution that myself and many other Newton residents worked hard to produce forbids that kind of collaboration in targeting citizens exercising freedom of speech.

Especially troubling was the federal or state secret agents attempt to follow us to our home afterwards.

What foreign regime is worth that not so subtle degradation of the core standards we hold as evidence of our national morality?”

Mountain: A place for hate By Tom Mountain/ Our turn

[sniped]

" The ACLU-David Cohen Tour, with special guest Barney Frank, came to Newton North last Sunday for a "Newton Emergency Town Meeting" in what routinely morphed into another tiresome Bush-bashing. The ACLU advertised the event as a forum on "The Bush Administration's domestic spying, torture, rendition, and secret prison program."

Whenever the ACLU holds one of its infamous "emergency town meetings" their nefarious allies generally show up to voice their solidarity. Typical of these is the vicious anti-Israel crowd that disgraced the entrance to Newton North with such vile signs as "Victory to the Infitada" (translation: kill all the Jews in Israel) or "Free Palestine from Walls, Terrorism and Occupation" (then take the Jewish homeland). Our Jewish mayor permitted these Israel-haters to brandish a huge PLO-Hamas flag in the auditorium. Meanwhile Congressman Frank, who recently returned from Israel as a participant in the International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians, was too busy attacking the president and all things Republican and pretended not to notice the huge PLO-Hamas flag staring him in the face.

Yet if some fool had barged in waving a Confederate flag or sporting a Klansman hood he wouldn't have lasted 30 seconds. Liberal Barney would have become hysterical while our No Place For Hate Mayor would have called in the swat team."

http://www2.townonline.com/newton/opinion/view.bg?articleid=443940

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Halfway through the meeting, a man appeared at a side entrance to the hall, about fifty feet from the podium holding a roughly three- by four-foot Palestinian flag on a pole over his shoulder. He did not take a seat, speak, unfurl or wave his banner. Far from being in anyone’s face, the flag (not the man) was a minimal distraction—and, importantly, there was no discussion of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

http://www.townonline.com/newton/opinion/view.bg?articleid=448603

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I did not see an American flag located anyplace in the NNHS auditorium — a violation of Massachusetts law! — only a Palestinian flag and political signage advocating, “Civil Rights for Palestinians.”

Letter: Letter-writer defiles Israel Wednesday, March 15, 2006

In his March 8 letter to the TAB, Xxxx Xxxxxxx indicates that he is upset because Tom Mountain has characterized him and fellow ‘activists’ as scum while demonstrating against Israel’s raid into Balata terrorist stronghold.

Perhaps it would enlighten Mr. Xxxxxxx to know there never existed an independent Arab state called Palestine nor does such a state exist at present. On the other hand, Israel became a nation in about 1300 B.C. and a kingdom in 1020 B.C. with continuous Jewish presence until today. Arab occupiers colonized the region by the sword only during the seventh century A.D. unfortunately, without CNN coverage.

Xxxxxxx feels comfortable defiling Israel by calling her an apartheid state and worse without the support of any evidence, but is offended when he is called scum. He is right, because the correct term that applies to him is disingenuous scum. He can not admit that the ultimate goal of “activists” such as himself is the destruction of the Jewish state, since no action by Israel that is defensive or retaliatory in nature is acceptable to the “activists.” Only the suicide of Israel as an independent Jewish state would be acceptable for him.

Xxxxxx and friends who present themselves as humanitarians will never be seen protesting slavery and genocide in places such as the Sudan, Rwanda, and Indonesia where millions have been massacred, or the degradation of women in the Muslim world. For over 100 years, the Arab-Israeli conflict has never been about lands, fences, or raids into terrorists’ strongholds.

The issue has been and is an Arab intolerance toward non-Muslim ethnicities, culminating in pogroms and the expulsion of 900,000 Jews from 22 Arab countries. For a very odd reason, Xxxxxx and friends can not admit, even to themselves, that it does not matter how they package their “activism.” It is an obsessive hate of the concept of a Jewish state that motivates this kind of activism and terrorism alike.

The ACLU’s “Emergency Town Meeting” hosted by Mayor Cohen at the NNHS Auditorium on Sunday March 5 and listed in the TAB the Wednesday before was anything but an emergency. The ACLU recruits and fundraises by tearing down our government and ranting against America using language that sounds like hate speech. The ACLU attracts a fringe element like the protester who held a PLO flag and others who brandished anti-American/anti-Israel signs. The American flag was nowhere to be seen. Anyone could have forced an ugly confrontation. Which begs the question: Why wasn’t a Newton police officer present when the ACLU expected 650 people? Newton’s Police Detail office informed me [that no one hired a police detail, although it’s required for a group of more than 150]. How irresponsible on the part of the ACLU, the City of Newton and the Newton Public Schools Operations Department! Was this event actually held illegally?.

Guys, please. I am fully supportive of Palestinian liberation, but that isn't served by targeting AIPAC without seeing it as a fairly minor player in capitalist politics. Insinuationg some eight-legged Zionist conspiracy which has 'occupied' 'our government' (you've used these phrases before) smacks of Buchanan and even David Duke, not the Left. We see things through the lens of class, and insofar as we support national liberation, it's not from a nationalist perspective but from an anti-imperialist one.

This little group--Dave, Pete, etc.--has done a number of things in recent months, but the most tasteless was protesting at the home of a Likudnik in some North Shore town, and then screaming about the Zionist occupation of that town when cops showed up. Sorry, but that reeks of anti-Semitism.

This meeting was called to discuss civil liberties. If you wanted to demonstrate, it should have been to push the assembly to the left on that issue. Your obsession with Israeli crimes shows that you don't care about building a movement opposed to capitalism and imperialsm here--that would mean opposing the attack on civil liberties seriously--and would rather show up at any event where there are Zionists (even if it's a concert--I don't see you doing the same for Republicans, or Evangelists, or contras, or anyone else, and don't tell me the Zionists have more blood on the hand than the American State--they don't) with those ridiculous scarves. You arent resistance fighters, you're loafers, and tactically-challenged ones at that. You should be embarrassed to compare yourselves to the heroes of the Palestinian resistance. Please get serious or stop making the Palestinian solidarity movement look ridiculous.

ZionistSS and thier enablerSS want Americans to take sides in the Zionist crusade. But they want you to take thier side. When nazis occupied thier neighbor's homelands, the US aided and supported the victims of foreign aggresors. For some reason, when it comes to the Zionist crusade in Palestine, the US supports the invadors of Palestine.

And it isn't JUST AIPAC that pushes democraps and republitrash to support the invadors of palestine. Most money that "goes to" "Israel" doesn't really go to "Israel". It must be spent here in the US. And the military industial complex makes a few extra billion dollars a year, while thier product (weapons of death and destruction) "goes to" "Israel". The military industry has thier lobbies standing right next to the AIPAC lobbies pushing politicians to put even more cash into thier pockets by aiding the Zionist crusader state.

Then there are lobbies of banking. Banks have loaned cash to Zionist crusaders. And every few years, the politicians in the US give Zionist crusaders billion$ of the US taxpayers cash in loan guarentees and that cash comes right bake to the banks. banks have a sure thing profit by loaning to Zionists while Americans often can't get loans because of the credit risks. So, instead of helping the American economy grow, banks ensure that Zionist occupation of Palestine holds on. The loan guarentees never pay back the loans, just the intrest. Zionists want the US cash locked up in Zionist intrests because then, the US economy is pidgion holed into maintaining ZIonist occupation of palestine. The more US cash stuck in Zionist occupied Palestine, the more stuck the US is in "defending" the offense of Zionism.

32 is the typical left zionist that doesn't want anyone criticizing Israel,let alone mentioning it.At least the 're embarrassed about the apartheid state and it's crimes against the Palestinians.AIPAC and the other Israeli lobbies that control our government are another embarrassment for zionists and they don't want Americans to find out about the spying and corruption.The truth is coming out and the zionists can't stop it.If you're Jewish they call you a self-hater and if not they call you an anti-semite.The zionists can't stop Americans from speaking out and it really pisses them off.America owes Israel nothing and should cut off all aid.

Re: DC AIPAC Protest Solidarity Vigil- Newton

"Palestinian suicide bombers good": Palestinian suicide bombers are responding under the extream duress of Zionist crusade. They are also just a tiny fraction of a percent of the victims of Zionism. Palestinian suicide bombers need be neither "good" nor bad for Zionism to be an offense (THE offense) which palestinians respond to in many ways. It runs the spectrum from those who give up and leave, through those who write about thier suffering at the hands of Zionist invadors, to those few who actualy fight back against the Zionist crusaders. But one thing they all have in commin is that they are ALL victims of the ZIonist's war of conquest and they are ALL acting under the extream duress that the offense of ZIonism forces onto them.

"Jews defending themselves bad": Well, you can't be talking about the Zionists as occupying your neighbor's homeland AND constantly stealing more and more Palestinian lands while never hesitating to murder the Palestinians who resist (a tiny fraction of a percent) as well as Palestinians who are just in the wrong place as defiend by the ZIonist crusaders can not honestly be considered "defending themselves". Zionists are not defending themselves. Zionists are occupying the Palestinian's homeland while they continue with the murderous theft of more and more palestinian lands.

Indoctrination has obviously already brainwashed himself to believe the ZIonist's offensive war of conquest is a defensive action. His chant "defending themselves" shows that much. How could a wolf in sheep's clothing be practicing to be a liberal progessive by chanting lies such as Zionists "defending themselves" ???

OY VEY!!! Stop this stupid back and forth tit for tat.You will never convince the religious,fanatics and fascist extremists who actually are crazy enough to believe they are god's chosen people and should own the land god gave them in the bible over thousands of years ago.They think god speaks to them and that fairy tales in a book written thousands of years ago can be proven as fact.The children of Moses and king David Oy Vey!!This is a a crazy religious cult that will actually start wars and kill thousands of Arabs in the name of their cruel war god.This kind of delusional thinking is so dangerous and insane that the zionist jews and christian zionists are on a crusade to destroy all their enemies in the Middle East and could start a nuclear war,armagedeon,the end of the world.Before the state of Israel we had no enemies in the middle East.The old testament is a very dangerous book.Read it and you'll see what I'm talking about.I can't believe people take it so seriously and think it's god's book.Humans are very suseptable to delusions and fantasy and this can lead to psychopathic tendencies.Many christians and jews suffer from this mental illness.Killing in the name of god is insane.The god of war in the old testament is evil and perverted and will only lead to war and misery for the world.Jews and christians must come to their senses and stop believing in this book.Give up on this crusade and holy war Mr. Bush and Sharon and AIPAC and Israel and Pat Robertson,Falwell,Billy Graham,etc. Why would any intelligent jew want to be on their side? These religious fanatics are insane morons.
