PROTEST the Boston Celebration of "Israeli Independence Day"

Information on the weekend's protest.
PROTEST the Boston Celebration of "Israeli Independence Day"

- 54 Years of Zionist Racism and Genocide - The U.S./Israeli War Against the Palestinians

Sunday, June 9, 2002 - Copley Square, Boston Gather at 11:30 a.m. for Noon Rally Then March to the Site of the "Israel Day" Event

Halt all U.S. Support to Israel - Financial, Political, and Military!

End the Occupation!

Freedom and Justice for Palestine!

All Palestinian Refugees Must Go Back to Their Homes!

Israel has maintained its occupation for more than half a century, devastating the Palestinian people. The state of Israel was founded by acts of terror against Palestinian villages (Deir Yassin and more than 400 others) and by the institution of citizenship and land rights based on race (the "law of return"). We say yes to the Jewish people, but no to the Zionist ideology that guides the brutal oppression of the Palestinians. It is no less a racist ideology than is anti-semitism.

Israeli "independence" is no cause for celebration. It has meant misery and deprivation for the indigenous Palestinians whose land was stolen to create the Israeli state. Five million Palestinians (60% of all Palestinians) are refugees outside Palestine, with no return on the horizon. Three million Palestinians live under the military occupation, on less than 14% of their former lands. We uphold the right of return of all Palestinians displaced by Israel. We are outraged that this public celebration should take place in Boston. In Jenin, Israeli tanks demolished ambulances, injured civilians were left to die in the streets, and bodies still lie beneath the rubble. To the Israeli Defense Forces, anything that moves is a target: reports of the IDF shooting at children, the elderly, the disabled, physicians, and members of the press have come almost daily.

We are protesting the Israeli state, the U.S. government that backs, arms and controls it to safeguard the profits of the U.S. oil companies, and the violent military occupation of Palestine.

English vs Newspeak

"[Zionism] is no less a racist ideology than is anti-semitism."

Observe the semantic error.

Oppression of Palestinians (or any other Semitic people, including Sephardic Jews) IS anti-Semitic.

The Zionist ideology itself, and AshkeNAZIs such as the ADL - and so-called "Christians" who endorse Zionism - are EXTREMELY anti-Semitic.

Causasian Jews are NOT Semitic. Most American "Jews" are Caucasion. And most of these "Jews" are not genuine Jews.

The term "anti-Semitic" and "Jewish" is abused by AshkeNAZIs as a phoney badge to protect their un-Constitutional priviledges. (It's also abused - to a lesser extent - by some other "religious" groups.)


Amendment I.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof....


So why, for example, is there a "Jewish War Vets of the USA" in the Veterans Administration? That's against the law, just as it's unlawful for "our" government to establish a "Buddhist War Vets of the USA".

Notice a pattern of such unlawful manipulations establishing themselves just prior to the First World War?

Too bad history ain't taught in American schools or "universities".

Try Carroll Quigley. That's what the "Big Boys" read.
