      Richmond Beach, which is just south of Edmonds, north of the Seattle city limits.

        Just 5 days ago (Feb 3) they posted something on Occupy Nashville’s Facebook page. It must be a progressive group.

    Good grief. The lengths people will go to in order to drown out the message of justice for Palestinians is quite extraordinary. If they are trying to sabotage their own efforts at censorship they are doing a very good job. Hate speech, huh, they certainly know how to do that. You might wonder at their apoplectic fear of people hearing about the Palestinian case for equality and justice.

    I called the number earlier. It was an unhinged, recorded message that kept repeating the term “Hamas Islamic Nazis.”

      Yes, “Hamas Islamic Nazis…to speak at Brooklyn College…we intend to st0p them…(the speakers) want to kill Jews–we will never back down.”

      Here’s the Facebook page for the Zionist organizing entity: link to facebook.com

      If it were from genuine Israelis the message would be about Khamas Islamic Nazis. Those Yank bots are so derivative.

    The saddest part of all of this is that simply saying, “Palestinians are entitled to justice and human rights and they’re being denied these things by israel” not only is this the blood-libel reaction by the morbidly and pathologically zionist people, but mainstream america (especially the media) would require you to affirm that you don’t mean this garbage that these morons are spouting.

    Cool, I hope they spread these far and wide. I would even help do that. It’s exactly the kind of insane hyperbole that makes them look like idiots. And helps make look even more ‘moderate’ versions of this look insane.

    Yeah. I also heard Ahmadinejad was making a special
    guest appearance after the main event right
    nearby the knish booth.

    Stirring up zionist fear these days is soo wrong. So many
    new yorkers will get agita… oy…

    Boycott, Destroy and Slaughter Jews in Israel!!!
    Sounds like some rabbi smoked to much meth.

    Anything it takes to perpetuate the big lie. Crying victim
    when the perpetrators are the Israeli settlements is supremely
    low class. What happened to subtly in Jewish circles? (I guess this
    flyer obviously wasn’t to be for public viewing!)
    Someone says something about Israel and it’s a
    5-alarm fire across all boroughs.

    The phone number indicates it’s from Seattle, carrier Int’l Telecom.
    This letter is a dangerous scare tactic and should be investigated by the FBI.
    It will probably lead to the JDL and Dov Hikund. You should report this,
    it borders on incitement.

    The facebook page this seems to come from links to the JDO (Jewish Defense Organization) .I won’t link to the JDO site it because it appears to be a hate site and would be in violation of commenter rules to link to it, but anyone who wants to confirm it can Google it.

    According to Wikipedia, “The JDO was founded in the early 1980s by Mordechai Levy after a violent feud with the Jewish Defense League’s former leader Irv Rubin, who was killed or committed suicide in jail in 2002.[1] It is one of two United States offshoots of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) after a breaking with the JDL’s former leader Meir Kahane.[2]”

    “BDS means Boycott Destroy and Slaughter Jews. ”

    Who woulda thunk that it would in fact be ZIONISM that kept so many Jews afraid all these years?

    Hysterical, I called the number also……”hamas nazis, hamas nazis bombing synagogues in NY, hamas nazis killing Jews everywhere, ‘we’ aren’t going to let this happen, blah,blah,blah, nazis,nazis nazis…” The guy sounded like a drunk.
    I did leave a message saying, ….”Who is the ‘we’ that isn’t going to let this happen? Who are you? Are you an illegal Israeli living here? I heard you’re lead by a Zionist terrorist involved in the JDL bombings. You need to be investigated by the FBI”, you sound like terrorist to me”. ……roflmao!!…. that ought to get their nazi hunting anti semitic juices flowing. Luv it! If they want to play the fear mongering game let’s make them even more crazy paranoid, till they explode.

      Beitar Jerusalem’s offices torched, arson suspected

      The early morning fire occurred in the wake of several violent incidents stemming from the team’s acquisition of two Muslim players from Chechnya; Netanyahu condemns ‘shameful’ attack.

      probably beitar fans, american.

    Reads like the emails I got hit with from Israel for about nine months around the time the MW archives started.

    Had a friend I was sending MW articles who, unbeknownst to me, became rabidly Zionist and somehow ultra-Jewish in the years I hadn’t spoken to him. I didn’t realize for months that he thought it highly inappropriate for me as a gentile to comment on anything Jewish or Israeli. The nerve. He was sending our colloquies on to his buddies in the Israeli settlements. They, in turn, began barraging me with effluvium similar to this, with triple exclamation points and CAPS. Instead of HAMAS, the cretin was me. Felt like a stake through my forehead.

    RE: “The clearest distillation yet of the pro-Israel argument against tonight’s BDS event at Brooklyn College”

    MY COMMENT: Looking at that handbill, the word ‘unhinged’ comes to mind. Also, the Yiddish expression ‘meshugeh ahf toit’ (crazy as a loon)!

    It seems like a combination of Ziocaine and Methamphetamine. In high doses it clearly suppresses higher cognitive skills like grammar and punctuation, to to mention logic etc.

    Meth: “Psychological effects can include euphoria, anxiety, increased libido, alertness, concentration, increased energy, increased self-esteem, self-confidence, sociability, irritability, aggressiveness, psychosomatic disorders, psychomotor agitation, dermatillomania(compulsive skin picking), hair pulling, delusions of grandiosity, hallucinations, excessive feelings of power and invincibility, repetitive and obsessive behaviors, paranoia, and – with chronic use and/or high doses – amphetamine psychosis.”

    Ziocaine does not have Wiki entry yet, effects are surprisingly similar.

    By the way, where was this flier spotted?

    By the way, I checked about the bombing of the yeshiva in Chicago. It was one of the miraculous cases when the bomb was planted but it was not a bomb, because a provocateur agent of police (FBI?) orchestrated everything making a patsy (a teenager who was in touch with the agents for a year) believe that he is a terrorist.

    As we discussed, if you comb a community for disturbed and manipulable individuals, preferably not intelligent, you can manufacture such cases with almost no limit. I guess the author of the flier is of the same kind as the patsy in Chicago.

      Good point. I wonder how much time the FBI spends trying to entrap disturbed and manipulable members of the Jewish community into planning acts again Arabs, Muslims, or Palestinians? My guess is pretty close to zero.

        A groundbreaking work of investigative journalism, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism exposes how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than 15,000 informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the Bureau can then claim it is winning the war on terror.

        An outgrowth of Trevor Aaronson’s work as an investigative reporting fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, which culminated in an award-winning cover story in Mother Jones magazine, The Terror Factory reveals shocking information about the criminals, con men, and liars the FBI uses as paid informants–including the story of an accused murderer who has become one of the Bureau’s most prolific terrorism snitches–as well as documenting the extreme methods the FBI uses to ensnare Muslims in terrorist plots, which are in reality conceived and financed by the FBI.

    meanwhile?

    there’s the way it is?

    & the way it could be?

    through unity & solidarity in pursuit (nonviolently) of justice for palestine?

    whereupon?

    a too good to be true world?

    >> … BDS which means Boycott Destroy and Slaughter Jews in Israel …

    1. If one has already destroyed the Jews in Israel, why would anyone also want to slaughter them?
    2. That said, BDS couldn’t mean “Boycott Destroy and Slaughter Jews in Israel” because the letters J and I are missing.
    3. BDS could, however, mean “Building Democratic Societies”.

    Edjumucations, people!
