  • Federal official fires gun at pro-Palestine demonstrators following scuffle in LA
    • I am in LA, I did not attend this. I went to the last counter demo of Stand ON Us 2012, I believe. Hundreds of Stand ON Us-ers rushed across the street and rained down spit on us. I looked into the sky and saw spit spit spit, little children were screaming and crying in fear. One Palestinian man had his arm broken. They had a security company for themselves that busied themselves harassing and NOT protecting Palestinian Solidarity protesters. This firm although hired by Stand ON Us were standing more on our side of the street than theirs. This Security firm allowed Stand ON Us-ers to cross the street to provoke, and did nothing when asked to remove them.
      Stand ON Us is famously violent, they also like to try and infiltrate Palestinian activist meetings in LA, shut down art by Gazan addition to curtailing free speech across our campuses.

      Time was spent the day before at the Palestinian demo, explaining to a very young Palestinian girl why a Zionist would give her the middle finger, she was horrified . I myself have been kicked, had death threats called into my home, spit on and of course sexually harassed (they love this tactic). LA zionist are extremists and i dont think LA solidarity activists should counter their demos, we should turn our backs on them, we should be smart about how we deal with protest and our safety.

  • Chomsky supports portions of BDS agenda, but faults others, citing realism and int'l consensus
    • Then tell who is the *consensus* he speaks of?, and see if you can do it with being nasty.

    • When he speaks of consensus, isn't he speaking about Governments?? Isnt BDS the answer to those governments? I think that he believes we are all powerless, no power to the people here. Noted, is that he offers no way forward, i cant think of anyone that wants to go back to the time of hand wringing and writing sad notes to our elected officials only to be insulted by a hasbara ridden reply. BDS is a gift to all of us that care for Palestine. AND BDS always educates, so win or lose i know i was NOT complicit....and BTW love the posters here, i have learned a lot.

      Did he really pull hasbara tactic#43. can we somehow make this about Harvard? cheeky monkey!

  • Princeton restaurant promotes night of Israeli wine-- from occupied Golan
  • Revealed: Right-wing group StandWithUs' strategy to combat Israel Apartheid Week
    • The Los Angeles chapter should be renamed *Spit On Us* because that is how they like to engage solidarity activist in L.A.
