Something happened again last night, this time in Philadelphia. It happened a day after another 'demonstration' in NYC's Times Square. First from NYC. From the NY Post.
Last night in Philadephia:
Pro-Palestinian protesters took to the streets of New York City again Saturday, storming Times Square after they were rebuffed as they tried to enter the American Museum of Natural History for the second weekend in a row.
The protest, which started at the Upper West Side museum at 2 p.m., included the expectation that demonstrators would enter the institution two hours later for an “anti-colonial tour.”
Around 200 anti-Israel demonstrators gathered outside the museum by 4 p.m., carrying signs and chanting, “Free Palestine,” along with antisemitic slogans like, “there is only one solution, Intifada revolution.”
Within Our Lifetime, the group that organized Saturday’s protest, asked demonstrators to show up to the museum in “small groups” adorned with Palestinian flags and banners, according to an Instagram post.
Philadelphia lawmakers and Jewish commentators have hit out at demonstrators who targeted a falafel restaurant in Philadelphia owned by an Israeli Jewish chef, chanting slogans accusing it of "genocide."
On Sunday, footage emerged of a group of pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathering outside Goldie on midtown Sansom Street who were chanting "Goldie, Goldie you can't hide, we charge you with genocide."
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, the march was organized by the Philly Palestine Coalition, which in October called for a boycott of "Zionist"-owned businesses in the city, including Goldie outlets and others owned by Michael Solomonov.
This is dangerous and antisemitic. It's vile. If they want to do this outside an Israeli consulate or something like that, I understand. Protesting the government is okay, but targeting businesses, museums and public libraries associated with people of the Jewish faith is wrong.
My heart goes out to my Jewish friends. And don't get me started on Representative Jayapal, you can look it up and make your own conclusion. I have.
