On March 30th, the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ), an attempt to mobilize millions of demonstrators aimed at converging on the state of Israel and inevitably breaching its borders, took place. Joining the likes of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Mavi Marmara flotilla veterans, were the inevitable horde of useful idiots from the West, including British anti-Semite George Galloway, anti-war Bush-basher Cindy Sheehan, Truther conspiracy advocate Richard Falk, and radical race theorist Cornel West. Yet it was one of the movement’s “official advisers” whose name stood out: president Obama’s former spiritual advisor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

In earnest, the GMJ was little more than a modern-day, jihadist-inspired confrontation aimed eliminating the Jewish State. It was an aim revealed by the GMJ’s logo, showing a map of Palestine in place of Israel. The GMJ rejects any two-state solution with the nation they consider the epicenter of “apartheid, ethnic cleansing and Judaisation.” Furthermore, the organizers insist that they are “renewing the struggle to liberate Palestine,” a particular expression that is a common euphemism for the destruction of Israel.

The organizers planned a four-pronged assault on Israel’s borders from four neighboring countries: Jordan, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon. Additional protests were organized to take place at Israeli embassies in Europe and Arab countries. Palestinian activist Dr. Mustafa Barghouti made the inevitable disclaimer that always attends such assaults on Israel’s sovereignty. “This march is absolutely peaceful and non-violent, and we will try everything possible to prevent violence,” Barghouti said. This disclaimer was followed by the curious caveat: “Of course, if they use violence against us, the world should protest,” he adds. “But the march is absolutely peaceful and nobody will try to provoke violence.”

Of course unprovoked violence did break out. It was no more than what was expected considering the history of Palestinian activism: A May 15, 2011 demonstration on Nabka Day, the day when Palestinians mourn the establishment of the Jewish State in 1948, resulted in 15 deaths when protesters attempt to breach Israel’s border.  A reprise of violence occurred June 5, 2011, on Naska Day, when Arab nations commemorate their defeat (or “setback”) by Israel in 1967.  At least 23 people were killed during a protest near the Golan Heights, when Israeli troops once again prevented a border breach by Palestinian demonstrators coming from Syria.

    I love it when a Judeophobe the size of "Reverend" Knigth gets away from the mantra "Some of my best
    friends are Jews" and says it the way it is …
    The Jews around OBAMA didn't let him speak to "Reverend" GOD DAMN AMERICA…! ! !
    So much for the 80% Jews who, knowing piddly about him but just because he was their political party's
    choice (Jews are born Democraps which is why Jewish Republicans are as scarce as hen's teeth) voted
    for him and 60% will still reelect him…
    Well, let it be known to them, whether they care or not, that with friends like President OBAMA, Israel needs
    no enemies and, things going the way they are, it won't take long for something like what happened to the
    German Jews to happen to all of them

    • Choi

      It's about time that Jewish-Americans STOPPED voting for their grandparents' "Democratic Party".
      THAT Democratic Party NO LONGER EXISTS.
      That bucket of coal the Democratic Precinct Captain brought their ancestors in 1936 DIDN'T buy Generational loyalty,especially to a Party that now HATES THEM!

  • Rifleman

    First we had bill ayers involved in pali blockade running, now wright is involved in the jihad against the existence of Israel. Yet somehow, we're supposed to forget the friend and trainee these two share, obama, and what that indicates about him.

    does Mt Everest have snow on its peak..does Rev Wright HATE Israel answer 100% YES

    Stategic Vision America and the Crisis of Global Power by Zbigniew Brzezinski
    Page 107 " A more coercive US attitude and policy toward Mexican immigrants would heighten Mexican resentment, adversely affecting the overall US/Mexico partnership. After 9/11, the issue of border security has come to be seen as essential to homeland security; the specter of an Islamic terrorist c rossing the border from Mexico enhanced popular cries to seal off the border completely. America's decision to construct a wall/fence to separate itself from Mexico as a mechanism to support border security has already stimulated anti-American sentiments." ( con't) in next comment

  • Dispozadaburka

    "It evokes negative images of Israel's construction of a "security barrier" in the West Bank or of the Berlin Wall. An internationally declining America is likely to become even more disturbed by the insecurity of its porous border with Mexico and the resulting immigration, inspiring the continuation of similar policies and creating a dangerous downward spiral for relations between the two neighbors."

  • BS77

    Like the "Reverend" Wright, the touted march turned out to be a dismal failure….another pile of garbage from the
    lying left.

  • Saltire

    Did Rev Wright's church fund his trip for this demonstration? And, if it did, is it a violation of the church's 501(c)3 status by becoming a political organization?

  • Schlomotion

    Mr. Ahlert forgot to include the following information in his article:

    Israel illegally blocked the Marchers website and misdirected traffic to a Hasbara: http://mondoweiss.net/2012/03/global-march-to-jer

    Israel Googlebombed to make sure its propaganda ranked higher than the actual march site: http://www.israelnewsagency.com/iranglobalmarchto

    They left the smug message that: "The above news content was edited and SEO optimized in Israel by the Leyden Digital Media Group – Israel, New York."

    The event was portrayed as a no show (except for the rock throwers), but the largest march on the border was in Jordan with between 20,000 and 30,000 protestors, and in Lebanon between 2,000-3,000 marched. http://mondoweiss.net/2012/03/land-day-in-picture

    And…. The Israelis killed somebody: http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=4

      IN other words, Israel took measures to prevent a mass infiltration of the country and succeeded. And that's really p'd you off, hasn't it. A-hole.

      • Schlomotion

        It must be hard living every day in Israel believing that your country is going to be infiltrated. That sounds a lot like the United States in the 1950s. North Korea probably has the greatest worry of all about being infiltrated. One thing North Korea likes to talk about a lot is how they are Democratic. They of course have a demilitarized zone that they lord over, which is basically a strip of land on the edge of their country. They are of course, working on a Peace Process that involves engulfing their neighbors, who they claim exist artificially. They are one of the most militarized nations. They rely obscenely heavily on foreign aid. They have a nuclear weapons stockpile. Their constitution provides for freedom of speech and the press, but the government prohibits the exercise of these rights in practice. They have a great big star and two blue bars on their flag. They freak out when ships pass well outside their territorial waters. Above all, they are so, SO afraid of being infiltrated. I am starting to confuse these two countries with one another.

    • UCSPanther

      Nice to see Israel sticking it to those losers.

    • Zionista

      the whole thing was a bust – the Jew haters got nowhere!! Don't mess with Israel or you'll get a well deserved kick in the butt.

    • ajnn

      you are citing some very UNRELIABLE sources in 'mondenweiss' and 'maan'.

      Mondenweiss is with 'the nation' magazine and is personally a hater. his postings are usually inaccurate. Maan is run by Hezbollah and paid for by iran. this is less than reliable.

      • Schlomotion

        Yeah. Those are some mighty inaccurate photos of thousands of people.

  • mrbean

    Muslim Arabs and their proxy terrorists have chosen the rules of the game. Jews should let them know in no uncertain terms what "Never Again" means. As for the Palestinian Muslim terrorists, it is a matter of record that Palestinians strap munitions on their own women and children and send them out on homicide-suicide missions to murder other innocent Jewish women and children in markets, restuarants, on school buses, and in their homes. The Palestinians in their own words and by their actions are committed to the genocide of the Jewish people therefore, have foreited their rights to even exist at all let alone be given a UN and US sanctioned terrorist state.

      You're an uneducated fool. Go back to the trailer park and talk to you're inbred family about pigs feet

  • Marty

    No doubt the anti-semites and genocidal sociopaths organizing this fiasco all hope that some loss of life will occur on their side in order to blame the tragedy on Israel. That is, after all, what these slugs do best. islamic cowards will shoot at Israeli soldiers and then quickly hide behind available women and children. They will, of course, invite the press to cover the outrages even if they have to shoot the women and children themselves. And the Jew-bashing media will do its dhimmitude best to indict Israeli crimes against humanity. But this is what muslims and leftist racists always do. It's easy to count on them to be morally repugnant hypocrites.

    .
    ~ Obama's Brotha in da Hood, was not jus a hood ornament, after all. y'all.

    When WRIGHT IS WRONG……….(again).

  • mrbean

    Reverend Wright is an advocate of Black Liberation Theology which is racist Marxism masquarading as Christianity. Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community, Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.

  • Bert

    As usual the cowardly inept American Jewish leadership is missing in action. They should be confronting Obama with the criminality of his closest supporters including his 'religious' adviser Jeremiah Wright. It is the enemies of America and Israel that are bold and fearless. It is the Jewish leadership that cringes in fear and is sunk in cowardly denial.
    This is how the Jews always bring down attacks upon themselves.

  • Ghostwriter

    I'd like to ask those like Schlomotion a question. When was the last time you ever heard of anyone in Israel wanting to kill Americans? At this point,zero. The Palestinians on the other hand,have often screamed "Death to America" because that's who they are.

  • Ghostwriter

    And also,I wish Rev. Wright would return to the ooze from which he was spawned from.

  • pyeatte

    Given your words about Israel, Mr. Wright, your existence is a sin and a crime against humanity.

  • Looking4Sanity

    I was sincerely hoping that we had heard the last from the walking colostomy bag formerly known as "the oh so reverend" Wright. Alas, it was too much to hope for.

  • neils60

    Two matters of interest here. First, regarding the US refusing to call Jerusalem, Israel's capitol. To make matters worse, the president's national security advisor, John Brennan, refuses to call Jerusalem anything but "al Quds". Just listen to his speeches. Of course, no correction from anyone in the administration. And, regarding Wright, the quote in the article regarding "them Jews". It was sanitized, a few hours after he expressed his standard and expected anti-Jewish sentiments, by stating that he meant to say, "them Zionists", as if that made his statement, and him, any less disgusting and repugnant to most Americans.

    The chances of Rev. Wright , Louis Farakkhan, Bill Ayers & Jessie Jackson NOT communicating in any way with Obama is the same chances of winning a Mega Millions Lottery.
    It's easy to know how Obama Thinks:
    If he is silent then things are going the way he wants it> OWS> Global March To Jerusalem etc.
    If he speaks then he lets you know it is not going according to his plan: Trayvon Martin (though he is silent in relation to the black Panthers involvement, Civil Disobediance & putting a prize of $10,000 on Zimmermans head>> Professor Gates incident.

  • Stan

    Obama says he is Christian but if you pay careful attention all the European countries are the same, with Russia & Iran he is submissive to because he respects their power & Xtremely close to the Muslim Brotherhood & most of the Islamic countries in the Mideast, obviously not Isreal. So, all of his friends I believe synchronize.
