The good news, such as it is, is that the mask is off the ‘Palestinians’ and it’s also off their supporters. They’re feeling their strength and they’ve stopped pretending that they want anything other than the mass murder of Jews.
The pretense of a two-state solution and any kind of coexistence is done. They’ve openly embraced Hamas.
At least 800 pro-Palestinian protesters have descended on Union Square following a day-long rally that saw demonstrators climbing the Brooklyn Bridge, damaging cop cars, and blocking traffic.
Demonstrators chanted “free Palestine” as they mounted the iconic George Washington statue and plastered it with stickers that read “Zionists are terrorists.”
The marchers even erected a makeshift basketball hoop with the words “f–k Israel” scrawled on the backboard, haters of the Jewish state took turns shooting free throws.
A group of anti-Israel protesters on 13th street were heard chanting “long live Hamas.”
This is the same statue that their ilk desecrated with anti-American message right after 9/11.
Most of the media still refuses to parse what messages like “by any means” mean.
Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters swarmed Crown Heights to voice their desire for the elimination of the Jewish state.
Demonstrators carried banners proclaiming “honor the martyrs” and “by any means necessary.”
At least 7,000 pro-Palestinian protesters shut down the Brooklyn Bridge during a march through the borough Saturday, openly cheering Hamas terrorists’ barbaric attacks on Israel — and justifying the murders of innocent mothers and babies.
“Freedom by any means, land back by any means,” declared Dorian, a 24-year-old protester from Queens, during the three-mile Flood Brooklyn for Gaza march, which began at 3 p.m. in front of the Brooklyn Museum in Crown Heights, not far from the Hasidic Lubavitcher headquarters on Eastern Parkway, where a Sabbath festival was being held.
By any means is an obvious euphemism. ‘Honor the martyrs’ means support terrorists. But many of the pro-terrorist rallies are shedding the euphemisms. Chanting, “long live Hamas’ may be hard even for the media to unsee.
And the larger evolution here may be hard to reverse. The mask is off. There is no longer a pretense that this is about a peaceful solution.
The pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel movement has moved openly and directly to advocating for the destruction of Israel. Also this is the position adopted by the hard leftist flank of the Democrats. There will be a reckoning with that.
