Apparently, Jewschool poster Cole Krawitz doesn’t know how to embed YouTube movies in a post. But I do! So here is a movie of a “die in” (yes, just like the hippies used to do in the 60s!) that took place in Penn Station. It was part of a “day of coordinated actions across the country … organized by a wide spectrum of American Jews committed to peace and justice in Palestine, Israel and the entire region.”
Pay close attention to the participant interviews. “As a Human being, and an American and a Jew…” Looks like these people have learnt well from their Republican adversaries and are using talking points, pre-packaged sound bites, to get their message across. And what’s the message? It’s all Israel’s fault and we’re ashamed. Israel is committing genocide and war crimes in Gaza and Lebanon.
Uh… there is however the small matter of Katyushas, Qassam rockets, cross border attacks, kidnappings, murders and suicide bombers that these fine people failed to address. Oh, I guess that must have been edited out or something.
And the addle-minded little old ladies were in attendance too! Please note the august presence of veteran civil rights activist Dorothy Zellner. Dorothy was a an early member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and apparently had a hand in designing the Black Panther logo, back in the day. These days she’s focused oh shitting on Israel every chance she has. She also works at the powerhouse law school at CUNY. As befits the overall non-entity status of the event, THIS post is the most publicity the non-event got.
Like I said, my jewish conscience is clear and these
freaks deluded individuals speak for no one but themselves.
Please note: Jewschool is a group blog featuring over 30 contributors from 5 countries. Cole’s post is not neccessarily representative of all the other Jewschool members, or its editor Dan Sieradski. Please also note that all Cole did was post the video. There was no comment attached, either pro or anti. Despite the general tone of this post, we like Cole a lot!
