Don’t Let Palestinian Extremists Hijack Ferguson, Staten Island Protests

A winter of discontent is brewing in America.

Over the last fortnight, large parts of the country have seethed with anger, first at the decision of a grand jury in Ferguson, Mo., not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown—18 years old, and black—and second, at the decision of a grand jury in New York not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the Staten Island police officer who placed Eric Garner—43 years old, and black—in the chokehold that contributed to his death minutes later…

…[T]he toxic politics of the Palestinian solidarity movement has emerged in the Ferguson and New York protests. Essentially, those activist movements dedicated to the goal of eliminating the State of Israel have tried to hijack the debate about policing in America, and the standard, predictable obscenities have flowed as a consequence. A journalist friend of mine who was covering the Garner protests in Staten Island emailed me a photo of a sign laid on the spot where Garner died, bearing the words, “Resistance is Justified from Ferguson to Gaza.” Far worse, a Facebook group pushing the slander that Israel is an apartheid state posted a photo of Jewish concentration camp inmates behind barbed wire with the tag line, “I Can’t Breathe”…

    Don’t flame me for dissenting here, but Ferguson/NYC protests have highjacked themselves, they are so over the top. So why be upset if other leftist thugs come on board? One should not care any more, at this sad stage of things. WIth Obama and the U.S. media cartel whipping up racist hate, in support of the thugs, who cares at this point?

      I am with you on this. The Palestinian solidarity movement has a track record of poisoning and destroying the other movements it latches onto. In this case, as in most cases, it is a good thing, as those who would join with these leeches do so willingly out of their own moral decay.

      Good point. I mean it is so patently stupid to state ferguson is “occupied” it might all backfire on them. The church where Brown’s funeral was held was burned the Paster blamed the KKK or some such white group but I gotta wonder if the deliberate targeting of his church had anything to do with how his church gave lie to the CAIR associated complaints that Brown was a shaheed. Plus we all know how Islamists feel about burning churches in general.

    I burnt my house down as a protest I was so angry that I did not get justice and that we could not just immediately hang that policeman!

    It is the government’s fault and they need to buy me a new home!
