Occupy Wall Street & Anti-Semitism VI

The topic? As usual, Jews and Israel. And it wasn’t pretty:

Partial transcription (starting at 0:48):

Jewish man wearing a yarmulke: I work 65 hours a week.
Protester: You probably live in the Hamptons ‘n’ some shit.
Jewish man: I live in the Hamptons? I live in Brooklyn…I work 62 hours a week. Do you work 62 hours?
Protester: You know what’s funny? Your people own schools and fuckin’ government buildings, but your wives are on welfare. I don’t understand that. I don’t understand that. I met a public assistance officer. And they were Jewish, but their husbands own fuckin’ everything.
Jewish man: I work 62 hours a week. How many hours a week do you work?
Protester: I don’t work. How about them apples?
Jewish man: So why don’t you get a job?
Protester: I don’t need a fuckin’ job.
Jewish man: Why not?
Protester: You don’t need paper! We can grow our own fuckin’ food. We can shoot our own fuckin’ animals. We can do all that shit. We can build our own fuckin’ houses.
Jewish man: How do you get the materials?
Protester: We can just take it from the Earth! You come from the Earth. This comes from the Earth. Everything comes from the Earth, you dumb motherfucker! Like seriously. Technology comes from the Earth, protons, neutrons, electrons.
Jewish man: Is this a real conversation? Is this a real conversation?
Other OWS protester: He’s making points. But he’s making points.
Jewish man: What are the points?
Protester: I don’t need a point. It comes from here (indicating the ground). It came from here for free! Why we gotta pay for it? It’s here for free! Why we gotta pay for it? It’s bullshit. This is bullshit.

More disturbing to me than the anti-Semitic conspiracy theories is the complete ignorance of how economics works.

In addition to the “Jews own everything” meme, the blogger/photographer, Urban Infidel, sadly also uncovered more of the ignorant “Israel is evil” meme, according to Zombie, with one protester praising Palestinian suicide bombers as having the kind of dedication and “righteousness” that the Israelis lack:

Partial transcription (starting at 0:27):

Anti-Israel protester: War — that’s the only thing you understand. Them people in Palestine, you killing ‘em so bad that they gotta strap themselves up with bombs, and go take buses into Israel and blow themselves up and die. Ain’t a Israeli person going into Palestine, strapping themselves up with a bomb, and killed one Palestinian person. They gonna shoot them with guns, they gonna shoot them with [fire]. They ain’t got no heart, because they don’t have no righteousness. There’s no love for that. You got to really be about what you’re saying to sacrifice your life. C’mon, don’t tell me that they’re about that. C’mon, man, don’t talk to me about that, Israel. When you said that, I got to stop you, because what you’re saying is the lies. Actual lie. They’re not about peace. Israel is doing the same thing to the Palestinians that the Germans did to the Jews. Bottom line. They’re doing the same thing to the Palestinians that the Germans did to them.
Anti-Israel protester #2 (pointing to pro-Israel protester): You don’t want to hear the truth. You don’t like the truth! Ha ha!
Anti-Israel protester: You think we about lies? You think I came out here on my day off to just hear some lies? I came out here to bear witness to the truth. You can’t be talking lies in front of the people. C’mon, man. Talking about ‘Israel is about peace.’ It ain’t about peace. They’re about destroying people. If they had ovens, they’d put the Palestinians in ovens. And you know it.
Anti-Israel protester #2: That’s why the Jews come into existence.
Pro-Israel protester: Ain’t nothing about peace when you come to Israel. Israel is totally about war and destruction. And you know it. …
Arabic-speaking man: Can she ask you a question? She’s a journalist from the Middle East, and we cover these stories here.
Middle-Eastern journalist woman: [Asks question in Arabic.]
Arabic-speaking man: [Translating her question] Has there [been] anyone that has responded to what you’re calling for?
Anti-Israel protester: Everybody agrees with what I said. Every word I said, everybody agrees with it.

…and then his interview with the Middle Eastern journalists continues. As Urban Infidel recounts,

All the spewing about Israel caught the attention of an Arab media camera crew, don’t know which one. They, along with their translator took great interest in interviewing this angry man. So one could reasonably assume that this will be broadcast all over the Islamic world.

Israellycool must be thanked for this jaw-dropping video from OccupyDC.  for drawing our attention to this jaw-dropping bonus video from OccupyDC with an unapologetically anti-Semitic DC Occupier:


This picture looks innocent enough — until you zoom in on the ties of Lieberman and Obama:

Star of David.

Star of David.

Oh, those sneaky Jews!

And a little girl was holding up a classic “American flag with Stars of David” sign, a design I’ve seen several times at earlier anti-Israel rallies. The not-so-subtle message is “The Jews control America.”

See these photos (and so much more) in context in Ringo’s truly eye-popping report:

Occupy Wall Street: Zucotti Square Day 41 & Counting - The Crazy Has Set In 


So much has been said about this movement, it has no discernible point, it smells, it's violent, it has rapes, arson, assault, vandalism, theft and psychotics running the place along with a growing rap sheet, so I wasn't sure what else I could find. Since the encampments have become more and more dangerous, I wasn't sure I wanted to risk it, but I went anyway.

I went back to Zucotti Square yesterday because David Crosby and Graham Nash were going to perform and since I had the afternoon free I figured I'd head down to check out the absurd scenery. I missed the show but found something else: the Left's total hatred of Israel and probably Jews. Now, it's never been a secret but to see it openly and unchecked on full display was disturbing.

What struck me immediately was the bivouac-style tents and the permanence of the place. Here below is some video footage of the tents and a couple of OWS'ers defacing an American flag.

Hanging high and in the middle of it all, underscoring the risk of sexual assault in the occupied tent city is a large, painted canvas depicting the Virgin Mary as a protector of women and girls [and men!] from being raped.

How nice.

What can I possibly say about this, except for the draftsman's acute attention to anatomy and detail?

A great place to bring your kids!

In addition to the perversion and profanity I came across the following scenes and here's where it gets even uglier.
The takeaway? Jews are not loved at OWS.

The two gentlemen holding these two signs, above and below, were having a calm discussion about Israel and the Middle East. The guy with the 'end all wars and bombing' sign was pretty laid back and open to listening as the other recounted basic history of the founding of Israel. I have to admit, I was surprised to see an Israel supporter there so I hung out for a while to hear what he had to say.

At one point an older African American guy dressed up in elaborate beads, woven tribal garb and head dress came by and looked at the sign about rockets and Gaza. He asked the man holding it if he really believed what he had written. He that Israel is racist and they are just 'Europeans' who should 'go back to where they came from.' There was a lot of agreement from the small crowd.
As all this was happening I was aware of the rather large black guy immediately to my left. I wasn't paying too much attention to him but I did notice that he was paying very close attention to the conversation. Normally, I don't get involved or talk to the OWSers but when I said that Israel wants peace, the man next to me erupted out of his silence.

He ranted loudly for at least a full 3 minutes before I had the nerve to take out my camera. I made sure to glance over at the line of cops along the barricades because there was no telling what would happen. There were several very tense moments as I wondered if he would start throwing his fists.

All the spewing about Israel caught the attention of an Arab media camera crew, don't know which one. They, along with their translator took great interest in interviewing this angry man. So one could reasonably assume that this will be broadcast all over the Islamic world.

To Be Continued.  Please Keep Checking Back In For Updates.
