‘Occupy Boston’ takes Israeli consulate

‘Occupy Boston’ protesters in the US have stormed the Israeli consulate in the city and held a brief sit-in in the building’s lobby, Press TV reports.

On Friday, activists gathered calling for the liberation of Palestine, angry at Israel for intercepting an aid flotilla on its way to the besieged Gaza Strip.

Protesters chanted slogans such as, “not another nickel, not another dime! No more money for Israel’s crimes” and “Vive viva Palestina,” demanding the departure of Israeli consulate officials from the US.

The protest is part of a global movement against social and economic inequalities, and corporate greed.

'Occupy Boston' anti-Israeli rally.

Participants made clear that they are not anti-Semites, but anti-Zionists, critical of the Israeli government’s current policies.

The “Occupy” movement emerged after a group of Americans on September 17 gathered in New York’s financial district to protest against the unjust distribution of wealth in the US and the excessive influence of big corporations on the American politics.

Despite mass arrests and widespread police crackdown, the movement has now spread to major US cities, as well as to other countries, including Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and Portugal.

  1. I’m disappointed that there were only a relative handful of protesters at the Consulate. There should have been hundreds! But I guess that shows that, among American “liberals,” criticism of Israel is beyond the pale. Everyone is afraid of being hit with the term “anti-Semite,” which sticks to a person, because of the pervasive influence of Jews in America, like glue. But, at least some Americans still have courage. That’s good to see.

    Actually, I think the term “anti-Semite” is not only inaccurate, it is insulting to real Semites, who comprise the vast majority of people in the Middle East. Israel is run mostly by Ashkenazim, (“Germans”) who are European Jews. The European Jews are not Semites, but rather Central Asians, related to modern Turks and Georgians. They are descended from the Khazars, pagan phallic worshipers who converted to Judaism in the ninth century. and who lived in what is now southern Russia. They never set foot in the Middle East until the nineteenth century. Most of the Jews in the United States, and the world, are descended from the European Jews. So I think a better term than “anti-Semitism” would be “anti-Khazar,” or even “anti-Ashkenaz.”
