Muslim Protesters Get Slap Down By NYC Jewish Councilman

From Western Journalism

New York City Councilman David Greenfield denounced a group of pro-Palestinian activists who disrupted Thursday’s Council meeting during a discussion on a resolution commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp. Activists had gathered in the balcony of the chamber and shouted “Palestinian lives matter” and displayed a Palestinian flag. Greenfield, the grandchild of Holocaust survivors, delivered an impassioned speech that exposed the protesters as plain anti-Semites.

While we were discussing a resolution regarding the murder of 1.1 million human beings, I will point out that 90 percent of whom were Jewish, but the other 10 percent were political dissidents; they were Jehovah’s Witnesses; they were gays. Those were the people who were being killed together in Auschwitz-Birkenau; while we were discussing that, they had the nerve, the chutzpah, the temerity, to unfurl a Palestinian flag and to yell at us while we were discussing that.

The Brooklyn Democrat Councilman’s voice began to rise as he told the chamber that all the Middle Eastern countries, except Israel, are non-Democratic and persecute those who are different from them.

“We can stop pretending that this is about Israel when the reality is every Middle Eastern country that is in existence today is not Democratic and persecutes people of other faiths, and persecutes gays, and persecutes people that disagree with them, and persecutes people on Twitter, and persecutes women who drive, except one country, which is the State of Israel!”

Mr. Greenfield called out the demonstration for what it was:

So what you saw here today was naked blind anti-Semitism! That’s what you saw and that’s what you watched and that’s what you witnessed.

Greenfield continued his rant by accusing the demonstrators for being upset because “Hitler did not finish the job.”

He only wiped out half of my family and only by the grace of God is the other half, me, the grandchild, still alive today. That’s why those people are upset.

The Orthodox Jewish Councilman sharply criticized the protesters for disrespecting the discussion about sending a delegation of 15 members on a nine-day trip to Israel later this year.

Shame on them for hating Jews. Shame on them for hating people. Shame on them for disrespecting the most diverse, democratically elected body in the United States of America, and that’s why we go to Israel.

Greenfield concluded:

“I am embarrassed at what happened here today, but I am pleased that we finally see what this is all about – good old-fashioned anti-Semitism.”


Happy to hear that some others are finally standing up and saying what needs to be said! If more of us did this on a daily basis when we are confronted by anti-semetic remarks and actions we just might make a difference.

Just because a holocaust happened once doesn’t mean that it can’t happen again.

Yes…Palestinian lives matter but ….if they didn’t start the fighting then they wouldn’t be losing lives. They obviously don’t care much for Palestinian lives…there actions speak louder than their words. If they did care, they would lay down their weapons and live peacefully beside Israel.  Israel has the right to defend herself in any which way she sees fit.

    The article describes the protesters as “pro-Palestinian activists” so it may be leap to conclude that they are Muslims. Given that this is NY and they were chanting “Palestinian lives matter” (obviously borrowed from the most recent leftist crusade “black lives matter”) it may be a safer bet to assume these are your typical leftists, most of whom have taken up the cause of the Palestinians because this is what you’re supposed to do if you’re an ignorant leftist. Any average person can observe the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and reasonably ascertain that the Palestinians are the ones who refuse to “give peace a chance;” but it takes a very special person – a leftist – to see it the other way in spite of what’s obvious.

    I’m making this point because of the irony of a democrat councilman being the target of nasty leftist lunacy. One would hope that the experience might inspire some soul-searching on his part.

      True…. Activists can be other than muslim. There are many leftists that side with Palestine.

      Most Jewish folk are democrats….not sure why that is. It’s not like the Dems have really ever helped! One can only hope that Mr. Greenfield will see the light soon! 🙂

        Why are most Jews democrats? It’s tradition, dating back to when the Democrats won World War Two and freed them from the Kamps. (And have never let them forget it).

    New York’s liberal Jews are a BIG part of the problem. IF these morons would wake up and see just WHO it is that foments this anti-Jewish hatred, he would denounce his OWN party. Good post, but this clown needs to look in a mirror.

    • Blessed B says:

      Yep…. I don’t know what it will take for them to wake up and smell the coffee.

      One would think that they would remember the mistakes made by their ancestors during the rise of Hitler. They didn’t believe that he would be so evil as to exterminate them…even when they were put in the ghettoes and round-ups were being carried out. Most still thought that it wouldn’t be very long before life got back to normal for them. Unfortunately…..many died waiting for things to change back.

      How long does one need to finally understand the hatred and to take action?

    Dear Muzzie protestors:
    You can hate Jews, I don’t care. They’re used to being hated.
    You can hate Christians. I don’t care. We’re used to being hated.
    You just cannot ACT on your hatred.
    Because if you act on your hatred around me, you will be on the receiving end of MY hatred.

    On another day, and a different anniversary, these haters will be screaming about something else. They hate everybody and everything – yesterday was just Israel’s turn.

    You have to wonder if they even know what happened at Auschwitz and why it happened. It had nothing to do with Palestinians.

    • Blessed B says:

      Hating against Israel is an everyday occurrence. I see it often on other blogsites I visit. I never turn a blind eye to it…. I let them have it with both barrels!

      One needs to be a special kind of stupid to not Know what happened at Auschwitz or the many other death camps….or WHY it happened. They don’t care I would suspect! Just as long as the Jews are being blamed for it all.

    Good one BB. These people have been indoctrinated and educated since birth to hate Jews. Jews are the cause of all ills, everything that is wrong is the fault of Jews. They know nothing of the history of the Nazis and won’t believe that millions of Jews were slaughtered – it’s not convenient to the cause. Just kill Jews and all will magically be right with the world.

    I often wonder how many people have ever bothered to look at a map and see just how small Israel is – compared to their enemies. Put yourself in their place and just imagine how difficult life must be knowing that millions of others want your death – for what? Just being a Jew.

    I’m all in for Israel, our friend, our ally, and the only other democratic nation in that part of the world.

    • Blessed B says:

      Thanks Garnet!

      Yep….. it’s the indoctrination! Jews are the perpetual enemy in their little minds. Not only have they probably NOT looked at a map, nor understand the history of the Nazi Regime…. They probably are clueless also to what the Jewish people have actually given to the whole world by being a part of our society.

      The medical inventions that are saving lives everyday are just one of these! Many were invented by various Jews. Medicine – 28% of World Total Nobel Prizes awarded to Jews! While Jews are approximately 0.25% of the world’s population, Jews make up approximately 22% of all Nobel Prize laureates worldwide. From a pool of 12 million Jews which are 0.2% of the World’s Population (2 out of every 1,000 people)

      Literature, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, and Peace…..

      There is a very long list! If only they wanted to know!


      Compare that to how many Muslims….

      From a pool of 1.4 BILLION ( so they say) Muslims which are 20% of the world’s population (2 out of every 10 people)….


      1988 – Najib Mahfooz


      1978 – Anwar El-Sadat

      1994 – Yasser Arafat *

      2003 – Shirin Ebadi


      1999 – Ahmed Zewail


      Abdus Salam

      * NOTE: Norwegian, Kaare Kristiansen, was a member of the Nobel Committee. He resigned in 1994 to protest the awarding of a Nobel “Peace Prize” to Yasser Arafat, whom he correctly labeled a “terrorist.”

      After reviewing this list, can you supply a reason for the large discrepancy between the Arab/Islamic population’s contribution to the world body and that of the Jew? There are 165 Jews listed as opposed to 6 from the Arab side.


      Like you…..I’m all for Israel! I’m sticking with the side that have more intelligent human beings! 🙂
