For those who will want to correct me and say this is a "Palestinian" flag — let me correct you. This flag represents one thing — the ongoing jihad against the Jews. The flag exists for one reason and one reason only: as a banner of promised annihilation of the tiny Jewish state. This flag does not exist. Israel, the tiny Jewish state, is Palestine. This bogus flag has no history. The objective of this flag is a second holocaust. Shame on the Jew-hating political whores (Democrats, of course) Bill Pascrell Jr. and Assemblyman Thomas Giblin , who showed up to give the imprimateur of legitmacy to these annihilationist voters.
PA chief Mahmoud Abbas and US favorite Fayyad have gone on
record saying that no Jews will be allowed to live in Palestine and that
all Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and Jewish neighborhoods
built in post-67 Jerusalem will have to be emptied out before they will
accept their state. They are demanding a judenrein state.
Shame on Paterson, New Jersey — I don't care how big their subversive population is. What's next? An OBL billboard?

— The raising of a flag at City Hall on Sunday was like any of the
dozen or so similar events held in the city each year in a nod to its

That’s because the flag raised — for the first time in Paterson,
and possibly at any city hall in the United States — was Palestinian.
Symbols or assertions of Palestinian statehood are fraught with
political sensitivities, and Khader Abuassab, the event’s organizer,
said he received harassing phone calls before Sunday’s event.
I don't believe it. They are lying. That's what they do. I have a file 3 inches thick. They never have proof.
But no problems were on display Sunday when the flag
was raised in the rain before elected officials and about 150 people.
People cheered, danced, shared sweets and shouted, “Long Live

said. The mayor read a proclamation proclaiming May 19 as Palestinian
American Day in the city and honoring the group’s heritage and
He said he wasn’t concerned with potential political backlash.
“If they’re citizens of the city of Paterson,
they have every right to raise the flag,” Jones said. “There’s nothing
that precludes them as long as they follow the process.” Turks,

Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., D-Paterson, and Assemblyman Thomas Giblin, D-Clifton,
showed up — with Pascrell presenting a letter of Special Congressional
Recognition and Giblin presenting an Assembly resolution marking the
Shavonda Sumter and Benjie Wimberly, both Assembly members, and state Sen. Nellie Pou also sent a joint citation.
Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian ambassador to the United
Nations, said in a speech that the Palestinian leadership thanked the
city for its gesture. He urged local Palestinians to be good citizens
and to continue supporting the struggle for justice in Palestine.
Many Palestinian Americans live and run businesses in South Paterson,
area some call “Little Ramallah” after the West Bank city. Abuassab, a
member of the Arab American Civic Organization, said it was time the
community was recognized.
He put ads in Arabic newspapers about the flag raising
and texted an invitation to friends, community leaders, politicians and
law enforcement officials.
