Kudos to the Coalition for Jewish Values. It’s obscene that the Mayor of New York City and even many leftist Jewicidal leaders would kowtow to this vicious anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, who is a leader of the BDS movement, and a supporter of sharia. Linda Sarsour has said that Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel deserve an ass-whipping and should have their vaginas cut off. She has said that the Christmas Day underwear bomber who tried to blow up a plane on Christmas Day over Detroit was a CIA plot. She stood proudly on a stage with a convicted terrorist who murdered Jews, Rasmea Odeh. She has said nothing is creepier than Zionism, Israel is an apartheid state, Prime Minister Netanyahu is a waste of a human being and a racist, and on and on. She faked a hate crime against herself to score political points nationally by portraying a mentally ill black homeless man as a violent racist. By the way, everyone in the neighborhood knew the man and liked him. And Yeger is right: where is the state of Palestine? What on earth should he apologize for? Stating obvious reality is a crime these days.
“Rabbis demand Sarsour apologize for ‘anti-Semitic narrative,'” Arutz Sheva, March 30, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):
The Coalition for Jewish Values, representing over 1000 traditional rabbis in matters of public policy, is demanding a public apology from activist Linda Sarsour for “peddling in anti-Semitic falsehoods” in order to attack an observant Jewish New York City Councilman, Kalman Yeger.
Yeger observed on Twitter that “Palestine does not exist” while condemning the anti-Semitic statements of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Sarsour responded by calling his statement “this kind of hate” and “bigoted,” and demanding that Yeger “apologize publicly to Palestinian New Yorkers.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday joined Council Speaker Corey Johnson in saying Yeger should apologize or be removed from the City Council committee that oversees immigrant issues. Johnson has final say on committee assignments, Yeger, whose constituents include largely Jewish neighborhoods, refused to backtrack, repeating that “there is no state by that name; there is no place by that name,”
“There has never been a country called Palestine,” said Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, Eastern Regional Vice President of the CJV. “Jews have been connected to the land of Israel continuously for 37 centuries. Find a ‘Palestinian’ writer from the 6th, 16th or 19th Century, and you will find a Jew. In 1948, the Palestine Post became the Jerusalem Post. ‘Palestinian Arabs’ are a late 20th-century creation, concocted for the sole purpose of thwarting the national state of the Jewish people.”
Rabbi Dov Fischer, Rabbi Pruzansky’s Western Regional counterpart, added that “when Ahmed Shukairy launched the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization -ed.) in 1964, the ‘Palestine’ he sought to ‘liberate’ was Tel Aviv and Haifa. It was a ploy — they used the name Palestine because it was too ridiculous to call for the ‘liberation’ of Judea from Jews.”
The CJV further noted that although what was called “Palestine” under the British Mandate includes all of modern-day Jordan, the “Palestine” described by the Palestinian Authority, left-wing groups and terror organizations traces only the borders of Israel’s portion. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas described Jordanian and Palestinian Arabs as “one people living in two states” during a speech in 2015, expressly refuting the notion of a “Palestinian” people separate from Jordanians. Jordan is four times the size of Israel, with a population only 10% larger….
