Look closely at those “spontaneous” Palestinian protests in the United States, and something ugly emerges…

Behind some of the largest protests, you will find organizers, agitators, and activists from the progressive movement. Some claim that the Palestinian cause is their cause.

How can this be? How can any rational human being support terrorists who behead babies, mutilate children in front of their parents, urn people alive, and call home to celebrate that they just killed other human beings with their bare hands? Taking pictures of the butchery as souvenirs of “good times?”

The answer is simple: if you follow radical progressive, intersectional theology, which divides humanity into classes, colors, sexes, and other politically useful categories on the path to power.

Radical intersectional theology, with its roots in feminist theory, is an academic's way of considering how various social identities (e.g., race, gender, class, sexuality, and other identity markers) combine to warp power to create systemic oppression.

And that one must understand this intersectionality to analyze current corrupt political systems to promote a more inclusive and fair understanding of social justice.

Proponents demand that one must highlight the experiences of marginalized groups to challenge traditional political narratives that contribute to inequality.

  • If you claim that Palestinians are poor and ill-educated and Israelis are wealthy,  successful, and well-educated, the Palestinians must be oppressed.

  • If you define the Palestinians as “people of color” and Israelis are white, they must be oppressed.

  • If you claim that others ruled over so-called Palestinian lands, you can argue that the rulers were the colonialists and those ruled were the colonialized; the Palestinians must be oppressed.

  • Likewise, with the interchangeable words occupier and occupied, if the Palestinian land is occupied (which it isn't), the Palestinians must be oppressed.  

So, it is logical that those communists who want to support chaos to bring about their desired revolution would naturally use the “Palestinian” cause to further their agenda by claiming to stand “in solidarity” with those they deem oppressed.

An academic bastardization of history…

Arabs, since the term "Palestinian” was artificially crafted by a New York public relations agency, are considered Semitic people. The term "Semitic" originally referred to a language family that includes Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, and several other languages. Over time, the term has been extended to encompass the ethnic and cultural groups associated with these languages.

Arabs, who primarily inhabit the Arab world in the Middle East and North Africa, are Semitic people. The Arabic language belongs to the Semitic language family, and Arabs share linguistic, cultural, and historical connections with other Semitic-speaking groups. It's important to note that being Semitic is primarily a linguistic and cultural classification and does not imply a specific racial or genetic identity.

The actual fight in the Middle East…

Believe it or not, the fight is not between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations. It is between 12th-century Islam and the modern Western culture.

The struggle between Islam and modern Western culture is said to be a complex and multifaceted issue involving a clash of religious, cultural, political, and social values. It encompasses debates over issues such as secularism, individual rights, gender equality, freedom of expression, and the role of religion in public life. If you do not submit to Islam, you are to be killed or enslaved, whereas the Western culture is tolerant and more welcoming. 

If the State of Israel did not exist, the Middle East would be consumed by the war between the Sunnis and Shia.

The historical conflict between Sunni and Shia Muslims has deep roots in the early history of Islam and continues to influence current geopolitical dynamics. The primary source of the division lies in a disagreement over the rightful leadership and succession after the death of the Prophet Muhammad in the 7th century.

Yes, the communists are here!

Pro-Palestinian protesters block bridges in Boston, San Francisco during rush hour to call for cease-fire in Gaza.

American Jewish group ‘IfNotNow’ calls for a cease-fire in the Middle East, shutting down the bridge near Boston University.

Pro-Palestinian protesters blocked traffic on bridges in Boston and San Francisco during rush hour Thursday morning to call for a cease-fire in Gaza as Israel continues to target Hamas leadership more than a month after the militant group’s deadly incursion into Israel.

On the Boston University bridge, the group IfNotNow, which says it represents members of Boston’s Jewish community, chanted “Cease-fire now!” and demanded that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., support an immediate cease-fire and use her influence to stop the Israeli government’s military action in Gaza. 

The protest slowed traffic to a trickle on the bridge, which connects Boston and Cambridge, as the group held signs that said, “Let Gaza Live,” and unfurled a banner across the roadway that read, “Jews say: Ceasefire now.” 

“We care about Palestinian lives; we only want to hurt Hamas,” one protester on the bridge told NBC Boston, while another said, “There can’t be peace for Jews unless there is peace for Palestinians.” <Source>

Who is IfNotNow, and how are they funded? 

According to their IRS 990 tax return, their mission is “To effect change in the American Jewish Community to end support for the occupation of Palestine. And to stand for freedom  and dignity for all Israelis and Palestinians.”

IfNotNow is a far-left organization that protests Israel’s control of the West Bank, its policies in the Gaza Strip, and Israeli policy towards Arabs.

IfNotNow has drawn criticism from within the Jewish community over its tactics and its stances. Among the criticisms is that IfNotNow is more interested in getting publicity through its protests than engaging in a dialogue with the leadership of the Jewish community.

IfNotNow was formed in 2014 following Operation Protective Edge, a campaign by the Israeli military against Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip to combat Hamas rocket attacks on Israelis. The organization demanded that American Jewish organizations end their support for or neutrality toward Israeli control of the West Bank.

IfNotNow’s founders and leaders are Yonah Lieberman, Kara Segal, Max Berger, and Simone Zimmerman. Zimmerman worked for the 2016 presidential campaign of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Sanders fired Zimmerman after a profanity-laced Facebook post criticizing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came to light.

It received a $20,000 grant from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, which has funded BDS-supporting groups like Jewish Voice for Peace.

The other group involved in Wednesday’s protest, IfNotNow, was founded during the 2014 Gaza War by young Jews “angered by the overwhelmingly hawkish response of American Jewish institutions” to the 2014 Gaza War.

Soros’s Open Society gave $400,000 to IfNotNow in 2019 and 2021, according to the Free Beacon.

The group’s total income in fiscal year 2020–2021 was $396,226. According to NGO monitor, the group received $160,000 from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund between 2017 and 2023 and $45,000 from the Tides Foundation. IfNotNow has also received thousands of dollars from the New Israel Fund’s Progressive Jewish Fund and the Foundation for Middle East Peace.

The group stages protests and sit-ins at the headquarters of American Jewish communal organizations and runs “small, weekend-long orientation trainings on our movement DNA – our collective strategy, story, and structure.”

It has also run training seminars for summer camp counselors to “develop programming introducing Palestinian narratives and…’the moral costs of occupation.’”

During a series of Passover “liberation Seders” in 2016, members were arrested for trespassing and disorderly conduct. Members in Boston were arrested when they chained themselves inside the Boston AIPAC lobby in 2016.

The group has been involved in numerous controversies, including in May 2017, when members organized a protest against Jerusalem Day and the March of the Flags outside of Damascus Gate, in which several protesters were arrested by Israeli police and in February 2017, when activists were arrested for interrupting the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during confirmation hearings for David Friedman and his nomination as US Ambassador to Israel. In June 2017, members were expelled from the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia after creating a “pop-up exhibit about 50 years of Occupation.”

IfNotNow was also behind a June 2018 publicity stunt in which its members crashed a Birthright trip and encouraged participants to instead join a Breaking the Silence tour. IfNotNow members also harassed Birthright participants while they waited to board a flight from Israel to New York, shouting that “Birthright goes against Jewish morals.”

In May 2021, IfNotNow released a list of names of individuals killed in the fighting and urged people to recite the Jewish Mourner’s Prayer. However, more than 40 individuals on the list were Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists, according to NGO Monitor.

It wasn’t the first time the group had offered its condolences for terrorists. In May 2019, after terrorist groups fired more than 600 rockets and mortars toward Israel, IfNotNow called the death of Imad Mohammad Nseir, a member of a rocket launching unit of the Kataeb Humat al-Aqsa organization, “devastating.”

After the October 7 terrorist attacks, IfNotNow said it “cannot and will not say today’s actions by Palestinian militants are unprovoked.”

“Every day under Israel’s system of apartheid is a provocation. The strangling siege on Gaza is a provocation,” the statement added.

The group claimed the blood of those killed in the attack “is on the hands of the Israeli government, the US government which funds and excuses their recklessness, and every international leader who continues to turn a blind eye to decades of Palestinian oppression, endangering both Palestinian and Israelis.” <Source>

Bottom line…

Hamas faces an existential threat at the hands of the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) and desperately needs a cease-fire to escape, re-group, and re-arm. The communists are trying desperately to keep the conflict alive.

It is disgusting that several nations, organizations, and individuals are exacerbating and exploiting the suffering of fellow human beings for their own self-interests, be they power, profits, recognition, or the gratification of warped minds bent on destruction.

The claim the matter is complex, diverse, and nuanced is utter nonsense. Those who claim there is a need for an ongoing dialogue and negotiation toward understanding and cooperation are disingenuous.

There can be no compromise between good and evil. And if you do not consider beheading or mutilating babies or burning babies alive in kitchen ovens while celebrating and documenting your behavior – you are evil and beyond redemption. You deserve to be eradicated from the face of the Earth.

There has never been a more colonizing religion than Islam. To claim there is intersectionality between Islam and queer and transgender people is to ignore the fact that these people will be killed in Islamic countries. -- yet these fools support Hamas. 

We are so screwed.
