Why would they allow a protest so near large Jewish communities??

I’m not so sure how strong and confidence the police feel. What can they do, cancel a ‘peaceful’ demonstration ..? They can only wait until it inevitably gets rowdy. And don’t forget police get a bad rap and have been defunded

If you lived in a state that believes in crime and punishment, you wouldn’t have any reservations as to personal safety, nor what reservations LEO’s have.

I served the nation in Army aviation and refused to move back to my home state after my service. States like NY have elected leaders completely stuck on stupid acting against the US Constitutional beliefs. I moved to West Florida and we love our Governor and we appreciate the men in green, red and especially the men and women in blue.

They just had a big protest in Bay Ridge that caused a lot of problems for the residents there, and to my understanding I’m told they brought in all kinds of people not from the area just to really stir things up.
Yes, I wholeheartedly agree, it is wrong.

You use the word “incite”, but you seem not to understand what it means. There is no proof that they intend to incite violence; if any speaker at the protest does incite violence I am sure NYPD will immediately arrest him, but that’s not likely to happen.

But they are perfectly entitled to “incite” hatred. That is the freedom of expression.

Jews should avoid the area?!
October 25, 2023 11:43 am

Shouldn’t the advice be that Israelis should avoid the area?! Isn’t that what this war is about, Israel vs Palestinians? Sure sounds like an anti-Semitic protest if the advice is that Jews should stay away.
And why should there be a place in NYC that anyone should avoid, let alone a specific ethnicity? I can tell my kids to avoid an area that is dangerous, but police that are tasked with protecting us should not be giving us this advice. They should do their jobs and keep us safe!

October 26, 2023 3:18 pm

No, you fail to know what the war is about. It is the goal of Hamas, Hezbollah,and Iran and it’s proxies to wipe out Israel so it will be remembered no more and to kill all Jews. Right out of Scripture.

Ps 83:4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

All of this has been foretold thousands of years ago, let that sink in. How did the the writer of palms know this was coming? Read all of Ps 82, then Ez 38/39.

I don’t think they can have this cancelled, no matter how much pull we have with politicians. It will be even worse – for our side – to have the protest cancelled – “New York Jews who control the government shut down Palestinian activists”.

What they CAN and SHOULD do is have such a strong police presence that any Yid can walk from one end of the protest to the other without worrying about a scratch.

NOBODY can have it cancelled.

There is not one word in the constitution about borders, and the whole concept of “illegal aliens” and deportation was completely foreign to the USA’s founders. The constitution does NOT give Congress any power to regulate immigration.

And sanctuary cities are completely constitutional, so long as they’re allowed by state law. The tenth amendment gives states the right to refuse to assist federal law enforcement. That is a sacred US tradition that is one of the most basic freedoms.

This is Hashem bringing His children back to Eretz Yisrael. There is no where else to be, no matter how difficult this is to grasp, it is the truth. There are those who chose to stay in Mitzrayim the first Redemption, hopefully there won’t be this time around.

May we offer to pay every pro-terrorist instigator a free one way ticket to Gaza?
Let them enjoy living under the thumbs of the brutal savages they support.
There’s a reason that Jordan and Egypt don’t want to take any Gaza Arabs into their country. Because they know good and well that their only contributions to society will be blowing up body parts to pieces.
Be careful, when you sleep with dogs you’ll wake up with mites.

It is pure Nazism, and again we are scared to go out, need to hide, and what is the next step?
Why are these protests not banned, and all who promote hate crime not jailed?

I don’t live in NY, but why don’t delegations from C.H. meet with the mayor and police commissioner to request that the demonstration be held far from a Jewish community? It’s not too late. We vote and have a say in whether they get elected again.

Also, the Rebbe said we shouldn’t participate in demonstrations. Hashem is the One in charge.

He was 1000% right!!

Rabbi Meir Kahane, OBM, was so right when he proclaimed, “They Must Go!” He proposed that no Arabs be allowed to live in E’Y, that they should be sent to other Arab countries, and that they would be monetarily COMPENSATED.. As we know, he was killed for holding this view..An yet, as history shows, like the Rebbe, he was right..so sad..

Not true

R Kahane HYD said law-abiding Arabs should be allowed to live in EY on the same terms that Israelis are allowed to live in the USA. Full civil rights but no political rights.

Come with bats and jelly donuts

There should be a counter protest with 10,000 Jews standing strong. We come with bats and jelly donuts. It is stated you can arm yourself and carry protection on shabbos during such situations. The protesters can pick the jelly donuts or the bats… their choice but they are getting one or the other .

No counter protest just shows we are weak and these animals can go unabated

No protest

Bombard the mayors office and ask him to stop it.

…FDR banned the German Bund and all groups supporting Nazi or Japanese fascist enemies. The demonstrations stopped cold…just like that.

The Bund was never banned. But in any case FDR didn’t care about the constitution, and after a while the courts started allowing him to get away with it.

Even in war time it is unconstitutional to ban any group merely for advocating the enemy’s cause.

Stay safe

The one thing they should do is block eastern parkway for cars.
No cars should get close from Brooklyn avenue till Rochester !!

"Freedom" to do what?
October 29, 2023 11:35 pm

Granting ” Freedom” to yell anti-semitic rantings to those advocating the murder of Jews is, in my opinion, inciteful; but there has always been, and likely always will be, till Be’at HaMoshiach, a different standard regarding Jews. I’m not sure that “freedom” to rally at Grand Army Plaza would have been granted to groups gathering to spew anti—-( fill in the blank with whatever other minority hatred you like) hate. The Russian Stalinist dictator NikIta Khrushchev Y”SH, once noted that if given enough rope, Western democracies would eventually hang themselves. I’m afraid to admit I am beginning to see that… Read more »
