Will Occupy Wall Street Organizers Condemn Anti-Semitic Remarks?

19 Oct

The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement yesterday calling on organizers, participants and supporters of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement to condemn anti-Semitic signs and comments that have  appeared at some of the protest rallies across the country.

Abraham Foxman, ADL National Director, stated that while there is no evidence that these anti-Semitic theories are representative of the larger movement, history demonstrates that economic downturns can embolden anti-Semites to spread malicious conspiracy theories and promote stereotypes about Jews and money.  Meanwhile, some Jewish protestors involved in the movement argue that the focus on anti-Semitism is exaggerated.

What do you think?

    First it would be helpful to know that CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood are involved in the occupy movement . It is part of an attempt to create and arab style march to topple Western culture. Please go to my friend Tom Trento’s website at http://www.theunitedwest.org to see what he and his incredible group of patriots have uncovered.

    If Jews and supporters of Israel are ever to be effective in advocating for ourselves, we must begin with a willingness to remove the political correctness lens and be willing to recognize who our friends and who our enemies truly are. It all begins with this courageous act because if we are unwilling to recognize this truth, we cannot protect ourselves from danger.

    It is my hope & in my prayers to Hashem that American Jews finally realize that they need to give thier votes to the party that supports our values, ideology and our homeland and that is NOT the Democrats.

        What Wrong? Did you read my post? I am a supporter of Israel and my point is the protests organized by Acorn, Obama, CAIR and other groups are NOT pro Israel.
