Two Jews were arrested for attending the JDL counter protest at the AIPAC Conference in Washington DC. They face serious charges. They need our financial support to cover legal representation. Please make a contribution today and share this message.
For over 70 years Jews have been saying “Never Again”! And in order to show the world that we mean it, we have established a strong, vibrant and viable Jewish state. Seventy years after the end of the Holocaust the pledge of “Never Again” has been put to the test. Israel is surrounded by enemies on all sides; enemies that pledge to wipe it off the face of the earth. But the biggest test is not the behavior of the enemy but the behavior of our friends. Our closest allies are plotting to undermine our security by allowing our enemies a path to develop a nuclear weapon. They have plotted against us by undermining our sovereignty at the UN.
And they are allowing universities to become hotbeds of anti-semitic activity in the Western World.
On Sunday March 26, 2017, a group of over a thousand professional provocateurs converged on Washington DC to protest an Annual AIPAC meeting. They were given free reign by DC Police. They were allowed to block entrances, spout vile antisemitic speeches and harass convention attendees. They were opposed by a tiny group of Israel allies that roughly amounted to 50 people. DC Police demonstrated remarkable leniency to the aggressive protesters.
One of them was allowed to enter a group of pro-Israel folks and shove a disabled deaf man. Since DC Police was demonstrating a hands-off approach, Jewish defenders took matters into their own hands and fought back. We showed the world that when Jews say “Never Again” – we mean it. It did not end well for the guy who started the confrontation. Unfortunately the story doesn’t end there. This time police decided to intervene.
But they did not intervene to protect a tiny number of Jews. They decided it was time to show who is in charge and who enforces the law. They arrested two people. One was a disabled man who was attacked; the other – a person who was standing a few feet away from the scuffle and had nothing to do with the confrontation except that he was pinpointed by one the “witnesses” on the other side.
Immediately the news broke out about “violent Jewish thugs attacking innocent Palestinian man”. We will address the “innocent Palestinian man” question later.
But the two guys that stood up to a bully are now being charged with assault and a hate crime in District of Columbia.
This is a call for action to all Jews that say “Never Again” to show that we mean it. Please help two of our brothers fight to prove their innocence and against the injustice that is being carried out against them. Donate as much as your generosity allows because it’s not going to be an easy fight. Donate, because we need to show to the world that we don’t leave our brothers and sisters on their own when they risk their life and freedom to protect us.
Thank you all!
