Jewish students extracted from Boston anti-Israel ‘die-in

Demonstrators fell to the ground as protest leaders read names of Gaza casualties in Operation Protective Edge at rally Saturday

BOSTON – In a corner of America’s oldest public common, some 200 anti-Israel demonstrators held a so-called “die-in” Saturday to protest Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza


For the third time in eight days, Boston police were forced to intervene when a small group of student Israel supporters was swarmed by demonstrators screaming anti-Semitic epithets and initiating physical contact, said students involved in the incident.


On Friday, the day before the “die-in,” more than 1,000 Israel supporters gathered in the same spot of the Boston Common to support the Jewish state’s right to self-defense. Organized by the Israeli American Council, the Friday rally featured speeches from Jewish leaders and calls to defend Israel on social media.Scissors-32x32.png

Groundhog Day Revisited
John Hinderaker
July 20, 2014


I first used the phrase Groundhog Day with reference to the Palestinians in April 2013, in Groundhog Day In the Middle East. Having forgotten that post, I used it again last Monday in For Anti-Semitism, It’s Deja Vu All Over Again. The reference is apt. Anyone observing Hamas’s attacks on Israel, Israel’s effort to neutralize Hamas’s terrorist capabilities, and the international reaction to that effort–not, of course, to Hamas’s terrorist acts–can only feel that he has lived through these events way too many times.


Daniel Greenfield admirably captures the pitiful nature of the Leftists who turn out for anti-Israel protests on these occasions. In France, however, it is Muslims who take to the streets, and the “protests” are considerably more violent:






ISIS, meanwhile, has burned down the 1,800-year-old Syriac Catholic Archdiocese in Mosul:




In a sort of reverse Passover, ISIS activists have marked the homes of Christians with the letter N for “Nassarah,” an Islamic term for Christian, to identify the homes whose inhabitants were to be slaughtered.





Somehow, though, events such as these don’t lead anyone to riot and start fires in Paris, Boston or anywhere else.
