Sydney’s Nakba Day Shenanigans

Earlier this week, on “Nakba Day”, a group of anti-Israel, pro-terror demonstrators, marched in a rally in the heart of Sydney, following a Supreme Court ruling allowing it to go ahead and inconvenience commuters since “it should be treated just like Anzac Day or Australia Day”(!)

Here are a couple of photos from the rally.

Just another night on the town with the girls

"Maybe if I fold my flag, the camera won't notice the gun on it"

And here’s video from it, where you can see their exploitation of a Holocaust survivor to further their cause, as well as the many Hizbullah flags.

Despite the prevalence of these Hizbullah flags, they don’t appear on anti-Israel sites like this showing photos from the event, nor this video romanticizing it.

You can read an account of the rally here, including further evidence of the anti-Israel protesters trying to cover up their true goals:

With the march completed, some protesters began to chant “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya-yahood, jaish Mohamed sama’ud”  (Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return), but were told by organisers to desist, as in not now and not here.

 No. Tell us how you really feel.

And this account includes the sentence “The rally was peaceful and there was no trouble” right before the first photo I posted above. Yeah, peaceful if waving flags of terror organizations hellbent on destroying Israel is considered peaceful.

The sad thing is, to these haters, nothing says “peace” better than eradicating the Jewish state.

    They should do something constructive like build a Nakbaland theme park in the West Bank with rides like “Right of Return” roller coaster and “Throw the Jew Down the Well” plunge.

      I wouldn’t put it past them.

  • Shy Guy

    I’ll join them by raising a glass of whine at tonight’s Shabbat dinner.

    The parade of losers.

    I wish all islamofascists and their socialist dhimmis a…

    Happy Eternal Nakba!

    May all their jihads turn into Nakbas!

    Jim LOL – thankyou ;D

    I am from Sydney, and the level of tacit and outright bigotry on this issue is astounding. Whenever I get into a conversation with a muslim, I always ask what they want in regard to palestine, regardless of how we get there, what do they see as a solution?. What is their preferred outcome? What is the end goal? None can ever answer. They just stammer with their mouths ajar. Because they know their wishes are so vile that they cannot let them be known. ‘Taqiyya’, dissimulation, wolf in sheeps clothing, whatever way you look at it, this religion is evil.

    I don’t follow any religion but I also think people can believe what they want, as there is no way of stopping it. What we can stop, is the actions people take. If they wish to realise their violent prophecies they can expect a swift and crushing response from those of us who have devoted our life to knowledge and understanding of the universe, as opposed to one book(koran) and some scribbled hearsay(hadith). Good luck to them using 7th century mentalities in a 21st century conflict.

    I was there. It was not a large protest — mostly white college kids, old school socialists and communists. There were some Hezbollah supporters (three carrying flags including one wearing a Nasrallah pendant around his neck). A notorious local Neo-Nazi (Ross “The Skull” May) stood with the Hezbollah supporters and marched with them. They were clearly together for the event.

    There was no significant Palestinian Arab presence, if any.

    The chants included “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” and “Israel, Israel, USA, how many kids have you killed today”.

    Press TV were there to file an obviously pre-prepared story, emphasizing the police attempt to stop the march, which was described as a political conspiracy by some of the organizers.

    Interesting that even the SMH didn’t even bother to cover the protest itself.

    • Jess

      Ross the skull may, is that the crazy old white man that was interupting/ annoying all the peace protesters by shouting hate filled rants? I was there too… And, sorry, but it was really clear the young men you refer to as ‘hezbollah supporters’ were taking the piss out of him. It was very amusing actually.

      There was plenty of Palestinian presence. Just because we weren’t wearing hijabs (some of us are christian) and living up to the ‘wog’ stereotype you assume you didn’t see us. You know most of us are educated and assimilated. We were there, and will continue to be, until lady justice takes off her blindfold and sees the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

      • Norman B.

        If that happened, you’d be a dead man walking.

      • JFS

        How were Palestinian people represented in terms of the speeches? All I heard were socialists, unionists, and other people with political agendas against capitalism and/or the west. If there was any mainstream Palestinian presence or voice, it was in no way obvious. The event appeared to be a purely political orchestration.

        I don’t know why you put Hezbollah supporters in scare quotes, they were carrying Hezbollah flags.

        Ross May was standing with those supporters, and marched with them.

        It’s sadly unsurprising to see who crawls out of the woodwork to demonize the Jewish state under the pretext of supporting Palestinians.

    • mzk1

      For those of you who aren’t old enough, they obviously stole the old anti-vietnam war change – “LBJ(*), How many kids have you killed today” (the last time, by the way, that a Democrat in power received serious touble from the Left).

    what a surprise, Jess is a Christian. How much of a history do Christians and Muslims have of conspiring to murder and subjugate Jews? Not just in old times, to this very day.

    I bet the solution Jess has in mind involves the destruction of Israel and the over-running of its Jewish population by Muslims.

    Christian hypocrisy is ridiculous. On the one hand, Jesus died for their sins, and act of love by God, who knows all. On the other hand, they hold the crucifixion of Jesus by the Romans against Jews and their descendants to this very day. Not a very intelligent bunch. Always remember cross-bearers, ethnically, culturally and religiously, Jesus was a Jew. What he preached was Jewish thinking of the time. They just didn’t accept him as the messiah. They didn’t accept the nut job Muhammad either. Big difference between how Jesus and Muhammad dealt with rejection though. You would be forgiven for thinking that your average Christian today has no idea of the teaching of Jesus, by their rabid anti-Jewish thoughts, and are actually good(but confused) little Muslims as Islam states, who will join forces to rid the world of those pesky Jews who don’t follow either of your cults of personality. The root of both your religions are Jewish, and it pains you that you cannot subjugate them and bend them to your will, because it takes away from your legitimacy.

    I used to be a ‘useful idiot’ for Islam, post 9-11, I vigorously defended Muslims and Islam based on the incorrect assumption that all the followers of the monotheist religions are basically the same. How wrong was I. The more I have looked into Islam(as Muslims themselves have suggested I do), the more I have peeled back the facade of dissimulation, the more ugly and nasty the true face of Islam becomes.

    ‘God willing…’ they say, after uttering something vile about murdering non-Muslims. Well champs, I guess your God isn’t willing, are they? God must love Jews more than you to keep you losing like this. Must hurt to live with that mentality, and it is entirely of your own making.

    • Norman B.

      The big difference between Judaism and other religions is that the revelation at Sinai, including the Ten Commandments, was a public event, witnessed “in the sight of the nations.” Other religions importune adherents to accept on faith the private revelations of their founders, whether they be Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, etc.

      • matt

        Sorry Norm, you are never going to get me to buy any religious stuff. Didn’t Moses go up the mountain alone? And when he returned, had not the people started worshipping false idols? Hardly sounds like a public revelation ;)

        I judge a religion on how they view and treat people. The ‘magical’ side of things is just fantasy as far as I am concerned. But I have no problem with other people believing it, provided it doesn’t lead them to some belief that they can treat others in a sub-standard fashion.

        • Shy Guy

          You are in error about several facts regarding the Revelation at Sinai. While Moses went up alone, what took place, what was heard and seen was witnessed by the entire nation, approximately 3 million men, women and children.

          As for the Golden Calf, as much as it was unforgiveable, go back to the Torah and carefully read how many people were involved, as well as who the instigators were and how they convinced people who were panicking to join them.

          Reference reading: A Rational Approach to the Torah’s Divine Origin

          By all means, continue to believe in what you wish but at least let’s get the circumstances straight.

          • matt

            lol Shy Guy, you might want to read above that I follow no religion, I don’t presume to know what can not be known. I am therefore an agnostic. I also understand how bias works in analysing works of historical significance.

            How many people followed a cow, or how many people saw Moses go up a mountain is quite irrelevant to my argument that the revelation was to Moses alone. You may argue that there was some phenomena witnessed by people around the mountain, but they were not with Moses.

            I’m on your side as I believe Islam is morally corrupt, but I doubt you want to get into an argument of religious validity with me, you will only get yourself worked up, as there is no way you can convince me on a matter of spiritual faith ;)

            • Shy Guy

              As I previously ended off, believe in what you wish.

        • mzk1

          I’m not here to tell you what to believe, but if you judge a religion by how they treat people, I assume you run like hell (excuse the expression) away from atheism – 100 – 200 million murdered.

          • matt

            I am definitely NOT a fan of atheism.

            Atheism is also not a religion. Although it IS a faith based philosophy. They have faith that they are absolutely correct in matters of spirituality.

            And in that sense, every atheist I have ever met reminds me of a religious fundamentalist – if you don’t believe what they believe, then they take a pious stance, and look down their nose at you. Funny really.

            I enjoy seeing Dawkins publicly ridicule religious zealots on matters of social inequity and scientific education, but I don’t like the mans attitude.

            Finally, I find atheism boring. I like mythology.

            Also, Shy Guy, in the same breath you apparently tell me what to believe(by pointing to the torah as fact), and then tell me I can believe what I want. lol. Understand, those not blinded by faith are able to look at things somewhat more objectively. I don’t think you can argue that point, though, you can try!

            • Shy Guy

              No. I didn’t “tell you” what to believe. I pointed out inaccuracies of events you mentioned in your first post and then I linked to something I believe in, from what I certainly view as a rational approach.

              Grow up.

              • matt

                ahh, you most certainly did(and still are), and see, you’re getting yourself worked up!

                You point to torah as fact, not as belief. Please don’t be disingenuous. Own your statements.

                Fundamentalists of any type are dangerous hypocrites in my book. You openly display the hypocrisy, I wonder if you also believe that the violent old religious edicts from some of those incredibly ugly and repugnant stories in the torah should exist today?

                My view of Jews is based on most of them having a realistic view of ancient texts, unlike muzzies and fundo chrizzies. There is always some who will buck the trend though.

                The rise of the religious fundamentalists in Israel is disturbing, not only in terms of social degradation, but they don’t work or serve so it also means a decline in Israeli economy and security.

                Never mind though, you can always just put all your hope in ‘god willing’ like bungling Islamic terrorists. Fundos of any creed have more in common than they have differences.
